Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Umm...

 

What the fuck just happened..

 

I finished rebuilding an old dell optiplex GX 280

 

Plug it into wall and INSTANTLY TURNS ON

 

I here the fans pick up speed to the point where i couldn't here anything but my computer. 

 

It got WAY to loud and I didn't want to risk something shorting or exploding. 

 

I pulled the plug for the wall and triad it again, same thing. 

 

Whats wrong ?????

Umm some pc's like to turn on when they get power...

Especially older ones, never understood why tho.

Try to get it off when it's plugged in.


If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

My Dell does the same thing... after a few seconds it goes back to normal

So the extremeloudness in the fans is normal sometimes?

Have you checked the front panel connectors? Something may be shorting them. 

What could the front connectors do that would cause this? I dont know much about the front connectors at all. But from the looks of it, they haven;t been moved or modified since it was bought a LONG time ago.

The power switch connects to the front panel connectors, and essentially shorts two pins to start the PC. They could explain why it starts straight away.

CAN MY COMPUTER EXPLODE

No, computers can't make a big explosion, they might catch fire at worst case scenario, just unplug if that starts to happen

Make sure the PSU is set to the right voltage, 110/120 instead of 220/240. There should be a little red slider in the back of the PSU. Stick a screwdriver in there and slide the little thing to change it.

Could it be because I switched out the pentium 4 with a Celron

This is probably it. If you put a CPU in a motherboard that doens't support it the fans will just turn fast, and nothing at all will happen. Try again with the Pentium 4. Or did it work before with the Celeron?

However, following this advice, be extremely careful to not touch any capacitors or anything.

Test your hardware outside the case.
