F1 POST Message in Dell Optiplex 330


Sounds like an incorrect setting in Bios I am not very familiar with this model but that is what happens when my Dell Optiplex GX270 does it.
Please check that all settings are correct and that you have not accidentally set it to require this action prior to boot up.

Hope this helps

I have a dell optiplex gx270 with an internal LG GH22LP20 super multi dvd writer installed. The system does not recognize the device at all. Can you help?


Make sure the drive is jumpered to cable select (CS) and using the original Dell Data cable. Re-seat both power and data cable connections.
boot to the BIOS (F2 at boot)
turn on caps lock, scroll lock and numlock on the keyboard
Press ALT + E (should beep once) Press ALT + F (should Beep Once) Press ALT + B system will reboot and re-detect IDE drives

My dell optiplex gx270 will not boot up it is saying the sata primary drive is not found. your assistance would be appreciated. thanks!


Is your PC running well before? If yes, check the Harddisk (HD) on the BIOS mode. Is it detected? check your data cable & power cable to HD. If you try to add other HD (secondary) check the jumper of your HD. Usualy 'slave' for second HD.

Hey, My Dell Optiplex GX270 will run for a quick second, beep, and then a light with a barrel looking icon lights for a second too. How do I fix this? Thanks so much!


I would run diagnostics. Here's how you do it if the utility partition exists on your hard drive:

Starting the Dell Diagnostics From Your Hard Drive
  1. Shut down and restart the computer.

  2. When the DELL™ logo appears, press <F12> immediately.

NOTE: If you see a message stating that no diagnostics utility partition has been found, run the Dell Diagnostics from your Drivers and Utilities CD.
If you wait too long and the Microsoft® Windows® logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer through the Start menu and try again.
  1. When the boot device list appears, highlight Boot to Utility Partition and press <Enter>.

  2. When the Dell Diagnostics Main Menu appears, select the test you want to run.
