Not a Big Fan of Optiplex 760 so Far. 0_o

Someone come in here and tell me that I shouldn't be so very angry at this particular computer model. I know computers aren't sentient (yet), but my first interactions with this computer have not been pleasant. Initially it seems that the system can't handle Windows 7 without a BIOS update (machine came refurbished with A02 BIOS, the current version is A13), and so I put together a Vista PE environment to try to update the BIOS, and now it is having issues installing this updated BIOS. I have tried repeatadly with the same error.

Out of vengeance I was able to update the BIOS of a Optiplex 740 with no issue at all. Ugh.

  • I have heard nothing good about the 760's. Also if you are looking at the 990 SFF we had a lot of issues with the first batch having a bad bios that fried the power supplies. - ohiosoundguy 10 years ago

  • We have not had any problems with the 990 towers looks like it is good we passed on the SFF - shigbee 10 years ago
