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.)


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!

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.

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 recently decided to use a case that i had redone. i took the components out of an old working system just to use the new case. i added a new ps. when i went to boot nothing happened. none of the board fans spun or anything. the hd was spinning and the fans connected to ps worked but nothing from mobo. i was stumped so i gave a friend the case and a new mobo and i checked that it worked before i gave it to him by setting it outside of case on cardboard and putting power to it. but when he put the mobo in case he had nothing. any suggestions? could it be grounding out and giving me a dead mobo?

Are you using the spacers that come with the case when you fit the mobo? Seems like there's a short somewhere.

I purchased an ASUS K8U-X motherboard, and a random case from mwave.com. The motherboard is too big for the case. Even if I were to remove the power supply (sorry if this isn't the correct terminology) when I line up the four slots at the bottom the "top" of the motherboard (place where the keyboard, monitor, etc plugs in) extends up into the area where the power supply would go. However when I went to a local compusa and glanced at the cases they had for sale, it appeared I would have the same problem with all of them. I didn't have the original with me to compare, but to my untrained eye they all appeared about the same.

Am I overlooking something obvious that would make it fit (I'll try to post some digital pictures later tonight)? Or does ASUS have specific cases required for its motherboards? Or is it something else completely.

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Motherboard and case

The ASUS K8U-X is a regular ATX size motherboard, all you need is a Mid or Full ATX case for it. A Mini or Micro ATX, or BTX case wouldn't work as they'd be too small. With some cases the power supply sits above the top of the motherboard while on others the top of the power supply and the top of motherboard are at the same level so from the outside it may look too small.

Also don't line up the baord by the slots, line it up by the I/O panel(the panel with all the connectors on it). The top slot on the case doesn't always line up with the top slot on the motherbaord.

A:instaling a motherboard to a case

Sounds like you have som problems....or will have problems. There should be no bending of the motherboard if it is installed correctly. Is the case the correct size for a full ATX motherboard? There are metal or plastic standoffs that screw into the backplane and in turn the motherboard screws to those. They have to be placed properly and only under the holes that align with the ones on the motherboard. The drive settings depend on how you want to connect them to the motherboard. If they are on the same cable set them as master and slave. If they are on seperate cables set each one as master or in the casse of the hard drive as a stand alone drive. It does matter the way you connect the LED connectors since LED's are polarity sensitive. Go by what the motherboard manual syas, not the case.

A:Motherboard and Case Question

Read other 6 answers

Hey All,

This should be an easy question. I'm installing a motherboard into a case. The case has these bumps that align with screw holes in the motherboard. The case came with 1 plastic spacer, and 6 plastic plugs for the bumps. However, the plugs are only for when the metal bumps aren't align with the motherboard.

So the question is... will the contact between the metal bumps and the motherboard be okay? Do new motherboards have an area around the screw that is safe from shorting out the board?

I guess I should add that the case didn't come with great instructions. It just says to plug up any raised push-outs that aren't being attached to mobo. So it seems to imply you put the board onto the push-out bumps.

Thanks all! Hope that makes sense. Wanna finish building this system tonight.

A:Installing Motherboard in Case

Hey man,
I know the feeling of getting a new case and wanting everything to work out okay. First off, the motherboard isnt supposed to touch these metal bumps directly because yes, this could cause problems. Put plugs in the bumps, and then screw down the parts that align with the holes in your motherboard. By the way, what kind of case do you have? Mines a X-Dreamer II and I just plugged up the bumps (it seemed to work for me).
Hope this helps, good luck with your new case,

A:Connecting Motherboard to Case

It's actually on page 22. It's fairly straight forward. The illustrations gives you the pin numbers, even numbers on top and odd along the bottom. The chart tells you which front panel connector goes to which pair of pins. Note that there is a positive and negative side. If they aren't marked on the connector itself, the negative side is usually the white or black wire.

The LEDs are the only ones that really matter which is positive and negative. The switches don't really matter.

A:Motherboard / case compatible?

Dell stuff is proprietary ie made to dell's specs and NOT industry standard specs. While you can sometimes get a standard type mb to fit a dell case, you usually have to do at least some engineering to make it work.

In short if you are going to use a standard mb [which you may have already fried by attempting to use a dell case] get a regular atx type case.

At this point, I would pull the board out of the case and attempt an out of the case build to see if you damaged the board.

Wanted to pick the collective minds of you all and ask if I can put a smaller motherboard than the original in this HP OEM case? I read that someone else did in another thread I Googled, but the thing is that the standoffs wouldn't line up I believe so I don't know how he did it. The original is 9.6 x 9.1 and the replacement would be 9.0 x 7.8 inches. Thx all.

A:Can I put a smaller motherboard in my OEM case?

Basically OEM means that your Windows version will not work (either due to restore image, or just on legalities) by changing the proprietary OEM Motherboard

And none of the support or drivers will work again, ie from here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic100655.html

You are much more safer and wiser to leave it standard, and then sell it complete, and build your own computer (if you want)

Don't change manufacture OEM hardware (update Ram and alike is ok, but not Motherboard)

Also the front wires may not connect to a new motherboard and the motherboard plate may not align up

Hey guys,

Also, what power supply would you recommend?

I'm about to upgrade a few of the older systems here at the office and have a question about compatibility between motherboards and cases. Will any ATX motherboard fit into an ATX form factor case? Or are there other things to take into consideration?

I'm hoping I can swap out the motherboard and processor in these systems without having to replace any of the other hardware. Currently, they're all running 1.7Ghz P4s, looking to upgrade to around 2.6Ghz P4s or possibly comparable Athlons. Anything else I should keep in mind before doing this?

A:Motherboard/Case Compatibility

Unless you have a Dell case or another manufacturer who uses a proprietary set up an ATX MB should fit any ATX case. With a new motherboard you may or may not be able to re use your RAM. If you have a separate video card that could be a problem depending how old you present system is.

Speaker Connector: (17)+5V(RED), (18)GND, (19)GND, (20)SPKR

Hello, i've been building my first computer and I'm stuck again. My motherboard just doesnt seem to fit into the case.

I am using

- Antec nine hundred + EA650 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 650w Power supply
- GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

The problem is that the back panel connectors are bumping into the edge of the case, and I need about half an inch more to get it on the risers. What do I do?

A:Motherboard not fitting into case?
