I'm not familiar with cd creator, but all programmes are the same format, to burn mp3's to a cd and not change to .wav or standard cd play, you have to burn the mp3's as a data cd, this will leave them in tact and an mp3 player will recognise them as mp3 files a cd player will recognise them also as mp3 but as individual files which you can play. The best software for this in my opinion is nero and i think you can go to www. and download a trial.

Have a dell gx280, shut it down last night and this morning the normally green start up lite was flashing amber. after looking at some forum most replied with either replacing the mb or power supply which...

It's a pretty common issue with the 270 & 280. More times than not it is blown capacitors at the root of the problem. Replacing the caps is simple if you know how to solder very well & makes for an easy fix. Also, make sure you're pushing enough power through your supply.

Dell-optiplex-360 no out- put sound in my system please tell me how to audio out put come

The system , may not give you any sound due to the following points of failure.
1. Bad sound card or sound port
2. Windows speakers settings are on mute

You need to eliniate these points of failure on buy one.

You can run a simple fix form Dell for the problem, If the same doesnot resolve the issue , then you might have to replace the sound card if its add on, or replace the motherboard

My dell optiplex 330 can not switch on, whan I put power on I get orang light only.

If you are getting an amber light flashing, your power supply is faulty.

If it is a solid amber light, you motherboard is faulty or one of the componants are faulty.

I would suggest giving Dell a call. They would beable to pin point the problem and give you a quote. Some of their componants are non standard and can only be purchased from them.

You could try reseating all your componants on the last resort but it is unlikly to help.

My brand new dell optiplex 330 is not booting

I know everyone is not a tech, but, if you will take the cover off and while powered on, look at the large silver looking fins (heat sink) on what is known as the North Bridge chip ane use the BACK of your finger to move slowly and see if there is heat on it, and then the base of the CPU as well, if there is no heat, the motherboard is the likely culprit. I know it seems to be low tech, but it is how I derermined 2 Dell motherboards were bad and have replaced them both with sucess.
Also look at the back of the power supply for a small red switch, make sure the power setting matches your area ... 115V or 240V.
Last resort, look here.

Lost resolution windows vista upgrade on GX260

Hi all,

I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me:

1. Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window.
2. Click ‘Device Manager’
3. Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’
4. Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’.
5. Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’
6. Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’
7. Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next.

This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!
