My Dell Optiplex GX 110 does not boot. It says the Case or Cover was opened previously. And it shows that I do not have a Hard Drive installed even though I have. How do I solve this problem?

Please start by opening the case and making sure that there is a harddrive in there.

Ones you have confirmed that you indeed have a hard drive in the computer and it has not been removed and it is properly connected with cables. (two cables in any hard drive, do not connect 3 cables into the same hard drive)

After that you can close the case, you will need to enter the setup / bios or cmos on your computer start up, look for case intrusion option, turn it off or disbabled or reset.

That will get rid of the case error.

Ones the hard drive is detected, or if its not detected look in the same place where you where previously, check if you can see the hard drive in the bios. If you can see the drive in the bios then the boot order is possibly wrong. On this page you can see and read about how to set the boot order : (http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php)

Let me know how it goes and if you have any questions.
Thanks,
Ekse

ps. please don't rate the solution negatively untill we have solved the problem.

Boot problem with Dell Optiplex GX150


To reinstall Xp from the CD you need to press F2 and go into the BIOS then select the boot order configuration and make the CD the first boot device and the hard disk the second boot device.
After installing XP, if you wish you can go back into the BIOS and change the boot order to boot from the hard disk first.
