Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop
Tried to install a second hard drive and must have done something wrong because now when I turn on the computer I receive two sets of beeps 4 then 2. Anyone have an idea how to fix it so both drives work?
Please tell me the make and model# of the drive you're installing and we'll get you fixed up. Thanks.

The beeps that you are hearing are messages created by the POST (Power On Self Test) to indicate that something is wrong. If you know your motherboard type it is possible to find the documentation explaining what 3 beeps mean.
Because we don't know the motherboard type (At least for now) let's use the common sense. Did you verify that the power supply is properly connected to the drive? Can you confirm that removing the second Hard drive it boot again ok? In some type of BIOS 3 beeps means memory problem. By accident did you touch the memory? Are all the ribbon cables well plugged in?
