Question about Dell OptiPlex SX270 PC Desktop
I have the same issue - identical.
My sx270 gets relatively little use and spends a lot of time powered off. The location is also an indoor, but unheated room. Temperatures are therefore low (but not freezing) in winter. Being by the coast there is also a certain level dampness in the air.
This fix is clearly lo-tech and short-term. But it has worked for me more than once and may be enough to help some of you out in an emergency.
I have found that by gently warming the PC first (no kidding!) with a hairdryer set to low seems to do the trick.
Hope this helps.
