Question about Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop
Ultra ata 100.. ide cable .. may be bad.. or the controller on the motherboard is causing the issue
try to pull the ide cable off the board.. do ya see the bios then???
if so first replace with a different 80pin ide cable.. or buy a new one..
test the drives attached to the ide ribbon gray cable in another chassis... if the all is good.. and you still can not reach the bios..
use the clear cmos or bios directions on the gx280 manual online at dell
else the motheboard has gone bad
