As soon as I install the lan drivers on my gx280 it goes off and the cpu fan speeds up to full speed, without these drivers it would work fine all day without internet connection of course.

Try running diagnostics on yourcomputer to see if you have a hardware problem. You should have a CD that camewith the computer that has "Diagnostics and Utilities" listed undercontents. Boot form this CD and run the extended diagnostics.
If you don't have the CD you can go to and select "Drivers and Downloads". Enterthe "service tag" (serial number) of the computer. You can then download"Diagnostics" .
To boot from a CD disk, power on your computer and tap the key to bringyou to the "One time boot menu". Insert the CD into the top CD/DVD drive andthen select "Boot from CD/DVD" and hit key. Select the "Runthe 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics.

If all tests pass then reload OS ( Operating Software ).

My cousin's Desk top DELL OPTIPLEX GX280 wont boot they install Windows XP Professional SPK3 they always say Window could not start because the following file is missing or corrupted: <Windows...

Greetings I have the same computer which makes this a little easier I hope for understanding this process even on other computers it is all the same just different messages come up for each and everyone of them. Some go smooth and some just simply get complicated.
First you have to make sure that the disk you have of Windows XP Pro is legal and working it may be a bad disk. The install disk must be working properly. Also do to prior Windows installation which brought you to this point you will have to possibly use a formating program that does a complete erase of your hard drive. I use D/Ban Hardisk Eraser. Click Here
Once downloaded insert the disc into the CD or DVD drive on your computer and do a complete format it may take a while, then go ahead once that process is complete do another install making sure that you are booting from the DVD or CD Rom as your first boot device and the hard drive as the second boot option, under boot order options at the BIOS settings. Most likely this setting is probably already set to do this. If those two things are working the good Windows disk and a clean hard drive for a clean install. You should not have a problem installing the Windows Operating System software. Just follow the on screen directions.

SATA Hard Drive Type The Dell Optiplex GX280 Takes?


It makes no difference providing the computer motherboards support SATA interface.

SATA 1 and 2 drivers are in the BIOS. If all the computers have SATA 1 you can upgrade the BIOS to latest version via Dell's support website.

Computer saying error loading operating system

You can configure your boot setup from your bios screen (for dell, either F11 or F12) then set up your optical drive as your 1st priority then, save settings. After that, you need to insert your windows XP cd in order for it to boot.

inform me of what happened after you have done this.
