Re: no power to dell opiplex gx1

Try to get to the jumper next to the cmos battery in the mainboard. by changing its position for some seconds while power is off and putting it back , cmos is cleard. start the board hit delete to enter setup and exit saving chages.
ps: if the mainboard bottom was in touch with anything metal from the case otherwise it will get damaged.

My computer wont turn on

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly

motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

hope it helps

My dell optiplex gx1 cant read both hdd and cd rom pleas help me

Go on your desktop and right-click on the "My computer" icon and go to its properties
Then go to "Hardware" Tab and then go to "Device Manager"
In the Device manager, notice any yellow question mark or exclamation mark especially on the CD Drive. Right-click on it and choose update driver. The the driver installation wizard will take you through the process. When complete, restart the computer and try if its working. Do the same on the USB component in the device manager. This should solve you out of that, It means the CD Rom drivers as well as the USB are corrupt or missing...

If this does not work then consider using any software that scans your computer and reveals to you the drivers missing on it.

If this does not work, i think you just have to re-install your Operating system

Dell Optiplex GX1 not recognizing all hard drives.

If you connect the drives using one single ribbon cable with two connectors on it then you need to set the drives to Master/Slave using the jumpers on the drives. Master being your OS drive.
If you are running a very old Operating System, make sure it can support a 20GB drive.

Motherboard having a system password , idonot know what is its pa

Open the case and look for a jumper switch (usually blue or black color) labeled CLRTC or CRL. A jumper switch is a small connector connecting two pins on the motherboard. Same like the one in CD ROM drive or hard drive for selecting master or slave.
If you find it, unplug the power cable, remove the jumper. Wait 10 - 15 seconds, then put it back. Plug the power cable and try power up your computer.
