Q: SD Card Reader for OptiPlex 3040?

Hello,I have dell OptiPlex 3040 Mini Tower. In the owner’s manual it shows that there is on option for SD Card Reader that can be installed in this computer, but I am unable to find any information about it – part number, link, specs or anything else about this card reader on Dell’s website. I would like to purchase and install one in my computer, but I cannot figure out how to order this part or accessory. Any help or suggestion would be much appreciated.Thanks

Preferred Solution: SD Card Reader for OptiPlex 3040?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have a Dell OptiPlex 3040 with an AMD Radeon R7 350X video card. This is connected to a daisy-chained set of Dell U2417H monitors. I previously had this configuration setup on my Inspiron laptop and never had an issue.
On the OptiPlex, the monitor screens flicker intermittently, and at least once a day both monitors go black and I have to do a hard reset on the PC in order to get it fully functional again. I've updated the video card drivers, swapped out the cables on each monitor, and updated every driver on my PC. Considering the fact that this configuration didn't cause any issues on my Inspiron, I want to say that this has to be a VC issue. These PC is a few months old and under a three year warranty plan. Any help or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!


A:Video Card Crashing on OptiPlex 3040

Hello!  A couple of things come to mind.  Did you update the BIOS at all?  What version of Windows are you running?  Did you get the drivers from Dell's support site or from AMD?  If not AMD I would go there and see if you can run their drivers, the crimson edition. Also did you set up multimonitor support in the Catalyst control panel?  AMD can be a bit finicky.

Hello -
We recently received a new batch of OptiPlex 3040s with AMD Radeon R5 340x video drivers. We had been imaging these computers just fine for over 6 months and now with this new batch, they are Bitlockering if you try to use 3 monitors (2 in the card and one in the builtin). Here are some facts:
* We use SCCM 2012 image and are enabling Bitlocker within the task sequence. Use PCRs (0,4,8,9,10,11)
* Currently imaging Windows 10 (1511).
* Using CAB Driver version: A06
Please help!! 
Let me know what other information I can provide.
Thank you!

I have purchased 14 Optiplex 3040 with a card adapter to obtain 2 additional serial ports (Startech PEX2S553). This card is working with 128 bytes FIFO and my banking periphals can´t establish communication with the optiplex pc. Is it possible limit to 16 bytes fifo like other cards ??

I have a Dell Optiplex 380 SFF that I've been wanting to upgrade. The floppy bay is empty, and floppy diskettes are obsolete now. I want to install a card reader, (SD Card, Memory Stick, Flash, etc.)
Is there a way to install one in the floppy bay?

A:(Dell Optiplex 380) Is it possible to install a card reader?

The bigger question is whether there's a connector on the motherboard where you can connect an internal card reader.  Most card readers use an (internal) USB connector but I don't see a USB header on the motherboard diagram for the 380 SFF.

Would you  be better off just getting an external, portable  USB card reader? They're not expensive.

in the past with the optiplex 3020 I was able to connect a VGA monitor even thru the DP, by getting a $10 converter from DP to VGA.
in the 3040 model, they dont work. not a DP-VGA nor does the HDMI-VGA work.
Is there any way for me to get my VGA monitor to work on the 3040 computer? Even just one monitor would help. Or would I have to buy a new monitor with digital connection??


A:Optiplex 3040 with VGA

What form factor 3040, mini-tower, small form or micro form?
Do you have an add-in video card or only onboard Intel video?  A VGA port was extra-cost option on the 3040.
Have you checked BIOS setup to make sure the video output is set to Auto?

My wife has an Optiplex 380 - the middle sized one out of the three models, whatever that's called...
I want to fit an internal card reader in the bay that was (I assume) originally for a 3.5" floppy drive. I have a card reader; I have a USB card to give me the required pin header inside the case (I can't find one on the motherboard). I can link this all up and it works.
However I can't figure out how to mechanically fix the reader in position. The HDD and DVD drive have plastic caddies, but despite searching the Internet I can't find out what's needed to hold a floppy drive. I have yet to find a photo of an Optiplex 380 with a floppy drive, so maybe that option was never made available.
If such a thing exists, I'd be grateful for any pointers to where I could buy one.

A:Optiplex 380: fitting a card reader in the floppy drive bay

This option did exist as it also existed with the 980.  You have to remove the DVD and use ODD Card Reader HDD Caddy NR95F with GV721 and 1YMGT.  The issue with this is it requires a special power cable for the DVD as its using a laptop Size DVD in place of the 5.25 inch DVD Drive.
 This one seems to have all the wires except sata data cable for the DVD
GV721 is the Reader
NR95F is the Bracket
1YMGT is the DVD Drive to sata Power Cable
Not sure what the special power and Sata cable is for the dvd or the Cable for the FLEX BAY connection. It might be FH439 or GH005 but im not sure.
Dell Alienware Aurora FlexBay Card Reader Media Housing Carrier Assembly C439M would also work but remove the DVD.

I've disconnected default SSD (Samsung) in order to connect new emty SSD (Transcend). I was in need to clone my laptop's HDD on this new SSD as a transit SATA port, because I've got only one SATA to USB connector, used by laptop's drive. I've successfully cloned my drives, disconnected all new drives, connected default SSD (samsung) and - no OS boot. I've not changed ANY BIOS settings.
Ok. I've a look on BIOS settings, and I see NEW (almost disconnected) SSD (Transcend) as bootable device. And NO Samsung SSD in boot device. Only Transcend which is no more connecned to motherboard. In SATA I see only Samsung SSD connecned, but I don't see it in BOOT section. 
I've restored to factory and than to default settings with no effect. Than I've cleared CMOS - no effect. I see disconnected SSD device in BIOS BOOT section. What I'm doing wrong?

A:Dell Optiplex 3040 SFF

I've changed firmware of my BIOS. Downgraded it up ti 1.2.3 version, than upgraded it again. No effect. Old SSD doesn't appear. BUT in Legacy boot disconnected drive is still present. I cannot delete it. cannot change it to connected SSD drive. I guess it's somewhere in Legacy Option ROMS, and must be changed - but there are no options in this BIOS section. I'm gonna hate UEFI

So I recently got a Dell Optiplex 3040 SFF for a good deal. It came with an i5 6500, 1TB HDD and a Single Stick of 8GB DDR3L. I've been reading the specs for the Optiplex 3000 series and they just came with an i5. I was just wondering if it's ok to replace the CPU with an i7 6700 non K, since i have one just lying around. I'm also planning on adding a low profile GTX 1050Ti (Msi probably) Will the 180W PSU that came with the computer support those upgrades?

First I want to re-emphasize just how bad Dell support is. I went through something similar with an Optiplex 3020 32-bit video driver for Windows 10. Dell doesn't care about problems. They just wanted a credit card. Here we are again....
There is a problem with the Optiplex 3040 and SSD drives. I have four of them out in the field that will, on occasion, reboot for some reason (has to have something to do with the SSD) and when they reboot it immediately goes in to diagnostics and says there is no hard drive present. The fix is simple. Turn it off and turn it back on and it boots fine but there is obviously some conflict with the Optiplex 3040 and SSD drives.
So... I get in chat with Dell and guess what? They don't care. It isn't their problem. They would be interested if I gave them my credit card info. So I took it a step farther and asked is there was some kind if database with reported issues by model. I was told no! You got to be kidding! Dell gets reports of problems and they don't document it or take it serious???? What a jaw dropper. I know Dell support was horrid, always has been, but this goes beyond horrid!
So Dell is obviously clueless. Any users have issues with the Dell Optiplex 3040 and SSD drives like I am having?

I would like to replace the PSU on the 3040 MT with an EXTERNAL aftermarket unit. First, I need more power to run a better GPU and multiple drives. Second, I prefer the heat outside the case anyway. I am using the Moddiy 24-pin to 8-pin Dell Mobo adapter cable.
Someone said that the Antec EarthWatts EA-380D Green would NOT power on my computer (actually they said the EarthWatts series would not work) though they failed to elaborate in any way as to why.  
According to the specs I can find, there is no reason why it should not work provided the cables are run correctly.
Is there anyone here that can expand on WHY or the EarthWatts series will not work? If it does not work, can someone please recommend a PSU of 400 watts more or less that WILL work. Again, provided the cables are taken care of.
Thanks very much!

Hi All,
I'm just curious what the maximum number of displays is for this model.  I've only got the Intel 530 Graphics no extra AMD or NVidia card.
The reason I'm asking, is I'd like to add one or two USB video adapters, and want to be sure that the 3040 can actually support the additional displays.
From the Features and Design page:"Support for two displays: DisplayPort, HDMI and optional VGA connectivity allows greater visibility of your tasks. "
But I think that's is just referring to the built in video outputs.

We have a number of receipt printers that we've been using via serial cable. With some new software in the future, I've been moving them from serial to USB and have had no issues. We did have to order about 8 new PCs and I can't get the receipt printers to work on any of them. The printer vendor hasn't been very helpful so I'm kind of stuck. I'm installing the printers the exact same way but when I power them on, Windows is saying it can't recognize the USB device and it's showing as Unknown Device in Devices and Printers and Device Manager. All of the PCs, new and old, are Windows 7 x64. The only thing that's different with the new ones may be the USB ports. They're Dell Optiplex 3040 Micro computers that have 2 - USB Charge ports | 1 - USB smart power on port | 3 - USB 3.0 ports. I believer our old PCs all have USB 2.0 ports, which may be the problem. Doing some research, it appears that the 3040's use xHCI on the USB ports which sometimes cause issues with legacy drivers. Is there a way to disable xHCI and see if that's the issue?

A:Disabling xHCI on Optiplex 3040

XHCI is XTENSIBLE HOST CONTROLLER INTERFACE aka USB 3.0  You cant disable this unless you don't care if NONE of the USB ports work properly.  There is no such thing as making USB2 drivers work with USB3 ports.  There is also no support for Skylake and 3RD party USB Serial printers and Drivers here on the Dell Site.
Dell makes Special Windows 7 builds for Skylake.  There is NO Downgrade Rights for Home Versions of Windows 10 only the PRO versions.  And Dell is not obligated to provide you with downgrade media.   There is support for windows 7 on newer dells but its not free.

You must install the eXtensible Host Controller Interface drivers for windows 7 as well as the CHIPSET Drivers for windows 7.   Skylake Systems are NOT SUPPORTED with windows 7 by microsoft.
Only WINDOWS 10 is supported.
Otherwise you have to find OLDER Dells and use them.

Please advice if i need to installed any other driver , because so far i just installed those 4 driver. Thank You

A:Keyboard and Mouse not working on New Optiplex 3040 mt

There are 2 chipset drivers for Win 7, 32-bit. Did you install Intel Chipset Device Software and the  Intel Management Engine Interface Driver? (And you also need Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver for the USB3 ports.)
You can try this:

Open Device Manager and expand list under Human Interface Devices
Double-click each entry and look for a Power Management tab
If it has that tab, click it and the uncheck the box "Allow PC to turn off..."
Reboot when done and see if that solves the problem.

If not, check the Windows Power Options settings to see if Windows is turning the ports off.
EDIT: Since these are PS/2 devices, you may have to look for the Power Management tab under Keyboard and under Mice in Device Manager, instead of under Human Interface Devices in Device Manager.

 have recently taken delivery of 150 Dell Optiplex 3040 PC's all with the same specification.
I am trying to image then using MDT.
Before taking delivery of all the PC's I took a sample of 2 to test with to make sure I could create an image and deploy it. This worked without any problem using Litetouch and a defined sequence. Happy days.
I then took delivery of the remaining PC's and tried to apply the same image. However this fails on every PC I have tried apart from the initial 2 samples and it is driving me crazy. PC spec is identical for all PC's and there is only one W10 cab available from Dell that I am using for drivers.
I get a black screen  stating
windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
Status Oxc000001
A required device is not connected or can't be accessed.
This happens as the process seems to be connecting to the Litetouch image so I think it might be a possible NIC issue, even though it does successfully connect to the WDS deployment server.
Any suggestions?

I have just configured an Optiplex 3040 for a customer to run Virtual XP machines for his CNC mills.
I upgraded from windows 7 Professional to Windows 10 64 Bit Pro as the replacement CAD/CAM software he is trialling needs this 64 bit OS.
Apart from a lot of research to find out why I couldn't boot from the Windows 10 DVD media to install Windows 10 (not included in the Dell FAQs) everything runs OK. However there is one niggle in that on boot the Numlock doesn't stay on.
I have checked the bios and the relevant setting in the Post section is ticked and the Numlock LED comes on during Post but then goes off as Windows 10 loads. This is not a big problem but rather annoying as the customer uses the numeric keyboard a lot for data entry of measurements.
Is this a bug in the Dell Bios or is it something to do with UEFI?
Many thanks 

A:Optiplex 3040 - Numlock does not stay on after boot

On some Inspiron models, disabling Fast Startup from inside Windows 10 fixes that problems. So you might try that....

3.Click Power Options.
4.Click Choose what the power buttons do.
5.Click Change settings that are currently unavailable.
6.Scroll down to Shutdown settings and uncheck Turn on fast startup.

I am using MDT 2013.  I've imported the driver pack for the OptiPlex 3040 from Dell for Windows 7 x64.  After MDT installs the OS, it reboots into Windows to begin initialization but it never finishes.  Instead it reboots again and goes into the Dell Diagnostics utility and runs a test on memory. 
After the test runs, it tries to boot into Windows and I end up selecting "last know good config."  It finally loads windows but then none of the USB ports work.  I have to remote into the pc to manually install the USB and chipset drivers to finish the MDT deployment process.  This has happened on multiple machines and is a repeatable process.  Is anyone else having this issue?

All, we have a lot of 150 computers of Dell 3040 and we recently started having issue with them. Their NIC gets disabled on restart. Then we have to goto BIOS and enable the NIC. 
This is the same issue reported with Optiplex 5040.
Can someone please share your thoughts on this.
