Dell opitiplex 280 is not giving display. first of all his fan speed to much high and then after 4 or 5 day its display disappeared. its just picking now power and fan also start with high noise and...


OK, I use GX280s as home servers and ran into a similar problem with one of them...

The problem may be serious and not worth fixing (motherboard).

Turn power on
Fan(s) come on full power, sounds like a jet engine, or eventually gets that loud.

See if you power light has gone amber.

You get nothing on the screen, no Dell splash screen/post, nothing.

This is what I posted a while back concerning the above. Obviously I cannot bee 100% certain as I do not have your box in front of me. This a known issue.

--------

See if the power light goes amber after power up. I had (have - still siting in my basement) one that did same. Power up, fans go full blast . Power light goes and stays amber. This is USUALLY caused by bad capacitors on the mother board. Known GX280 problem going back. If you look on the motherboard, the capacitors should have flat tops and not leaking. If the are rounded or leaking, the MB has probably gone bad. Bottom line this is usually a defective motherboard. Mine was a bad caps issue, you issue could be different, but it does sound like the motherboard.

You can google "gx280 solid amber light loud fan" and see the issues. Here is one link.

I just replaced one of my old 280s with a dual core Dell Precision 390 workstation for about $118, and that included shipping, off of ebay.

No monitor or keyboard, fan is loud, Monitor puts up th no input message but wont turn on, keyboard lights are not on either


> fan is loud

When you first turn the computer on, the full runs at 100%, until the motherboard's "POST" (Power On Self Test) procedure has checked all the hardware, and "beeped" the speaker just once.

So, no "beep" (or multiple "beeps") and the 100% speed of the fan suggest a hardware problem with your motherboard.

Take your computer to a qualified technician for professional trouble-shooting.

Computer will not boot up. Press power button to turn on, fans whirl up to full speed, no power/hd lights, no screen display.


This sounds like a motherboard issue, but first swap out the ram one at a time, next remove the hard drive, if no change remove the video graphics card, "if detachable" disconnect any hardware that may load down the motherboard including the dvd driver, if after everything still no change the motherboard will need to be replaced.

With asus m4a785-m motherboard and amd phenom x4 9600b quad core cpu why does monitor displays a cpu fan error when fan is running full speed.


Hmm, I've never seen a computer give a CPU fan error. Maybe if the fan is really dusty it's clogging it up, try getting some canned air and spraying it out.

I have a EMachine T6534 which won't start. I shut


I agree...sounds like a power supply problem. Typically a bad power supply will not damage the motherboard. It should still be functional.

I cant get the fans to turn on!!!!!!!!!!!


Call up the 'Integration Menu" - the fans can be switched between 'auto' and 'full speed'.

To do this switch the display into standby. If the standby light flashes 4 times it is indicating a fault in the Thermal Sensor Assembly which will explain why your fans aren't working. With the display in standby press the menu button and within 3 seconds press the power button. The display will turn on with the integration menu. Select the option tab and scroll down until you see 'fan control' - press 'set' to toggle between 'auto' and 'max'. When you select 'max' the fans will run at full speed within a few seconds. The fans are a bit noisey at full speed so you may want to look into replacing the sensor eventually.

Computer turns on but no display/cpu_fan slot not working.


The four-pin CPU fan connector is the same as the three-pin (red is for voltage, black is ground and yellow for the rpm reading) but also adds a blue wire used by some BIOS sets to adjust the RPM speed of the fan. The three-pin will fit into a four-pin connector without modification, using a jumper is DEFINITELY not recommended as it could short your board.

If your system has the four-pin fan, and it boots and runs without error, it may be that your CPU is running cool enough that the fan is not needed at the time. Check your BIOS for a hardware monitor to see the actual CPU temperature. Also, you may have added utilities in Windows to give the fan speed and CPU temperature in real time. You may also notice the CPU fan kicking in when doing CPU intensive operations (virus scans, etc.)

The four-pin fan would run from a three-pin connector but would always run at full speed because the RPM Adjust signal is not present.

Intermittently the power button constant orange fan full speed


Try removing the battery from the motherboard if its not soldered and leave it for an hour then out it back in, that might reset you bios and fix your problem.
