My Dell Optiplex GX 260 seems to start by itself

Has this ever happened to anyone?

My dell optiplex gx 260 has a blank screen when I turn it on. The windows xp professional screen comes up then when it goes to where the desktop should show up all I get is a gray screen

1. From reading your issue it seems the video card is defective.
2. If you have received the Windows XP splash screen and then the monitor displays a gray screen then only two things have happened here your drivers are corrupt for the video card or the video card itself has failed.
3. Suggestion: install a new video card compatible with Windows XP.
4. Most Dell Optiplex desktops have the video graphics card integrated to the the mother board.

Video card onboard

Did you mean HGX 260?. Her is the download page for the GX 260. Natually you will have to turn back on the "on board" video in the BIOS . If this video driver doesn't work,all you have to do is rool back the driver nothing lost.

I've seen this happen on PCs that have had some virus\spyware issues. Provided the Cmos battery is good, run an online virus scan. The other times I've come across this issue is from software that has it's activation cracked.
