I smell overheat , scanning for errors is a good idea , but I like to solve problems before they start

overheat is the reason computers start eating files.

recommended that you tripple check the heat sink for dirt and dust , along with the rest of the computer.

ellimination of dirt is step 1

step 2 is make sure you have adiquit ventalation and that the room temperature is 75 degrees or colder.

and a final step is to ditch that factory heat sink and get a real heat sink cooler assemboly.

ESPECIALY with pentium 4 , as they can easly creep up to 100 degrees

when the Pentium 4 reaches over 100 degrees the motherboards thermal protection may kick in
and shut down the intire computer.

you could dissable the thermal protection in the bios but thats not a good idea.

Enjoy

Dell optiplex GX280 tower machine, pc reboot again and again, fan run so fast and make alot of sound, also power light blink red instead of green, i have changed rams but facing same problem, what sho


Hello here is the home page:

I think you have some kind of a virus or malware on your system.

Install this program and make a full scan:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

You maybe have to start the pc in failsafe mode by pressing F8 while you reboot.

Install also a better FREE antivirus program:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5201

Please uninstall any other antivirus programs before you install microsoft security essentials. Run a full scan when installed and updated.It`not great to have more than one anti virus program installed. Most antivirus programs have a background scanner running to protect you from virus vhile you surf on the internet open a file etc.With more than one antivirus program the pc`s performance will be decreased.

There are a lot of things that can cause a computer to shut down.This could also be the power supply.Try also to renew the thermal grease between the cpu and the fan but BE CAREFULL not to damage the cpu.
If you are unsuccessfull at resolving the problem visit a computer repair shop.

When you talk about checking memory, it's the physical RAM stick inside the computer. RAM does not have sectors like a hard disk drive. If it does happen to be bad I'd replace it with at least 1GB to 2GB. 512MB is really low.

Good luck

Dell Optiplex GX280 restarts suddenly? all files closed and . the restart could be after 2,3 minutes of power on. I don't know why its behaving like this?


Hi, sounds like a crash, do you get any report messages after reboot? Try starting in safe mode; press Del button during initial bootup, once in safe mode you can reset to a time before the problem started. Hope this helps, if not come back to me?

Dell GX280 will not boot into OP. Keeps looping back to the Safe Mode screen over and over. Anyone know whats up?


This looks like a software or hardware conflict. Try running 'chkdsk' from WinXP setup cd (or Vista's), (after booting, choose option to repair).

If disk check does not help, then you will have to back-up your data manually, format the harddrive, and re-install OS.

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 GX150 beeps 5 times on startup.


This normally means there is a memory error. Have you recently added memory to the sytem? You can try to remove and reseat all memory modules in the system to see if that clears the problem.

Boot problem with Dell Optiplex GX150


To reinstall Xp from the CD you need to press F2 and go into the BIOS then select the boot order configuration and make the CD the first boot device and the hard disk the second boot device.
After installing XP, if you wish you can go back into the BIOS and change the boot order to boot from the hard disk first.
