Check warranty on a dell gx260

Super high amount of views. Great seller with very good positive feedback and over 50 ratings. Like us on Facebook. See Details on eBay Amazon. Find out now! This is the third Dell I've seen with this symptom [Power LED is Orange] this year and the first two both had a burned out connector on the motherboard.

The connector of concern is the the 2x2 pin power connector. On the motherboard. I've seen this problem occur when there is a problem with the extention power outlet or multi power socket. Try connecting it to a different power socket and without UPS on it's own if possible.

The LED is a warning signal or "idiot light". It only alerts you that there is some issue. Get a voltmeter and measure the output voltages from the supply. If these are out of spec then you should replace the supply immediately. Looked at the box and it is a small mini tower form factor Checked cables and they look fine.

CMOS has been replaced twice. The first time it was replaced, the user loaded the OS and apps and then on final reboot received the low voltage error with the amber led. He replaced the cmos again and still saw the low voltage message. I plugged it in and the board light illuminates, but nothing happens.

Press the power button and ZIP. Seems the PS is dead?

Would you agree? Yes, I'd agree. Yes it does and I am sourcing one now. Hopefully it resolves the problem. I will post back once I get the PS and try it. Thanks for your input :.

I agree it's most likely the PSU. There are times that a short somewhere else motherboard, a drive will pull enough power that the PSU is overloaded and won't operate correctly.

Not real common but it happens. You can't get an accurate voltage check if the PSU is unloaded or if there's a short in the load so you need a PSU checker or to try it in a different known good system to check the PSU itself. I've had similar symptoms with both the gx and gx series. In some cases turning the power off and on a few times in a row will get the system working again. I agree it's -likely- the PSU but running out to buy one without doing any additional trouble shooting or problem isolation has a nasty way of thinning an asker's wallet and increasing the size of their un-needed parts pile.

Experts should bear in mind that you are not playing with your own toys and you are not using your own money. Even if it is a 'most likely' problem, to suggest buying something when further trouble shooting and problem isolation CAN be done to identify the problem with greater certainty and -hoping- you -guessed- right is unprofessional easter egging and a manner suggestive of an attitude where it's your points that matter and to Hell with the well-being of the asker.

Sam, I agree wholeheartedly with you, but sometimes you can only do so much. I guess it depends on who your working for and what your role is in resolving issues and of course the wonderful world of warranty and corporate customers who don't care and just want a new one. Without any spares to work with and limitations on checking voltage levels etc. For me, in this case, I have a dead system that reacts to nothing. Have to start somewhere As well, parts can be returned I agree it's best to do as much troubleshooting as you can before buying parts and starting the "swaparoo" game, These symptoms, coupled with the "on-the-way-to-total-failu re" "low voltage" warning, sure point to power supply failure.

At this point I am at the mercy of a spare PS and expect one to arrvie by Friday this week. Once I have it in and tested I will post back and let you know how it turned out. Thanks for your comments - I am learning alot from you two gentlemen :.

The thing to do would be to aquire or borrow the tools you need. As you are tasked with this in the first place I'm sure there's another PC in your life that you could 'borrow' a PSU from long enough for a swap-check. I HOPE you luck-out but if you don't you've sent money and wasted time. I wouldn't want to tell my customer or boss that This 4 pin connector on Dell's has a history of acring and burning due to poor contact. I don't know if it's poor assembly procedures or if Dell got a batch of loose fitting connectors.

It is on the 12 volt rail. To check it properly you need to disconnect it and inspect the actual metal contacts on both sides. You may have, I can't tell from what you wrote. I'm going back to sleep now Wow, ok pcbonez. Thanks for your comments. To address your post - I agree to a point what your saying but it doesn't apply in my case.

If I could do more rather than waste time waiting for a part I don't absolutely know will work I would. Limits of my role in this case don't allow me to do that. I am not trained or allowed to take hardware apart to that degree. Surface only. I work on Warrantied hardware and the vendor calls the shots - not me. This box is OOW yes, but protocol is protocol and I just follow procedure.

Here's hoping it works out. Good thing the box in question is sitting in a cage on a dusty shelf and there is zero hurry to fix it. Now I'm, going to sleep I will indeed post the outcome Gary. I'm very familiar with that.
