Question about Computer Cases

Starting computer of a new build

I am upgrading the case and power supply of my HP a6200N. When I turn on the computer, the LED's and fans work for a quick second then stop (no power). This is my first build/rebuild. The only thing I am keeping from the HP is the motherboard, DVD burner and hardrive. I am also installing a GaForce 8600GT. The bought the case and power supply to match the microATX motherboard.

    I have the same problem posted. I power up, the power comes on for a few seconds... meaning that the fans run on the box and the CPU and the signal to video is on, then power shuts off. Note: This happened when I was using the computer and someone walked up to the pc and touched the front of the case. I heard a static discharge sound and everything powered off. I'm hoping this is a problem with the switch and NOT the motherboard.

What the power supply is compatible to the motherboard gigabyte z77x- ud3h


Most power supplies will work. Only the wattage is of concern. If you have upgraded your computer by adding another hard drive or an extra cooling fan or any other component, don't forget to upgrade the power supply to cover the added power needed by these items.

You need to look in the handbook that cam with your motherboard for a section labeled 'Connectors' or possibly 'Connections'. There will be one USB 2.0 type prong on the motherboard that is designated for case connections [Power LED, mini-speaker, etc.]. The manual for the motherboard will indicate what order and where on the motherboard your connectors should go.
Good luck with your build. :]

Fan is not moving, front panel led is red


If your computer will nor start and the system fans do not turn on and stay on when you power on your PC, then either the power supply has failed, a component connected to your motherboard has failed or the motherboard itself is defective .
Power supplies require a "power good" signal back from the motherboard before they will operate.. In order to test a power supply, you need a PC power supply tester. Without one, you will either have to take you power supply to a PC technician and have him test it or install a known good power supply in your computer.

Fan not lightning up


there should be 3/4 small led (light emitting diodes) on the inner of the fan check the integrity of the solder on the wire to this led strip if there are any breaks in this then it can be re soldered.

if the fan is part of the PSU (power supply uinit then consult your local pc repair shop do not open the PSU.

If its just a case fan it would prob be easyer just to replace the fan.

hope this helps

Power failure


This is a power supply issue. Try borrowing a power supply to test first. Then buy a new one and replace.
