Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
I could not log on to the system. I heard two beeps during the starting process and later a message saying press F1 to enter reboot and F2 to enter setup. Either choice could not lead me to entering the system. Could you help me, it is important, as I have a lot of docs in the hard drive.
My 4600 dell does not read hard drive

If the 2 beeps were together, then it is a check sum or memory problem. When it boots enter the bios setup(F2) and check the system time and date (located in 'Standard cmos Settings') to see if it is correct, as this is a good indicator of a flat cmos battery (large type watch battery.) If time and date is incorrect replace battery, if ok turn off pc and try re-setting the bios by putting the jumper on the 'JBAT1' terminal on the motherboard on pins 1-2 ont pins 2-3 then back onto 1-2; then boot pc back up and go back into the bios, set the date and time in 'Standard Cmos Settings' and then look on main bios menu for 'LOAD BIOS DEFAULTS' or similair If non of above works, maybe you have upgraded the memory, remove it and try again with original memory stick. Hope this is of some help
