Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
We have a Dell Optiplex GX560 that is used only occasionally. This is the only Optiplex GX560 we have in house. When trying to power it up recently, it wouldn't power. We did see a yellow light lit, on the motherboard.
After trying to locate a substitute power supply (and failing to locate one), our tech tried resetting some of the cable connections between the motherboard, the power switch, and the power supply. The system powered up, then later wouldn't power up, then did.
Any recommendations on where we might find a replacement skin (power supply, case, motherboard)? I realize this is an old unit, but it's used to build images for our DR site.
Try updating the BIOS. Seems there were some advanced power management improvements.
The following changes were made to the A04 BIOS for the A06 BIOS: 1) APM issues device commands in SMM. 2) Fixed APM to issue power up/down commands to peripherals in SMM. 3) Turbo/Deturbo switching done in SMM. 4) Implemented <\> Turbo/Deturbo hot key. 5) Password checked after exiting Setup and before OS booting. 6) Fixed the problem with #9 GXE64 Video card losing its video at the end of POST. 7) Fixed the problem with WINICU having General Protection Failures. 8) Fixed the problem with Real Time Clock not being updated correctly when in Power Managed mode.
