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

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.

Dell Optiplex GX110 currently runs 128mb sdram pc125 cl3.0 . Am I correct to assume maximum upgrade would be 2 x 256mb sdram pc133 non-ecc unbuffered 3.3v ? Maximum memory per slot being 256mb ? Is my...


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.

Generally an indication that the Hard Drive isn't detected
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)
If the HDD doesn't detect after resetting the BIOS, then most likely a Hard Drive failure

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 freezing


Check the settings of the internal setups. This is using the BIOS itself and hitting a particular key before anything happens. On some machines it is F1 or the DEL key. In the basic setup there are settings for the boot order and floppy drives and HD type. Make sure these are set correctely.

ALSO on one of mine I have to use a formatting/partitioning program supplied by the HD manufacturer (in this case Maxtor) to pre-prepare the drive beofre trying to install WIndows.

My dell optiplex GX110 motherboard problem


I would suggest defaulting the bios, either by way of the cmos jumper, or by entering the bios at boot, selecting "load defaults" from the menu at the bottom of the screen, save and exit. If setting the defaults does not fix the onboard IDE then you have a hardware failure. They make IDE adaptors that plug into a PCI slot, that could get you back into operation, but I'm afraid if the IDE has gone on the mobo, what's next? I would be afraid something else will fail.
Maybe you'll get lucky with the defaults.

CPU upgrade optiplex gx110 motherboard


The 1.4 GHz chips are Tualatin cores- they use a different voltage than your previous chips and as such you would need an adapter that fits between your socket and that CPU... It is very bad for that chip and your motherboard to continue trying to run is as-is so I would stop powering it up with it in there immediately if you already haven't done so. I'm in the same boat as you with an Optiplex gx110 that I really love, but I'm stuck with my 933 [Which by the way you COULD run up to a 1 GHz PIII Coppermine in that thing] and my 1.4 sitting on the desk until I find a suitable adapter on eBay or something.... Once I have the adapter, I still don't know if the bios will play nice.

Hope this helps at least a little!

There is a full step-by-step guide to diagnosing this problem on the dell website (actually very helpful). You can find it here (titled Dell? OptiPlex?
