Check the settings of the internal setups. This is using the BIOS itself and hitting a particular key before anything happens. On some machines it is F1 or the DEL key. In the basic setup there are settings for the boot order and floppy drives and HD type. Make sure these are set correctely.

ALSO on one of mine I have to use a formatting/partitioning program supplied by the HD manufacturer (in this case Maxtor) to pre-prepare the drive beofre trying to install WIndows.

Can I install windows on my dell optiplex gx110 using flash drive(USB)?


I would say yes, as long as you can get it boot from the USB. Check BIOS. Are installing you Win 95, 98, or XP? I ask because the manual has reference to Y2K.

You just want to keep it as a Linux box. Have Fun!

Hope you can read this. if not, GOOGLE...TRANSLATE.

Removing the PSWD jumper is the correct method of clearing the BIOS password. Removing the battery resets the CMOS.

Remove the power from your computer. Remove the battery. Remove the PSWD jumper. Wait!!!!

Keep power off the computer for at least 30 minutes, overnight is better.

Replace the battery. Plug the computer in. Do Not Reconnect the PSWD jumper.

Now reinstall your operating system and drivers. When finished, restart your system. If everything works and you want to redo the BIOS password, shut the computer down. Unplug the power. Remove the battery. WAIT.

Replace the PSWD jumper. Replace the battery. Plug in the power. Restart the computer, hitting "F2" as it starts....to open the BIOS setup page. Reset your password here. Esc to continue, Yes to save.

Good luck

That happened to my Laptop as well and all I did is reinstalled the audio driver that is included in the package and it actually worked with no problem. If in that case is still happening, try to update the driver after reinstalling it.

Don't detect usb, malfunctioned, don't recognised


Did you reinstall from the Dell "System Restore" CDs that came with your computer, or from some "generic" XP CD-ROM?

Access http://support.dell.com
Allow the web-page to "detect" your Dell "asset-key".
You'll be directed to a web-page containing downloadable "drivers" for your computer's USB-ports. Select, download, and Install those drivers.

Try opening the PC and removing the CMOS battery for 30 minutes. This should reset everything and enable you to install XP without needing a password.

Cant get my sound to work


If you go to the Dell WEB site and then to the support and download page you can get the audio driver for your model computer. To get the correct drivers for you computer you can type in the Service Tag number and this will then list the drivers for all the hardware components for your model computer.
Note: Not all drivers are applicable to your computer, it depends upon the hardware configuration/options that you selected at the time of purchase.

The Service Tag number is on a label on the back of your computer, if it is missing you can also locate this number from the BIOS setup.

Optiplex Gx110 Freezing on Bios Post


The only thing I can think of is there should be a jumper pin that on the mother board that resets the cmos. Unplugging the battery does not clear the cmos rom. My guess would be the cmos rom is currupted and unfortunatly you need the rom loaded before you can flash and replace it. My advice is ditch it.
