When computers sit for long periods oif time, the hard drive can lose information. you prolly need to reinstall windows.

I have a dell optiplex gx 270 when i start it say no boot device available press F1 to retry and F2 for setup in setup i am not able to locate where to check weather it is picking HD and CD...


one step you can check boot device menu by clicking f2
first boot device should be HDD hard drive
if it is also correct then surely the hard drive is faulty and you need to contact dell at 1-800-624-9896

Hi I have got a dell optiplex gx270 with the licence of win xp pro, I am trying to restore the system with ctrl F11 but nothing work, when I select boot from cd the system lunch win xp pro with login and...


if you want to restore the computer to the factory settings.
restart the comptuer. immediately hold down the CONTROL key and start tapping F11 key.
Note : all of the data and software would be lost. Your computer will be restored to factory settings like a newly brought system.
IF this does work then go to bios, and make cd rom as the first boot devices, hit f10. now, hit "escape" once and select, "save" and hit enter.
Now, comptuer will be restarted.Now,start tapping space bar, It will boot from the disk.
else restart the computer and again start tapping spacebar at the startup.

Hey, My Dell Optiplex GX270 will run for a quick second, beep, and then a light with a barrel looking icon lights for a second too. How do I fix this? Thanks so much!


I would run diagnostics. Here's how you do it if the utility partition exists on your hard drive:

Starting the Dell Diagnostics From Your Hard Drive
  1. Shut down and restart the computer.

  2. When the DELL™ logo appears, press <F12> immediately.

NOTE: If you see a message stating that no diagnostics utility partition has been found, run the Dell Diagnostics from your Drivers and Utilities CD.
If you wait too long and the Microsoft® Windows® logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer through the Start menu and try again.
  1. When the boot device list appears, highlight Boot to Utility Partition and press <Enter>.

  2. When the Dell Diagnostics Main Menu appears, select the test you want to run.
