Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?

I have just bought a preowned dell optiplex sx260 but when i try and boot it up it comes up with the error message ''no dhcp or proxy dhcp offers were received'' please help

Answers :

Just restore it when u first start it up before anything tap f 11 it will take your through a restore and will put original drivers on.
It's more than likely your hard drive that has failed 100% certain.It means install a new hard drive and install the operating system that came on the disc with the pc or maybe you havn't the disc ,so it could be costly buying a replacement disc from dell so buy one off ebay .Good luck
