One of these three sites should have your drivers. It depends on if the graphics processor is Nvidia, AMD, or Intel.

That model has standard IDE interface for hard drive. Don't think 500 GB or higher comes with that interface. The standard now is SATA interface for hard drives. Here is a lnk to the owner's manual for you model:
ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_optiplex_desktop/optiplex-gx60_user%27s%20guide_en-us.pdf
You tell the difference between standard IDE and SATA in that the standard IDE interface uses a wide flat ribbon cable to connect to the drive. SATA uses a small thin cable as shon in the following link:

You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Dell computers will have a recovery disc set or recovery partition. If when booting the computer you see a option for (the F# key will vary) F11 Recovery, press that and follow the prompts for a "Destructive Restore" Otherwise you would need to insert the first recovery disc and follow the instructions on your screen. Sometimes the manufacturer doesn't include the discs and there will be a program on your computer to create a set or you can order a set from Dell.

Hello you can download the drivers here at dell:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/ussoho1/Product/optiplex-gx60

Download and install first the chipset driver.

You maybe need to unzip the file before you install.

Good luck

Do you have another valid administrator account which can normally log on? If so, you can log on as the administrator to change the account you forgotten.
Or,you can think about the Windows Password Reset , it is very usefull and convenient.

At last,I suggeset you to create a reset disk after reset windows password so you will not afriad forgot windows password any more.

OK what type of keyboard are you using Serial or USB? A serial type keyboard has a round end that plugs into the computer's PURPLE port (the Green Port is for the mouse).

A USB type keyboard has a flat end that plugs into one of the computer's usb ports.

If you are using a Serial (Round end) type keyboard, it is not Plug and Play (meaning you cannot unplug it or plug it in while the computer is running or it will not be recognized). You can only plug or unplug the serial keyboard when the computer is off. If you turn the computer off and plug it in good then reboot and you still have a problem then since you have tried 3 different keyboards, maybe the Purple Serial Port where the keyboard plugs into the computer is bad. Try a USB Type Keyboard.

A USB (Flat end) keyboard is Plug and Play. You can unplug and plug it while the computer is on. Also you have the luxury of plugging it into any one of the computer's usb ports.

Turn the computer off. Unplug the keyboard then put it back in snuggly. If your keyboard is the Serial type (the end that goes into the computer's Purple Port is Round) then it is not plug and play. By that it means you cannot plug or unplug the keyboard while the computer is on or it will lose connection. If your keyboard is the usb type (flat end goes into one of the computer's usb ports) then it is plug and play and you don't have to have the computer turned off to plug or unplug it.

You can always try another keyboard if the issue is still there.

The Dell Support web site only offers audio drivers for Windows XP or earlier versions of Windows.
If you are using Windows Vista or 7 then you will probably have to rely on the default audio driver that these versions of Windows will load automatically when installed as Dell do not offer an official device driver for these versions.
The alternative approach if the built in sound device is not recognised and you cannot find a suitable device driver would be to buy either an internal sound card or a USB sound card - the latter just plugs into the USB port, provides the normal audio sockets and can be used to connect your speakers, headphones, microphone etc.

Hi antonykionyo

DELL OPTIPLEX GX60 DESKTOP PC AUDIO/SOUND DRIVER

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System, consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question, including information about your Operating System.

Check the status of the Audio Device and the Audio Driver in Device Manager.

Start > (My) Computer > (System Properties) View System Settings > Device Manager

This will tell you if the Audio/Sound Device is installed and functioning properly and if the Audio/Sound Driver is installed properly. If a red 'x' or a yellow question or exclamation mark appears next to the Audio/Sound Device, then there is probably a settings anomaly, fault, error or conflict with the Audio Device and/or its Driver.

AUDIO DEVICE SETTINGS
For your Audio/Sound Device to function properly, it must be set as the Default Device:

Start > Control Panel > (Hardware and Sound) Sounds Speech and Audio Devices > Sounds and Audio Devices > (Manage Audio Devices) Audio > click on the Drop Down Menu to the right of "Sound Playback - Default Device" (preferred Default Playback Device) > select "ADI 198x Integrated Audio" > Apply > OK > Restart computer.

AUDIO/SOUND DRIVER PROBLEMS
Re-install the correct Audio/Sound Driver that relates to both the Audio/Sound Device (ADI 198x Integrated Audio) and your Operating System, then restart the computer. Install the Audio/Sound Driver either from the Dell Drivers and Utilities CD or from the official Dell support website here:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R71579&SystemID=PLX_PNT_CEL_GX60&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=2430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=3&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=92933

If your Operating System is not the original Windows 2000 or Windows XP for which this PC was designed, then it is highly probable that no Audio/Sound Driver exists for that Operating System.

If you are committed to both this PC and an unsupported Operating System but all the other Devices and their Drivers are functioning normally except the Audio Device or you are using Win 2000 or Win XP but the Audio/Sound Problem remains unsolvable (faulty Audio/Sound Chip), then consider buying and installing either an internal 5.1, 7.1 or 8.1 PCI Sound Card or an external USB Sound Card that is pre-confirmed as being compatible with your Operating System. They can all be inexpensive. See examples here:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=5.1+7.1+8.1+pci+soundcard&x=5&y=17

I hope this helps.

Try renaming the Drive Name by going to my computer - manage tab. Rename the drive and then restart your computer.Else you can install Gear Driver and check. Before installing gear driver, please make sure you uninstall the existing gear driver manually rather than from add or remove programs.
