I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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?

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.

I am trying to put another hard drive in this dell opitplex 260x of mine. It is becoming nothing but a pain in the rear cause the case uses them stupid green sliders and the case is too small. Could I use another computer case like remove all the parts and transfer them over to the other case.

say a case like this

A:use another case instead of the dell optiplex case

thats a nice case but if ur willing to blow that kind of money i would get this its a full tower so lots of room or this this one has some of the best airflow and fan capabilities i would buy this one if u have the money
or if ur low on cash get this which is really beautiful and cheap (recomend if u dont got cash lol)

Hello, I'm not that good with hardware and i'm experiencing some problems.. I just noticed that my computer's case (i'm not sure if it's called a case, it's the black thingie that you see outside the computer) becomes hot after a while and it gives out really hot air from the back where the psu fan is located.

I've went to my friend's place and checked his computer, which is on most of the day and it never gives out any hot air from the back nor does the case get hot :s

So any suggestions on what i should do? Is this bad or it's just normal?

can someone be kind enough to tell how hard it is to upgrade a pc case to a more moden one is it going to be very hard to move guts from one to another

A:new pc case

If your MB is of the newer kind (ATX) then it's easy and everything should slip right in. If you have an older computer then the MB might not fit. Just make sure that you ground yourself by touching something metal to discharge any static electricity that might have accumulated on your hands before you start the change over.

i want to replace my pc case with a more up to date one how hard is it going to be to take all the guts out of old one and set up in new one
please help

A:new case

It depends. If you have an older computer a new case probably won't work nor the power supply (if it comes with one). New cases are ATX and you need an ATX motherboard. If you have an ATX MB now then the swap should be easy. Just make sure you ground yourself because static electricity can fry a CPU.

i just got a new PC case and it has a switch on the back that says 115v and 230v what should i leave it on i dont want to burn up my motherboard by setting the volts to high what should i leave it on thanks

A:New Case

Are you in the U.S.? and are you plugging it into an outlet that can be used by a regular household lamp?

If so, then keep it on 115v -- 230v is a higher voltage system with different characteristics.

shouldn't be, just as long as the main on the new power supply is set to 115 volts, but that is default so I doubt it would be different. The switch on the back of the power supply sets it for 115 or 230 something.

I purchased this PC that came with this Thermaltake V3 Black Edition. Well, it's all right except it hasn't that small front LED that allows me to check disk activity. So I can't see if my PC has that infamous "grinding" that many times means trouble.

So I wonder if there is some app I can put, say, on the system tray to check disk activity the same way of that missing LED.


A:The case of the LED-less case


According to the manual of your case and what I could see on pictures of it there should be leds available I think for power-on and hdd activity, maybe if you purchased the computer already assembled they did not connect the leds.
I'm not shure but I think hdd on the left middle and power-on on the right.
If you still want a hdd activity light on your taskbar you can try DKharddrive-light, I don't know if it will work on Windows 7 but you can give it a try: Downloads | DKpcCODE | Custom Software Development

So I've been building my new gaming rig as suggested by Rage here. I have almost everything with the exception of the RAM, graphics card, hard drive and optical drive. I got my motherboard on friday and wanted to give it a little test drive. However when I pushed the power button on my case it doesn't turn on. I know it's not my power supply since I hooked it up with my old system and it works fine and I also don't think it's my motherboard since I tried out my case's power switch with my old motherboard and it doesn't work. Is there something I'm missing or should I start contacting Antec to see if they'll send me a new switch?

P.S. : I also tried hooking the Reset SW into the PWR slot on my motherboard to see if that works and it doesn't.

A:Bad Case?

double and triple check that you have the PWR and reset plugged in to the correct place Zach, that gets mis-wired more than anything else.

A:Best Sub £130 case?

What's wrong with the Antec 1200? That case really doesn't require subbing, it's perfect in its own right.

The Antec 900 (2), is pretty spiffy also. It supports water cooling, is fairly roomy, has good airflow, and would be great if you wanted a mid-tower rather than a full.

I'm linking a few Thermaltake offerings, tentatively in you approximate price range;

Antec's customer service is stellar, while Cooler Master's is wretched, hence their absence from these suggestions.

A:Case/PSU vs. PSU only?

Generally speaking PSU that comes with the case are of lower quality. Personally, I think its a personal preference.

Some reputable PSU manufacturers include Antec, Enermax and etc. You might be better off buying a PSU from them.

As long as its an ATX power supply, the power supply should be able to fit properly into any ATX case.

Well, I have virus issues at the moment and will try another fix tonight when I get home, thanks to HJT help. But, if things are too messed up I'm thinking I may need to format the hard drive to clear it out. What I was wondering was, how do I make a boot disk - and use it? I assume I would need one if going that route. Obviously I'm not very knowledgeable on these things.Or, if I do an upgrade to XP Professional from XP Home, will this totally replace the screwed up registry and it's associated virus? I'm toying with doing the upgrade if one of my sons doesn't cough up my XP Home CD. Thanks for any input here!Krooz

A:Just In Case

The XP Home and Pro CDs should be bootable. If you're going to upgrade from Home to Pro, and you want a clean slate, you can format through the CD services. I'd suggest doing a full format so you know you're getting rid of everything on that drive.

A:My First Case Mod


Well for the plastic, id try Krylon Fusion spray paint you can buy it about anywhere it actually melts the plastic a bit and then bonds to it.. For the metal, you can use any spray paint but no matter what its not going to be the best lasting stuff and will chip or flake if you look at it funny, well not really but it isnt the best if you move your case around a lot. Just sand it first, get it rough then paint it, the paint will stick better.

As far as the window goes, plexi is the easiest to work with and cut. I suggest using pop rivets to secure it to the side panal but make some type of tension bracket that you can rivet to and at the same time hold the plexi in snug as if you try to rivet the plexi directly it wil crack.

Yes the case is a ATX case....

I am not a hardware expert - and was in doubt if this is the correct forum... for my cooling issue?

Hope someone can help out.


A:Do I need a case fan?

I wouldn't go without any fan at all. You can replace it with a quieter one. Compare the decibel ratings of the different fans to get one that is relatively quiet. If your case permits fitting a larger fan, they will move the same or more air at a lower RPM which equals less noise. There are adjustable speed fans too so you can minimize noise. However, adequate cooling is the first priority.

i have a gateway gt4016 desktop computer, xp pro operating system. i want to replace my case fan with a upgrade. one that has less noise and moves more air then the stock fan by gateway. the cpu is cooled by this fan in a passive setup so i want to be careful.any advice would be a help. thanks in advance.

A:case fan

From the information I can find on the Gateway GT4016 is that it is a uBTX form factor machine. Intel has discontinued further developement of BTX form factors.

Initially Intel had 2 BTX cooler modules, a Type 1 and a Type 2 and they were not interchangeable. Gateway MAY have used a proprietary cooling module for your machine, and you may be stuck with getting a replacement from Gateway.

im planning on buying a new case for my computer and am trying to decide between these two cases

Coolermaster Cavalier 3 CAV-T03 Black midi tower case NO PSU

ThermalTake Soprano VB1000BWS Black c/w 2x case fans +USB2 + +window NO PSU

the thermal take is 51 and the coolmaster is 42 is it worthwhile me spending the extra 9 pounds.

A:Which case to buy

Unless you just like the look of the ThermalTake better (I do) I'd get the CoolerMaster. I've built a few systems with CoolerMaster cases and really liked them, the toolless installation is pretty nice (but obviously you still need a screwdriver for the motherboard and psu).

So I just got a new case , Corsair Obsidian 750D Airflow Edition , moved everything last night from my NZXT H440 case. Just by doing this ive knocked 10 degrees off my max GPU temps in stress tests (72 down to 62 ish ) and CPU 7 - 10 degrees after 10 minutes of Aida 64. I have to say it isnt as quiet as my NZXT and i didnt compensate for ambient temps but our house is always about the same temperature (too hot :/ )

Oh and the case is MASSIVE!!

I recently had a power supply go bad, and was thinking of making a case fan from the fan inside of the old PS and using the wires from inside of there. How would I go about doing this?

A:Case Fan

Here's the pinout for a standard molex, just find a old molex connector and splice the wires in.

Power Supply plug 5.25-inch 4-pin Molex

Pin# Color Function
1 Yellow +12V DC
2 Black Ground
3 Black Ground
4 Red +5V DC
Normally all that's needed for this kinda thing is the yellow and a black,
but if the fan spins too fast tye the yellow and the red and you'll get +7V DC instead of +12V. Or just use the red and the black for +5V's.

I'm getting:

2gb ram
intel q6600
ati x1900 xt
2 sata hard drives
1 dvd burner

Would this be ok for it?

A:Would this psu and case be ok for me?


I never heard of that brand, but it does have 38amps on the +12v rail which isnt bad and should run your stuff just fine. As far as how good its overload protection is ? Not sure. You get what you pay for when you buy a power supply and it isnt somthing that you should skimp on even on a budget system.

Cheap power supplies fail more often than more expensive quality ones. Usually when a cheapie blows you end up replacing way more than the power supply and you actually end up spending lots more then it would have cost you to spend a few extra bucks on a quality power supply.

Hi guys,

I want to buy that motherboard

But i'm not sure which case to get and i think i might need an IO Plate aswell

I found that and it comes with a 450w PSU would this case be what i'm looking for?

And can anyone link me to an IO Plate for that motherboard?


A:PSU And Case

"i think i might need an IO Plate as well"

Should be included. On the Ebay post click on Ask [Seller] A Question to find out for sure.

As to the power supply, for general computing it may be sufficiently adequate. For hard core may be lacking. There's more to a power supply than just it's wattage.

Again, I would ask seller for more information.

Ok, I'm building a computer, but I'm not sure about which case to get. I was hoping for one that comes with a power supply, mostly because they are cheaper. I was reccommend an Antec one, but Newegg doesn't have it anymore.

Im looking for something that is cheap, but will last a good while. I'd probably only want to spend $100, but if I could get an okay case with a nice power supply seperate, I wouldn't mind spending a bit more money if it would last longer. So can some one please help me find a good case and power supply. Thanks!

Hello. I just replaced my old case with a new one. I have a Fic sd-11 motherboard.I am running Athlon 500. in the old case the power switch and the reset button worked fine. When pressing the power button for 4 seconds the computer would shutdown. In the new case not only the power button shuts down the system immediately( without the 4 seconds wait) the reset function doesnt work. I know the buttons are good and I have not made any changes in the BIOS. If you have any ideas I would appreciate them. Thank you.

I am replacing the case fan in my dell dimension 8100. I know it's pretty dumb but I want to make sure the fan is facing the correct direction ( I don't remember which way the old fan faced when I removed it)
should the fan be exhausting out the back of the case or blowing the air to the inside of the case? Thanks

A:case fan

Well, I would say the fan should be exhaustin out the back of the case, correct me if i'm wrong.

But Why do you want to replace a case fan, is it because the computer overheating?

im just wondering if it supports my cpu (amd anthlon 64 2x 4600+) ((as i dont understand wat it says.))

A:case help! PLZ!

hi topps,

the case itself doesn't matter. any case will work as long is it accepts the motherboard you plan on using.

since you plan on buying a case/water cooler combo, the compatibility issue would be with the CPU waterblock. the specs state "all AMD K8 series".... All current Athlon 64's are part of the K8 family, so your's should be "supported". basically the waterblock will include 3 different mounting brackets for each supported socket type.

A:Help with new ATX Case

Most ATX cases are also set up to hold MicroATX boards (like yours), so your mobo should fit. However, that power supply is most likely of very low quality and should be replaced. According to the specs on the ebay page, it only puts out 18A on the 12v line, which is pretty low for a 450 watt psu. You can get a decent Fortron FCS from Newegg for around $35.

It's very cluttered in there. All 4 external bays are in use and one of my smaller ones is in use as well. I think all the crap inside may contribute to heat. i'm using water cooling and i'm at 45C average. and on goo days 40C. I don't need a power supply on the case since i have a good one, OCZ 600watt

I am wanting to get a new case so I can upgrade my graphics as my case is really small and cant support good graphics cards.

Can someone please suggest a case that can support my motherboard and is big enough to support a Gtx 670 or a MSI gtx 750 ti. Thank you, I will gladly give kudos.

A:New case

@Reed71?, welcome to the forum. The video card slot on the motherboard is PCI Express x16 (Gen2.0).  Both of the viedeo cards that you mentioned are PCI Express x16 (Gen3.0).  Therefore, they are not compatible. HP has their motherboards made to their specs.  Therefore, it is difficult to find a case that the stand-offs will match the holes in the motherboard.  Also, some of the connectors in the case may not be compatible, such as, the power button. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

What case would you guys recommend for this system:

550W Antec True Power 2 EPS Power Supply
ASUS A8N SLI Premium Nforce4
AMD64 4000+
2 x 1GB Geil DDR 400
1 x 200GB Seagate SATA

I really like the look of the ANTEC P180, but am a bit worried about whether the PSU is right for it, I have read some forums were people have had problems with fitting in their PSU's into the case and also the cable lengths.

I am assuming that the ANTEC PSU would suit the ANTEC case, but I have been caught this way before

A:Which case?????

i can't praise the sonatec II any higher it's a wonderful case ut comes with a psu already installed... you may be able to buy this and recoup some cash on either of the psu's

its a very quiet case with very easy installation (apart from a removable mb tray)

excuse any rambling i've just got home from a party with plenty of booze!

Hi I purchased the ARCTIC COOLING AF Pro PWM mm Case Fan after reading its decent reviews at newegg I don t know the difference between TC and PWM but it seemed like PWM was the right choice After receiving it I noticed unlike my previous thermaltake Fan - Case fan? Case Not case fan this had no where to put the screws it Case Fan - Not Case fan? came with There s a little rubber thing going through some hole where the screws should go but it looks like it s what s holding the fan together so I havn t pulled them out Like a confused customer I went to arctic cooling s main website for further instructions like the sad-excuse-for-a-instruction-guide said to do for further instructions but it had the same exact installation instructions that came with the fan which by the way only instruct you on how to install it as a cpu fan I d like to know if I maybe bought the wrong type of fan PWM and whatnot or if it s just operator error which it might just be Any and all help is appreciated Please and thank you nbsp

A:Case Fan - Not Case fan?

Those are noise reduction fan mounts.
Basically you put them through the fan mount holes and
pull on the end till they pop through enough to hold them
in place.
They are designed to reduce vibration noise caused by the fan.
That is if they look something like this.
