Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop
I have a Dell GX270. My machine has been in storage for about a year and a half and when I first started it, it behaved okay, brought up Windows XP as expected, but reported a low internal battery voltage when it was going through BIOS POST checks. Didn't think much of it until I switched it on the next day and Zip, Nada, didn't even get past POST checks. Checked BIOS settings via F2 at startup and it didn't even have a HDD recognised, IDE HDD set to OFF in BIOS setup. Checked the HDD in another machine and it works fine. Replaced the CMOS battery a CR2032 and still no change. Tried a different HDD in the GX270 and still nothing. Even with new battery in I reset the CMOS memory and still doesn't recognise the original HDD, so I am completely stuck! Anyone know of a cure for this?
AFTER THE COMPUTER STANDIING SO LONG 1YEAR.
CHECK THE ELECTRICS.MAYBE CHANGE THE PSU.

check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease might be getting to hot
another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit
hope this helps
