Check for bad capacitors on the motherboard. The GX270 boards seem to have issues with this. See if the caps have a bulged X on the top and are not flat on the bottom.
Check out badcaps.net for help in determining if they are bad.

Also one other thing to check. Look at the North-bridge heatsink and see if it has a Z shaped wire running across it. On some Dell machines instead of the Z shaped wire there will be two U shaped wires running across the heatsink. Whether it is one Z shaped wire or two U shaped wires the ends of the wires will be connected to "eyes" on the motherboard.

These wires are part of the temperature sensing circuit. If one of the "eyes" connected to the motherboard is broken off you will get an overheating error.thermal fault message - 43b2b03.png

If there is space in another computer you have. just take out the hard drive from the Dell and put it in the other computer. It will have a new drive letter and you'll be able to retrieve more than just pictures from it.

I have a Dell Dimension 24000 that has been in storage for a year. I recently tried to boot it up so I could find a couple of files. It starts booting up; windows logo appears and shows things are loading...


try starting in safe mode.

when you power on the PC, start tapping the F8 key on your keyboard.

this will give you the option to start in safe mode and can possibly let you find out why you cannot start up.

if it does start this way, you should at least be able to retrieve the files you were looking for.

Memory full


1. Fax Storage may be set to On. When Fax Storage is set to On, a copy of all received faxes are stored in the memory, thus using up a % of the memory available for other functions. The Fax Storage feature is utilized for Fax Forwarding, Fax Paging and Remote Retrieval. If you do not need these features, Fax Storage should be set to Off. Verify Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:

a. Press FUNCTION, 8 (Remote Fax Opt), then 2 (Fax Storage).

b. Check the setting. The display will read On or Off.

c. If the setting is On, press the left or right navigation key (arrows) until the display reads Off.

d. Press SET and then STOP/EXIT.

e. If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive a message that reads Erase all fax 1. Yes 2. No. This means you have faxes saved in the memory. If you do not want to reprint the saved faxes, press 1 (Yes) and then STOP/EXIT. After pressing 1 (Yes), all fax data is erased and Fax Storage is turned off.

Hope this helps!
