Hi bsheponmiah
Sounds like your Facebook Account was hacked.
Do the following suggestion below...As Soon As Possible.
If you still have access to your account, then you should change your password right away and rebuild your account the way it was before it was hacked.
Report the hacking to Facebook and let them deal with the person that hacked your account.
If you do not have access to your account.
You will need to contact facebook security right away and get them to retake over the account for you.
When you are able to prove that you are the original owner of the account they will then give you back control of your account.
VERY IMPORTANT: Let Facebook know what happened as soon as possible.
If the account was hacked and the hacker is using the account to do some bad stuff, then they will supend your account and possibly delte it because they think that you are the one doing the bad stuff.

Suggest start with seeing if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

To do this you bypass the Power On switch.
This has nothing to do with the Power On switch directly, nor it's wires.

Dell Support > Optiplex GX270 > Service Manual,


Click on System Board
The connector number 18 - power connector (POWER), is a
20-pin ATX main power cable, connector on the motherboard.

Number 19 for the Small Mini-Tower model motherboard.

A general example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,


Observe the photo to the Right.
Note the Green wire, and all of the Black wires.
The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Even if I am mistaken about the ATX main power cable, and it is a 24-pin ATX main power cable, it still has a Green - Soft Power On wire, and many Black - Ground wires.

Just like the 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's connector on the motherboard. Scroll the above page down a little more ]

The Green wire is TEMPORARILY jumped to ANY Black wire.

The preferred jumper wire is a straightened out paperclip, bent into a U-shape.
The top of the U is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape. This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

Turn the U-shaped jumper wire upside down. The 'legs' are what is used.
One 'leg' goes down into a socket hole with the Green wire.
The other 'leg' goes down into a socket hole, with ANY Black wire in it.

ATX main power cable is plugged in, as shown in the photo to the Right.
Where the wires go down into this main power cable's connector, is the BACK of the connector.

The jumper wire goes down into the Back of the connector.
The leg of the jumper wire slides past the insulation, of the existing wire that is already in the socket hole.

The leg of the jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole, far enough to touch a metal terminal, that is on the end of the wire.

Looking at the middle photo, you are looking at the tips of this style of metal connector, that is on the end of every wire, that goes in the 20-pin ATX main power cable's connector,


The left side in the view is the part that crimps around the insulation of the wire, and the part the U-shaped jumper wire touches.
The right side of the view, shows the tip that you see in the socket holes, shown in the middle photo.

There may be a spark when the U-shaped jumper wire touches those metal terminals. (Green wire/Black wire)
You may wish to wear a glove on the hand, that you are using for the jumper wire.

HOWEVER, the Soft Power On circuit uses 5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC.
The glove thing is just to make you feel safer.

The contact made is no more than 2 seconds.
The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.

IF, the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.

IF, the Power Supply does Not come on you have a bad Power Supply.

No if's, buts, or doubt about it.

Post back with your findings in a Comment. Also post what type model it is.
Small Form Factor (SFF)?
Small Desktop?
Small Mini-Tower

The Power Supply case shape is what differs.

You may be able to use this type of Power On switch, if yours is bad. It will be part of the plastic Power On Button assembly.

(After removing the Power On Button assembly, I use warm water, (Almost hot), or a hair dryer, to soften the plastic Power On Button assembly, then replace the Power On switch )

I have the same model PC with a 250gig Sata HDD and dont have any problems. If a PC can read 250g it should be able to read 1000g. This may sound silly but is Sata turned on in Bios

there is a known issue with the dell optiplex 270's. if you open the case and see the top of the capacitors are not perfectly flat then you have an issue. I would go ahead and upgrade and invest in a good backup solution.

This is a self check for the monitor. This self test means that the monitor is not getting a signal from your computer. Have you installed any video cards in this computer?

If its onboard video meaning you never installed a video card then your video card is bad. Try purchasing a video card and installing it in the computer and your problem should be fixed. I hope this helps you. Any other questions feel free to ask thanks.

Do you get a prompt to press CTRL F11 at startup?
What prompts do you get? You should be prompted to enter setup or hit F12 (I think) for boot options. If you are not prompted to enter system recovery, then you might be out of luck.
If the computer was refurbished, it is possible that the previous owner reformatted the drive and wiped out the recovery partition.

The question I would ask is why are you trying to do a system recovery?
Can't you just uninstall the stuff you don't want?

This means that you do not have a driver for this device. The link below leads to download location on dells website for your machine. Start by installing the chipset driver. If that doesn't fix it, try the modem and network driver sections. without looking at your machine I can't be sure which driver you are missing. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=PLX_PNT_CEL_GX270&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
