If you are talking about the on board speaker not working these are probably the wires for it. Get a magnifying glass and see if any of the pins are marked "spkr" or something similar to that. That would be where the wires go.

Hey how do you connect the power supply in a Chenbro RM22300 Case? Which one of the coloured cords goes to which plug on the psu? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also this is for an Australian Power...

IMHO it doesn't matter if it is an Australian PSU. (Power Supply Unit)

The only thing that would change from country to country, is the AC electricity coming in.

Australia uses 220 Volts at 50 Hertz (Hertz stands for Cycles per Second)
Europe uses 220 Volts at 50 Hertz
USA uses 120 Volts at 60 Hertz
Japan uses 100 Volts at 50 Hertz

The PSU converts the AC electricity into DC electricity.
The DC voltage, and amperage is very small.

Now to the PSU and the Chenbro RM22300

Inside the chassis is a Chassis Management Board.
(It is a PCB
Printed Circuit Board)

Orient your view of the CMB (Chassis Management Board), with the blue dip switch to the bottom.
{Dip Switch is a rectangular blue block with 10 white dip switches }

To the right, and situated towards the bottom are two white Molex connectors.

(Actually they are each a 4-pin standard Peripheral power connector. Molex is a misnomer. It is the first company to produce a plug with this configuration. Sort of like calling an open-end adjustable wrench, a Crescent wrench)

This gives you more information on the 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable,

{The Red wire is 5 Volts DC
The Yellow wire is 12 Volts DC
The two Black wires are Ground wires.

Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC }

There should be two 4-pin standard Peripheral power cables coming from the PSU.
They plug into the two white connectors mentioned above.

(The shape of the plug, and the connector on the CMB, will only allow the plug to be plugged in, in one direction)

There should also be a Purple cable.

The Purple cable plugs into JP1.

Looking at the CMB as stated above, there are two square looking connectors to the right of the board.
The one at the top is JP1.
(The one under JP1 is JM1)

I would also like you to have the User Manual.
Download it from Chenbro Support,

On this page left-click on the blue - DOWNLOAD - to the right of -
RM22300 - CMB User Manual for Windows - 899.8KB - 2010-07-13

This is a PDF file. {The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files}

After you click on the above link it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page will come up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.
{Watch the download progress bar}

There is a way to save a copy of this file to your computer. If you are not aware of how to perform
this, and would like to, please post in a Comment.

{This way you will not have to download again.
You will also be able to burn a copy off to a CD, and have it for safekeeping.
You can also delete it from the computer you downloaded it on, and save Harddrive space }

No keyboard, no display, doesnt sound like computer boot ups

firs remove the cover and remove the 24 pin conected to the motherboard from the smps you will also see another 4pin conector conected to your motherboard from the smps remove them to then short the pin green and bleck in the 24 pin connector and see wether the smps fan is working if working coneect the 24 pin to the motherboard leave the 4 pin aside and switch on the computer if the processor fan is working switch of the computer and connect the four pin conector to the motherboard and switch on the computer if the processor fan is not working then you have problem with the motherboard

Message "Enter password to unlock the system" appears Before I get into windows

There is either a BIOS password, or hard drive password set. The only way to get in is by either using the correct password, OR, you must rest the BIOS.

Here is how to reset the BIOS. Turn the computer off. Open the case. Look on the mother board for a jumper marked JP1 on the board. It will have a black jumper that is either, on one of 2 pins, or on 2 of 3 pins. In any case, one pin will not be in the jumper.

If you have 2 pins, and the jumper is only on one of them, Put the jumper on both of a second, then put it back the way it was.

If you have 3 pins, and the jumper is on 2 of them. The 3 pins are in line. So take the jumper off and put it is on the pin that was not in the jumper, and the center pin for a second, then back the way it was.

The reset can also be a small dip switch which will also be marked JP1. If it is a dip switch, just switch it one way, then back the way it was.

This will reset the bios. **IMPORTANT** When you do this, it basically shorts the battery out causing the BIOS to loose its memory. That is how it resets. You must return it to the way it was before turning the computer back on or it will not boot.

Good luck.

Ok new problem My Compaq is still beeping and now the screem stay

Hi Mate

Unless you have just added a new harware component this is realy bad news. If you have remove whatever it is and see if you can't get the system to boot.

Sounds very much like the MB has failed, probably due to a power spike. If the unit is still under warranty it would be worth trying to make a warranty claim otherwize most home and contents insurance cover this type of damage.

If you realy want to trouble shoot yourself and see wether it is the MB crack the case and pull everything bar the cpu, ram and vga, flash JP1 or BIOS/CMOS jumper and see wether it will boot with a single tone and a display. If it does your on a winner just start reconecting each component one at a time re-booting each time untill you come across the component that has failed and replace it.

O.K. just a few hints for working on the guts of a computer:

Static precautions: No need for an anti static wrist strap just make sure that at all times that you are handling an internal component that the power is off at the wall, one part of your body is in contact with the frame of the computer and that you handle cards/RAM by the edges or the "tounge".

Flashing the BIOS: This sets the MB back to its factory set defaults, basicaly a safe/optimal configuration. the jumper will be labled (in teeny weeny litle leters) as JP1, BIOS or CMOS or even CIMOS. It will have three pins with one jumper covering the central pin and one other. WITH THE POWER OFF. Move the jumper so that it covers the central pin and the previously exposed one, hold for three seconds and return back. This is efectively the hardware equivalent of the three fingered salute.

Hope this helps but if I was a betting man I would have my money on the MB, keep all the rest of your components and replace the MB wich will probably require a change in CPU.

Sacraficial power boards with LAN and modem conections are inexpensive and save a lot of tears.

Kind regards

JP1 PIN 1-2 = On board audio disable
JP1 PIN 2-3 = On board audio enable

JP2 = Temperature Sense connector

JP3 PIN 1-2 = Normal
JP3 PIN 2-3 = Clear CMOS

1. Power off the system and unplug the chassis AC power cord.
2. Short JP3 at PIN 2-3 for a few seconds.
3. Set JP3 back to it's normal position at pin 1-2.
4. Plug the AC power cord to the chassis.
5. Power on the system and load the BIOS setup default.
