Having problems with your Dell OPTIPLEX GX150 PIII-1.0GHz 256MB 40GB DESKTOP (PCPIII1000DELL256MB) ?

I disabled the video on my dell optiplex gx150 to try to run a different video card and now I've got nothing. How do you turn the video back on when you can't see the screen?


Answers :

I would open up the case and take the cmos battery out. In addition, look at the motherboard to see if there is a set of jumpers near the battery that say something like clr or clrcmos (I can't tell by looking at the diagram on Dell's site if there is one). If you find 3 pins labeled like that, switch the jumper to the alternate position and then back again after about 15 seconds.
Now replace the battery.
Start the system and see if it works.
