    yes, standard ATX fits in the 280 tower, it it was the desktop, then you'd need a specially designed one.

I need a replacement Sunbeam/Black Steel 480W Power Supply made by casegears


If it's a standard ATX case, then any power supply is compatible.
equal or higher power output is fine.
so a 500w will still only use the power needed by the hardware.

Where can I find power supply for HP model ATX300-12ZBD


There are lots of ATX power supplies on the market. You do not need to use a HP 300 watt power supply. Just purchase one that suit your requirements - 300 watt or more. These power supplies have standard mounting holes.

Sounds like the power supply is not compatible with the motherboard. If the motherboard can't support a 400 watt powers supply you will either get a blinking light or nothing at all. Those optiplex's use a proprietory power supply because of the pin connectors and how a power supply is supposed to fit in there. If you can't find a 400 watt power supply that fits then get a hold of Dell and see if they sell one for that computer.

No power up, there are no +12 and +5 volts


Sounds like a power supply failure, System should accept a standard ATX power supply

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.

Dell Optiplex GX280 Video Card Install Problem


You hit that one right on the dot.  ATI website showed the specs for that graphics card you installed as needing a 300 Watt power supply.  Good news though... I researched newegg.com and I believe I found your 300W power supply.  There are 4 different Optiplex gx280 designs with 4 completely different power supplies.  Since you bought the low-profile video card, I believe you have the slim computer case and this power supply should work for you...
