Question about Dell Optiplex GX280 (99301) Motherboard

1 Answer

I have several Optiplex gx280 systems with the following error: fails memory diags, says there is a problem with the circuitry near DIMM 3, replaced memory, problem still exists. Filled up all memory slots, ran diags, problem still exists. Could there be a problem with the bottom of the caps being bad, instead of the tops being blown off?

It's a possibility, does it happen regardless of what dimm you have the ram installed? you could just bypass that Dimm if it only fails on one.

What is 3-3-2 beep tone meaning


System doeIf there is one DIMM in the system the memory row/bank may be disabled when there is a memory failure. The system will not boot because it has no memory to use. If the DIMM is replaced with one of the exact same type and size, then the system will continue not to boot. BIOS cannot tell when a DIMM has been replaced with one of the exact type and size, therefore BIOS believes it is still the bad DIMM and will not use it.

Here are two possible workarounds:

1. After replacing the defective DIMM, continue to reboot the system until you hear the "no memory" post beep sequence (3-3-3) during POST (no video display). After three (3) incomplete boots, a "062 three consecutive boot failure. Using default CMOS configuration caches are off" error will occur. At this point BIOS will go back to the default settings and begin to use the new DIMM. However, if you have disabled the 3 boot fail count (this setting may not be available in all servers) in Setup, then BIOS will not turn the DIMM row/bank back on.
-=OR=

2. Remove the DIMM. Power on the system until the "no memory" post beep sequence (3-3-3) is heard. The memory row/bank will now be marked as being empty. Power off the system and put a good DIMM back into the system. The memory DIMM row/bank is re-enabled and the system boots normally.

NOTE: If more than one DIMM (or more than one DIMM set) is installed in the server and one memory (or one memory set) row/bank is disabled due to a memory failure then, the user must go into setup and re-enable the row/bank after replacing the bad DIMM.

Sir i have dell GX280 system 3.0 GHz optiplex. 1gb ddr2 ram with 80gb sata hard drive. Sir, my problem is this first i brought a system it runs fine but sometimes a day it hangs up. i return this...


Plz check your memory with memtest. It can be downloaded from http://www.memtest.org/download/4.10/memtest86+-4.10.iso.zip .
Unzip the downloaded file and burn the ISO file to a CD and boot your system from the CD. It will check the memory of your system and it will indicate any error replace the memory.
Also check your memory slot is clean .. you can clean your system memory slot using a anti-static brush (you can use a tooth brush if anti-static is not available) and IPA

Dell GX150 beeps 5 times on startup.


This normally means there is a memory error. Have you recently added memory to the sytem? You can try to remove and reseat all memory modules in the system to see if that clears the problem.
