Notes From the Field

  • We've noticed that one or two Dell Optiplex 760 small form factor computers have reported an error via this LED pattern:
    1-3-4 (where LEDs 1, 3 and 4 are lit during Windows startup - at the Windows logo). Reseating the graphics card (if it's discrete) has resolved the issue.
