I recently reinstalled a Dell OptiPlex GX260 using the drivers from the website with no problem.

Your posted link is the correct one.

You have to install the CHIPSET driver first as this links Windows to the various motherboard parts, then install the individual drivers (audio, video, etc.)

My dell optiplex gx 260 has a blank screen when I turn it on. The windows xp professional screen comes up then when it goes to where the desktop should show up all I get is a gray screen

1. From reading your issue it seems the video card is defective.
2. If you have received the Windows XP splash screen and then the monitor displays a gray screen then only two things have happened here your drivers are corrupt for the video card or the video card itself has failed.
3. Suggestion: install a new video card compatible with Windows XP.
4. Most Dell Optiplex desktops have the video graphics card integrated to the the mother board.

Dell optiplex gx 260 180w power supply. My hp monitor's best resolution is 1920 by 1200 at 60hz. The gx can only manage 1600 by 1200 at 60hz. Have you a solution to this problem?

Hi Trevarth,

The Optiplex GX 260 was outfitted with either Integrated Intel Extreme graphic or a 4x AGP video card. In either case if you try to change the resolution and 1920 X 1200 is not an option, the video card does not support that high of a resolution. If you want the higher resolution you will have to buy an AGP video card. When selecting a card, look at the specs and make sure that the higher resolution is supported. The good news is that AGP cards are not that expensive. Here are a couple site you can find video cards.

You can find very cheap used one here:,p_ord:p&prmd=ivns&fp=a9f29339130ebba7

but be careful to check the specs before you order.

Hope this helps

When you switch on the pc(dell optiplex gx 260),

Pop the case and make sure the video card, RAM, and CPU is all seated correctly in their slots, and then make sure all fuses you can see inside/outside the case are in good shape (if applicable)

If this is happening on all workstations you should look at your network settings and verify that your DNS settings are correct.  Also look in the error logs on the server to see if it is fillingup with system or application errors.
