Dell optiplex gx-260 slow performace

We move our file server from Novell to Windows 2003 server R2.  Dell Optiplex gx-260 runing Windows 2000 professional showed inmediate performance problems.  Something in the new environment seems not fit. Any ideas where to look? drivers?.  Workstations has W2000 pro Sp4 with all patches applied.

    Hi LRL Computer,



    Thanks for the comments.  Problem shows only on optiplex Gx-260 running W2000 pro SP4.  DNS settings are correct an server doesn't show relenvant information regarding this. The workstations get frozen.  Another weird thing is that problems is arinsing gradually, that is to say there are some Gx-260's working and some not working but haven't been able to find a pattern to tackle the problem on the bad ones.



     



    Thanks, Sebastian

    Hi,



    Thanks again for your email.  It is not a dumb question at all but yes we did remove Novell Client.  The safe mode suggestion is good but unfortunately we can't try running application this way because it needs a lot of stuff not available in safe  mode.



     



    Ours is a Domain Server.



     



    KR,



    Sebastian

If this is happening on all workstations you should look at your network settings and verify that your DNS settings are correct.  Also look in the error logs on the server to see if it is fillingup with system or application errors.

    I know this is a dumb question but did you remove the novell client from the workstations?  Also, did you try running one bad workstation in safe mode with networking to see if a running program is creating an issue?

My dell optiplex gx 260 has a blank screen when I turn it on. The windows xp professional screen comes up then when it goes to where the desktop should show up all I get is a gray screen


1. From reading your issue it seems the video card is defective.
2. If you have received the Windows XP splash screen and then the monitor displays a gray screen then only two things have happened here your drivers are corrupt for the video card or the video card itself has failed.
3. Suggestion: install a new video card compatible with Windows XP.
4. Most Dell Optiplex desktops have the video graphics card integrated to the the mother board.

I have an Ml 110 G5 Server, But i could not find the VGA driver for the Win Xp , kindly assist thanks Justin


Hi, I m really sorry to say that but you have a Server Product and its built to run Windows Server Series on it (or Linux / Novell Netware).
This is the list of compatible Server list
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for 64-bit Extended Systems Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Essential Business Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Foundation Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Small Business Microsoft Windows Server 2008 W32 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 x64 Novell NetWare 6.5 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (AMD64/EM64T) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (x86) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server (x86) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server (x86-64) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (AMD64/EM64T) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 (AMD64/EM64T) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 (x86)
Here is the link for Drivers
Try to use the Driver for Windows 2003.
It has a Matrox VGA as I know. If you know which Matrox series you have, then Browse here for the Drives: Matrox Graphics Support. Make sure that you choose the Exact Driver software which suites the System.
Note: Not every product has the Driver Software for Windows XP.
Please rate the answer! Thanks for contacting Fixya!
