My Dell optiplex gx 270 tower's chipset heats up and system shuts down and my friend's gx270 mother board is burnt due to same reasons

check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease might be getting to hot


another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit


hope this helps

Hi...am waqar... have pc dell gx 270, which is off by heasting of main IC.. iam very dirstrub by this

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a can of compressed air to do this.

I have a dell GX 270 that has orange light on mother board, shuts down randomly, seems hot, and says Alert! System battery voltage is low. The fan is running but doesn't kick out much air..

The battery message means you need to change the battery on the motherboard, it looks like a coin about the size of a nickel. Which fan is malfunctioning, the power supply fan, the case fan, or the processor fan?

Loud "jet engine taking off" type sound

If you changed out the power supply then the only other device that could be making that noise is your CPU cooling fan. To be sure, open the case and disconnect the CPU cooling fan plug from the motherbrd (MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF) and see if the noise stops. Don’t worry about the “Fan Failure Error” when you turn on the computer. Just hit F1 to continue. Don’t leave the computer running without the fan plugged in longer then necessary. After tying this procedure, please contact me for further diagnosis.

Dell motherboard {GX 270} over heating.

Hi

It seems the system is "dying" or already "dead". The initial heat issues suggests a faulty Processor (PRC) Fan. Faulty Power Supply Unit (PSU) Fan can have same effect.

Open the Base unit; disconnect everything (incluiding Keyboard, mouse, network) power-up and check that PRC and PSU fans are working.

Also check the QUAD Pack Diagnostic LEDs and compare the sequence with http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx270/en/ug/solve.htm#1235408.

This will help with identifying the cause. Try the Dell Suggested Resolution.

Dell Optiplex GX 270 pc desktop problem

I've heard that Dell will still honor the warranty if you mention the capacitors to them. They haven't recalled them, but they know it is a known problem.
