My 500W powered aspire alienware case

I am having problems getting my panel leds wired up. My ECS MB doesn't list the configuration from my case and the plugs differ--the old 3 wire power led plug is now a 2 wire with the leads spread apart--not together.

Re: my 500W powered aspire alienware case

Hi, this can be a common problem, get a small set of side cutters and gently split the plugs to seperate each one. then plug the 2 you need on to the board, turn them sideways so they do not interfere with each other. when pluged on the board you may need to swap them around till they work. Dont worry if you get them the wrong way around you will not do any harm. note there are no adaptors for these connections. Regards mistyman

Aspire 750 CPU case button destroyed.

I'm not overly familiar with this model...but assuming its a desktop, try this. Open the side panel on the case and try to find the back of the power button. If you can find it, and there are two wires that come directly from the back of said button, follow those two wires to where they connect to the motherboard. If they run into something else or there are more than two wires connecting to said power button, you may be out of luck and need to get a hold of a new button before you can turn it back on.

I take no responsibility for any slips and mistakes you should make doing the following, do so at your own discretion and beware of possible damage to yourself or your computer.

I used to work in a shop, and when ever we'd get a desktop with a bad power button, we'd turn it on by opening the tower, tracing the wires from the power button to the two pins on the motherboard said wires plug into, unplugging said wires, and shorting the two pins on the motherboard together for half a second with a screw driver. Naturally, I'll tell you to be careful doing this. I'm not responsible if you short the wrong pins and a)fry your computer or b) fry yourself.

Hope that helps and good luck!

It has a front lcd temp indicator and a bunch of wires to connect to the mother board. I have no manual and I am confused

If you can describe the problem by listing the wore colours and any lettering on them, I might be able to help. Also the motherboard you are trying to connect to as I need to find out the Fpanel pinout

To help you initially.

1.) Wires that are grouped in a series of Red Green white and black are commonly the USB connectors which will go to the uSB headers.

2.) Black and white wire coupled together as a 2 pin is usually the power switch which goes to the Fpanel header

3.) Any wires that appear to be fused in a plastic type sheath are sensor wires.

I'd first try tracing the source of the wires and see where they lead on the front panel, note these down and repost

Power Up ATX Mid-Tower case TC3j-4032 P Wiring

The front audio in this case does not support HD sound. To get it to work you must instal the "HD Sound Application" that came with your hardware and disable the "Detect Front Panel Jack Detection" option. You'll have to manually switch between the two inputs.

Case wiring

For the wires that comes in your CPU casing, mostly used for your front panels like power switch, hdd status, power led, etc. It is indicated on the pins itself so you might not be confused. there are some that comes for front panel USB. (with codes like vcc+ /- ,etc.). The best you can do is to read your Mainboard manual on where you place this pins.

Opening case

It looks like the metal cabinet will slide back. Maybe sticking a flat screwdriver between the black cabinet and the back panel will loosen it.
