Question about Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop
My Windows XP PC froze up today with several apps running and about 12 windows open. MS Outlook 2007 was the active application at the time, and was donloading emails when the freeze happened. after trying unsuccessfully to exit Outlook and other applications, I pressed ctrl+alt+del but no Task Manager appeared. then I tried to force shutdown by pressing ctrl+alt+del twice, no luck. Eventually I forced a shutdown with the power button.
When I restarted (after waiting a couple of minutes, with the power cord unplugged, I re-plugged the power cord and hit the power button. The Dell splash screen appeared briefly, then screen went black with nothing but a flashing command prompt at the top left corner.
Dell OptiPlex GX280 Processor Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20GHz Processor Speed 3.12 GHz Memory (RAM) 2048 MB Operating System Microsoft Windows XP Professional Operating System Version 5.1.2600
All current XP Pro updates installed.
Refresh all the connection on your motherboard like ATX power supply, HDD and CD/DVD ROM cables, and specially the RAM. You may have to clean the RAM as shown in the image below.
then hopefully your computer will return to normal. Hope this helps.
