You need the bios/operating system disk to start, and then you would need a full version of windows to install.

If removing CMOS battery did not help, you need to do the BIOS reset from jumper on motherboard.

Here's how you can defragment your disk:

Windows Vista, 7:

  1. Open Disk Defragmenter by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type Disk Defragmenter, and then, in the list of results, click Disk Defragmenter.
  2. Under Current status, select the disk you want to defragment.
  3. To determine if the disk needs to be defragmented or not, click Analyze disk. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    Once Windows is finished analyzing the disk, you can check the percentage of fragmentation on the disk in the Last Run column. If the number is above 10%, you should defragment the disk.
  4. Click Defragment disk. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Disk Defragmenter might take from several minutes to a few hours to finish, depending on the size and degree of fragmentation of your hard disk. You can still use your computer during the defragmentation process.

Windows XP:

  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Right-click the local disk volume that you want to defragment, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Tools tab, click Defragment Now.
  4. Click Defragment.

A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

You replaced the power supply and still Amber(orange). Your motherboard is probably bad. An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Since you replaced the power supply, my guess is that the motherboard has a problem.

I need to know what KIND of Dell Desktop that you have in order to analyze your problem.

Dell OptiPlex... | Answered on May 01, 2014


That means that the available memory in your computer is tapped out. You need to install video card with it's own memory.

Dell OptiPlex... | Answered on May 01, 2014


Yes the software driver will be different.

Dell OptiPlex... | Answered on Apr 30, 2014


Why? You will probably screw up your display if the video card is Nvidia. If you have an ATI card then you need software drivers for that type of card.

Dell OptiPlex... | Answered on Apr 30, 2014


I'm not sure why you would want to but this would require you to uninstall Windows 7 and then format the hard drive and install Windows XP. FYI - Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP as of early April 2014 so you won't get support from them anymore. The internet is still full of help though if you really need to downgrade.

I would suggest reading this service guide for the Dell optiplex 745 to find out the problem solution. There are several fuses in the unit and problem could be in power supply.
