    Well, the GX-1 is quite the workhorse but has been around for a long time! I'm leaning towards it's dead or dying but let's look for a few things. First, when you power it up, is the power button green, maybe orange or even not at all? Do you hear or see any indications that it is running at all- sounds, beeps, etc? Next, have you tried a second monitor to see if it duplicates the same message? (These are just troubleshooting steps I'm having you go through but it's nice to rule out some stuff.) Have you installed a graphics card in it or is it still running on the onboard video? Let me know and we'll take it further if need be.

Dell Optiplex GX1 not recognizing all hard drives.


Hello,
If you connect the drives using one single ribbon cable with two connectors on it then you need to set the drives to Master/Slave using the jumpers on the drives. Master being your OS drive.
If you are running a very old Operating System, make sure it can support a 20GB drive.
