Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
Am trying to fix my daughter's Dell Optiplex GX260. When I first got it, it took 22 minutes to boot to desktop. Discovered it had two operating systems on it, W2K Server AND Windows XP. Have no idea why/who did that (some so-called repair guy). Formatted hard drive, did clean install of W2K Pro and updated (flashed) BIOS (from Dell A02 to A09). Now it takes 9½ minutes to boot to desktop, so we're making progress. Have a Hiren's Boot Disk & got a message on that where it said L1 cache was disabled. Is this what's making it run so slooooow?? Nowhere in BIOS screens can I find a place to reset factory default settings...anyone know where this is in the BIOS? Please, need your help. Thanks in advance!
Sir try to remove the pill battery its in the inside of ur box that return it that might give an error said that u shud configure again ur time and date but that is easy but taht will increase teh speed and gives a reset to full factory defaults

Your problems all are related to the Operating system configuration and the compatibilty of the system - Running server operating system in any Pc enviroment makes it to boot slowly only
In your case you cannot set cache from your bios because you may not find that option to enable or disable L1 or L2 cache because dell bios is not that much user freindly.
Cache memory is the main player in all computers for their speed "how much cache that must speed " L1 cache is the primary cache and the fastest to enable it you should find some third party tool for over clocking. System repair utilities, Doctor Diagonstic, PC Doctor etc...run a test it will change the present slow configuration to a fast one by changing its values which manually only can be done by a very good expert..
