Optiplex Gx110 Freezing on Bios Post

I have a Dell Optiplex GX110 that freezes during the intial bios post. The white bar fills either about 1/4 or 3/4's of the way and just freezes. I tried geting into bios, but you need to finish loading the white bar in order to get in. I have bios Version A05. Before I can flash A09, I need to finish loading the bios post. I tried reseting the Bios by reseting Cmos and have pulled out the battery. Am I missing something. Any Help would be greatly apreciated. Thanks, Rogue

Re: Optiplex Gx110 Freezing on Bios Post

The only thing I can think of is there should be a jumper pin that on the mother board that resets the cmos. Unplugging the battery does not clear the cmos rom. My guess would be the cmos rom is currupted and unfortunatly you need the rom loaded before you can flash and replace it. My advice is ditch it.

Can I install windows on my dell optiplex gx110 using flash drive(USB)?

I would say yes, as long as you can get it boot from the USB. Check BIOS. Are installing you Win 95, 98, or XP? I ask because the manual has reference to Y2K.

You just want to keep it as a Linux box. Have Fun!

Non display for DELL GX 110PC Desktop

Either your monitor is bad or the video card inside the computer is bad. To isolate the problem try a different monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. If the borrowed monitor works, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not work, then the video card inside your computer is bad.

If I remember correctly, that Dell has two memory module slots, so 2 512 mb modules of non-ecc pc133 memory is the max that the system board will allow.
This is controlled by the system board chipset, and not by the bios.

Things to check, go to BIOS F2, reset defaults and reboot, see if the HDD is seen. If it is, the battery on the motherboard is likely dead and needs replacement (Watch battery at Walmart, 3 dollars)

Dell Optiplex GX110 will not come on when I press button but i hear clicking sound is there any way I can fix this problem?

A gx110 is pretty much uneconomically repairable. If the system is powering on, getting video but not booting, then the clicking is likely the hard drive. Of you are not getting any video, then post what the Power LED and the diag LEDs on the back of the tower indicate.

Dell optiplex gx110 device detection problem

I'm guessing that the computer is not booting at all. This is saying that it cannot find any hard drive to talk to. Drives are labeled in the computer code with numbers starting at 0. There are up to 2 drives on an IDE ribbon cable, the Primary, and the "slave" or secondary. So, possibilities are that your hard drive died, the power connector to it came loose, or the power supply itself is having an issue with that connection that is attached to the hard drive.
