Corsair HX750, dead after reseating and unplugging, re-plugging cables

Q: Corsair HX750, dead after reseating and unplugging, re-plugging cables

Urgh. Typical.

Install new case fans after moving 2 HD cages from the front of Corsar 600T case.
Check they run ok. Fine.
Put HD cages back in, one in the space on the bottom of the case beside the PSU.
Fight with the cables to get the HDs connected and the modular PSU cables back into the PSU.

- Attempt to power on. Nothing.
- Check cable, try another power cable. Nothing.
- No fans, no lights, nothing.
- No 'electrical sound' when flipping the switch on the back of the PSU.

Seems I have a 7 year warrant on the PSU and its only about 3 years old. But Corsair RMA system insists that you "try another PSU to verify the problem is the PSU" which is fair enough so off to buy another PSU, probably another Corsair. Hope the RMA system allows for refund rather than replacement, otherwise I'll have 2 PSUs which isn't really much use. I guess I can use this as an opportunity to upgrade to a bigger PSU since 7970 CF, 3 HD, 2 SSD, i7 2600K @ 4.7Ghz, a powered device connected to almost every single USB port is probably getting towards it's limits. I can then stick any replacement HX750 on Ebay or something...

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.)

My Corsair HX750 PSU has the tendency to "whine" after I shut down my computer. It's very irritating and I need to turn off the PSU from the back for the whining to stop. It doesn't whine whilst my computer is turned on.
Would/could this be covered under warranty and would I get a replacement model?

Thanks.

Hi all, I am building a new computer and have already got the Case, Motherboard, Hard Drive, DVD writer, CPU cooler, Neons and i am waiting on the RAM.

Next i plan to buy the Power Supply. But i am stuck on which one to buy. The Corsair HX650 or the HX750. I plan to overclock this new system as high as i possibly can.

The final specs will be:

AMD Phenom II x4 955 CPU
Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H Motherboard
4GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 RAM
1TB Samsung SpinPoint F3 HDD
2x HIS Radeon HD 6870 video cards
NZXT M59 Case

2 sets of cold cathodes are going into this system. 2 red ones and 2 blue ones.

So will the HX650 power this system fine. Or will i be better off getting the HX750, which is only $60NZ more then the 650.

Cheers, Nathan.
 

A:Corsair HX650 or HX750? Radeon 6870 CrossFire

The HX650w will suffice for that setup. Here is a little reading on the subject. This ais a an OC'd i7 956 BTW
http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-6850-6870-crossfirex-review/4

The HX650 has 52A on the 12v rail and is more than capable for a CF 6870's the 750w would provide headroom for upgrades, however the 6870 can only go 2x CF.

Getting ready to do the install on my new SSD with some trepidation. I have Raptors in Raid 0 right now and would like to simply unplug them, set the BIOS to AHCI and use the 0 port for the SSD experiment/potential fiasco. What I hope to be able to do if the SSD doesn't like me, is to unplug it, set the BIOS back to Raid, plug in the Raptors and pretend the whole thing never happened. Does this stand a chance of working?

A:Plugging and Unplugging!

I wouldnt unplug the raptor raid - if you use intel raid (the one i'm sure of and probably similar, or the same for others) when you enable raid in the bios it also enables AHCI - so you should be good to go with testing the ssd drive - just unplugging a raid array can be very hard to set up again - i did it years ago and it was a miracle i got it back up and going again (that included reinstalling the OS) so not recommended - it also depends what options are available in the raid rom (i think its called) which you set it up in before you install the OS. From memory, which is bad, the problem was it couldnt recognise one or both the drives.
It depends on your motherboard I guess but for mind it should be ok - running raid and using the same controller to use a ssd drive in AHCI mode - but treat this as my opinion - you should be able to find information on your motherboards site, or intel etc's, site. Or wait for more replies as Im uncertain and more repies means more suggestions.
If it has 2 controllers eg intel and jmicron use the JMICRON if it supports AHCI to be on the safe side.

Hey guys. I ran into a little problem recently, and would like to share it.
I know it is supposedly ok to plug USB cables in and out while the computer is on, but, to be safe I have always gone through the Safely Remove Hardware icon.
For some reason, though, I have always felt it is safe to just plug sound devices in and out with no regard to whether the computer is on or not. Have done this for years.
However, I noticed a few days ago that one channel of my onboard sound line input had quit, on my newest MB. I did not realize this for awhile, because somehow the system had just rerouted the one channel into both sides, when writing to the CD or DVD. (I noticed that Joe Walsh appeared to be playing an unplugged guitar on the Eagles Hell Freezes Over concert after transferring from my old VHS tape to DVD, even though both speakers were working! LOL)
Anyway...I fixed the problem by just installing a sound card. (by the way, even a cheap $14.00 sound card is at least as good as most onboard sound: mine sounds much better than the original.)
So, would you guys advise having the computer turned off, even to plug in headphones, for instance?
 

A:Plugging/unplugging sound devices

No, 1/8" jacks can freely be plugged/unplugged while the computer is on, and when you're outputting sound.
As to why the jack went dead, cou÷d've been just natural death of age, removing the plug at an extreme angle and damaging the jack, etc...

My problem is this, my motherboard is Biostar TP67B and I have downloaded the sound drivers from the manufacturer website which is realtek high definition audio.However, If i had left my headphone plugged into my front panel jack and when I restart my computer, the headphone icon keeps flickering saying its plugged and unplugged constantly when it is in fact plugged in. I had tinker around a little bit and I have no idea how to fix this problem now. Its going bad to worse as it unplugs itself randomly now. I'm trying to go for a full reinstall of my sound drivers.

A:Headphones Plugging and Unplugging constantly bug

Have you tried a different headphone? Maybe the headphone and not the PC or headphone jack.

If not the headphone, check the connection from the front panel at the motherboard, May be a bad connection there. Reseat (unplug then plug back in) the connector at the motherboard. If it still has problems I would suspect the front panel headphone jack, or the wiring.

Hello, I've noticed that my computer crashes everytime i unplug or i plug in and USB drive. Today I bought a new USB mouse and when I connected it no crashes were seen, but when my pc installed the last driver, the BSoD appeared once again. I'm using Win7 64b and I really don't know what can I do, I've tried everything like uninstalling all USB drivers and recreate the INFCACHE.1 file, but still nothing. What can I do to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

A:BSoD when plugging/unplugging USB and when installing USB drivers

1) Does it happen with all usb devices or only the mouse?
 
2) Does it happen with all usb ports?
 
3) Does it happen in safe mode?
 
4) Look in device manager - are there any yellow or red symblos?
 
5) Download and install the newest chipset driver for your system. If it's a laptop, get it from the website of your laptop manufacturer. If it's a desktop, you can get it from either the desktop or the mobo manufacturer's website.
 
6) Look for a bios update.

Hi all,

I'm at a dorm room with cable internet. It usually works fine, but now if I unplug it, then plug it back, the computer doesn't connect to the internet anymore. Sometimes it says it's acquiring network address, but that doesn't change. The computer connects to the internet fine if I turned on the computer with the cable already plugged in.

Another computer doesn't have this problem with the same cable, always able to connect after being unplugged/plugged. Both computers are on Win XP.

I suspect the Windows firewall has something to do with it, if only because it is turned on the the problematic computer, and not on the other one. I couldn't turn it off, however, because it doesn't let me open up Windows Firewall Settings, giving me the message that the "associated service is not running" and whether or not I could like to start it. If I click "Yes", it simply says it "cannot open Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing service".

Please let me know what the problem might be and what i can try to get it working again. I hope I haven't given too much useless information.. haha. Thanks!

In the System Sounds, there is an option for device connect or disconnect. This will probably do what you want. You will have to assign a sound for those functions.

Do the speakers still work after you have unattached /reattached the mic?

Presuming you are running Windows (as you haven't specified)

Open control panel, then open Sound (depending on your OS and view options you may need to click on the Hardware and Sound option first or similar)

In the sound window, click on the Recording tab.

With the Mic attached how many devices do you see?

Is the Mic on your headset set as Default?

If you remove the mic and reattach (with the sound window open) does the mic get recognised and show back up in this list?

Does it remain as default / enabled?

I have a Dell Vostro 1400 running Vista Home Basic and have had two periods in the laptop's existence where it would mysteriously freeze. You could see everything on the screen, and the power lights were on, but it would not respond except to a hard reboot by holding the power butting down for 5 seconds.

I am going through one of those periods now, and have discovered that the problem happens when I am either plugging or unplugging the AC power adapter, but don't know why. I have been all over the web for a solution, and while it does seem I am not alone with this problem, I have not read a sensible solution yet. My favorite bad answer is "don't unplug your laptop when it's on."

So, does anyone know what it could be? I wanted to look at system logs, and so went into the Event Viewer not even sure what to look for, but didn't see anything that looked like a likely culprit. Please help!

A:laptop freezes when plugging and unplugging AC power adapter

being a member of the Dell Community Forum, I looked there and found this

A lot things happen in Windows when inserting the AC power adapter.

To check if it's a classic CPU lock-up: repeatedly press capslock. If the capslock light doesn't change, there's no live in there.

Assuming the CPU is locked up: It's possible there's a log entry in the system log just before the AC power adapter is inserted. These entries give clues where to look, just before things went sour.

Next try to reproduce it in Safe Mode (press F8 when Windows start) If it's also in Safe Mode - try running an alternative OS (no need to install)

If the problem also shows up here - most likely it's a hardware issue.

Otherwise it's a windows issue - might be driver related.

the "alternate OS thing is a link on the forum web site. Click here to go to that site.

A:Laptop turning off when plugging or unplugging in charging cord

Hi DNGUYEN2252,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system?
Does the adapter led stay on and stable or does it go off when connected to the system?
Disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then try connecting with the adapter only / battery only.
I would first suggest you to try with another power adapter. The current one in use might be shorting the system and hence the system powers off.
If another adapter works fine, then replace the adapter. If the other adapter  also exhibits the same behavior, then replace the DC port - this is the part you would need - http://bit.ly/2kZR8go
If nothing works, I would suspect a faulty motherboard. 
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ

I have a weird problem with my computer.....a little background:
I didn't turn the computer on for a LONG time....perhaps a year, so one day, I decided to boot it up and it won't boot past the post! So I replaced the MB battery, checked the power supply, replaced the memory...and it booted. But then, I turn it off, and it won't boot again...same problem with it not booting past the mem. post. So being that it was an old computer, I figured I'd just build myself a new machine and use the hard drive as a slave. There are programs on the drive that I want to use that I cannot replace! Well, I tried doing that, but the new computer won't see the drive....it won't even boot with it plugged in. So....

I take the hard drive to another machine that I know works fine, and it boots. Problem solved....so I thought. I turn it off, and try and turn it back on.....nothing.....no beeps, no post....nothing. So I tried changing the power supply, and plug all back in, and it boots. Turn it off, nothing. Long story short, if I unplug the motherboard power cord from the board, and plug it back in, it boots, but if I turn it off, I have to repeat the motherboard plug thing to get it to boot again. I have had the drive checked for viruses, and it's clean.

My Corsair RM650i came with these two cables that I believe both are the link connectors that attach to motherboard. With the software I will be able to monitor performance, control fan speed from desktop and toggle single rail or multi rail (whatever that is). It says to use the USB header cable and connect to motherboard and other end to PSU, but the other cable states that IT'S the link connector in the manual?? Huh!?! Plus I don't have any tiny connector on my board. Are these cables used for the same thing? Also, I have 2 USB 2.0 ports on board. One is a 1112 and the other is 1314, which do I connect it to or does it matter? The motherboard (Asus Z170M-E D3) warns not to connect a 1394 cable into one of these ports... is that what this cable is?
So Confused!!!

Hi. The cable on the left has a usb header which you plug in to the motherboards spare connector and the other end goes into the pump unit. The one on the right provides power to the pump unit. I've found the manual here.

Thanks for help.
 

A:Corsair cx500 SO MANY CABLES?

If you can't roll up the unused cables and/or tie them out of the way, the best solution I've found is to use a modular PSU such as http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010
I'm not recommending that particular PSU, it's just an example. It'll allow you to only install the cables you need. If the PSU you are using is new, maybe you can return it.
I wouldn't recommend trying to remove cables by disassembling the PSU. A new PSU is a lot cheaper than a new PC.

Hi all, I've been through 3 harddisks now on my 3 year old system(8800 gt, 4 gb ram, e8400). Every (aprox) 6 months my harddisk dies(I think). On boot the bios will only read my two dvd drives, then proceed to "checking ide drives" and check for abnormally long time, and finally the nvidia boot agent fails to boot and I get some mac adress showing up in bios before I have to shut it down. What can be the cause to all my dying hdd's?

I tried:
Replugging the sata cable and try different slots.
Checking if there is any hdd in under the voltage perimeters on bios and I can't seem to find my hdd anywhere!
Can a faulty sata wire even be the cause?
Help! Thanks

I just bought a Corsair M60 gaming mouse. I installed both the updated firmware and the drivers for the mouse and played a few rounds of Medal of Honor: Warfigher on multiplayer. The mouse performed pretty good. I played for a good three hours without a problem. I then shut down to attend to something away from my PC.

When I rebooted my PC two hours later, the USB 3.0 ports in the rear hub of my setup -- where the M60 was plugged -- were no longer working. The mouse was unresponsive. I did a hard shut down, plugged the mouse into a USB port in the front panel, then boot my PC into Windows. The mouse worked, but the ports in rear USB 3.0 hub remained unresponsive. So I did the "unplug the power cord, wait five minutes then reboot " band aid solution, which -- as expected -- worked. Windows installed its generic mouse drivers. I'm using those now.

I've uninstalled the M60 driver for now, but have kept the firmware update intact. I would really like to be able to use the driver's features. But I'm worried that I might run into the same issue again and be forced into another hard reset.

What could have caused the problem? I know it's a lot to ask, but I'd like to first hear your advice and inputs, and perhaps learn more about this issue, before I try re-installing the Corsair drivers.

I've got an Asus P9X79 Pro motherboard. As mentioned, the M60 is plugged into a rear USB 3.0 port. Here are the specs for the mouse.

Hi I've been using my X220i for the last 3 years or so and decided to upgrade to an i7 X230 a few days ago. After a few days of no problems, using the same charger I've been using on my X220 (the 90w slim travel charger) I plugged it in to charge while the laptop was powered on. The laptop powered off instantly and now it will not power on again. There are no status lights visible and nothing happens when I plug it in. I have done all the steps of removing the battery and pressing the power button etc and on putting the battery back in the fingerprint sensor light was flickering orange - it is now back to no signs of life at all again other than the left side of the palmrest gets hot when I insert the battery. I am strongly suspecting a fault with the charger fried the motherboard when I plugged it in but am wondering if anyone else has any suggestions before i try to make a claim within my remaining 1 week of warranty. Thnaks

I can only say that the two sticks of value select memory I used to have in my computer both went bad. I switched over to crucial with no problems. I imagine with corsair the quality is high also. It just goes to say, you get what you pay for.

For the first time ,this problem occurred and I would like to know the reason behind this.

I use my system mainly for gaming and multitasking.When I was out of station,my brother used PC for internet only(Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer,no other programs). It was working perfectly for the first four days with his low usage(not utilizing computer's full potential). Then the strange thing occurred. After installing new version of Mozilla Firefox,computer became slow.Thinking about virus,he performed quick scan in Malwarebytes and suddenly computer became hang and he had to restart PC forcefully and when restarted,there were no display,only power light of CPU lighted and the hard disk light was not blinking.
Then when I returned,I solved this issue just by taking off one ram stick and booted.It was working fine.Finally I put the stick again and it was working again without any issues.

What may be the cause and how I can prevent such problems in future?Does low utilization on a system with high specs affect the system's performance or any other factors?

A:No display,works after reseating the RAM

Is this system very new? If the parts are under a year you might have discovered a bad part. Run MemTest86+ on the system to see if you have a RAM issue.

Hi guys, I hope someone can help me. So today I upgraded the ram and ssd in my hp laptop dv6 7XXXez from 2012. Now it only boots after reseating ram and hard resetting the laptop. When it boots, it runs just fine. I can even restart it without problems, but after a shutdown, I have to reseat the ram again and do a hard reset. This kinda sucks. I can't find people with the same problem. Maybe you guys can help me?What I tried so far:resetted the bios (it's also the newest version there is)tried the old ram and hddwithout a hdd/ssddriver updateswindows 7 vs windows 10

I purchased a new CPU, motherboard and PSU after my old power unit exploded. After I had inserted all the new components, the PC would power up, but there was no signal on the monitor. After trying everything suggested to me online, I followed someone's advice to remove one RAM stick. The monitor would then display a black screen, but would not show the "no signal" message. After reseating the RAM and screwing in all of the motherboard standoffs, the PC now refuses to power up even the fans. I've tried resetting the battery, shorting the power switch, even swapping back to my old power supply and removing all components other than the CPU and PSU. Nothing happens other than the occasional twitching of the fans when I press the On button. I need help desperately because this problem is too specific for any of the Google search results I've seen. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

So after having software problems and posting it in the BSOD crashes and Debugging forum, I encountered a new hardware problem, so I'v been redirected to this forum for further assistance. The following link is my original thread:

Bsod after windows 8.1 pro reinstall

Also, here is my last post from that thead:






Okay so I did as you said, checked every connector and reseating the heatsink/fan of the CPU. I also moved the case fan from the bottom front (where it was when I got the case) to the top, at the back. I turned it around so it will suck the hot air out of the case.

But now I've got a new problem: when I connected my PC to my monitor via DVI, I didn't get a signal... Sometimes the monitor would light up a little but then it went dark again. I tested it on my graphic card and onboard, both not working. I also tested a TV on HDMI, again onboard and on the graphics card, but nevertheless it didn't work.
Then I checked inside the case during startup, and all the fans and leds were working. I also heard a beep, but I'm not sure if that's the particular startup beep or something else, because when I restarted the PC without the onboard speaker connected, I still heard a beep... Also, when I open de DVD drive, it closes right away, and the case fan seems to not spin on the right speed and sometimes even really slow.

I'm pretty sure It hasn't anything to do with my PSU, because I replaced that recently. I tested the RAM and HDD/SSD without i... Read more

A:No signal after reseating CPU fan/heat sink

When you reseated the CPU fan did you clean off the old thermal past and apply new past?. If yes, were you careful not to apply too much? CPU fan plugged back into the correct connector? On some motherboards, fi the CPU fan fails it will not boot up. This is to prevent damage to the CPU. This can also happen if the motherboard cannot detect the fan speed. The plug not connected properly of plugged into the wrong header on the motherboard can cause that. Or the fan not spinning at all because its blocked by something.

Usually I build amds and use artic silver.
But this time I needed a p4 for the hyperthreading and did not use thermal paste as I thought it was unnecessary.
Because of a dead MB I had to remove the cooler from the cpu. I was suprised to find that there was only a little trace of black gunk on the P4 chip in one area.
Should I use artic silver in reseating the cooler and if so how should I clean the chip and cooler?
 

A:reseating P4 cooler and thermal paste

Definitely. Clean the core with wd40 followed by alcohol on a cotton swab. Always use either thermal paste or a pad, never go without.
