HDD Upgrade


That model has standard IDE interface for hard drive. Don't think 500 GB or higher comes with that interface. The standard now is SATA interface for hard drives. Here is a lnk to the owner's manual for you model:
ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_optiplex_desktop/optiplex-gx60_user%27s%20guide_en-us.pdf
You tell the difference between standard IDE and SATA in that the standard IDE interface uses a wide flat ribbon cable to connect to the drive. SATA uses a small thin cable as shon in the following link:

I tried turning my GX60 into a dual-boot and didn't do the partitions right. Sort of put 2 OS in one partition. Now it won't boot and it gives me readings of Drive C: can't be accessed or...


Hi,
I think that the operating has gone corrupt and needs to be reinstalled. First, make sure that your PC can read the hard disk in BIOS (at boot up, press F2 to enter BIOS and check "Drive Configuration). You should be able to find the hard drive (as well as CD/DVD ROM) here. If not check the hard disk cables etc. At boot up, you may also press F12 for Boot Menu and select the primary hard disk for booting up the PC.
Secondly, boot the PC from CD ROM, Delete the partitions and make fresh partitions for installation of the operating system. You may also add the hard disk of your PC to another PC (as slave) and delete all the partitions from the operating system and make fresh partitions. Place the hard back into your PC and proceed with installation.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I can't change my screen resolution, or change to 32bit colour since i installed Vista onto my dell optiplex gx60


This is because  you haven't installed the drivers. Unfortunately for you your chipset is an antiquity that wasn't supported even on Vista. Your only hope is to install its XP drivers, they will give you basic functionality and nothing more.

Dell optiplex will not recognize hard drive


Is it SATA or IDE? Have you tried another cable? If it's IDE, have you checked the jumper settings (usually Cable Select is easiest)?

My OptiPlex GX60 is not recognizing its hard drive? Several weeks ago had to restore with install CD. On a restart, wouldn't load, report said no hard drive.


Most likely it is a Hard disk drive failure

Reseat the cable connections, see if the drive is detected, if not, replace the drive

I think that you have to reinstall the XP os on the hard drive again.

My Dell Optiplex GX60 will not recognize the Hard drive I have just installed


Search the net for the answer. Dell have a irritating need to used a winchester drive utility to setup new drives. This is downloaded and installed onto a 3 1/2 inch floppy or if your lucky a cd.

No LAN signal on my Optiplex GX60


Just a quick thought: Make sure you are not connected to the uplink port on the router, and make sure you are using a straight-thru cable not a cross over and your card is enabled on your computer.
