Chainzsaw a b ) Power supply a b V Motherboard June 15, 2011 8:10:54 PM I've dealt with those Horrible GX 270/260s. Like King smp said - those motherboards have a massive problem with the capacitors on the motherboard. I wouldnt be surprised if your motherboard is toast. I've dealt with, and had to replace many of those Dell GX computers, they were slow, prone to hardware failures, and generally not worth the money. It's best to get rid of it. king smp a b ) Power supply a b V Motherboard June 15, 2011 10:12:35 PM Hey the Dell Optiplex 740/745/755s are nice Japanese made Rubycon caps Dell learned their lesson from the GX 260/270/280 capacitor problems they had Dell is still in court fighting lawsuits from that In all fairness HP and others also used those caps king smp a b ) Power supply a b V Motherboard June 16, 2011 3:31:24 PM Hey millions of banks,schools and government agencies cant be wrong Still is a Dell P.O.S.
