Question about RaidMax (ATX-612WBP) ATX Mid-Tower Case

1 Answer

Raidmax 500w power slowly died, then wont turn back on.

I had my computer off, surge protector off and everything unplugged for 3 days when I got home from my trip I plugged it all back in turned my computer on and did my usual routine, went on facebook, myspace, then as browsed facebook and clicked a link to my friends profile my comp slowed then the screen and mouse went out, I know my mouse went dead because its a laser and the light went out, I couldnt turn caps on or off on my keyboard. Then after about 15 seconds it died. and it wouldnt turn back on, when I press power nothing happens. When I unplug it then replug it in, and then press power, all the blue lights come on for about .5 seconds and the fan does about a fourth of a rotation then it turns off again.

Im not sure why its doing this, I highly doubt its a virus. The mother board light is on. Its a raidmax smilodon, im running vista and its a 500w power supply, all standard things with the raidmax smilodon, Ive had the computer witth zero problems for months now, and ive gone away and unplugged it all many times before this without this happening. Any help please?

1.-Your CPU fan is working?

2.-Your Power supply fan is working?

If not and following your description I think that you have to replace your power supply.

If you have the light on in the motherboard doesn't mean that your power supply is good.

Check the first to points above and if 1 and 2 are not working

Replace your power supply.

Let me know how it is going!

Computer wont turn on


Make sure the tower is getting power. There will be a green light on the back of the tower where the power cord goes. Make sure the cord is snug and that it is securely plugged in to your power source - I'm hoping it is a power surge strip and in which case, make sure the surge strip didn't get unplugged or turned off. If you have it plugged directly in to the wall then make sure that outlet has power by plugging something else in to it that you know works. After doing all of this, make check to see if there is a light on the back of your pc. If not, unplug the power from the back of the tower, wait 30 seconds at least, and then plug it back in. Hit the power button on the front just once, if it doesn't power up, press and hold the button in for a 2 seconds and release. If that doesn't work, your power supply may have gone bad. That happens from time to time. Good luck, hope this helps!

Installed a GA H55M USB3 motherboard in a Raidmax Tornado case. When I go to turn it on their is power for about for about a 1sec and the fans turn a couple of times and a couple of seconds later their is...


I once had something similar happen to me. Triple check to see that all connections are secure to the motherboard - a loose 20 pin ATX cable was the culprit in my case.
Hope that helps. Good luck!

Raidmax Sirius case not turning on


Recheck the wiring. Make sure the fans are all plugged into the proper place. Then try reseating the RAM, video card, & cpu. Make sure you have applied a good thermal paste between cpu & heatsink as overheating can cause the system not to boot. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

The on/off connector is the power labelled one. The one thing you may have to do is (if you have'nt already)connect the power connector from the PSU to the processor power supply, close by to it as it may not just run off the motherboard ZIF socket for it's power up.
