GX1: Alert Message & Adding a New Hard Drive and Ram

Discussion in 'Dell' started by Darren Harris, Dec 29, 2003.

  1. I have two Dell GX1's and when booting up Ithe message "Alert! The
    cover has previously been removed".

    Can anyone tell me how to stop that? The BIOS is A.04

    Also, I'd like to add another hard drive and increase the amount of
    ram. Is there anything about these machines that I should know

    Thanks a lot.

    I don't have a GX1 in front of me but I have them at work. But looking at a
    GX260 as a reference, you must first enter the BIOS then look for something
    that says System Security then under the Chassis Intrusion set it to
    Disabled. You may have to go to the other pages in the BIOS to get to that
    option by pressing Alt+P till you find it.

    when you open case look for jumper for the chasis intrusion and open it then
    no worries and also suggest after install complete clear bios with jumper
    and then again when you get into the bios for first run cap lock on number
    lock on scroll lock on and tap the E key while holding alt down it will beep
    then press alt-B to reboot and set bios and you will be good to go.

  4. That was totally confusing.

    Is there a website with the exact step-by-step instructions for doing
    something like this, starting with exactly how to get into the BIOS?
