Make sure you hooked it to the same ribbon cable it was b4 you unhooked, check to make sure the power and ribbon cables are pushed in all the way on the hard drive and cd/dvd rom's, Check to see if the ribbon cable got pulled out from the main board side, Also try a different power cable there should one or two that are not being used with black caps on then.

Will the hard-drive from PACKARD-BELL IMEDIA X2414 go into DELL GX150LINUX


Yes if the data connections are compatible. SATA data interface and SATA power connector, it's a thin black connector.

It is not reccommend to switch drives across operating systems unless you are abolutely sure that you know how to access the drive without damaging/erasing the information that is currently on the drive.

The current Windows hard drive will not boot in a different pc system.

I would suggest getting the orginal pc working again, it may be a simple case of loose connection/contacts. Unless you had a friend that would be willing to help, by attaching your hard drive to his pc as a slave and then copying your data to DVD's.

See my published guide entitled: My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Take care!

SATA Hard Drive Type The Dell Optiplex GX280 Takes?


Hi,

It makes no difference providing the computer motherboards support SATA interface.

SATA 1 and 2 drivers are in the BIOS. If all the computers have SATA 1 you can upgrade the BIOS to latest version via Dell's support website.





Regards.

Cables to hookup to tv


Does your TV have a VGA input? Does your Video card have RCA output?

If one or the other is true ... you can probably do whata you want.

Starting it up with a new hard drive


In all reality this will probably NOT work, as is even if you do repair this install, the old hardware will be different as the hardware on this MotherBoard will undoubtedly be different than the one it came from... You will have to get an install disk and reinstall a NEW operating system all together.

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.

Old Dell Optiplex GX100, hard drive trouble.

Dell Optiplex GX270 - Freezes up!


You may have either a memory chip gone bad or the CPU overheating. Withot seeing it and testing it's hard to tell you which. But one thing you can try is if you have 2 RAM installed, try to remove 1 and see if the problem continues. If so, change them and put the one you removed back and remove the other. if it continues then you may have an overheating problem.

Otherwise, you can try a SCANDISK and DEFRAG to clean up the hard drive and data.

Dell optiplex gx150 cd drive won't boot


Hmmm--when you went into the BIOS setup, your first boot device should be CD. The next your hard drive. The other boot devices should be set to disabled. Now if you have a third boot device as a network device, then your computer is not seeing the CD or the Hard drive--you have a problem. If all the drives are hooked up properly (sounds like you have that covered) then your motherboard is probably the problem.
I would try to disconnect all your stuff except the CD. Try it on the first IDE channel (set it either as cable select or master). If that fails, try it on the other channel. Do you have a second CD to swap out?
Still no boot? Bad motherboard.
