    Please check and see:

    1. What colour is the light on the power button, does it stay on or flash?

    2. This computer has a set of diagnostic lights (likely marker A,B,C,D) which of these are on if any?

    Is the fan running now?

  • Anonymous Mar 25, 2014

    About 2 months ago my fan started running very high in the afternoon or if I was playing a game online. Suddenly this morning I turn the unit on and its running extremely slow. The fan still comes on but not at the high speed it had been doing. I can not go online at all. If I go to open an application I can go cook and eat lunch before the app is available. I have had this computer for about 3 years, is it worth fixing, or even fixable?

I had same problem today and i tested my machine and solved the problem at last.
the problem is the thermal value that your mainboard sets for your cpu.
please replace the mb.
ps: before this process,i tried almost everything . cpu fan , memory , cpu , cables ,case ... everything. but the problem is on your mb.

Optiplex gx280 won't boot and cpu fan goes faster


Sounds like a bad motherboard, I try resetting the bios , removing everything but the video , could be a bad power supply too (if you have one jump the wires in there as a test). you can buy those dell MBs cheap on fleabay.

Dell Optiplex GX280 - On power ON , no Fan movement no display


Confirm no leaking or bulging capacitors on your mothboard.
refer to here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

As this was a common problem with the GX280.
If found, you will need to replace the capacitors.

The other check is to make sure the heatsink is fitted correctly, perhaps reaply the thermal paste if you have any. I know that high temps would switch the GX280 off.

Problem withe dell gx280 fan and display


Unfortunately this seems so be a motherboard problem, Dell's solution is to replace the motherboard I'm not sure there's much you can do at home or work to fix this - if it's still under warranty get dell to replace the motherboard if not im afraid its the bin for it sorry

GX280 - is it the motherboard?


Go here and download this program.

http://www.download.com/SpeedFan/3000-2094_4-10067444.html

This program will control your fan speed based on your cpu temp. It's main use is to quiet fan noise.
