Question about Dell OPTIPLEX GX1 PIII-600MHz 128MB 10GB (DELLP2600) PC Desktop
I am having problems with my Dell Optiplex since trying to add an internal CD burner. After connecting the CD burner and closing the case; I reattached the cables and tried to turn it on. The green light came on for a second, then turned back off. I tried this several times, then tried removing the CD burner to see if it would resolve the problem. But it is still happening. I can hear the power supply start, and the fan starts running; but it powers down imediately after that. Any ideas?
This could be something as simple as whats called a chassis intrusion switch which is named normally 'JCI1'on the motherboard. When you take off the side of the pc it shorts and has to be cleared in the bios utility record if it has one, thats if you can get as far as the bios screen,if not try clearing the cmos by shorting the jumper on the mobo named 'JBAT1'. Put jumper on pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back on 1-2 pins and try re booting. Hope this gets you in the bios, if so if there are no accidentally loosened connections to any internal hardware you should boot into windows.
