Question about Rosewill R103A ATX Mid-Tower Case

1 Answer

Which way should I plug in the cord for the front panel buttons?

I've been working on building my own PC, and I'm trying to plug in the plugs for the front panel buttons. In the manual for the motherboard, it tells me what each pin does specifically, and I know where to put each one. However, for the buttons on the front of the case (which have 2 pins grouped together, I'm not quite sure which way I need to put it in. The only hint I can see is that on the back of the plug, an arrow points to one of the two pins. Would this be the pin that has ground, or something else? If someone can help me figure out what the arrow means, I'll have no issue putting the rest together. Thanks.

No manual was included in the case.

    I understand where to place the cables on the motherboard. However, I don't understand which direction some of them should go in (particularly the ones for the front, mainly the power and reset buttons). The issue is that each one has 2 pins, which are clearly labeled in the motherboard documentation.



    I believe (for the power button, for example). One pin is for the button, and the other is for ground. However, I don't know which way it goes. Does it matter? On the plug (coming from the front of the case) it only says something along the lines of "Pwr button", and doesn't label each individual pin. The only distinction is that there is a tiny arrow pointing to one of the pins. Is that arrow pointing to ground or the other pin?

    Ok, one more thing, do I need to connect power to the SLI / XFIRE connector if I'm not using crossfire?

Weird start-up problem


Recheck all your board connections. I missed a connector by one pin and got nothing as you have. Once I realized my mistake and re connected the plug on to the board correctly everything worked.

Computer wont turn on


Make sure the tower is getting power. There will be a green light on the back of the tower where the power cord goes. Make sure the cord is snug and that it is securely plugged in to your power source - I'm hoping it is a power surge strip and in which case, make sure the surge strip didn't get unplugged or turned off. If you have it plugged directly in to the wall then make sure that outlet has power by plugging something else in to it that you know works. After doing all of this, make check to see if there is a light on the back of your pc. If not, unplug the power from the back of the tower, wait 30 seconds at least, and then plug it back in. Hit the power button on the front just once, if it doesn't power up, press and hold the button in for a 2 seconds and release. If that doesn't work, your power supply may have gone bad. That happens from time to time. Good luck, hope this helps!

You need to look in the handbook that cam with your motherboard for a section labeled 'Connectors' or possibly 'Connections'. There will be one USB 2.0 type prong on the motherboard that is designated for case connections [Power LED, mini-speaker, etc.]. The manual for the motherboard will indicate what order and where on the motherboard your connectors should go.
Good luck with your build. :]

No power seem to be going though


Try unplugging the power cord from the backside of the unit - press the power button for 30 seconds - release - plug in the cord and press power, if nothing comes on and you hear no sound it must be the Power Supply Unit (PSU) which should be replaced. Assuming that the outlet you are connected is powered ON and there is no other external electrical problem.

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.
