Re: DELL OPTIPLEX PROBLEM

I bought this used...who knows what abuse it has been thru before me. I always shut my computer off. Even my new one at work. It has a SSD, it's a Dell,and its running Windblows 10. We had several power spikes over night 2 days ago,but my computer was fine...since I turned it off....

Re: DELL OPTIPLEX PROBLEM

So I plugged it all back together this evening when I got home from work. It powered up the way it usually does. I ran it for nearly an hour with no problems. The RAM that failed was one of the original sticks of 4 Gb. I had maxed it out with 16 Gig,(it originally had 8) so with 12 Gig it's fine. No...

Re: DELL OPTIPLEX PROBLEM

I unplugged the computer,and reset the RAM. The computer hasn't run much; I've been working so much,some repairs have backed up in my shop. The inside of the tower is very clean.

Re: DELL OPTIPLEX PROBLEM

No,...if it's not in use,it's unplugged. When I plug it in,the fans are running,and the power button is blinking orange. The green LED on the back is lit.
I tried pushing the reset while on,....nothing.

DELL OPTIPLEX PROBLEM

I turned on my shop computer today,and it started up fine. After about 30 minutes,the music file I was listening to,began to repeat,as if stuck in a loop.

Re: YOUTUBE REACTIONS

I could NEVER stand GnR before,and I detest them even more now. If I hear "Sweet Child O mine" 1 more time, I'm gonna stick a screwdriver in each of my ears. Axel Rose is a total douche bag. I was playing guitar better than Slash did,when I was 13 years old...TOTALLY hate them...! Ugh...!💀💀💀💀👿👺
