Hello!

Here are other possible reasons why computer restart

-- Sometimes this can be caused by an overheating situation wherein some programs require a lot of processing power which can cause the processor or hard drive to get hot

--If you determine that overheating is not the problem, the most likely suspect is bad memory. Trying to access a bad spot in your system memory (RAM) can cause the computer to freak out and restart.

-- Make sure that the Automatically Restart in the System failure section is uncheck

--This can also be a virus or spyware problem. go through your Control Panel / Add or Remove Programs list and remove any programs you don't need, then run thorough anti-virus and anti-spyware scans.

-- Failing or under-rated power supplies can also cause your computer to restart at seemingly random intervals.

Hello.

Memory is not interchangeable. Depends on your system, as to what memory to use. An error is telling you the memory is not correct for that PC.

Your Dell Optiplex sx 270 uses DDR PC2700 and DDR PC3200 memory.

Hope this helps.

You are limited in the choices for video card The Optiplex GX270 only has a 160W power supply Not only that but because of the slim case, you're most likely limited to low profile video cards. That means the choices will be extremely limited & not very good. Even after the upgrade, you'll most likely have to stick with older games. follow this link to buy low profile video cards http://www.directron.com/lowprofile.html

Power switch dell optiplex sx 270


You problem is most likely caused by faulty capacitors on the motherboard. Most PCs of your age suffered from this. It was a manufacturing defect. Call Dell to see if they will replace it for free. This is a picture of two blown caps so you can id them on your MBmoz-screenshot.png

Problems with dell optiplex sx 270 shutting down


Heat sink sounds like a very good next step. I would thoroughly dust out the machine with canned or compressed air ( if you used a vaccuum already it may have cooked something with static discharge). After that you can order some thermal paste from Tigerdirect.com or pick some up at your local computer store (dont cheap out on it $5-$10 will get you 1-2 tubes of reasonable quality, and it does not go bad).

Remove the heat sink carefully, remove the chip from the cradle and inspect it to be sure it is not burnt or damaged. Clean the chip and the heat sink of all residue of the former thermal compound. Reinstall the chip. Then apply a spot of thermal paste/compound about half the size of a dime in the center of the chip. Reapply the heatsink, make sure everything is snug tight and secure and give it a try.

If it still dosent work there is more I can do to help. I am A+ cert and have passed all Dell factory tests, as well as working on many of these machines in a corporate environment.

If you require further assistance please let me know, I CAN solve this problem.

  2. Press 'ALT' and 'F' at the same time
  3. Turn 'NUM LOCK', 'SCROLL LOCK' and 'CAPS LOCK' on. (Make sure the lights on the keyboard are on.)
  4. Press 'ALT' and 'P' at the same time. The bios should now be reset to the factory settings.
