Can't play half life2!

I've only recently got a computer (dell optiplex sx270), I bought half life 2 episode pack and it won't run it. I think it's the graphics/video card, is it possible to upgrade it and/or get a new driver so i can play this game. Any help will be very much appreciated, thanks.....from a very frustrated scotsman!

Well, first find out if the requirements of the game are within the limits of the Hardware specs of the computer. If it has expansion slots or a seperate video card aposed to onboard, than you can buy a new one and put it in. you wil have to make sure yo buy the right video card. Your system is most likely PCI express so you will need that one.

Look up the specs and take them with you when you go looking so someone who knows about computers can help you pick the right one.

I've recently bought one of these myself, and having looked inside the unit, I see that there are no slots to upgrade! I'm sorry, but I think you may be a bit dissappointed. WYSIWYG! (What you see is what you get!)

I must confess though, I am most impressed with it's general performance! Quiet, quick and makes a great little server!

Dell optiplex sx270: loud, steady noise like an alarm a few seconds after I turn on the PC


You can check the meanings of the error beep codes HERE. Every beep code means something different. The bad thing is that the code I think you are speaking of is a fatal error.

Good luck

The 2 drivers listed for Dell SX270 on Dell website do not work. Still get yellow exclamation in device manager after trying both graphics drivers.


try removing the driver/uninstalling it, and rebooting it. One of those should do it. I believe it's the intel 82865G graphics controller for the SX270.

You are limited in the choices for video card The Optiplex GX270 only has a 160W power supply Not only that but because of the slim case, you're most likely limited to low profile video cards. That means the choices will be extremely limited & not very good. Even after the upgrade, you'll most likely have to stick with older games. follow this link to buy low profile video cards http://www.directron.com/lowprofile.html

Begin by checking device manager. If there is a Unknown device or PCI device listed but not properly installed you will need to identify your audio chipset and downlaod and install the correct driver. 90% of all onboard audio chipsets are AC 97' by Realtek.

If you need help in locating the drivers just post back.

Blown dell motherboard


Have you checked to make sure it wasn't the power supply? If this motherboard is still inside the pc and the cd/dvd lights up, or the network card shows life, fans, case lights, etc: than I would rule bad mobo. If nothing shows signs of life, try power supply or even better maybe a lose connection.Check all cabling and wire plugs. Clean out any dust.
