    I would like to assist you in resolving your problem as soon as possible, but I need to know what operating system you use and if you have the original CD of your operating system.

    Ok, I understand it won't boot into safe mode graphical but can you get it to do safe mode command prompt only? If so there is a powerful command you can type at the prompt that might fix it. Let me know.

If the power LED is flashing amber, there may be an issue with the power supply, if it is solid amber then the motherboard itself (or if it has an expansion card in a slot, maybe the card)

Optiplex gx820 can i connect 300 watt power supply


You listed GX820 and GX260.

I am assuming you meant the GX260.

There are three varieties of the Gx260.

1) The SFF (Small Form Factor) power supplies can be replaced, but I know of no upgrades for these.

2) For the SDT (Small Desk Top), you can get up to a 270 (best I have seen).

Example of where to get one.

For the Mini Tower, here is an example of a 400W replacement. There may be others for this model.

I have a GX280 Mini Tower and recently upgraded my PSU to one very similar to the one above.

Will a dell gx280 motherboard fit into a gx260 (dell) case?


If it is a slim gx260 case, it might not. If it is the wide case, it will, but the two motherboards have different power supplies. You will need to use a gx280 power supply to power it on. However, you can use a gx270 motherboard in a gx260 case without changing the power supply.


Hope this helps!

Optiplex GX260 won't boot


I had the same issue and accidentally discovered a temporary solution. Unplug the power from the back of the machine, open the case and unplug the ATX power connection from the motherboard. With the ATX cable unplugged, plug the power cord back in. When you try to turn the computer back on the power light should turn orange and fans should be spinning, with it powered on plug the ATX connector back in. That should turn the computer off. Turn it back on and it should boot fine. You can even shutdown and restart, but when the power is unplugged you will have to go thru the same process to get it back up. This sounds crazy but it worked on mine. Good Luck!

Dell GX260


can you be more specific when describing the computer 'struggling to restart'? Does it beep? Does it take several attempts to restart?
