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.

SOURCE: Dell Optiplex Gx280 - cant detect two IDE hard drives

Hi,

You should attach two hard drives on primary ide. Set both jumpers to cable select ( or one on end is master, middle one is slave). The one at the end of the cable is where your o/s should be. You could try putting the third on seconday, along with your dvd rom.

SOURCE: over heating

Overclocked check:
Right-click [My Computer]
Select "Properties"
The [General] tab has the PC specs at the bottom.
Note the CPU model identifier (example: Intel 2 6400 @ 2.13GHz)
Now find the correct specs for that CPU (through Google?)
If the eral] tab shows a higher CPU clock speed, the CPU is overclocked.
You can change the clock speed in the BIOS setup.
I hope this answers your question.

Dose not boost and fan is high speed


The Thermal Paste in-between the Processor, and finned Heatsink that sits on it; has dried up.

THOROUGHLY clean top of Processor, and bottom of Heatsink.
PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

FOLLOW Anti-Static Procedures.

Im wondering if I can put th processor from my 518 in my GX280


With the flood of information you posted I can barely sift through it

Do I assume you are referring to a Dell Inspiron 518 desktop computer's, processor; to go into a Dell Optiplex GX280 desktop computer?

You know Dell is a computer company that was founded on the principle, to give the customer what they wanted; and to be able to choose from several options.

That being stated, in reality I have no idea of what Processor is in YOUR Dell Inspiron 518, or Optiplex GX280.

However, if I am to assume the specs (Specifications), shown in the following link to be true; for Your computer, then the answer is NO,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-inspiron-518/4505-3118_7-33186145.html

States an Intel Quad Core Q6600 processor.
(Operates at a maximum frequency rate {'Speed'} of 2.4GigaHertz.
2.4GHz )

Now let's look at the Dell Optiplex GX280 specifications,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-optiplex-gx280/4507-3118_7-30998912.html

Both the Inspiron 518, and the Optiplex GX280 use an LGA 775 processor socket, on the motherboard.

This is good because both the Intel Quad Core Q6600, and the Intel Pentium 4, model 540; use the LGA 775 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_T

What is Not good, is the motherboard chipset used on the Optiplex GX280, will Not support a dual core processor; much less a quad core processor.

The motherboard chipset for the Optiplex GX280 is an Intel 915G,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

The Intel 915G chipset supports Single Core processors -> ONLY.
Intel Pentium 4, or Intel Celeron D.

Front Side Bus (FSB) support is either 533MegaHertz, or 800MHz.

The Intel Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Celeron#Prescott-256

"The Intel Celeron D processor works with the Intel 845 and 865 chipset families.

The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core.

It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M (which also uses 3xx model numbers).
Unlike the Pentium D the Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor."

The Inspiron 518 has an Intel G33 motherboard chipset,

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/dell-inspiron-518/4507-3118_7-33186145.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Scroll down to G33 in the left column.
Read across, and look at the headings above.

Here we see the Intel G33 motherboard chipset, supports dual core, and quad core processors.
Intel Pentium Dual Core, Intel Core 2 Duo, and Intel Core 2 Quad.

Front Side Bus (FSB) support is for processors, that have either an 800MegaHertz FSB, or 1066MHz FSB, or 1333MHz FSB.

Short answer?

If it is a dual core, or quad core Intel processor, the answer is NO.

Do you know how to find out what processor is in the Inspiron 518, and the Optiplex GX280?

1) Are the computers working, and internet ready?

No?

2) Do you know about Anti-Static Procedures, and how to read the sSpec number on the processor?

Hd keeps rebooting. I swapped drives, battery, memory and still the same so it must be something with the motherboard. Any suggestion. It's a Dell Optiplex GX280 desktop


It could also be the processor, either its overheating or it has simply packed up first check that the heatsink above it has been correctly installed and is resting directly on top of the processor and that the fan on the heatsink is functioning. If that doesnt work then replace the processor completely.

Computer keeps restarting


im assuming your computer running windows, does it go inside windows b4 it will restart? common causes regarding this problem are corrupted operating system or over heat on your processor and incompatble softwares such as firewalls and antivirus.

Dell Optiplex GX280 won't start. Fan sounds like a Boeing 757


If the processor is ok, you can just change the motherboard. Then look for a compatible motherboard that can accept your processor.
