For the switches, polarity really doesn't matter. It seems that the biggest thing for you is the LEDs. General rule: if it doesn't light up, or lights the wrong color, reverse the polarity.

I unplug my front audio connector cable and usb 2.0 connectors on my motherboard while putting in a new graphics card in the pci-e slot. After I inserted them back, my pc didn't want to switch on and I...

Uninstall the newly installed Graphics card and boot again. If it boots up normally, then the graphics card must be incompatible with your motherboard or might have some defect with it. Or if the system doesn't boot up even after the new graphics card is uninstalled, then you need to recheck the connectors and make sure everything is connected/inserted properly and fitted. The best way to check connection faulty is, plug-in one after another while you boot the system everytime... you plug in a connector. First connect the power switch and so on..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Computer wont start(Plz Help me ) Added Much Detail as possiable

start by removing everything, ram, any cards plugged in, drives etc. Then try and boot it. If the issue is still present, shut it down and remove the heatsink and cpu. I have known CPU's to be jolted out of their sockets after an impact. Take the heatsink off, lift the lever and remove the cpu. Check that all the pins are still aligned and straighten any bent pins then refit the cpu and lock the lever down. Refit the heatsink making sure that the heat transfer pad or heatsink paste is still present and lock it down. Plug the power cords and front panel wiring back in and try and boot it. If it boots, shut down and refit each item you removed one at a time, booting in between each item. If the issue arises again, the last item you fitted is the culprit. If you can refit everything and boot the system up, lady luck is with you. If you still cannot get it to boot after refitting the cpu, replace the mainboard. Sorry but without special gear, locating a fault like this on a mainboard is a real pain..

When I attempt to turn on my computer after playing with the switch front and back it will start sometimes and run for a few minutes and then shut down. When I remove the four pin connector to the mother...

I've seen this before but the 4 pin connector was burnt pretty bad and not making a good connection. I'd see if you could gently scrape the pins a little bit with a small knife(motherboard) See if the connector from the power supply looks ok and doesn't look like it's gotten hot. The holes in the center of the 4 wire connector can be a little bit larger than the pins themselves also. You might try plugging in the connector and then holding some side pressure on the connector while you try to start the computer. Also unplug the hard drive and cdrom while you try booting. The power supply may not be putting out enough amperage and unplugging drives may give it a little more power. That would mean you might need another power supply if it works.

hello sir, try the following make, sure that your power supply is working fine:
  1. turn off the pc and remove the side cover, locate the memory module, and reseat it (remove and put it back). power on the pc. Still not working? (make sure that the 12 volt 4pin molex power connector is pluged on the motherboard)
  2. off again, remove the memory modules again and clean its gold plated contacts by using an eraser (the pencil eraser) then put it back again. power on. still not working? do 1 and 2 several times. (make sure that the memory modules are good)
  3. If several times has not worked, try to isolate the problem by removing all the connectors except. 20/24 pin power connector, the 4 pin 12volt power connector, the vga cable, front panel leds and switch. do 1 and 2 again.
  4. still not working? check your motherboard connections and review your work?
  5. is you pc 220 v plugged on 110v?
  6. Check *********** board.

You must have pulled a connector off under the canel you removes. I'm sure if you take the panel off again you will find the connector and be able to locate where it goes.
Hope this helps. Bud

Computer wont boot after memory upgrade

when working on computers you have to be carefull to ground your self before touching the inside of them. when installing memory you dont need to unpluge everythinf just the main power cord on the back of it.the blinking green light means you have something no pluged in right,double check everything you unpluged make sure it back in the right areas.on memory the slots are mark 1,2,3,4
make sure if the memory is diffrent in speeds the lagger ons go first.the first to slots normally have to be the same speed and size ram.if that does not work let me know i can look into it for you.

PC Not Starting

When you say "...put computers back together..." what does that mean?

Check video cable pins. Check disk drive connector...make sure they are pushed in tight on mobo and drive connector.

if it does not respond at all......i mean no fan no lights no anything.....then double check that your power supply is good.....if it is and you are sure your chasis connectors are placed on the proper pins then you could have a bad motherboard or cpu.......of course more troubleshooting should be attempted before drawing this conclusion (removing one part at a time, etc.) but no power is never a good thing.
