Remove your RAM chips and re-insert. Make sure you remove static charges in your body first by placing your hands on the body of your CPU. Beeping usually results from improperly inserted memory cards. Also make sure all your PCI/AGP cards are firmly inserted in their slots.

SATA Hard Drive Type The Dell Optiplex GX280 Takes?


Hi,

It makes no difference providing the computer motherboards support SATA interface.

SATA 1 and 2 drivers are in the BIOS. If all the computers have SATA 1 you can upgrade the BIOS to latest version via Dell's support website.

OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop only start de fans tun


I have had this problem and never quite got to the bottom of it. Because it doesn't get too far when in starts I think it is memory related or bios. Opening and closing the case can reset the bios on some computers so check this setting in bios, to stop it happening try turning of sleep or standby function in bios.

I had 1 long beep, 3 faster beeps, then 2 beeps *I think*, and also my fan was going crazy fast - like someone else said "a vacuum cleaner"...
Well, I reseated the memory and problem was gone - it did seem like the memory was kind of "loose" - perhaps from shipping (bought this used).
The link to Dell's website was good for the beeps AND the "ABCD" codes reading on the back. Thanks very much! God Bless.

Hello,

You may have some machines with the bad capacitor problem. Check out saome pictures from my web site at www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm Open your computers and see if you have any capacitors that look like the pictures. The Dell GX270's and the GX280's have the problem. There are several places on the internet that can repair your boards if you find that this is the problem. I hope this helps.
