    i tried to install more memory. computer would not boot up. I have removed the new memory and only have the original in now, but it still will not boot up, but now it beeps. The monitor is not getting a signal. I made sure that the memory was tight. I can't figure out who to do now.

    go to

    enter the service tag from your computer and run a diagnostics on this system.
    does the system still boot ? If not you will need to d/l the diagnostics and run it from a cd.

    first things first ... remove the memory that was added and leave only the original 256 MB that came with the system. Will it boot?
    What is your service tag # ? Is this windows xp ? How long ago was the memory added? Has any other hardware been changed or added ? Will the system boot in safe mode ? (Hit the F8 key on start up and choose safe mode). If you are determined to do this yourself ... we may have to do a chat.

I have a Dell Optiplex GX 280. When I turn on my computer a black screen appears. What can I do?

check the hard disk to be powered and the plugs to be on ...and try again ...Go to bios settings by pressing del on start ..or the F key suggested on the screen on boot..In here locate the optimal factory defaults and engage them ..confirm and after that save the settings by pressing the F10 key and confim
This will make all devices to be set to the factory defaults..After that if it still does the same it means the windows installed on it corrupted..or the hdd with the operation system is corrupted and the windows files can not be read so the boot can not continue...First try to insert a boot-able cd ..with the operation system on it ..and try to reinstall it ..Format drive C during the installation in ntfs quick mode..This will eliminate all bugs and strange things ..If the installation goes well means the hdd is ok ..and will work ,, remember you will need all drivers for it and need to install them in order to function , the thing to be done is to get to the manufacturer support site and download them by model and operation system before beginning the operation ..cause once the installing being done can not connect to the net without the LAN driver....
If the installing can not be done ..and during installation you are informed that the hdd is inexistent or ..corrupted...than you will have to change it ..
Cause it seam to stop the boot on the video card information it will be a good start to check the video card too ..specially if it isnt an on board one ..but a pci ..It may be damaged and this to be the reason for not booting right ..

Cant do anything my computer wont go to the os

What you need to do my friend is remove the CMOS battery, then remove the power cord from the computer. Press the power button on the front of the pc, you might at this point see a temporary flash of the power LED (at this point the cmos /bios is now cleared and reloaded with the defaults.
Next, put the battery back in and then the power and boot to the bios. Just reload all settings as needed and you should be back in business!!!

You can solve this by going into the bios setup & changing the boot order. Make the dvd/cd drive 1st in boot line then hdd. This should allow you to boot up from the windows xp disc. Hope this helps & please rate this solution fixya. Thanks.

If your target PC for installation cannot network boot On any machine: * Build an Etherboot boot floppy. kanga (the installation target) has an 3Com 3c905 NIC * Download and unpack Etherboot (etherboot-5.3.9.tar.bz2 from [WWW] SourceForge in my case). * Documentation from the [WWW] Etherboot documentation page. * Make the boot floppy (insert disk into drive :).
