Question about Dell OptiPlex GX110 PC Desktop
Hi, I just got an older computer from work. Upon trying to boot it up, after the inital Dell load screen I am met with a note that says, "Memory address line failure at 0B0719F8, read 78787078, expecting 78787878. Decreasing available memory". I'm then left with the F1 to retry boot (which does nothing) or F2 for setup utility. I tried playing around in the setup util. but nothing seems to help. Can anybody help me?
Change your system memory card: below is the system memory for the Optiplex GX110: I took this from the manual. I assume you do not have one... let me know if you want them I can send it to you You can increase system memory up to 512 megabytes (MB) by using synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM) dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs). Figure 9 in "Inside Your Computer" shows the location of the DIMM sockets on the system board (DIMMs must be non-error checking and correction [ECC]). When you add system memory, you may install DIMMs in either socket. For optimum operation, Dell recommends that you install a DIMM in socket A first (closest to the processor) before installing a DIMM in socket B. NOTICE: Before you install new memory modules, download the most recent BIOS for your computer from the Dell Support website

From the failures its probably a RAM memory problem , which means that you should try a different ram module that is working , or if possible try the ram module of this pc in another one thats working.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.
Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the
memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer.
If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on
it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next
memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it
aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it
boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put
it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.
Diagnostic Lights CAUTION: Before you begin any of the procedures in this section, follow the safety instructions located in the Product Information Guide. To help you troubleshoot a problem, your computer has four lights labeled "1," "2," "3," and "4"on the front or back panel. The lights can be off or green. When the computer starts normally, the patterns or codes on the lights change as the boot process completes. When the computer starts normally, the patterns or codes on the lights change as the boot process completes. If the POST portion of system boot completes successfully, all four lights display solid green. If the computer malfunctions during the POST process, the pattern displayed on the LEDs may help identify where in the process the computer halted.
NOTE: The orientation of the diagnostic lights may vary depending on the system type. The diagnostic lights can appear either vertical or horizontal.
The computer is in a normal "off" condition, or a possible pre-BIOS failure has occurred.
The diagnostic lights are not lit after the computer successfully boots to the operating system.
Plug the computer into a working electrical outlet and press the power button.
A possible BIOS failure has occurred; the computer is in the recovery mode.
Run the BIOS Recovery utility, wait for recovery completion, and then restart the computer.
A possible processor failure has occurred.
Reinstall the processor and restart the computer.
Memory modules are detected, but a memory failure has occurred.
