Old Dell Optiplex GX100, hard drive trouble.

Old Dell Optiplex GX100, sometimes when I start it up it would not come on it says the hard drive is missing and or cover was recently removed. But i noticed when i turn the computer a certain way or lay it on a certain side it comes on. It's been working for a while now but the problem came back. When i do get it to work it works for like 5 minutes and a blue screen comes on saying something about dump. I took out the sound card and the computer works just fine. what is it

RAM could be bad, generally when its doing a dump, ram is bad. Although it could actually be the hard drive itself. Give both a test

Where do I connect speaker to GX100?


Look at the "back" of the computer-casing.

Look for 3 similar holes (green, blue, and pink).

Insert your microphone into the PINK hole.

Insert your speaker-connector into the GREEN hole.

If you have a cassette-deck with "line-out" connectors,
connect it via the BLUE hole.

My Dell Optiplex 745 "No Boot Device Available"


No boot device means that the computer cannot find a drive that has a operating system files and therefore cannot boot up.
This usually means that the hard drive in the computer is faulty.
You need to get a new hard drive and install Windows on the hard drive, together with the drivers for the computer's installed devices and programs to get a working computer.

No os dell optiplex gx100


Microsoft sells operating systems all day long. But, I assume you mean "operating system not found" that could mean that you have a corrupted boot sector, or that your BIOS settings are not set to boot the hard drive, OR that your hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS. First, I would test the hard drive, and next, I would try reinstalling the OS.

I want upgrade


hello, i would install the cpu you wish to use, then see how it runs. and then do a bios update. this may work,if not the motherboard may not be compatible with the cpu upgrade, (propriatory equipment sometimes does not allow such upgrades) like hit or miss! i hope this info helps,and you get the dell to accept the faster cpu. good luck! glen
