Q: DVD drive for Dell Optiflex 960 Slim Form Factor

Hi,

I just got a refurbished Dell Optiflex 960 Slim Form Factor desktop PC, which does not have a DVD drive in it. Do I need to get a certain DVD drive for this model or will just any be suitable??
I downloaded a manual for it as shown below, but just found it totally confusing.

I'm looking at several Dell boards that I intend to use in a standard, ATX, non-Dell case. My question goes to their form factor and whether they will bolt into a standard ATX case. The boards are sold by AscendTech.us and are all marked "micro ATX".

Most of these boards come with a backing plate attached that will not be used.

My understanding is that ATX is ATX all day long and all ATX boards should bolt into ATX cases. But, I want to be sure before I order.

Hello everyone. I am making this post to find out what you all suggest on a small graphics card I can get to insert into the PCI Express x16 slot of my Dell Optiplex 760 computer?

It is a small form factor so it will have to be a very small card and one that does not require a lot of power since the power supply is only 250w I believe.

Right now, it is using the onboard VGA connection and a CRT monitor is hooked up to it. I would like to use a DVI monitor and maybe even be able to run some older games on minimum settings.

I will try to include a few pictures of the desktop.

___________

The computer specs are:

Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 3.33GHz CPU
4GB RAM DDR2-800
DVDROM
Onboard Video and Sound cards
Vista Business
250w Power Supply? I could check this to verify.
2TB Sata Hard drive

Would an XFX HD 5450 work? Here is a link to it.

The dimensions of the card are: 7.17" x 3.19" x 1.1" which should fit I would say?
but it does specify that a minimum of a 400w power supply is recommended,
so I should stay away from that one?

I use a Dell OptiPlex 755 Small Form Factor computer in my bedroom, and it works great for most things. Though I want to give it a nudge in graphics. But I also don't want to buy a graphics card that won't fit inside the computer. I know I'll need a low profile graphics card. So my questions is, what is the maximum dimensions for a PCIe graphics card in a Dell OptiPlex 755 Small Form Factor.

A:Maximum Dimensions for Installing a PCIe Graphics Card in a Dell OptiPlex 755 Small Form Factor

I don't know what the maximum dimensions are, but they are tight and you are limited by the power supply. Bearing that in mind, the Sapphire 6450 is a good choice.

Starting Feb 23, 2017, there is no sound with Dell Optiplex 780 desktop computer (small form factor) with Windows 10
ie no system sounds
ie when I use vlc media player, no sound
When I use Windows Media Player, it says "encountered a problem while playing the file."
When I use vlc player, it opens the audio file, advances the time elapsed, but the speakers are silent

Just did a online chat with Dell support and it left me confused. I currently have a 256GB SSD and want to add a second drive. I already made a mistake by ordering a 3.5" drive that I had to return, so I want to be sure of my next step. The spec sheet says you can have  (2) 2.5” SATA drives, but underneath that it say:


2.5” SATA 7200 RPM
Up to (2) 1TB 7200 RPM 


which implies each 7200 RPM drive is limited to 1TB capacity. Dell sort of confirmed that but said it was for "optimum performance" and that pretty much any drive that fit in the slot would work subject to driver and OS limitations. Hence my confusion.
I was planning to add a 2TB 5400 RPM drive. Also, I am assuming I need a 9.5mm height drive. Would that work? Not work? Work but have issues? Please clarify.
Thank you.

Newbie here. I have a 256 SSD drive and am thinking about adding a hard drive. I've looked at online videos and it seems easy when the second slot is right there in front of you. But I opened the 3420 today and am confused by what I see. The SSD is sitting on top. I assume the second slot is underneath it. Exactly how does one get to it - there's not enough room in front to simply slide the new hard drive in. The manual only deals with removing and installing the one hard drive. Do you remove the whole drive assembly?
Any hints or links to videos would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have recently purchased an MSI KM3M-V socket A mobo which I have substituted in my eMachines W2260. The mobo was brand new albeit some 3 years old.

I have tried two brand new PSU's on the mobo; one an Antec 350W and the other a Dynapower 500w, but neither of them will give me a video signal although they power up the HDD's, Floppy Drive, CPU & Fan.

Out of curiosity I used the my old eMachines PSU, a Bestec 250w (not a wise move I'm aware), but that works just fine to the extent that I am using it to write this.

My computer is around 4 years old and I am of the opinion that the PSU form factor must have changed over that time or is there something else I am overlooking here?

Can anyone figure out what the problem is as I find it very difficult to believe that both brand new PSU's are DOA?

is uATX form factor the same as mATX (micro atx)?
 

A:What is uATX form factor?

microATX/SFX/uATX Form Factor - Computer manufacturers continue to want to shrink the size of their systems, and Intel has been happy to oblige, with another variant on the basic ATX theme called "microATX". As the name implies, microATX is not only smaller still than Mini ATX, it is actually smaller than even NLX. microATX is intended for the very low end market that Intel has decided to target with force.
Technically, it could be said that microATX is not even really a case form factor, because microATX is in fact a motherboard standard. However, with the smaller microATX motherboards, manufacturers are creating smaller cases to fit. To complement microATX, Intel created a new, low-output power supply design called SFX. SFX power supplies are designed to work with not only microATX systems, but also NLX and regular ATX systems, and this is why these power supplies were not called microATX. SFX and microATX are sometimes used interchangeably, or together, in describing this general physical format. The term uATX may also be used to refer to microATX form factor.

Hi all,

When it comes to form factor. would you recommend ATX or micro ATX. I was thinking of going for micro ATX just becuase of size. Is one better than the other. is ATX is better for future upgrading? if so then i would go for that but if theres no difference then......?

Damien
 

A:Help choosing a form factor?

I think that the only difference is essentially the size. Often, I think, Micro ATX boards are more entry-level, whereas most enthusiast/gaming motherboards are regular ATX. But if you find a Micro ATX mobo that has all the features you need, and you like the small size, go for it. Just make sure your case can support it, but I think most or all regular ATX cases will also support Micro ATX.

How can I determine what the form factor of my motherboard is? I want to upgrade the power supply to 350W or more to accomodate a new video card which requires that minimum level of ummph.
 

A:What is the form factor of my mother board?

Is the Motherboard Square or is it a rectangle shape? More Square usually = Micro ATX. More of a rectangle shape = ATX. By the Way the motherboard form factor would really have nothing to do with the Power Supply you select. Unless it is a BTX (Small Form Factor for slimline computers) motherboard, you would have to find a Power Supply to fit the slim line case.

If it is one of the ATX form factor, then you should actually be looking towards a quality manufacturer 550W or better power supply.

I put Windows 7 on, just for the heck of it. But surprisingly it ran very well. I can't do very much as I can't find a graphics driver for it. So everything is 640x, very large. I searched all over, even went to their web site. Their graphics drivers only go up to XP, not even Vista.

Is there someone out there who can find a graphics driver that will work? I was experimenting putting Photoshop CS 2 on, and the little Compaq couldn't even load it with XP. With Windows 7, Photoshop CS4 not only was able to open but ran normally. Not slow at all. Course I didn't do anything challenging, just normal adjustments. But still I was really impressed. I just can't use this computer unless I can find a driver for the graphics so I can change the resolution. It has the integrated type.

I had one of these in the past. From what I remember the small form factor still had 1 or two expansion slots. WIthout knowing the exact model of EN have you looked at a separate graphics card ... you may need to find an ISA compatible card but that should make finding drivers easier.

What exact type and form factor is the main storage in the C730 N2840 32GB 4GB 30cm Chromebook? It's the 11.6 in the antiquated units.Some resellers state it is an SSD, others state it is an eMMC.The latter isn't much use to me.The Acer site doesn't state.  Means I'm kind of screwed if I open it up to find out it has an eMMC.

Looking for possible upgrades for my Hp Compaq DC5800 small form factor. I already know what can be done ot these computers is limited. If anyone knows if a regular mobo wil work in it in place of the L shaped one that's in it. I been looking for days on end for upgrades i can do  to the board that's in it like changing out the core 2 duo processor for the core 2 quad or better if there is one. I'd also like to put a decent graphics card in it that wn't over power the seemingly unchangable power supply. I also know i could buy a different shell and build a computer but i like this one's size and the fact it lays flat instead of standing up blocking my window. Any upgrades that can be suggested would be greatly appreciated. Here's some info on what it came with inside it i have only upgraded to 5gb of ram it couldn't handle 6gb the bios needs to be upgraded for that and i have no idea how to do it.  Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.150113-1808)Language: English (Regional Setting: English)System Manufacturer: Hewlett-PackardSystem Model: HP Compaq dc5800 Small Form FactorBIOS: Default System BIOSProcessor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7400 @ 2.80GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.8GHzMemory: 5120MB RAMAvailable OS Memory: 5040MB RAMPage File: 1927MB used, 8149MB availableWindows Dir: C:\WindowsDirectX Version: DirectX 11DX Setup Parameters: Not foundUser DPI Setting: Using System DPISystem DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 pe...

I wiped out my HP and reinstalled WinXPSP3. No drivers, went to HP's website http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...=447279&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1093#120
Downloaded and installed all the Network drivers, my device manager still reads yellow exclamation mark on Ethernet controller. How do I find the correct drivers for the controller?

Merry Christmas

I take it that you didn't have the Factory Restore Capability available to you? This would have reloaded all the correct drivers for you. Although it would have also loaded all the Crapware that HP/Compaq bloats a computer with. You rally did not need to download all the network drivers. You would need to identify which Network Adapter your computer uses then install only the driver for that one.
