Question about Dell Optiplex GX60 PC Desktop
Hi Rose, I'm Fred, and I am a Dell tech. :).
External drives are tricky because the computer may not be able to access them to boot from. Your best option is search for a replacement to the optical (cdrom) drive. Since you are buying one, try to get a dvd burner or dvd reader or cdrom burner. They are usually only a few dollars more, and come in handy down the road. Now, if you cannot get this computer repaired for less than 70 bucks, scrap it. the gx60 is a high-end pentium 3, and not worth much additional money. You can purchase a perfectly good used dell pentium 4 from gearxs for about 80 bucks, with windows XP, and all the basics installed, shipped to your house. the gx60 is not worth a heavy investment, unless you just happen to have the parts and the time.
