Unplug computer and then press power button for 5 seconds to drain capacitors. You'll need to remove the case screws and case to get to power supply. From the back, you'll see smaller screws near the fan output vent of the power supply. All screws are phillips #2. Dell sometimes uses special clips that you have to press or pull to release objects, but may not for power supply. You'll have to disconnect all power cables from all internal devices including hard drives, CD/DVD drives, floppy drives, motherboard and any power assisted graphics cards. There may be additional chassis screws holding power supply to chassis. If you are replacing power supply, be sure new one is of at least same wattage as the original. New supply should match the same configuration as the old one and have the same style motherboard connector. Name brands like Compaq and Dell have used supplys that are specific to their PC lines. But, you should still be able to find OEM replacements. Looking for a replacement, try www.pricewatch.com.

Optiplex gx820 can i connect 300 watt power supply


You listed GX820 and GX260.

I am assuming you meant the GX260.

There are three varieties of the Gx260.

1) The SFF (Small Form Factor) power supplies can be replaced, but I know of no upgrades for these.

2) For the SDT (Small Desk Top), you can get up to a 270 (best I have seen).

Example of where to get one.

For the Mini Tower, here is an example of a 400W replacement. There may be others for this model.

I have a GX280 Mini Tower and recently upgraded my PSU to one very similar to the one above.

Will a dell gx280 motherboard fit into a gx260 (dell) case?


If it is a slim gx260 case, it might not. If it is the wide case, it will, but the two motherboards have different power supplies. You will need to use a gx280 power supply to power it on. However, you can use a gx270 motherboard in a gx260 case without changing the power supply.


Hope this helps!

Optiplex gx 260 steady amber light - done all things on dell website - still doesnt turn on. got a new PSU and it still has the same problem. theres a whirring sound which is the fan and the power supply...


Steady Amber Power LED generally indicative of a failed MB. Remove all Memory, Expansion Cards, peripheral items, if still same, replace the motherboard. If you get a Green LED with jusr RAM in system, then an expansion card or peripheral might be the issue. 95% sure it is mothebroard

Power light not turning green just amber.not a power flactuation problem


There are a few things you will have to do. First, remove any newly installed card in the PCI socket if any. Try to re-sit the memory chip modules, that's removing and re-installing them. If they are two, try replacing one after another. Thirdly, try another VGA card incase you using the onboard one. Finally, swap your monitor. It must work. Good luck

Dell Optiplex Power-on Problem


An Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc...
Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Orange power switch light Dell Gx260


Gx260-Gx280 have a known issue with the motherboard capaciators. Take a look at the capaciators on the motherboard and check if any look like they have bludges at the top particularly around the memory banks. If any of them look like this the motherboard most likely needs to be replaced.

Dell GX260


can you be more specific when describing the computer 'struggling to restart'? Does it beep? Does it take several attempts to restart?
