Depends on the motherboard, you might have to have paired memory, which means you might have to use 1 & 2 as a matched pair. This has to do more with the make of the motherboard rather than the bios.

Need the drivers for my gx 270 for the ethernet controller


On another computer, access the manufacturer's web-site:

http://support.dell.com

Enter 'GX270' and do a search.

Select the "network" device-driver.
Download it. Copy it to a USB memory-stick.

Take the memory-stick to your Dell computer.
Install the device-driver from the files on the memory-stick.

I have dell optiplex gx 150 beeps 6 times and a and b led is amber and c and d led is green


the 6 beep codes will be in a specific timing i.e. two beeps, a space 2 more beeps, and another space and 2 more beeps.

Looks like it may be a memory problem according to the lights.

Reseat all DIMMs and restart the system to retest.

Dell optiplex gx 270 is not giving display


If you are not getting display for your Dell Optiplex GX 270, the issue may be one of three possible causes:

* The VGA cable connection between the Dell PC and the monitor, may not be seated in the VGA port correctly. To resolve this, just make sure the VGA cable is seated completely in the VGA port of the Dell computer and that also the Power cord from the monitor to the power source (i.e wall socket, power strip, surge protector, etc.) is seated securely.

* There may be an issue with the Video card in the Dell PC

* Or there may be an issue with the motherboard for this model of Dell.

To check to determine if the latter is what you are experiencing with this issue, please feel free to review this Dell Support link: Dell Optiplex GX 270 Display issue.

If you have more questions regarding this information, please feel free to reply back to this post.

I'm doing a memory upgrade. i have four memory slots, 2 blue and 2 black. i have two, 2g dimms; for dual channel operation do i use the 2 blue slots or the first blue slot and the first black...


Try them in the same-colored slots, nearest the processor. It seems ASUS (who makes your mobo) has chosen to color code their slots so those of the same color enable dual-channel. If you can't tell from the BIOS detection, try CPU-Z to verify that the memory is in the correct slots for dual-channel operation. Putting one in the wrong slot should not damage anything. It would just make it so you can't take advantage of the extra speed.

Can you mix 1gb and 2gb dimms in the same machine (for a total of 6gb)? I added two 2gb 1066 DDR2 dimms (''OCZ'') to a PC that already had two 1066 DDR2 1gb dimms (''Kingston''). I moved the 1gb dimms to...


Your MB is AM3 with 128MB DDR3-1333 built-in, four 1.8 Volt DDR2-1200+ depending on cpu. Have you enabled cpu 64 bit extensions? Tried slowing down your memory bus?
My ASUS use dual channel for dual core cpu. I have 2 yellow and 2 black dimm sockets. Both dimms in yellow is single channel, one in yellow and one in black is dual channel. Might try 2,1,2,1 rather than 2,2,1,1 order. If only your 2 1GB dimms are seen then why do you get 4 GB from 1GB+1GB? Sounds like sockets 1,2 are giving you 4GB and 3,4 don't work? Are the 1GB+1GB in 3,4 visible if the dimms in 1,2 are removed? Per Gigabyte page your AMD Phenom II 920 is AM2+ : "Note: Due to AMD AM2+ CPU limitation, memory module DDR2 1066 or above speed is only supported by 1 dimm per channel." Per AMD (which does not show your cpu, AM3 cpu fit AM3 or AM2+ socket and support ddr2 and ddr3, AM2+ cpu only work in AM2+ socket and support ddr2 only.

How do I fit memory upgrade into an Acer L100


Fit memory upgrade? If you mean what memory to buy?
Up to 2 GB of DDR2 533/667
MHz soDIMM SDRAM (dual channel support on two DIMMs)

If you mean install it? Just look at the notches on the DIMM and on your mobo...line them up and snap them in.

Dell Optiplex GX 270 pc desktop problem


I've heard that Dell will still honor the warranty if you mention the capacitors to them. They haven't recalled them, but they know it is a known problem.
