Ok, I have a dell optiplex gx280 sff. It has a Y6281 motherboard and 6 leaky caps. I am replacing the board with a refurbished one with the same model #. How do i get the service tag for that board? and is there any bigger power supplies that is compatible with my set up, like a 210w?

Thanx in advance,

The service tags for dells hardware, is usually a white sticker, though you can also use the service tag for the system, which is either on the side of the case, or on the back of it. as for the power supplies, most likely not, considering its a Small Form Factor, but look at the size & shape of it and head on newegg to find if there is an upgrade available.

I know where the service tag is on the case but if im using a mobo thats a replacement would it still be the same as the old mobo or would it have a different service tag?

most likely the same, if its for the same model, you would need to talk to dell about it for more info, as they know specifically how it works.
