Power up the Optiplex GX260 and check the QUAD Pack Diagnostics LEDs (located at the back). Compare the LED pattern to http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/ug/solvprob.htm#1167139 for more info.
Ideally, to troubleshoot and resolve the issues, try removing all PCI devices, disconnect all external devices/peripherals including keyboard and mouse. You may leave the Monitor connected. Power up the PC and check for successful Power On Self Test (POST). If POST completes (generally fails on "Keyboard not present"), shutdown, connect keyboard and try POST again.
If all goes well, install PCI devices one at a time and test successful POST. This will help identity a failing device.
If issue persists, after removing all devices, remove the CMOS battery for about 90 seconds and try POST again. If same, remove all DIMMs (Memory) and check for beep codes. Compare beep pattern to http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/ug/solvprob.htm#1176760.
NB: Ensure to remove power lead and press power button briefly to use up flea power before working in the system.
If the system beeps, it suggests that the CPU and systemboard are "likely" fine. Install one DIMM at a time and test successful POST. If there no beeps then the systemboard and/or CU is/are at fault.

It sounds as though your PF keys are disabled by the BIOS settings. Try this:
Upon cold start or reboot get to the BIOS setup. You may have to press F2 or delete, or whatever key the first POST messages instruct you to use. Different BIOS manufacturers use different keys, and you have to be quick to interrupt the boot process using the correct key. If you fail to determine what key it is, reboot once again, until you see/read what key does the job.
Next, once you're into the setup screens, look for a section where you can set/deny access to the F8, F9, F10 etc keys during the boot process.
Make sure you ENABLE them, following the instructions on what keys to use to set/reset these choices. Make sure you SAVE AND EXIT.
On the next reboot, upon the disappearance of all POST messages, make sure you press the F8 key repeatedly until you see your OS boot options menu, among which you'll find Safe Mode.

Try this: remove the DMOS battery and unplug the on/off switch plug. It's the one in the corner near the power supply. To be sure follow the cable from the front on/off switch board on back to this plug. Then plug the A/C cord in, if the system boots up fine, then replace the front panel power on/off swith board. Naturally you will not be able to power off the computer using the power switch (since we unplugged it), so you will have to just pull the plug. Hope this helps. Joe
