Re: RAIDMAX X1 Computer Case

Hi, if this is only the case speaker cable you are asking about, then just use a small pair of side cutters and cut the plug apart and plug the red and black cable on seperately. Regards mistyman

I dont no where to plug in the wirers on my tower

Your Dell desktop computer will come with all of the equipment you need to hook it up and get it started right in the box with the main CPU. You will have all of the peripheral equipment and cables that you need to connect your desktop to your keyboard, mouse, monitor and, most importantly, a wall outlet or surge protector to provide it with power. The entire hook-up process shouldn't take more than a few minutes. Connect your computer monitor to your Dell computer using the included blue VGA cable. This VGA cable plugs into the blue video input on the back of your Dell computer and into the identical input on the back of your monitor. Plug your monitor's attached power cable into a wall outlet or surge protector. Plug in your keyboard and mouse. Dell computers ship with USB keyboards and mice, so take the USB cables that are permanently connected to each device and plug each of them into one of the available USB ports on the back of your Dell computer. You can use the ports on the front of your computer if you like, but as your keyboard and mouse don't get unplugged with any kind of frequency you may want to conserve those inputs for removable devices like flash drives. Connect your Dell computer to a wall outlet or surge protector using the included power cable. The power cable plugs into the power outlet on the back of your Dell computer and into a regular power outlet on a compatible device. Press "Power" on your Dell computer as well as on your monitor. Your computer will turn on and begin to boot into Windows.
Hope this helps. For reference, you may want to read this section describing the cables and connectors coming from the power supply, and/or this section describing the connections on the motherboard. Motherboards and system cases vary. Your motherboard may not have all the items I mention here, and the same holds true for your case. Furthermore, you may find that your case and motherboard don't match in every situation; for example, some cases have a turbo button and some do not, and some motherboards have a connection for a turbo button and some don't. Watch out for "off by one" errors when attaching cables to pin headers. In particular, some motherboards combine several pin connectors into a larger block. The individual connections are the same, the motherboard just physically groups the pins together into a larger matrix. Be careful when working with these as making a mistake is much easier to do. Refer to the manual. If the system is in a tower case, it is much easier to perform this procedure with the case resting on its side. LEDs have two wires and are unidirectional, so they will not work if attached backwards. You need to connect the positive lead from the case to the positive pin on the motherboard, and the same with the negative. Unfortunately, the case connector almost never has the positive and negative labeled. Fortunately, attaching them backwards will usually not cause any damage; the LED just won't work. One tip you can use: most cases employ for each LED one colored wire (green, yellow, red, orange, blue) and another wire that is either black or white. When this is the case, usually the colored wire is positive (signal) and the black or white wire is negative (ground). This isn't always true, but it's better than a random guess in most cases.

Three views shown.

Scroll down to the photos towards the bottom.

Looking at the Front of the computer, the LEFT Side panel removes.
Remove the Philips head screw located towards the Top, on the Side Panel's edge, and the Bottom screw on the Side Panel's edge.

Pull back on the raised fingergrip, formed out of the back of the Side Panel.
The panel pulls back so far, then is tilted out, and removed.

-> FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

You may also wish to remove all cables from the computer, and lay it on it's side for easier access to the motherboard.

Look at the right side of the motherboard, and the two long White PCI slots.
Above them is a long Blue PCI-Express x16 slot. This is used for a graphics card.

Above it is a small White slot. This is a PCI-Express x1 slot.

If a PCI slot is open you can use it for a Sound Card.
If not, and the white PCI-Express x1 slot is open, you can use it.

Examples of Sound Cards used in a PCI slot, and a PCI-Express x1 slot;

1) PCI;

On the back of the computer case framework is a small 'door', that holds the expansion cards in place.
The Thumbscrew is loosened, and this allows the door to swing open.

Find the appropriate expansion slot cover, that matches up to the slot your wish to use, and remove it.
Note that the expansion slot covers, do Not line up inline with an expansion slot on the motherboard.

(Expansion Slot; i.e., PCI, or PCI-Express x16, or PCI-Express x1 )

The expansion slot on the motherboard, is usually one space over from the expansion slot cover on the back.

[Don't believe that is worded correctly, but you will see what I mean with the Side Panel off, and looking at the motherboard ]

Yes. It's a lot of fun(?) trying to keep the expansion slot covers in place, expansion cards in place, and trying to close that 'door' properly.

[Look close. The bracket for the expansion card, (In this case a Sound Card), fits in little depressions in the metal framework of the computer case; or the brackets half-moon hole, will fit over a small peg, in the computer case framework ]

How to replace the motherboard in a Compaq D510 computer

The Compaq D510 desktop computer uses a U-ATX size motherboard that is smaller than the standard ATX size. If the motherboard on your Compaq computer has stopped working or you want to upgrade to a different motherboard with different expansion slots you can open the case and replace the motherboard.

to replace the motherboard, just follow these steps:

  • Double click on the "Smart Cover" icon on the desktop. Enter in the Smart Cover lock code if you have set one up and click on "Unlock" to disengage the hardware lock that prevents the case panel from being opened.

  • 2

    Click on the "Start" button at the bottom toolbar of the desktop and choose "Shut Down." Unplug all of the cables from the back of the computer once it has finished powering down.

  • 3

    Set the Compaq computer case on its side and remove the two screws connected to the top and bottom ends of the case panel. Slide the panel to the left and pull it directly off the case.

  • 4

    Disconnect the SATA cables running from the power supply, drive bays and processor fan to the motherboard. Remove the screws holding any expansion cards you may have previously installed into the AGP ports on the lower right side of the motherboard and then pull the cards out.

  • 5

    Pull back the clamp holding the processor fan on. Pull the fan and then the processor off of the motherboard. Pull off the RAM modules from the motherboard.

  • 6

    Remove the screws holding the motherboard into place and pull the entire motherboard directly out of the case. Check the orientation of the replacement motherboard and make sure the USB ports and AGP expansion card slots are facing towards the back of the case. Lay the new motherboard down into the case onto the mounting screws sticking out of the bottom panel.

  • 7

    Place the processor back into its socket on the motherboard and connect the fan on top. Snap back on the fan clamp. Place the RAM modules back into their slots. Re-connect all of the SATA cables to the drive bays and power supply.

  • 8

    Set the side panel back onto the case and re-connect the case screws. Connect all of the cables into the back of the case and power the computer back on. Wait for the operating system to load to make sure the motherboard is working properly.

    How to build a or assemble a computer and troubleshoot?

    Building a computer will require: a motherboard, a processor, memory, a video card or motherboard with onboard video, a sound card or motherboard with onboard sound, at least one hard drive, a CD or DVD drive, a case for the computer components, a power supply, fans to cool the computer, an operating system, a monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, 2-3 hours to assemble the computer.
    You must ensure that all of the components are compatible with one another. After receiving the parts, lay everything out on a large, clean surface. Make sure you are grounded by touching a metal surface; this will prevent the transfer of static electricity to your computer components.
    Typically, the steps to install the components are as follows: 1. mount the power supply in the case, 2. mount the motherboard 3. lock the processor in the socket on the motherboard 4. insert the memory sticks into the slots on the motherboard 5. mount the processor fan on the processor 6. insert the video card into the applicable slot on the motherboard 7. insert the hard drive into a hard drive bay in the case, 8. insert the CD drive into a CD drive bay, 9. mount any fans you have to the fan cutouts on the case 10. connect all applicable data cables to the CD and hard drives 11. connect all applicable power cables to the motherboard, video card, processor, hard drive, CD drive, and any other components. 12. connect the front panel USB, power, lights, and reset connectors to the motherboard 13. close the case 14. connect the power, monitor, speakers, keyboard, and mouse to the computer
    Because this process is rather involved, I recommend following a guide such as this one:
    It details the process, includes pictures, and even provides a list of compatible parts.

    I can get picture with hdmi connected but no sound. Do i have to connect the optical digital audio cable from PC to TV to get sound? Actually the video and sound go to stereo receiver first, video passes...

    If your video card supports audio over hdmi in that case you need to find the s/pdif port on you motherboard and the port on your video card (usually right next to and sli or xfire bridge) then you can send the sound thru the hdmi. if not you will have to connect your optical audio cable or a 3.5mm audio out to rca left and right out to your receiver for audio. what video card and mother board are you using? if you know this i can tell you exactly where the ports are for the spdif cable to video card and mobo.

    I have a Dell XPS400 and can not connect to the internet because the machine does not have any installed network adapters. I have always had internet access...where do I find this adapter if I can't get...

    This is onr example of a Network adapter, or also know as an Ethernet Adapter Card,

    This is Dell Support >XPS 400 desktop computer > Service Manual,

    1) Work on a table. Computer off, and unplugged from power, open the computer case.

    (Removing the Computer Cover, in the list)

    2) Follow Anti-Static precautions.

    [Anti-Static Precautions:

    Your body carries Static electricity.
    Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components, inside a computer.

    To relieve your body of Static, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case.
    Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, upon your return be sure to Touch the metal frame again ]

    3) View the motherboard inside your computer.
    (The motherboard is also referred to as the Mainboard, {Proper speak}, and System Board)

    Technical Overview > System Board Components,

    Viewing the illustration of the motherboard, the Ethernet Adapter Card example I gave above, would go in either one of the PCI expansion slots.

    These are white in color, and in the illustration are labeled - PCI Card Connectors.

    If there is already an adapter card installed in both PCI expansion slots, then see if the PCI Express x1 expansion slot is open.

    In reality, PCI Express is a better technology than PCI.

    Shown on the motherboard as PCI Express x1 Card Connector.

    This is an example of an Ethernet Card, (Ethernet Adapter Card), that uses the PCI Express x1 expansion slot,

    The reason I have suggested buying, and installing an Ethernet Adapter Card is threefold.

    1) You may have your Ethernet cable plugged into the Ethernet port of the computer,

    [Number 3 - Network Connector],

    and the built-in Ethernet is no good.
    Reinstalling drivers May help, but the above is a sure thing.

    2) You have an Ethernet Adapter Card plugged into one of the PCI slots, or the PCI Express x1 slot, and the Ethernet adapter card is no good.
    They do go bad, and are economical to replace.

    3) There was an Ethernet Adapter Card installed previously, but taken out before you received the computer.

    Motherboard diagram

    A Computer Motherboard Diagram motherboard-diagram-01.jpg Once you know what you are looking at, you can recognize the components on any motherboard layout. A computer motherboard diagram is very useful for when you need to replace motherboard, do motherboard upgrades, troubleshoot motherboard, or build your own computer.
    1. PCI Slot - This board has 2 PCI slots. These can be used for components such as Ethernet cards, sound cards, and modems.
    2. PCI-E 16x Slot - There are 2 of them on this motherboard diagram, both are blue. These are used for your graphics card. With two of them onboard, you can run 2 graphics cards in SLI. You would only need this if you are a gamer, or working with high end video / graphics editing. These are the 16x speed versions, which are currently the fastest.
    3. PCI-E 1x Slot - Single slot - In the PCIe 1.x generation, each lane (1x) carries 250 MB/s compared to 133 MB/s for the PCI slots. These can be used for expansion cards such as Sound Cards, or Ethernet Cards.
    4. Northbridge - This is the Northbridge for this motherboard. This allows communication between the CPU and the system memory and PCI-E slots.
    5. ATX 12V 2X and 4 Pin Power Connection Power Connection - This is one of two power connections that supply power to the motherboard. This connection will come from your Power Supply.
    6. CPU-Fan Connection - This is where your CPU fan will connect. Using this connection over one from your power supply will allow the motherboard to control the speed of your fan, based on the CPU temperature.
    7. Socket - This is where your CPU will plug in. The orange bracket that is surrounding it is used for high end heat sinks. It helps to support the weight of the heat sink.
    8. Memory Slots - These are the slots for your RAM. Most boards will have 4 slots, but some will only have 2. The color coding you see on the motherboard diagram is used to match up RAM for Dual-Channel. Using them this way will give your memory a speed boost.
    9. ATX Power Connector - This is the second of two power connections. This is the main power connection for the motherboard, and comes from the Power Supply.
    10. IDE Connection - The IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) is the connection for your hard drive or CD / DVD drive. Most drives today come with SATA connections, so you may not use this.
    11. Southbridge - This is the controller for components such as the PCI slots, onboard audio, and USB connections.
    12. SATA Connections - These are 4 of the 6 SATA connections on the motherboard. These will be used for hard drives, and CD / DVD drives.
    13. Front Panel Connections - this is where you will hook in the connections from your case. These are mostly the different lights on your case, such as power on, hard drive activity etc.
    14. FDD Connection - The FDD is the Floppy Disk controller. If you have a floppy disk drive in your computer, this is where you will hook it up.
    15. External USB Connections - This is where you will plug in external USB connections for your case or USB bracket.
    16. CMOS battery - This is the motherboard's battery. This is used to allow the CMOS to keep its settings.

    I had to change the motherboard as it failed

    Look at the front panel of the computer you will see the connections you have. Should be power, reset, power led, usb etc. These are connected to your current motherboard and most times all the connections will be labeled in the case, on the wire connector ends. IE the end that connects to the motherboard. The only exception to this is the usb ports, and they can be hooked up to new usb connectors on the motherboard. Also note, read i said READ the proper way to connect the usb to the motherboard, this is usually a one shot deal, get it wrong and you kill that usb connector.

    PC will POST, but no monitor display

    Maybe you forgot to connect extra power to the graphics card? On that card I believe it is a PEG connector, some older cards used standard molex but this is a rather new card.

    Also, some mainboards have extra power connectors for the pci bus to provide extra stability (mostly for SLI/Crossfire configs). Never hurts to check if this is the case and then plug in some more juice even if you are not using dual gpu's.

    Good kuck and please come back with more questions if it didn't help-
