Kandalf LCS liquid not going through the loop

I just installed the hardware in the kandolf case and everything seems fine except that the liquid is not going all the way through the loop. The pump seems to be working because I have a flow meter in between the pump and the cpu waterblock. The flow meter would move a little bit upon system startup but would not cycle like it should. Similarly, the flow meter would move a bit upon system shut down. Do I have a defective pump? I touched the pump when it's operating and it doesn't seem to be vibrating like the manual says it should. Is it the pump or did I do a poor job putting it together? I followed the instruction......please help. I see a large bubble in the tube and it does not move. I added fluid but the bubble does not move. Fluid not moving in tubes

This is most likely an issue with your pump or the water pressure in the loop. Sometimes gravity or a short-circuit in the plumbing can cause water to stall at certain points.

If the pump motor is not vibrating, then that's an immediate indication that your pump is either defective or you have not installed it correctly.

Check to make sure it's got power, water, and sufficient grip on the tubes. If these are all fine, look at getting a replacement for your pump.

How do you replace the LCS screen for the LG BL40?

To remove LCS screen

That's how u remove the LCS Screen. buy the LCS replacement screen fro amazon or eBay, they run for about $25-$30, and there u go, careful that u don't damage any of the circuit boards though, be gentle and don't pull/tugg so hard, try to find magnifying glass and do it under a bright light so u can see everything clearly and make sure u don't loose the screws:)

I am stuck in the boot up process with the option

Look at the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) LED light...
Is it a steady red? Put your ear to the computer case. Do you hear a repeating clicking sound?
You should be able to press [F10] to get out of the BIOS Setup. If not, it may be a loose hard drive cable (open up the PC) or a failing Hard drive (replace).

Best operating system for new build?

Either Windows XP or Vista 64 bit edition, depending on what you like...I won't get into the xp vs. vista battle here lol. The 64 bit operating systems can see all of your memory, with the 32 bit OS's, you're limited to around 3 or so gigs. Do note, that there may be some incompatibilities with a 64 bit operating system, though most programs should run fine.

I solved my problem, turns out my laptop has the Atheros card, not the suggested Intel card. I found a driver for Atheros from a different Acer Aspire model, and it seems to work fine.

Kandalf LCS liquid not going through the loop

Everyone-I had this same problem, and I realize this thread is a couple years old now, but for anyone reading this from now on-
YOUR PUMP IS FINE. When you first go to prime the system you are getting air trapped, most likely in the radiator where you can't see, and gravity is stopping it from clearing out. You most likely have the case upright for adding more liquid. Once you've added all you can: TURN THE CASE ON ITS SIDE. This will put the tank reservoir higher than everything and the liquid will push through and the air will end up here as it should. Once you hear it sucking, turn it off, pull it up right, add more liquid. Rinse and repeat til all bubbles are gone and all sucking sounds cease.
I fought this for a whole afternoon. Threads all over the internet said nothing, til I looked on the reviews on newegg. God bless those guys, about 3 different people said to try this and it worked like a charm. Thermaltake should pull their heads out of their butts and put this in the manual.

Powerswitch bay stuck!

you have to take the front of the case off. Every case is different, there may be clips you have to push in to release the front or there may be screws. once the front is off look for the power switch and glue it back into the switch slot. originally it was probably glued in with hot glue.
