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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Fans with molex connector and pin connector

The 3pin connectors are to plug directly in to the motherboard......if your motherboard does not have the 3pin connectors then plug the molex into the power supply

I just installed a new PSU and I was going to replace the molex connector connected to my video card but the connector that is in there now is stuck. The connector that is in there now is not part of the old PSU but rather a splitter I put on. It is a really crappy splitter. I even took my video card out and tried to remove the connector to no avail. I noticed that one of the cables of the connector was actually loose in the molex connector. I wasn't pulling on the cables or anything like that...but the splitter is just crap. Any suggestions on how to get the connector out without damaging my video card??

I recently became interested in doing a Molex connector mod. This mod consists of soldering a LED light onto the 5v (red) wire and the ground (black) wire. This makes your molex connector light up which can look very interesting.

Take a look at this website for How To on molex modding, and images of the final result.
http://www.metku.net/index.html?sect=view&n=1&path=mods/molexlight/index_eng

The main problem you encounter when doing this mod is, it is hard to find an LED that is small enough that runs on 5volts. I'm not even sure a 5volt 3mm LED exists. Because of thise you need a resistor. The resistor is either going to stick out of the molex connector a bit or your going to have to figure out a way to fit the resistor+led inside the molex. The method I am choosing to use is to just led the resistor stick out a bit, and place an inch of heatshrink around the wires outside of the molex (since I am going to be doing that anyway after installing wire sleeves, it all works out).

Well, today was my very first time ever soldering. I think I did pretty good. I ran into a small problem with this though. It's hard to get the molex pins back into the molex after doing this. You have to make sure there is no connection between the 5v wire and the ground wire other than the LED light or you'll end up shorting/frying something. You also have to eliminate part of the "wall" inside the molex connector that is between the 5v/ground wires so that ... Read more

I recieved a scythe fan (JyuNi Kaze 1200). The fan has a 3 pin connector and an additional 4 pin molex connector that can be used. I used this because I read that the fan wouldn't run on full speed. But on this 4 pin molex connector there is also an additional 3 pin connector. What is it for and where should it be connected? Do I need to connect it? The fan already runs ok.
 

A:fan with molex/3pin connector

According to this page a 3-pin to 4-pin adapter is included. Could that be the connector you're asking about?
If so it does not have to be connected to anything. Just there in case you need it.

Hello, I'm new to these forums. I think I'm in the right area, if not I'm really sorry.

My problem is my pc won't turn on. One early morning it was already running, just fine running the scheduled virus scanner. Around noon when I came back to check on it, there was no video and I had to force it to power down/reset by holding down the power switch. After that, it wouldn't show any sign of life.. none at all, no noise, no crackle, no smoke or fire, or smell.. until just recently.

I did a number of tests already. This is what (I think) I've found out.

It does not seem the PSU is the culprit.

I brought the PSU to a shop and asked them to check it for me.. they said it was fine.
It worked in my friend's computer, which is identical stock-wise (mine only has a different PSU and one more RAM card)
Taking the stock PSU from my friend's PC and inserting it in mine did not boot up my PC

The red and black wires on the power switch is okay on continuity. This is proven with the next thing.

The computer came to life! Or I thought it did. Unplugging ONLY the P4 molex connector allows the PSU to turn on, where it was not before. There is no video however, and it doesn't seem like anything else turns on. Testing that connector, I get 12V which seems right.

This connector, when disconnected, keeps my PSU from powering on.
I've reset the BIOS on my mobo and the canisters on it look alright. After this, I'm not sure what else ... Read more

The idea is to solder twenty wires to the ATX board, thne just use any connector/splice to the PSU

Of course, the four-pin Molex for the ATA/CD drives would remain,
as would any SATA or AUX PWR connectors
Why not? Is is worth it?

I have had the same computer for ten years now, and have gone through
two motherboards and a half a dozen or so power supplies.

The cost of building a new system for my needs would be prohibitive,
compared to a power supply swap

The only catch is: it must be an ATX !.! or older,
due to the minus 12 volt rail missing on the ATX 2

Wish me luck. This is my main workhorse!

Any suggestions???

Like many, I have CD-ROM problems, but mine is a little unusual. I have a 58x vanilla CD-ROM chained as a slave to a master Plextor 708-A DVD writer. Both are on the secondary IDE connector of an Asus P5GD1 board. This is the one with the RAID connector possibility on the secondary connector but the default on the Secondary connector is to IDE and I've left it that way. The two hard drives are chained master/slave to the primary and are working fine. Windows XP SP2, P4 3 Ghz, 1 GB RAM.

The CD-ROM shows up in Device Manager but freezes when I've tried to read a CD. The DVD writer works fine and will show anything when there is a disc in there. I've tried the usual workarounds, elminating the Upper and Lower Filters, removing the drives from Device Manager, zilch. In Event Manager, I keep showing Event 51 (paging error) and 11 (controller error) trying to use the CD-ROM. The Event 11 explanation says a "faulty cable" is the problem but I've changed cables twice.

What I'm thinking is that I currently have an 80-pin cable hooked up to the two optical drives and the Asus Secondary Connector which is made for an Ultra ATA 133/100/66 port and the motherboard asks for an Ultra ATA signal cable. Should that cable be a 40-pin connector rather than the 80-pin connector? Would that allow the CD-ROM to be read and will the DVD still work?

Might check your 8 pin connector to see if it is a 6+2.
That means that 2 pins may be removable to allow
use as a 6 pin connector.
Check the cards package content list to see if it includes
a 4 pin molex to 6 pin pci express adapter.
If not,you can buy one pretty cheap.

But it sounds as though you haven't plugged the power into the Video Card (some 3D Video cards have this, maybe yours?)

In settings - system - apps & features - there is app connector.
What is it?
Can it be uninstalled safely?
Have you uninstallled it?

Googled a lot but not much info on app connector?

Some info here.
 

A:What is app connector in Win 10 & have you uninstalled it?

From what I read you can uninstall it and nothing adverse happens but it seems as though nobody really knows what it does,including Microsoft.Personally I would just leave it alone.
Create a restore point and uninstall it and then let us know if something bad happens

Dear All,

I need help regarding this connector (please see it on Image URL). It comes with car but we don't have any idea for what that connector is. We tried an iPhone 4 and iPad but no any effect. Also checked on car manual its not mentioned?



Thanks in advance.

Are all power led connectors 3 pin connectors or are some of them two pin? I'm getting a new PC case and my current motherboard only supports 2 pin power led connectors. Oh well, you don't need the power led do you? Like it won't stop the PC from working?

I just started building a new system by buying all new parts except using my old power supply. I realized that my old powersupply (Forton - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817104952) only had a 20+4 pin connector instead of the 24 pin atx connector that my motherboard uses. I was wondering if I could combine the 20 pin and 4 pin connectors and plug them into the 24 pin socket, without causing any damage or malfunction.

Any help would be appreciated.
