Restore to factory specs optiplex sx260

The Optiplex series of systems have no restore partition to re-image the system. If you want to have a clean start, you will need to do a clean install of Windows, load the drivers and applications.
Drivers can be downloaded from but you will need the media for Windows and any applications.

Dell PC Desktop Optiplex GX260 Doesn't boot

Open up the case and remove any add in cards and memory modules. Try to start up by adding these back one at a time until the unit stops booting normally. The light combination is not one recognised in the user manual so I am guessing you have a non-descript fault with one of your components. Be careful when you open the case as to not disturb the ribbon to the motherboard which controls the power, I have had a very long experience trying to get one of these reconnected!
