Hi i've given up on trying to fix my Dell dimension 5150 and I'm going to get an ex work PC but the only problem is that it only has a CD rom drive. So this may sound like a stupid question but will I be able to swap my DVD drive from my old computer and put it on the Dell OptiPlex GX280?
Its not powering up. Theres a flashing amber light when you hold the power button and the motherboard light comes on but nothing else. I was told it was the PSU but I changed that and the same thing happened so I took it into to a computer shop. The guy there thought it was the motherboard that was at fault but as dell motherboards can be quite expensive I thought it would be cheaper buying a new comp as its only £50 and even if I get a year out of it i'll be happy.
