I've pulled the old Fan out. When I google the PN: hi. 10800.028 e
I learn it's Socket 775, 95mm which I confirmed by measuring fan diameter.

Tiger Direct shows this right-priced replacement model which matches every spec except it has a 3 pin plug: VALUE SOCKET T/775 HEATSINK at TigerDirect.com. They don't know if 3 pin plug works when 4 pins are present on mobo and original part has 4 pin plug.

There's also this used one which exactly matches PN: Acer HI.10800.028 Heatsink and Fan Gateway AX3400G X1420G X1920G

And this one for twice the price that matches even the Acer model number: New Acer Aspire X1200 X1300 X1301 X1800 X3200 X3300 X3810 Cpu Fan. But he doesn't wanna spend that much.
We only need the fan.

Hello,

I bought a new case about a week ago and tried it's USB ports..
All worked but one of the USB3 headers didn't..
So I checked the cables, checked everything.. Decided to remove the USB3 plug from the MOBO and what do I see?
2 Pins are missing!

I have no idea how or when.. I tried to search for them, maybe they snaped when I unpluged the cable, but I didn't find anything..
The missing are pins 1 and 2 in the picture..
I think that pin 19 is missing too.. The image kind of faded off my mind right now..

Are those pins the reason why one of the USB3 ports won't work?
What do they mean? What do they do?
Is it safe to even keep the cable connected to the MOBO without those pins?

Thanks.

A:Broken USB Motherboard pins

Pin 1 is power, pin 19 is power and pin 2 is the USB 3 RX- signal, so yeah that's the reason the ports won't work. I can't see any harm in leaving it plugged in.

What are your repair options when one or more pins in the 25pin monitor cord get crushed or are missing?

Yes, I think the cord was plugged into the computer upside down and forced, that's probably what happened, although I'm not positive.

However there are bend and missing pins...can the cord be replaced by a tech? I am no where near about to open the case as I am aware of the danger. But I'd like to know if that is the only option?

Can anyone help?

I have a Inspiron 15 3541 touch screen and "misplaced" my power cord and adapter. I'm using a Dell adapter from a different computer, but when I turned on my laptop, I get a message requiring a system or admin password even before it boots up. Is this because of the different adapter? How many pins did my adapter have? What problems does a different adapter create?

A:Power adapter pins

The password that is showing up before your computer boots sounds like there is a BIOS password set on the computer.  Unfortunately if you don't remember that password then you are probably stuck.  You can probably go online and search and see if there is a way to reset BIOS on the laptop and get it to default and remove the password that is set on it.  If there is a hard drive password though then the only way to remove that if you forgot it is to install a new hard drive as the password will follow the drive, not the computer.
Your power supply should have only 1 pin.  Dell used the same adapter for their computers for a while, they come in different wattage though and if you use an adapter that is too low then it may not be able to charge the battery while you use it or at all.  If the plug fits and it is a Dell charger you should be okay to at least get the computer up and running.  If it is a low wattage charger and the setting is set in BIOS (usually is by default) you'll get a message from your computer telling you that the charger isn't powerful enough to charge the battery while in use.

This does not work. The pins round the long pin on the DVI side are missing, so how can an analog signal possibly get to the VGA side? The vendor sent me another set with the extra 4 pins and they work fine, but I'm interested to know why these ones were ever made like this!

A:DVI to VGA adapter - useless? - wrong pins?

Hello!

As a starting point, so we are on the same playing field, do you understand the difference between DVI-A, DVI-D, and DVI-I, all the difference between single link and duel link? You can read about them here: All About DVI

What you are showing in your picture is a DVI-D Dual Link to VGA adapter. This adapter will take in a digital DVI input, convert, and output it to VGA, and so will be only that way around.

What exactly were you trying to do? With a few conversion cables, and with some difficulty, it is possible to connect a VGA graphics card to a DVI monitor, although my understanding of this is that it cannot work.

Are you refuring to the 4 wire Molex adapter? If so, yes use that. Well, there are no molex plugs that plug into the mobo, there is the 20pin or 24, and the 4 wire, square one. But yes, you can use the 4wire molex adapter, that would be giving cdrom/hdd/video card power.

A:broken sata plug

Probably the best (easiest) way would be get a SATA power connector that has the wires on it. Cut off the wires of the broken plug and splice (solder) the wires from the new plug (make sure you connect the wires correctly) to the wires from the power supply for the broken plug. Be sure to properly insulate each of the spliced connections.

I don't know if you can buy a connector with wires, but you can get a PATA (IDE) power connector to SATA adapter and use the wires and SATA connector from that. '

hi corrytonapple, you can indeed get a cheap graphics card, I'd maybe look at an nvidia 8400GS or similar if you want to get simple graphics on, it should be sufficient to do basic computer tasks(word processing, web surfing, image editing), the graphics card will boot up with no drivers installed but you will still be able to see the screen, hope this helps.

A:Cannot plug A/C adapter in, please help

Which laptop model is it (get the info from the label on the bottom, not the bezel or plastic near the screen.
The adapter plug can be repaired by a skilled technician... but the cost is often as high as $175... the cost of a new motherboard. The part itself is sold by HP for about $40 from their "support" center, but should really only be about $6.00 on eBay. The trick is the soldering, which require skill and a lot of experience.
When we know your model numbers from the bottom sticker, we can perhaps be of more help.
It would also be helpful to know the city near where you live that might have technicians.

There is a simple resolution. Dell has not provided the @malkboy explanation to it phone support, engineering, tech, Terry_B or its partners.
Dell has not made an official statement regadring the design, the problem or a fix. Until then we can assume its a problem because we the customers don't like it.
@melkboy - were it the case that this is the design to prevent the cost of replacing a motherboard, etc., then Dell should so say. As it is Dell has burdened the cost of replacing my XPS17 2x, sending me an XPS 15, providing a daughterboard repalcement, 3x a new powercord and my loyalty and business. I have BEGGED to peak to someone with knowledge and no one has come forward to make your explanation.
@Terry_B has provided the best communication and there has been no communication from him to this effect.
Its a bad design, Dell's intent was not to prevent damage from tripping. Dell is running away from its customers and this problem.

Hi. Often, not always, when I plug in a USB device to one of the external USB ports on my desktop, my (already plugged in, and working) USB wireless adapter stops working. I lose my wireless Internet connection, and I have to reset it - either manually by unplugging it and re-inserting it, or via Windows' troubleshooting wizard. Is there either a way to stop this from happening completely (preferred, of course), or is there at least a quicker way of resetting it - like a quick program on the desktop I can run - I can even code it in Visual Studio (2013) if needed). I'm assuming that the USB ports are somehow shared and conflicting? FWIW, I have 6 USB ports on the back of the machine, plus a single one on the front access panel.

A:Wireless adapter needs resetting when I plug in a USB device

Hello JDGiants. Welcome to the forum.

Does this behavior happen no matter what port you plug the USB stick into? Even the one on the front access panel?

If this were a power problem then it would make sense that it occurs when two or more devices are drawing power from one USB controller on the motherboard.
USB2.0 can have up to 4 ports on one controller, so I'm guessing that at least 2 ports in the back are on a separate controller. By trying the wireless device in all the different ports you may be able to come up with a pattern.

You might also try experimenting with the keyboard and mouse disconnected. Report back what you find.

Hi
We recently purchased 4 Optiplex 7050 Mini Towers and 4 QLogic 57810 Dual Port 10Gb Direct Attach/SFP+ adapters. After I installed the Qlogic network adapter to the PCI-E x16 slot, POST failed when power on. The power light flash in yellow but no video output. I tried to use other PCI-E 8X card but the same result. A PCI-E 4x data acquisition card works find in both PCI-E slots (16x and 4x).
It seems the system considered the net network adapter as video card and thus no video output from build-in video card. Also, failed to check and init hardware.
Please correct me if I am wrong and could you advise any possible solutions such changing BIOS setup? 
Many thanks

A:POST failed when plug in PCI-E 8X network adapter

Try this, with that card removed from x16 slot, reboot and immediately press F2 to open BIOS setup.
Look for the Primary Display option and make sure it's set it to Intel HD Graphics, not to AUTO. Save the change and exit setup. Allow PC to boot and confirm that the onboard video is working. Then power off, unplug, and press/hold power button for ~15 sec. Now install that card in the x16 slot. Close up and reboot.
If that works, keep in mind that every time BIOS is reset to the defaults, eg to clear an error when the motherboard battery is removed,  you'll have to remove the add-in card, change the Primary Display option again...
If that doesn't work, you're probably out of luck using that card in the x16 slot.

My Dell D800 laptop stop working.

When I plug the ac-adapter the power light goes off on the adapter. It is obvious short on the motherboard. I did took it apart and look for some problem around DC-jack, but I don't think the problem is there. All the accessories are off . It is only mobo now by it self and does same thing. Anybody knows where I should look for the short. Which chip or diode it could be? I heard it is very common problem with D800 and D600 models. Since I am pretty good with soldering I think, and it is my hobby as well I would like to repair the mobo my self instead replace. Definitely would be much cheaper as well.

Thanks in advance for any input on this matter.
 

A:Dell D800 AC adapter turns off when plug in

Some laptops have a separate internal DC converter, and some DC converters are part of the motherboard. If you haven't tried another AC adapter, I would do that first. After replacing the AC adapter, check the DC jack for a high resistance using a good multimeter... A normal resistance would be around a half Meg ohm. If the internals are shorted, the resistance would be much lower. Unless you have the skill and tools to do surface mount soldering, I wouldn't attempt a repair

a little bit of background first. i no longer have a battery for my laptop. i can only use it when the adapter is plugged into it. yesterday i tried turning it on, but it doesnt. this morning i tried turning it on again and it turned on, for a few seconds then it died. after a few frustrating tries, i noticed that the AC adapter light would blink on and off, like it wasnt supplying power to my laptop. and because my laptop no longer has a battery, it dies. i tried to plug the adapter to another socket because i thought it was a grounded socket issue, but the same thing happens. a friend of mine suggested that it may be the radeon video card that i had got somehow fried or overheated or something, so we tried uninstalling it(yes, there was a time it stayed on long enough for me to log in and uninstall my video card). sometimes it would take 5 seconds for the AC adapter light to blink and die, sometimes it takes 5 minutes or so. after uninstalling my video card, the same thing still happens. when i turn it on, sometimes it only takes a couple of seconds before it dies. sometimes, even if i dont turn it on, the AC adapter light would go on and off, like there was something disrupting the flow of electricity from my socket to my AC adapter to my laptop that causes the light to blink on and off very fast. could it be a power supply issue?

Now, is there an adapter I can get to make the old big jacks fit into the new smaller sockets, if so, what does it look like/what is it called?

Thanks, and sorry once again for the infuriatingly vague post.

Hey guys.
So I like to think I'm pretty good with PCs considering i do the maintenance on my own whenever I need to. However, this computer is pretty new, about a week old. But I noticed that half the time, when i plug in my adpater to charge my laptop while I'm using it, it goes to sleep. I know it's asleep because (a) the fan stops running and (b) it's woken up quickly using typical methods to wake a computer.
Anyone got a clue about how to prevent it from auto-sleeping?
Thanks!

Hi I'm using an Advent 7111 Laptop using Windows XP Media Centre SP2.
I have an Orange Livebox wireless router (formerly Wanandoo I believe) and I can connect wirelessly on my laptop just fine when it is running on just the battery. As soon as I plug in the power adaptor/charger, the wireless connection disconnects. When I hover the cursor over the wireless connection logo in the bottom right corner (system tray i think it's called) it says the connection strength is excellent!? But even when it says it is excellent strength I still can't sign to Windows Live Messenger or surf the web! Please reply ASAP please!!!
 

A:Wireless network diconnects when I plug in the power adapter/charger!?

I did that to myself once when I carelessly put the power supply too near the wireless adapter.

If your power supply is not within inches of the adapter, and not in the direct path between router and adapter's antenna I'd guess you have a serious problem with the power supply or with the overall wiring in your house. Try plugging into the same outlet as the router.

Wall plug was damaged during an incident of unauthorized use by one of my resident knuckleheads.  The plug was snatched out of the wall but ground prong did not come with it.  I would like to repair vs. replace sincere ordinarily this is such a simple fix.  Unfortunately, I am unfamiliar with DELLs or their vendor's choice of wiring colors.  So I'm not sure where each of the purple, blue and yellow conductors should be landed on the replacement plug.

Hi there, I have a Lenovo Flex 3-1580 Laptop. Last week, this just started happening, when I plug in the power adapter, the screen brightness goes up and down by itself for about a minute or two and then stops. The laptop doesn?t charge the battery. I tried a different power adapter and cable but did the same thing. Is this a battery issue or a laptop hardware issue?

This is my third headset adapter that breaks and I barely touched it!
the adapter is an audio and mic for my headset since my laptop only have one plug in for the entire headset.
I've bought three adapters so far and the third one just broke like an hour before I bought it.
I had cycled around the entire city I live in to find a store with a thicker adapter since those don't break so easily.
I even told the cashier about it at the third store I visited and he suggested that I should put tape around it to prevent it from breaking. WELL IT DID faster than the other two adapters I've bought. I honestly believe my computer has a problem in the plug in area that causes the plug in to eventually break. what happens with the adapter is that the mic sound gets low and my friends can't hear me. and yes the sound is up. it worked fine an hour ago but not now for reasons I hope this community can figure out.

I recently, about 8 hours ago, bought an SSD, and reinstalled windows onto it, as ya do. And as Im reinstalling all my drivers, for my GPU, etc. and realise I cant find my Internet Adapter disc, I look on the internet for some driver files on my laptop, and download some, supposedly some drivers work with all ABit adapters, go to install it, and find that the adapter isnt in the list in the Device Manager panel. I literally spent the last 2 hours roaming the internet to find out whats happening, with no avail. I cant provide much info on it, as I swapped my old one for a spare of my friend, when I got a new GPU, and it covered my PCI pork, so got a PCI Express one, which I can say is an ABit AirPace, but only cause it says it on the donglie bit that comes out on a wire. I am literally at the end of my tether, if I have to I can buy a new adapter, but Id really prefer just fixing this one, thanks for reading for a start, and thanks for any help in advance.

A:New SSD broken my internet adapter?

Please fill in your system specs. This is what I get on a quick search ABIT AirPace Wi-Fi PCI Express Wireless Adapter - Newegg.com
Looks like no 7 drivers as the website no longer exists as ABit went out of business a few years ago. You'll have to buy another adapter, they are inexpensive.

Hi, when I'm using my PC, I regularly get disconnected from the internet. It connects to my wifi network, however there is no internet access. When I click on the wifi logo in the teaks at, windows explorer crashes and I have to restart my whole PC before I can connect again. Any ideas, or is my adapter broken?

Oh, and I'm using windows 7, and the network only seems faulty on my PC. My iPad and other computers around the house work perfectly.

OR

not sure i understand the statement ???

can we see an inSSIDer screen shot and an ipconfig /all please
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Run inSSIDer for home Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply
