Question about Computers & Internet
Hi my optiplex 160L would restart on its own. After talking to dell and from changing power supply, hard drive, and reinstalling windows xp prof. The computer would still restart on its own. I was told that the only thing left to do is to change the motherboard. 1) How hard is it to change the optiplex 160l motherboard? 2) Do you have any other sujestions 3) Do you know where I could purchase optiplex 160L 4)What things I should look for when purchasing motherboard. Thank you for your help
Hi there is one more thing you should check before buying another mobo. Trace the wires from your on/off switch on the case, unplug it and then bridge the 2 pins out with a screw driver, this will start the computer. runit as normal, then shut down and see if you get a restart. If the computer does not restart on its own you have a faulty switch. Clean it or replace it. Regards mistyman
