Question about Aspire Digital Aspire X-Navigator, Silver-Black Metal case, 450W, w/window (ATXA9NWAL)

My five fans stopped working

I was on the computer when it just shut completely off. I manually turned it back on but thought it wasn't working because it was so quite. That's when I noticed none of my 5 fans worked. My power fan works and of course so does my cpu. At first the computer kept shutting off after so long. I went into the bios and changed it back to default settings and it has not shut off since. My problem is I don't know why the fans stopped or how to fix it? I tried going into the tower and try to reconnect the fan wires but now I don't even have the lcd for the front hooked up right and I can't find any manuals to see how to hook up all these wires. Can somebody help? I'm not sure how serious of a problem this is and if I can just use my computer as it is since I'm not a serious gamer and I really don't need so many fans.

As long as the CPU fan is operational your OK - the land in the power supply for the 12VDC fan voltage probably got hot and has an intermittent connection. You could try to connect the fans to another power supply connector - but as far as the computer itself you should be OK

Looking for a manual for a Chenbro 84H220910-074 drive cage. I bouoght 3, and there was no manual with any of them. Nothing on thier site, and no response from thier tech support.


this is from a newegg feedback. the manual is not on their site but according to this guy comments here it is to configure

Pros: It works.
Find documentation here:
http://usa.chenbro.com/corporatesite/service_download_result.php?type=pro&mk=50&sk=
There are extensive connections for fans, alarms and RAID cards (activity & error lights) . Configurable 'high temp' and fan alarms.

Cons: Documentation VERY hard to find.

For the drive trays, Blue power indicator, and green activity light are passed from back-plane to front of drive tray with 'light pipes'. The blue is too bright and bleeds into the green, making it difficult to see the activity lights.

Also, both power connectors need juice or the alarm on the tray goes off. Since I am not using redundant power supplies, I eventually used a 'Y' chord to apply power to both inputs. Not a big deal, just took a while to figure out why the alarm wouldn't ******* (this before I found the documentation mentioned above).

Other Thoughts: The cooling fan is LOUD. I'll look for a more quiet one in the future.

When I turn on my computer, the only thing that works are a couple of fans. The screen remains completely blank. I have tried another screen but no joy. Any ideas?


One bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

Ultra m923 mid-tower case won't stop beeping


The problem is the board on the case's display. It has temp alarms for your components(video card, hdd, cpu), there are temp probes for you to set so you can monitor these temps. However the board that controls these functions, or at least mine and many others I have read about, is defective. It will change display constantly and sometimes have garbage display. It is setting its own limits for what is considered a hi temperature. The limit it has set for one of your components is < room temperature so it thinks you are having an overheating problem. You can manually set the limit for overheat and it will fix it for a while, but it will prob happen again.

Monitor shuts off of the computer then stays on then goes off .


Does it shut off with absolutely no warning sounds whatsoever?

Do you ever hear a faint PC beeper alarm that kinda sounds like a ambulance siren (you know... kinda like a WEEEE. ORRRRR... WEEEE... ORRRR)

My main suspect at this stage is OVERTEMP (you are overheating the CPU).

Possible Causes: Recently UPGRADED components (especially VIDEO)

Build up of dust in Case and CPU heatsink and GPU heatsink or CPU fan has failed or one or some case fans have failed.

Do you know how to check your CPU temp in BIOS? If it happens again check it out.... greater than 90 degrees is usually bad.

Check all your fans are spinning, check you don't have 'caked up' dust on your heatsinks.

If you have recently upgraded a major component that is dumping heat into you case... investigate a new case fan to extract this heat (cheapest option) or you may want to pick up an aftermarket CPU heatsink and fan (Thermalright FTW!!!!!!!)

Raidmax Sirius mid-tower case fan alarm


Here are some solutions:
1. Try to use some silicon oil in fan apertures to decrease rub
2. Try to manually (look for a mainboard's service software settings) decrease rotation speed if available
3. Less recomended: disconnect fan cable from mainboard and don't stress your computer (try not to overheat, - work with software that uses less resources) and buy a new one when available

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


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!

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Flashing Lights when powered down


The flashing LED is because your system is in "sleep" mode. By default windows Vista puts your computer in sleep. What this means is it doesn't shutdown the power completely it leaves a little going through certain computer components (more specifically the ram) to speed up the boot time when the power button is pressed again.

In XP a the default shutdown scheme is a complete shutdown where power is turned off after the shutdown process is done. If you are using XP you are putting your computer to sleep when shutting down.

As for the boot problem. Newer motherboards have an LED on the actual board to indicate that it is receiving power. If it is of either the power supply switch (at the back of the case) if off or the motherboard connection is loose and the shaking makes it fall into place. (Shaking is usually not necessary and indicates a problem...)

There are a few possibilities I can deduct from your description:
  • the connection from your power supply to your motherboard isn't properly seated and is causing this
  • the power supply switch (not the case switch) is being  turned off and results in the computer taking a few seconds before the internal LED become solid
  • ... the dreaded sign that the power supply is failing and is on it's last legs...
My suggestion is to check all connections and if that doesn't work borrow a power supply from a friend and swap them to see if it boots properly.

(If a friends with a spare power supply isn't an option a local PC repair shop should be able to help you out... but probably for a fee...)
