My dell optiplex gx 260 has a blank screen when I turn it on. The windows xp professional screen comes up then when it goes to where the desktop should show up all I get is a gray screen

1. From reading your issue it seems the video card is defective.
2. If you have received the Windows XP splash screen and then the monitor displays a gray screen then only two things have happened here your drivers are corrupt for the video card or the video card itself has failed.
3. Suggestion: install a new video card compatible with Windows XP.
4. Most Dell Optiplex desktops have the video graphics card integrated to the the mother board.

When i turn my computer on it loads but then a erro message comes up so i want to do a pc reset and i have looked online useing my laptop and it tells me when i see a blue dell splash bar come up to press...

The procedure is actually correct. but if your computer is fast you may miss it. try this, upon turning the computer on, start pressing the CTRL+F11 immediately. if you have reformated your HDD then most likely you've lost the recovery partition for the PC Restoration.

Splash image

problem is simple to get rid of.
Enter your bios & disable the Full screen logo found in Boot settings. the 510 splash image is part of the bios.
If this is not what your talking about than give me another description of your problem.

Good Luck & have a great weekend!
