Anyone ever have that problem??? (BTW.. I quit smoking all together now)
FlypSyde said:Anyone who has dealt with Dell Optiplex G1 PII-266 desktop computers might have come across this. For some strange reason these computers will, on a rare occasion, lock up requiring a restart. Then they'll refuse to boot and just beep at you. At this point the only thing you can do is remove the power cable because the power button won't work, only the reset button seems to work. To fix it you have to completely disconnect either the floppy drive or the cdrom drive (I forget which), plug in the computer, use the power button to shut it off, and then reconnect the floppy or cdrom. Just unplugging the computer won't fix it. For the 2 years that I worked with those machines I had it happen to me only three times with three different machines.

I got fed up as this was right when I was about to fall asleep and the hard drive clicked louder than a cricket in my eardrum. So I set the windows clock off by twelve hours. Solved the problem so it came on at noon now. BUt the clocke kept trying to reset itself and ended up being about 6 hours off the real time.

Now that is strange IMHO...
Would I call it a problem? Depends on how you look at it I suppose...lol
