Question about Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop
Thanks for replying. Can't flash the bios as machine wont boot and bios IC is soldered to the board. I have processed about 200 of these units in the last month and have a known good test bed. I think it may be to do with the board not sensing PSU voltages correctly on switch on - I am still working on it.
Dell are not very forth coming with any info, here in the uk. The boards are all the same made by foxconn Various Dell p/n's CG815 / DG389 / G8310 ... etc but all the same thing.
Any help you can give would be appreciated
