The 270 is a **** shell type case. On the top is a sort of dog bone gray piece, at the end is a black oblong, push down on this while gently pulling the back of the computer apart. There is another of these black oblong releases on the bottom. you need to do both. It will open up like a book, sorta cool once you get it open.

There has to be a way to open the tower. Can you tell us the manufacturer of the PC you are referring to? If there's not the standard screws on the back of the case to take off the side, there must be a release button to pull the tower up, or something to that effect.

Video signal absent


This sounds as if your video card is not seated. Your vidoe card is where the monitor connect to the tower. If you can open the tower locate the video card and check to see that it is seated in the slot firmly. Mkae sure to diconnect the power supply before opening the tower.

Good luck!

How to install a usb pci card to a desktop case computer, it is not a tower. please answer. thank you


Can you please specify what model is your device. Usually its the same as with tower type cases, its just that tower are stand in vertically. You need to purchase Add-on PCI card for USB, and you also need to check if your computer has PCI slot for the add-on card.

I have no sound can you help on this


Hi!

You never mentioned if you are using a built in on your motherboard or a sound card hardware...

Anyways... If you are using a built in sound card, make sure it is enable on your CMOS/BIOS setup.. And you have installed the right driver for your sound card from the cd driver of your motherboard...

And if you are using a pci sound card, please check if its properly seated on the motherboard (better if you disconnect the sound card from the motherboard... clean its contact point... and insert it properly on the motherboard)...See the model of your sound card... download the latest driver from the internet and install it.
If this still did not work, better check on the device manager if the sound card is properly installed, if its not it should have a yellow question mark attached to the sound/multimedia devices..

You can also check if windows xp keeps on detecting windows compatible sound driver..how? first, shutdown your computer.. disconnect your sound card from the motherboard...turn on computer..Right click on My Computer and click properties...Select Hardware and click Device Manager...on the View menu click devices by type...double click the "sound, video and game controllers"....if you don't see from the list the model of your sound card, then try disabling or uninstalling the listed audi driver and or multimedia devices..shutdown your computer..

Now connect your sound card to your motherboard.. turn on the computer..System will detect and add new hardware for your sound card.... install the driver... restart your computer and hear if it makes a log on sounds..

Hope this instruction help you.


Much appreciated if you rate this solution.. thanks..
