Question about Dell 210W Optiplex GX270 NPS-210 AB Power Supply (T0259) Power Supply
Here's the bad news.
Dell had the 270 and several previous models made for them and the manufacturer installed cheap capacitors on the motherboards to save money. If your machine is still under warranty Dell will replace the motherboard. If not, they will sell you a refurbished one if they still have any. If you are handy with a good soldering iron, look at the motherboard and find the aluminum capacitors that show bulging or leaking from the top or bottom. Replace them with caps of identical value and higher quality.
Otherwise, follow the good news.
The good news is, Dell makes many more computers for you to choose from and purchase, and the capacitor problem has been resolved.
Yeah. I know.
