Can not find jumper switch for Dell GX280 to remove password.Where do I find it or is there another way?


Hi there, For the GX280, you don't use a jumper to reset the BIOS password. You can reset the BIOS by pulling out the motherboard battery. The battery is on the opposite side of the external ports, and is flat and silver.
Power down and unplug the computer, then remove the battery for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in, then power up the computer. There should no longer be a password. If it is a Windows password you are talking about, you will need to reinstall Windows. Please let me know if that is the case. Alex

I need to enable AHCI to my dell optiplex GX280 with the BIOS version A08


Hi Jordan,
You should be able to access your BIOS setting when you first turn on the pc. The first screen you see will tell you (briefly) to push either the Esc button, or F8, F12 to access the BIOS setup. Once your in the BIOS you may have to hunt down the control your looking for but the options are not that many and you should be able find it within a few minutes. Word of warning, by changing settings in the BIOS, you can cause your pc to act much differently or not even boot up correctly. So if you enable the Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) and it does not act like you want it to, you can always change it back.
Hope this helps

Optiplex gx280 processor upgrade


eykraus,
I have some experience in upgrading your Dell.
If this gx280 was my computer and want to upgrade I'll only go to 3.0 but you need to upgrade you bios to support the new upgrade. You could also upgrade the memory as well. Put the power supply you have in so you can conserve.

Computer saying error loading operating system


You can configure your boot setup from your bios screen (for dell, either F11 or F12) then set up your optical drive as your 1st priority then, save settings. After that, you need to insert your windows XP cd in order for it to boot.

inform me of what happened after you have done this.
