Question about Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop
Apply pressure on the heat sink fan right before you press the power button and continue applying pressure. Watch your screen if you see it boot this means its a problem with your processor clamp that applies pressure to the processor. Try to remove the top part of the clamp. Shouldn't be too hard with some needle nose pliers. Then just replace the heat sink and fan with out that clamp.
