Go start, right click my computer, click properties on the window that opens it will tell you the speed of your processor and the ram installed.
How much RAM pls.

Now with NO applications running and just the desktop press Ctrl Alt Delete. When task manager opens click the performance tab
Below the two graphs is Total Physical memory what is that pls
Underneath is Available - what is that please.

Go to Start then to Run
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On left side click on Disk Management
On right side you will see you hard drive.
Now I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply. Do the following to take a screenshot while the above is open and showing on your desktop.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop


Attach it to your next reply

Depending on which variant of the dell optiplex gx280 you have it came with one of five hard drive capacities.
The smallest supplied was 40Gb.
Is it within your knowledge that you have also been receiving messages regarding low disk space.
AND are you aware of the hard drive capacity and more to the point the amount of free space.
Also is that Simms still in the drive.

Lets take a look at the hard drive and see what you have.

Go to

1: Start
2: My Computer
3: Right Click on "C" drive
4: Click on Properties
5: In this field it will tell you total drive space and also free space

Please include results in your next reply

Take out that Simms Cd
Try this please
  • Restart the system.
  • At the Dell logo screen, press <F12>. Note:Some systems do not have an F12 key, to access the boot options you have to press the <0> (zero) key at the Dell logo screen.
  • At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics, then press <Enter> to begin PSA.
  • Write down any error codes listed.
