Dell GX280 will not boot into OP. Keeps looping back to the Safe Mode screen over and over. Anyone know whats up?


This looks like a software or hardware conflict. Try running 'chkdsk' from WinXP setup cd (or Vista's), (after booting, choose option to repair).

If disk check does not help, then you will have to back-up your data manually, format the harddrive, and re-install OS.

Upon booting, i get dos prompt, doesn't do anything further


No compatibility problem in your case. XP should work well with Dell optiplex gx280. Try re-installing the OS, there is problem with the OS version you had used to install.Rate me if it is useful!!

Optiplex gx280 won't boot and cpu fan goes faster


Sounds like a bad motherboard, I try resetting the bios , removing everything but the video , could be a bad power supply too (if you have one jump the wires in there as a test). you can buy those dell MBs cheap on fleabay.

Dell Optiplex GX280 - On power ON , no Fan movement no display


Confirm no leaking or bulging capacitors on your mothboard.
refer to here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

As this was a common problem with the GX280.
If found, you will need to replace the capacitors.

The other check is to make sure the heatsink is fitted correctly, perhaps reaply the thermal paste if you have any. I know that high temps would switch the GX280 off.

My system hangs after about 5mins after booting


If it happens at 'random' times, and won't restart immediately, most likley it's overheating due to dust blocked heat sink / fan (or a bad fan)

If it always happens at the some point in the boot up before you get the password prompt .. most likley it's s/w

Hit F8 during power up.. select 'last known good'

If that fails, F8 and select 'Safe Mode'

If you get into Safe Mode, uninstall whatever you last installed that is causing the lock up (most likley some hardware driver or some virus/root kit you got via email)
