Computer case and TV Tuner

Q: Computer case and TV Tuner

Hi guys, I'm building a new PC and I was just looking for a case and a tv tuner. I am also accepting advice for other parts. Here is the Computer so far:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
Motherboard: Asus P5QL-EM
Hard Drive 1: Samsung SpinPoint F1 HD103UJ
Hard Drive 2: Samsung SpinPoint F1 HD103UJ
Optical Drive 1: LG GDR-8164B
Optical Drive 2: LG GDR-8164B
Graphics Chip 1: Inno3D GF GTX 280 Overclocked PCI-E 2.0
Graphics Chip 2: Inno3D GF GTX 280 Overclocked PCI-E 2.0
Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion Series
Network Card: Bigfoot Networks Killer NIC K1 Card
Wireless Networking: D-LINK DWA-542 Wireless 802.11 Draft N PCI Adapter 802.11B/G/N
Power Supply Unit: Amacrox Free Style AX1000-EP
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master V8
Operating System: Windows Vista Ultimate x86
Keyboard: Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave
Mouse: Microsoft Wireless Laser 6000
Monitor: Dell 2408WFP
Speakers: Logitech G51

I'd like the case to have good airflow and preferably to stop most noise at a decent price, (definitely no more than $150) and the TV Tuner to have dual receivers and recording abilities.

Thanks in advance

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!

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?

Intervideo TV Tuner Software,TV Capture Card WDM TV Tuner=Headache:

Recently purchased HP dx2000 Desktop and run WinXPHome SP2 and vendor installed a TV tuner card for me. I run a 'no-name brand' AC-powered amplified TV antenna via coax into the TV Card and set up software for 'antenna use'. Ten local TV channels come in 'off-air' for free.

When I exit the Intervideo TV Tuner program my computer crashes, then restarts and 'recovers from a serious error". . .I have pics of error messages.
Four times out of five the Tv Tuner package runs perfect. . .then it will crash on program exit again and reboot with error messages.

IRQ status reads: >(IRQ 22 TV Capture Card WDM Video Capture OK)

So. . .then I uninstalled the software and went back to the vendor. "please re-install the TV tuner software." Then same problem surfaces again. intermittent system crashes on exit one out of five times.

And now. . .PC TV runs perfectly 4 out of 5 times, crashes the 5th time. Sound works now. I am stumped.

Any ideas from all you bright guys and gals out there? Have seen many posts with Intervideo problems but none matching my case with TV Card and Powered Antenna use for local Off-Air reception of live TV channels.
The vendor described the 'Glaring Video' PC TV package he installed as "good hardware but touchy software! Verrry touchy!" Neither he nor I could find the problem. I'm still learning and might fall un... Read more

I would have posted in WMC but this seems to be a hardware issue.
Device manager only shows one Avermedia tuner.
These are identical PCIE cards.
In device manager should it not display 2 Avermedia devices?
It shows the USB vbox 3560 tuner, it shows an Avermedia tuner.

Oddly WMC claims tuner 1 has no signal?
Another TV program only says 2 tuners available, Avermedia tuner 2, Vbox 3560 tuner.

Also If I boot with only one Avermedia PCIE tuner card, either one functions ok.
If I boot with 2 Avermedia PCIE tuner cards, only one Avermedia tuner card functions and windows seems to call it Avermedia tuner 2

So what is happening you think?
Can windows distinguish 2 identical cards and configure them, or is windows getting confused?
Both cards get hot to the touch when both are plugged in together.

Hi there. I will just explain my hardware in question before asking my question.

I recently built myself a new RIG and then purchased myself a 42inch monitor;

"http://www.lg.com/us/commercial/widescreen-monitors/lg-M4210LCBA"

The monitor does not have a built in TV Tuner. And I am interested in having this monitor stream my cable.

So here is my situation, I currently live in Ontario and have a Cogeco Cable Box, if I were to purchase the "Hauppauge 2250" Tv tuner, would I be able to connect my Cable box to my PC-TV Tuner and also be able to see all my channels as I would from my cable box as if it where connected to a normal TV?

If more information is needed just let me know.

Thank you,

- Mike

Changed video cards.
Had memory tested.

When I was reinstalling a media center machine, I put in a new card (Asustek TV/FM Tuner card (7134)) from another media center machine (a packard bell).

It recognised the card but needed drivers. I went on the packard bell website to download them but when it came to installing, half way through, it restarted the machine.

I tried taking the card out, installing the drivers and putting it back in but when it was associating the drivers with the card, it rebooted again.

Any ideas?

Hey, i have tv tuner card, and i'm trying to get the cable box to work on it. I have a coaxial cable. The tuner card is a Hauppauge HVR-1250. I have a nvidia gt 220 video card, it's an evga. I have a nforce 790i ultra motherboard. It's an evga too. I started with a fresh hard drive and i installed windows 7 64-bit home premium, then i installed the video card with the original disc. Then i installed the tuner card from the disc. My motherboard disc doesn't support windows 7, so i have to download the drivers from nvidia. I have a viewsonic lcd monitor which has speakers, and i know monitors with speakers can cause problems with some things in windows. I tried to install it with my other lcd monitor which is a samsung but it doesn't have speakers. It still didn't work. I also tried to install everything with a standard keyboard which hooks up to ps/2. I also have a razer laceasis mouse but i used my regular hp mouse. I installed everything with the modem unplugged. And i had the coaxial coming from the cable box to the computer, hooked up throughout all my installs. I have updated everything off the hauppauge and nvidia sites for the video card and tuner card. I also updated windows completely. I did bypass the drivers found by windows update. I can run the tuner card with a s-video and 1/8" jack if i need to. I really don't know what's goin on.

A:tv tuner card locks computer

I don't think this has anything to do with your monitor, speakers, keyboard or mouse, or S-video or coax cable; it is something else.

Did you install the motherboard chipset drivers? When you say "One time it worked for 3 hours but then it locked", what does that mean. The PC worked for 3 hours with the TV tuner doing nothing? Or watching TV 3 hours? Are you using Media Center or the WinTV application?

I have a Dell C521 with Vista Ultimate 64-bit, AMD 64x2 dual core 3800+/2.00 GHz, and GeForce 6150 LE with ATI Theater 650 Pro tuner, 9.1 driver.

I also have choppy TV live reception, some channels black with that combination. I understand, that this is probably due to a slow processor.

Somebody on this forum had similar problems and solved them by updating/tweaking his/her Hauppauge WinTV-HRV tuner drivers. The ATI theater doesn't have that option.

I am thinking of buying the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 card. I requires minimum 2.2 GHz, .2 more gigs than I have. Will it work anyway, if I declare myself satified with digital reception quality over the air only, and not the more GPU resource demanding HDTV. The Hauppauge card software has som interesting tweak options, see attachment. Hope very much somebody can help me with this!

I finally solved the major part of my computer noise problem on my two-year-old AMD 1Ghz T-Bird box. The Zalman CNPS3100-Plus, a funky looking copper flower heatsink along with a 92mm fan that spins at only 1500rpm really is amazing. What a relief, Iím sorry I did not get around to installing it sooner, like two years sooner. Now the loudest component is the 40GB Maxtor.

Please tell me if I waste you peoples time. Im a fan of building computer cases.
Now I was wondering what you people would think of a cylindric case? You know, that look like a bin (or a very large coffee tin) or something. Then you put the mobo near the bottom but not too close to it, put air intakes near it and one BIG extractor fan on top of the case. No corners for heat to gather

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...
 

A:Looking for a computer case

I found this as the cheapest with all the features you want, except it has an 80mm front fan and a 120mm rear fan. If you really need that 120mm front fan, this has it for about $7 more.

I want to run a computer out of a plastic bin. If I lay the MoBo and powersupply on the bottom, then duct tape all of the peripherals to the side... will it run? Would it do better out of a cardboard box?
 

A:No computer case?

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.

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.

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.

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 [email protected] 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!

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.

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

I want to buy a new computer case, one with a clear side or the whole thing completely see through so i can put in LED fans and light up cables and so on. I don't know where to begin to look because i don't want something that all my computer things wont fit into. I was talking to my friend and he said i had to check my power supply or something for ATX or EATX or something like that and i don't feel like taking it apart because there is a fan exhaust tunnel in the way. I have a Dell Dimension 3000. Ive looked for specs about this on websites but cant seem to find any. Any info on my computer and or sites with such cases would be appreciated.

I've been shopping for a case to build my system around. This one is found at CompUSA and has a 300w PS though not a name brand. I did some digging on the web and actually found a review of this case. I was wondering what some of you guys think of its specs

Case Review

Maybe some of you who have built systems would know if this type of case would make a decent build or not. I want to go with an Athlon XP1500 m/b in it. I don't know if I should buy my own PS to put in it or use the one it comes with, its a brand called Power-Win.

My computer keeps shutting down when playing games or converting movies. I changed RAM (then putting old modules back because they weren't causing the problem), bought a new PSU and installed 2 aditional fans. It didn't work. So, my "diagnosis" is that dust is causing the problem. I need some advice about cleaning the case, removing the CPU heatsink and stuff like that.

Dust can build up on the CPU fan and prevent proper cooling. This can be cleaned without removing the heat sink by using those cans of portable air blast. Take the case outside and being careful to not loosen any of the internal connections. blast the inside of the case and especially around the cpu with the air and that should help. Carpets/cats/dogs/people create dust and it tends to build up on the fins for the cpu cooler and prevent proper cooling.

Give this a shot and see if this helps.

Rich

PS: I do not recommend removing the heat sink as you will need heatsink grease when you reseat it. Also you take the chance of unplugging the cpu and they are dog to replace properly without bending pins which will ruin your whole day.

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

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.

A friend dropped off an IBM 300 GL for repair but the case is locked and the key has been lost. How can I get inside the box?

Thanks!

1 - try a generic PC key, if you have any.

In the OLD days of 486s and beyond (AT cases) the key was a joke since there was only 2, maybe 3 different keys made Oh, thats keyboard Keylock. Still a joke.

2 - May have to HACK the case open, hacksaw, screw drivers. Metal shavings from damaging the case can easily short out the board...

3 - Try to locate another 300GL and hope it has a key that may open it, but considering that the GL series were the business line, that means there could be different keys depending on the purchaser.

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.

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
 

A:Anyone here using a Chemming computer case?

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

Hi,

We bought a refurbished computer for our son but when it arrived the computer case cooling fan was loose - had not been properly attached. My question is which way should the fan face when it's attached? There's a vent at the front of the case and mounting holes which it matches, but do I put it so the blades are convex or concave when mounting facing the front of computer? I was going to mount it with the convex side facing the front and my husband said it should be the opposite. He's no computer expert so I don't really trust his judgement after all the blunders he's commited with our computers. Hee hee.

Hey guys,

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.

Would prefer a case that already has a good power supply installed, although I will buy them separately and put them together if that is needed to get the quality I want. Quality is my primary concern. Also, I tend to stay away from the mini-ATX motherboards, preferring the standard ATX MB's. Anyone have a good experience with prebuilt case/power supply combos?

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

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 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.

Hi,

The only problem that I see here is that you don't have an Antivirus and Firewall running and that your Windows is not up to date.
Any reason why you don't secure your computer?

My friend let me have his old Cooler master 430 black elite, Im having trouble with it. My computer wont turn on, I know all my components work because they just came off my old case and they worked great. The difference between my case and this new case is the system panel cords(ie. hdd led, reset sw, power led, and power sw) are all seperate meaning there are 5 different cords compared to the one that my old case used to have one bundled up. I've looked online on how to connect these and nothing seems to work. Anyone know how to connect these cords to my intel g41 chipset?

I put my part of my one computer into a new case so I could make room for a new computer but I have a little problem now. All I did was to take all my parts out of my one case which I will be putting new parts in and put them into my new case and in my device manager now I have an exclamation mark in other devices and it says pci device. I did not put any new parts in I just had to take them out to move the mobod etc. The only thing I have in a pci slot is an audigy 2 zs gamer which has not caused me any problems before. It works great and everything seems to be fine. I have xp pro with an amd 4400+ along with and ati 2600xt.
Anyone seen this before?
 

A:Put my computer into a new case and now a little problem?

Is there a PCI device that this could relate to? I.e. do you have another PCI device that this could be?

IF there is then it's possible that it got damaged when it was being moved to the other case.

Hey there. I've recently got an upgraded Lenovo H50 from Best Buy two weeks ago and it's worked great, but I've noticed an upside down L indent on the right side of the case, closer to the power button one day. I know that I haven't done anything to it, so could any of you possibly know about this?

I have noticed that a computer that comes factory installed with Windows 7 doesn't use they product key on the side of the computer. Does that mean I could use that key on another computer? These factory installed copies of windows come with a volume activation key, they do not use the key on the side of the pc.

A:Product key on the side of computer case

No you can't use it on another machine, you would use that number if you had to re-install the OS for any reason, plus if it's an OEM copy it is tied to the machine it comes on and cannot be moved to another machine even if the machine it came on dies.

So I bought all the parts to build a new computer.
Slapped the bad boy together, tried to turn it on, NOTHING.
No lights, no fans, no noise.

Troubleshooted for awhile, Figured out that maybe it was the power switch on the new case. So I decided to put it into another case. It booted up just fine, ran it all night. No problems what so ever.

So I really want to use this new case. And thought that maybe I would try the reset switch plug in on the power plug in on the motherboard that's in the OLD case. Boots up just fine. So I think to myself ok great, so I'll just use the reset button as the power button no big deal.
Ummm..no, didn't work out that way.

So I plug everything back into the NEW case, use the reset switch plug on the power pins on the motherboard. NOPE. Same thing as before, won't boot up at all, no fans no lights nothing.

So at this point I'm pretty steamed So I pull everything out of the new case, and put it on a piece of cardboard, plug everything in the way it's suppose to be. Only thing I have are the ram, cpu/heatsink in the unit.
IT TURNS ON!!!!!

So everything runs fine placed into a different case, runs fine outside of the case, but will not run in the case. The only thing I can think of is something inside the case is shorting it out.

What could be causing this?

Thanks for any help.
 

A:Computer won't boot inside of case, but will outside

Hello and welcome to TSG!!

Be sure none of the mounting standoffs are in a bad location for your motherboard. Sometimes cases will have optional locations to accommodate other boards, but one of those locations may intefere with circuitry on some boards. Verify very carefully the location of each metal standoff. Ensure that the area around each is clear. Often you will get plastic washers that can be used if a particular location looks a little iffy, or for extra safety (though they can be hard to work with, especially trying to use more than one or two!).

There should be no other part of the case that could interfere with the mounting, but look around thoroughly to be sure there is nothing contacting the board.

Are you sure the power supply in the new case is working? You can always connect the old one to test.

Hello, I was borrowing my folks' pc while mine was unavailable (long story), and accidentally clicked a link to a site that looked a bit dodgy. It was linked from a WoWwiki page I was browsing. I backed out, cleared the Firefox cache and ran a scan using Norton 360. The scan came up clean. I looked on the WoWpedia version of the article (offshoot version of the site because many of the contributors disagreed with recent Wikia changes, so it has largely identical content), and their page history showed the same linked had been removed by someone claiming it was a malware site.I have subsequently downloaded, installed, updated and scanned with: Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, MalwareBytes, TrendMicro's Rootkit Buster, & Super ANTIspyware. I scanned all of them in safe mode, except TrendMicro's tool because it couldn't.Nothing was found by any of them.I haven't experienced any problems so far either.So, I apologize if I'm wasting anyone's time, but my parents aren't very computer-literate (I'm not particularly good either, heh), so I just wanted to be extra careful and make absolutely sure it's clear before I returned it.

I have a really big question, our cat has once again gotten her claws stuck in our case. We have this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129021.

She's gotten them stuck both in the front holes and side ones. Is there anything I can put over those fan covers that will prevent her from doing it? I'm not worried about the top one as it has much larger holes in comparison to the front and side ones. I've thought about possibly cutting up a window screen? Or, I know this one will sound weird but panty hose? Since it's thin..

I'm worried that she'll do this when we're not here and possibly rip a claw out. And getting her declawed is out of the question.

Thank you for your help.

I am building my first PC, and have chosen these parts:

Power Supply: Corsair CX750 ATX 80+

Mobo: MSI ATX DDR3 2133 970

CPU: AMD FX 4350

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2 x 4gb) DDR3 1600 MHz PC3 12800 240-Pin DDR3 Dual Channel

Video Card: MSI GTX 960 Gaming 4G

Hard Drive: WD Black 500GB SATA 6 Gb/s, 7200 RPM, 64MB Cache

Optical Drive: Asus 24x DVD-RW Serial-ATA Internal OEM

So are these parts good, compatible, and somthing I would want for a gaming PC?

As far as a case goes, I have a budget of $50 for this. I want something with decent ventilation, and a design thats not just a big block. So like somthing with some angles or somthing. If it has a window or glow that would be even better.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

Computer Freezes When Case Is touched
My case is a Corsair 800D and I have built computer for a very long time. I have never experienced this before and want to know how to address this issue. Tomorrow I am going to reseat the MB as my first step in trying to fix this issue. Look at my system specs to see the complete build.

A:Computer Freezes When Case Is touched

Just lightly touching it anywhere? Does it freeze until you take your finger off? It is very odd, but would seem to point to some sort of grounding issue. It is of great concern, and you will want to figure it out as soon as possible!

Hey, Im recently installed a motherboard and in the process of connecting it to the main wires from the computer case itself. unfortunitly ive come to stump with one of the wires so im looking to see if i can find some sort of examples or perhaps a manuel of my case online.

Problem is i havent a clue what make or model of case it actually, was given to me as a present and it doesent have very many distinctive marks. On the fron there is a large logo stating eBox however after a few internet searches i found nothing.

Has anyone ever came across this make before and is there anywhere i can get support?

Thanks
