i replaced all of my computer components from my broken case to other case

Q: i replaced all of my computer components from my broken case to other case

hi all ,

i have a desktop

i changed my broken case to a new case like

i removed the HDD and the motherboard and the CD-rom ..etc and installed them to a new case

but when i press the switch button it works normally , and the screen display normally and there are no beeps , but after like 20 second my computer turns off automatically ! ,

what may cause this issue ?

A: i replaced all of my computer components from my broken case to other case

could be overheating CPU. Did you apply fresh Thermal paste to the HSF after reinstalling the motherboard? Is it tight and secure? Did you blow out all the dirt, dust and debris from the fans' fins?

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270. When I press the power button, the power button light turns amber, I hear some fans spinning, and the CD drive spinning. However, it never gets to the boot screen (or any screen). If I open the case and press the power button, however, the power button turns green and the computer works fine (loads all the way up and functions like normal). If I close the case after it has started, it continues to run fine. I'm guessing / hoping it's not the mother board or power supply that has directly gone bad... but maybe there is a connection or something? that changes from when it's closed to when it's open. I've heard of something like... the motherboard is shorting out by touching the case... but I'm not really sure where to look for that / how. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

I don't think I have any overheating issues just yet but I was curious if anyone had some ideas on the most effective ways to cool a BTX case. Case temp is around 50 C and CPU is mid 50's when idle. Room is about room temp, 70 F or so. When doing something intense the it all creeps about about 5 degrees C to the point where the case is around 55, CPU around 60-61. These numbers according to Speedfan.

Again, I've had no problems thus far and I don't think these temps are unreasonable. But I was curious as to what my cooling options are. I was thinking the quickest, cheapest, and probably least effective way to go was to put a fan in the empty PCI slot...at least until I need that slot. But it seems that most PCI fans are not made for a BTX case as they point in the wrong direction. Also, this particular setup is somewhat unique as there is a plastic duct running directly from the intake fan to the CPU, making alternative CPU cooling somewhat tricky.

Thoughts?
 

A:Cooling Components in BTX Case

see if there is a place at the front of the case , in front of the hard drive cage, to add another fan..I put 120 MM fans there...blowing into the case... so they can blow cool air over the hard drives an aid the other case fans blowing out of the case...works good and the 120MM fans are quieter than the 80 mm fans

Hi, so i am in possesion of an hp desktop (here is the product page, http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c03635837) and i was planning on buying a new case, a new GPU (msi gtx 1060) and a new Psu (to support my new gpu. Now in order for me to add all of this stuff i think it would be ideal to transfer all of my components to a new case. I am familiar with how to do this, i just wanted to know if this will all work nice and smoothly or if i need to know a few things first or even if it will not work at all. Thank you.

A:Moving my pc into new case and upgrading components

JablesTheGreat Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I've done this a few times -- but not with this model PC -- so I can only offer general comments ... 1) I/O shield -- this is the small plate that covers the external sockets at the back of the case.  These are generally a standard size, so if the new case has the same size opening, you can simply move the shield to the new case. 2) USB ports -- these have standard MoBo connectors, so as long as the ports in the new case are the same generation as the old case (i.e., USB 2.0 vs USB 3.0), you should be able to reconnect the USB ports without problems. 3) Memory card readers -- this is more problematic.  Every HP PC I've owned has had memory card readers and the connectors are anything but standard. In addition, the readers themselves are designed to fit into each special case, so they're not "bolt-ons" that can simply be reattached to a different case.  If this is the situation with yours, you would have to suffice with USB-based memory card readers for the new case. Good Luck

I am starting to get concerned about my new Dell Dimension 8400 getting hot, doesn't seem to be much in the way of airflow. The whole Intel processor is all new to me...usually an AMD chick, but I got a good deal. Anyway...would it void my warrantee if I put mobo, dvd, & HDD etc. into a different case with more fans to improve airflow? Has anyone else done this? Just curious.

I moved my CPU (AMD 939 4800+x2), RAM (2*1gb Nspire), and Video Card (7950gt EVGA) from my shuttle ST20G5 which had a bad RAM slot to an Ultra Microfly case with EVGA NF44 AMD motherboard. When I turn on the computer, it beeps once (tells I passed POST) and takes me to BIOS. Then I select XP Pro from my boot menu, the XP load screen is displayed for a few seconds, and then I get a STOP error. One weird part is that when I enter BIOS, it shows up as Pheonix AWARD BIOS, just like in my shuttle, not the EVGA version of BIOS, even though it shows the EVGA splash screen upon boot. I am using the same HD in hopes to preserve all my data... not sure if that is a problem? Please feel free to ask questions and please help... I am stuck on an old laptop with none of my documents... I know because it passes POST that I couldn't have messed anything up too bad when I moved everything

I rebuilt by installing all hardware in a new Coolermaster haf 930 full size tower. Everything seemed fine on bootup but, I noticed the drivers, were installing I think, for the ssd and dvd/cd. it booted back up and restarted just fine all day yesterday. When I got up this morning, I turned it on and it got to the welcome screen with small spinning circle next to it but, stayed there a lot longer than usual. Next, it went to a plain blue screen and stayed there for 10-15 seconds then all icons popped on the monitor as usual and everything worked fine after that till I shut down or restart then it's the same thing all over again. All help will be greatly appreciated Thanks!

A:strange bootup after installing components in new PC case

Re-check all your connections. It sounds like something that was previously connected is not now.

Also: are you using the same power supply as before? Or is it a new supply that came with the case?
If a new supply, what are the specs on both (old and new).

I'm not too tech proficient, but I'm getting better, and decided to tackle my biggest challenge so far.

I took everything out of a Gateway PC, replaced the PSU and put everything back into a new full tower case.

Everything works great except the audio. Here is the problem and details:

I only have an onboard audio card. The new case has a headphone jack on the front that connects to the "audio" pin connection on the bottom of the motherboard. I connected this.

After reassembling, the audio jack on the rear of the case on the motherboard I/O panel does not produce sound. HOWEVER, the headphone jack on the front DOES produce sound.

I'm a little puzzled because that would seem to imply the motherboard is fine.

Does the I/0 panel audio ports run off of dedicated power, or a specific power cord that I might have placed in the wrong place or backwards?

Any other ideas?


Followup question. THere is something wrong with the front headphone jack (maybe a manufacturer defect) that is causing the left speaker to crackle and be less loud. almost like a bad speaker, but I tested for that.

In the case I took everything out of there was a single AUDIO pin connection from the front panel to the motherboard. But on the new case the AUDIO pin connection had an additional identically sized pin connection coming off of it about 1" from the AUDIO pin connection. It had some numbers on it like a voltage rating or something (unsure).. I just ... Read more

A:Onboard audio problems after moving components to new case

Hi, If you replaced all the cables as they were then you should have no trouble.
The front panels are in 2 groups. The USB sockets are 1 group with a cable that runs over to the motherboard.
The front panel audio board has 2 cables that run from it to a single free socket, and that plugs onto a connector on the motherboard that has 5 pins in one row and 4 pins on the other row, with one pin empty.
But I would think it's more likely the problem is the settings in Windows.
Right click on the speaker icon in the taskbar, choose 'playback devices', and if your speakers are plugged into the back of the pc, you should see them in the list. They should have a green tick over the speakers.
If not, right click on the speaker line, and choose 'enable', that should put the sound signals onto the socket where your external speakers are connected to.
* Might also be worth testing that your external speakers are working by plugging them into something you know works, such as a mp3 player, mobile, or tape player output. It's possible the speakers are not getting power. (Power LED on one speaker).
*Also check for muted audio in Windows, and the 'on/vol' control on the actual speakers.

Hello world,
I'm looking to considerably upgrade my current system, which will become essentially a new system overall.

I was looking into something along these lines:
[Key: Currently Own | Looking To Buy]
Motherboard- Asus Sabertooth Z77.
CPU- Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4Ghz s1155 6MB.
Cooling- Corsair Hydro H100i.
RAM- Kingston HyperX Beast 2x8GB DDR3 1600MHz (x2= a total of 32GB).
GPU- GeForce GTX 460 (768MB).
PSU- Corsair GS600 80PLUS. (is it enough?)
HDD/SSD- *.*
Monitor- *.*
Peripherals- *.*
Case- Open for suggestions!

The rest is less of an issue.

What do you guys think?

I have an Acer Aspire X1700 (Details
It's about 2 1/2 years old now. Came with Windows Vista, I upgraded it to Windows 7. Also has a newer video card than what came with it.

Anyway, The PSU fan is getting really obnoxious, it gets really loud (more or less like a lawn mower). I have taken the thing apart and have tried every suggestion given to quiet it down, which it does for a whole week or two. This is a small form factor PC, so to even take the power supply out you have to basically take out everything else just to get to it. I have looked for replacements but they are very obsolete. It's only 220W anyway, so i'd like something a little more powerful.

What I want to do is get a larger case that I can use the same hardware is (motherboard, drives, etc) and purchase a larger power supply for that case. 220W really limits the PC. The small case holds a lot of heat even with all fans cleaned and working properly. Even just taking a CD/DVD out that was in it is very hot. I want a case with better airflow than this one.
I really am not sure what kind of case to get that will meet my needs. I don't want anything really fancy. If possible I'd like to get it off newegg.com

Any suggestions would be great.

Now the top USB Port is missing the white protector. The bottom one seems fine but both were bent... now none of them work.


Could anyone give me any information on what to do or ways i could try to see if it works (excluding taking it in for repair)?

Now another question comes up regarding modifying the cooling of my case/ computer etc.

I was wanting to carve two 3 1/2" holes in the top of my case, for two 12cm fans. Now I know fully how to do this, however, I was wondering which direction the air flow should go. Should the fans blow into my case? (Like I suspect) Or should I have them blow out?

The orange highlights are the fans I wish to add. Which direction should I have the air flow setup?
 

A:Case airflow question before modifying case

I would have them sucking air out. Hot air rises, and the side panel fan will hit the VGA's mb, etc and spread out, also they are right next to the PSU. You wont have any really big difference either in or out , but I would have those two pulling the hot air that manages to make it to the top of the case out. and negative pressure tend to run a bit cooler overall.

One of the screws that holds my HP Envy 17 - j013cl laptop casing together no longer attaches to anything. It appears that the screw was once attached to a plastic fitting, but now that fitting is broken and the pieces of plastic are loose inside the laptop. When I open the laptop, the casing pulls apart near the hinge. I purchased the factory refurbished laptop in January of this year. How can the laptop be repaired? One source told me that they would have to replace the entire cover ... IF they could find one.  Is this repair covered under warranty? I just found a topic for the same issue with the dv7 "dv7 Left hinge pulling case apart? What the heck!".  It appears that HP have some real widespread problems with the left hinge of their laptop casings!

I have a computer case where the on/off switch doesn't work when plugged into the motherboard. The computer is fine, I can jump the board but I need to resolve the issue with the on/off switch. it's just a PII case, no real thrills. The pins to the motherboard consist of (2) wires to the on/off switch, but the pin is (3) prong with a dummy in the middle. If you have any suggestions or need more info I'm online and watching? Thanks
 

A:Computer Case

Hi bturner
If you have the right tools you can sometimes get the pins to release from the connector and move them next to each other. If you can't get that to work you could use an exacto knife ( or sharp raser blade) and split the connector down the dummy pin. Then connect each pin separately to the motherboard connector.

Hi,

I have the following components in my PC:

GT 520 gpu
Intel i5 661 CPU
Gigabyte H55m-D2H motherboard (this is a small one, I believe it's micro ATX)
Two sticks of 4GB of RAM
ESI Juli@ audio card

I'm gonna stick with this build for a while (in fact, I don't see myself upgrading anytime soon - it runs great).

My case is big and makes a lot of noise (the fan is old...). I need a new one, and I wonder what compact cases are available for my setup. As you can see above, I do not use a gaming GPU, so I can probably make do with a thin case. The audio card isn't exactly tiny, though.

I'd appreciate any recommendations!

Thanks.

It's a P4-1.7, DVD, CD, Nvidia GeForce FX 5600, Sound Blaster Audigy 2. The thing is, when I power the computer up I get no picture on my screen, so I'm wondering if it just has to do with the screen or the computer is just powering up and not actually turning on.

Looking for suggestions for a cheap case (cheaper the better).

Must have:
front and back 120mm fan spots (doesn't need to come with fan)
at least 5x 5.25" external bays
at least 1x 3.5" external bay
Fits ATX spec

On a budget, so the cheaper the better. I'm just replacing the case, so it doesn't need to have anything in it (PSU, fans, etc), but must be able to put them there obviously. I don't have brand preferences. Name as many as you can, since it might be a problem getting them where I am...

Hey everyone! It's jsut a quick post, but I recently finished a brand new computer build, but I am worried my case doesn't supply enough cooling, but also don't like the nosie it produces during gaming, so I am wondering if anyone knows of any good cases under £50/$60. I have looked at the powercool dominator and am wondering if it will be enough (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Powercool-D...9?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1362519059&sr=1-109).

My build is as follows:
- AMD 8350 CPU with stock heat sink/fan
- Gigabyte 7950 triple fan graphics card
- 16GB RAM
- SSD & Hard Drive (not performance, but more energy saving)
- CIT basic case modded with an additional fan on the side
- ASUS M5A99X Motherboard
- 880w PSU

Thank you for any advice! It will need to have high cooling abilities, but also quite quiet!
 

A:Computer case for $60?

- Noise from case is 95% the fault of the fans. More expensive cases provide quieter fans, but you're paying a lot more to start with anyway. Plus, you'll have to provide your own additional fans in most cases (pun not intended) anyway.
- PSU fan could be loud..?
- Cooling performance is a combination of how neat your build is (cables etc), the amount of components, the type of cooling on your devices, fans used, and airflow provided by case. This is a lot of variables, so it can be hard.
- The case you linked is a budget case. Don't expect miracles.

- My suggestion - stick with what you have, tweak the fan speeds a bit.

It should work. Depending on the type of plastic you may have static electricity so be careful. It would probably run equally as well in a cardboard box. Honestly though, why not just buy an inexpensive case? Even the cheapest case would be better than a plastic bin or a cardboard box.

Hey guys,

This is my first post, so I will try to make this as good as possible! I just built my own computer which consists of a Gigabyte P35C-DS3R motherboard, Intel Core 2 Duo 6850 Conroe (3.0Ghz 1333 FSB) 500 watt UltraXfinity power supply dual 12V rails, Ballistix ram sticks for 2GB ddr2, Seagate 250GB Sata, and Foxconn Nvidia 8800 GTX card. Both me and my friend built this computer (he is more knowledgeable so he did most of the work while I learned). We assembled everything properly and attached it to the case, plugged in every wire nescessary and it didn't boot. We double and triple checked to make sure that all the basic wires were attached properly (trust me, we really checked stuff!) and it still didn't boot, so he decided to unhook everything except for the motherboard and its power supply cable and he tried to jump the Power button leads with a screwdriver to hot wire it and it didn't turn on. At this point, we figured we had a motherboard failure, but we took it out of the case and plugged it in and it fired up right away. In fact, I am typing this message right now and it is all assembled outside of the case and it is working great! I played some games with it and it also ran fine and Power supply unit is giving enough voltage/current/wattage for everything so that isn't the problem.

I have been searching for a tower case to either build or have built, a new computer.

So far, it looks like a Chemming tower would be a good choice but in the reviews, I see people saying that you need very long SATA and IDE cables. They mention 36" cables. It seems like that is a pretty long cable to be using so I thought it might be good to ask for some opinions on these cases and that cable length.

Thanks

I think 36 inch cables would be for server towers, if you are buying an ATX case then stardard length cables should be ok.

I have this older computer case meant for a Duron process but I have been trying to adapt it to this Palamino processer with a MSI motherboard. I cannot seem to get the air flow right. I have been reading about it. I keep getting the blue screen when I close the sides of of my computer case. I have a fan in the front, air coming in and a fan in the back, air going out. But that wasn't not enough , so I cut a hole in the side and put a 92mm fan there. I'm thinking of putting this larger 120mm fan and cut a bigger hole. I have the air going in on the sides but the case still seems to get hot, causing system instability. As long as I have the sides open, I don't have any blue screen and not any problems. I'm thinking maybe I should have the air flowing out on the sides. Any ideas?

PICS IN PAGE 2


Okay, I have decided that my next computer is going to be a mini-ITX. Ever since PC makers decided to embed a LAN card and sound card onto a motherboard, and put in a graphics card slot into a wee 'lil motherboard, I don't really need anything bigger.

Anyway, I set out looking to BUY a mini-ITX case, but kinda came up short. They are really REALLY small... Most of them don't even use ATX spec components. Slim optical drives, slim heatsinks, flex-ATX PSU....

So I decided to build my own mini-ITX case. Gonna be an Aluminum frame, and aluminum/fibreglass cover and front. Fibreglass because its much easier to work with (IMO), and doesn't cost a bomb (like carbon fibre).

My list of spec:
1. Fit a mini-ITX board.
2. Fit a full, tower size CPU cooler. For overclocking, and quiet operation. (which is why I started the Venomous X thread)
3. Fit full ATX sized PSU. I've set the length of this PSU to 14cm, which is the length of my current 650W Antec PSU.
4. Fit my current graphics card (GTX 260). From my proposed layout and calculations, I should be able to fit something a few cms longer.
5. Fit 2x 3.5" HDDs.
6. Fit 1x 5.25" Optical drive.
7. Fit a 120mm exhaust fan or bigger.


I did some calculations, designed a layout by researching what works and what doesn't, and came up with this sized box (excluding the front bezel): 230x200x340mm.

That seems to be the smallest I can make it to fit everythin... Read more

http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af75/uniquepower/IMG_3256-1.jpg

If you are building an aluminum frame, I recommend using right angle pieces. They are very easy to work with, and very strong and light when you are done. Also, remember when you are making the cardboard replicas to leave space for the cables. In a cramped environment, they take up a lot more space than you might think.

Here is the worklog for an ITX HTPC I am building right now. It does not meet your specifications, but it does use a full ATX PSU, and it might be helpful for ideas, and for working with the aluminum.

I know that I haven't done anything to it, so could any of you possibly know about this?

hello everyone. im looking into buying a new case for my computer. i currently have the stock case that came with my sony vaio pcv rx860. I was looking to get one of the more custom cases ive seen on the web. my main concerns are if the vaio components will be easily transferable to whichever custom case i end up choosing. as well , are there certain types of cases i need to stay away from or that i should look at specifically ? ive never changed the case on a computer before and the vaio i have has a very interesting way of opening up. is there a site or set of specifications i should follow before choosing my custom case ? thanks.

Thanks in advance.

A:Need help buying PSU & Case for computer

Your system specs are most important, it lets us know how much wattage you'll need to sufficiently power your rig and also the motherboard model will help us determine what size case you'll be needing as well. Once that is all posted, we can continue on to recommendations.

Can both side covers ff a computer case be removed? I can remove one of the covers dead easy just by removing the two screw at the back. But When I come to remove the other side, i cant get it off with just removing the two back screws. The reason I want to get it off is beacuse there is a screw with the bottom pointing up into the case. I think the head of the screw is underneath the case cover i cant get off. Any help would be nice and I would be grateful. Thanx

Aloha,
What is the difference between a OEM and Retail case? TIA

Mahalo,

A:Computer Case Question

OEM means Original Equipment Manufacturer. They are produced for a middleman to use building his machines to seel to the public.

Anything OEM generally has a shorter warranty, no documentation and few extras. For example, an OEM harddrive does not come with cables or install software. You get a drive, thats it. For an OEM case, you may or may not get a powersupply for example.
Retail on the other hand, gives you the full manf warranty, documentation and any extras there may be.
Unless OEM is significantly cheaper, I usually get the Retail version.

I'm going to buy a new computer case so that I can customize it etc. I want to put a window in the side panel, so I'm wanting someone to recommend the best way to go about it. (cutting etc)
That's it.
 

A:Customized Computer Case

I'm not personally too familiar with customizing cases, but I know if you do a web search for "case mod" or "case mods" you can usually turn up some pretty good information.

Also, I know alot of companies carry items to mod your case with like neon strips and such, and alot of times they have FAQ's right on their websites.

I decided today to change my PC case, which I have done previously witout a hitch. However, today I bought a evil looking Demon ATX Computer Case and I can't figure out where to put the front panel wires. They are all marked oddly with "Data +1, Data -1, Gnd 1, VCC 1, etc. How do I know where they go? My motherboard book (GA-8IPE1000) does not make it very clear what I have to do to get anything to work. Any help would be appreciated. I have gone to Gigabytes homepage but really gleaned nothing there. I can't find a home page or manufacturer for the case. Thanks very much

I read about this case by Zalman that is totally silent, but keeps the system cool.
It looks really neat to me, but it got me wondering what the best case out there is.
Of course, this is subjective, I know.

Criterion, in order of importance:

1. It keeps the system nice and cool
2. Itís quiet
3. It doesnít involve any water pumps or coolent
4. Itís nice-looking

Whatís your fave?

Hello. This may sound like a very stupid question, but I just got this computer for a great deal but the guy forgot to give me the key so I can't open it to upgrade it. Is there a simple way to pick the lock or perhaps a universal tool I can buy? From what I know, only the really old computers required keys, but I guess I was wrong. I tried to look this up on google, but once I typed in the word "key" into any sentence, all I got was threads about how to crack programs and stuff.

Hello All,
I have (unfortunately) an Acer Aspire X3910 desktop computer.
I have had it 6 months and it been in for repairs three times already.
One of the main problems I'm having with it is that the case is very small.
And the inside gets very hot Acer has hat to replace the computer once
and change the hard drive twice.
I was advised that I should change the case. However I don't know the
form factor that I need to buy. The information that Acer states is that its
a "Small Form Factor" but when I try to look for it I can't find that form
factor. Could someone tell me what form factors I can use and if possible
recommend a case.
Attached are images of the case I have and other information.

Any Help Will Be Appreciated

A:Need Help Choosing a Computer case

If the case is SFF, you don't want another one of those, since that is the root cause of your overheating. Any standard ATX case will fit your motherboard. However, your current PSU might not fit, so you will need a new PSU.

Your attachments provide no useful info. Provide a link that shows the inside of the computer.
