Question about Ultra Products Ultra M923 Full Tower ATX Case (ULT40125) ATX Mid-Tower Case

Ultra m923 mid-tower case won't stop beeping

When I first received the computer and put it together, everything was working just fine and running great. When I tried adding a second monitor things just went bad. The display at the top of the case is showing half numbers and the HDD and fan display are not moving. The computer will however continue and finish booting up to the windows screen normally but it won't stop beeping, from the time I hit the power button to the time I shut down. Even after I removed the second monitor and set everything back to the way it was, the loud annoying beeping will not stop and the display is still messed up. Any solutions?

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.

Mine started beep continuasly after I plugged a second monitor to my video card also. The display went blank, and the beeping started. After I checked all my connections, reset the video and RAM cards, I pulled the LED display off (four scews) . On the back of the display, near the middle of the card is a reset switch. After I push that the beeping stopped and the display started working again.

Mine was working fine and one day the front panel started to beep and when I checked it was that the CPU fan was too clogged with dust (after 14 months) then I realized quickly that these newer computers work with much more airflow than the older ones that I had and since then I just clean them far more often (every 6 months or so). In that case the front panel beeps simply warned me that the CPU was starting to overheat so it did its job.

Now, about the time it had 3 1/2 years it started giving me 5 beeps every few minutes or so. I checked everything and everything was working fine but the motherboard BIOS and the overclocking utility were indicating that the CPU fan RPMs were at zero.

I checked the fan and it was running just fine so I bypassed the CPU fan connector to the panel and I plugged the CPU fan directly to my mobo (MSI X58 Platinum) and the BIOS started to report the fan RPMs again and so did the overclocking utility of the mobo which previously was giving me an alarm too because of the zero reading of the CPU fan RPMs (It sounded like those red alerts from Star Trek).

The problem is that he 5 beeps continued as before and all other sensors were in place as always (HDD temp sensor, VGA temp sensor and CPU temp sensor) I checked them and they were in the right place firmly.

I simply realized now from what I read on the web that the front panel must have started to malfunction. I checked the continuity of the cables with a tester but they seem to be fine. If I plug the CPU fan into the front panel connector as before it reports the RPMs in the front panel but not to the motherboard. In the mobo they appear as zero. So I will keep the bypass and leave the CPU fan plugged directly to the mobo (the mobo has its own buzzer speaker anyway).

What you can do if that pesky buzzer keeps annoying you is simply to pry it off the small board and bye bye with it. Anyway most other cases don't have this functions and the mobos work fine without them, you will miss the temp alarms yes but like I said many mobos have their own buzzer connector and you can buy one for next to nothing in computer stores and plug it in the mobo buzzer (speaker) connector so you have your mobo error beeps which is a good idea.

You can also use together with those mobo buzzers a software utility (like the one I mentioned) that loads at startup that can warn you if the CPUs or fans are having trouble of some kind.

If you bypass the front panel by disconnecting the two white connectors you will loose the system ON LEDs that look kinda pretty and of course tell you hat the PC is activated but they are not an absolute necessity cause you can get a single led from an old PC chassis or from a PC parts store or maybe from Radio Shack (you have to know what kinda LED to use so ask around) and plug it in the mobo power LED pins and then attach it to the chassis in one way to the other (Radio Shack have LED holders too that can be placed in the chassis with a hole).

If you don't want to loose those nice blue LEDs then do as I told you and pry (very carefully and making sure that the PC is disconnected of course) the panel buzzer off. If you are sure that the PC is working fine and this is just a problem of the front panel which causes the buzzer to malfunction then no problem in removing it, the front panel may "think" that there is an error and try to keep beeping but the buzzer wont be there to annoy you anymore. Problem solved.

    Well I did exactly what i said cause I tried to set the threshold limits to the temp sensors (all 3 of them) to the highest and the buzzer kept beeping. So I turned the PC off and broke the upper part of the buzzer little by little carefully with some pliers. I realized then that the top part of the buzzer is kinda of a separate thing, it has a line that divides the upper cover (the one with the little hole in the center) from the lower one so you may not even have to break it. It may be possible to just pull it carefully and then that upper plastic part comes off it and then you just remove the metal circlular part an leave the lower part of the buzzer soldered top the little circuit board and that's it, the buzzer wont be able to make any more sounds so it was even easier to do than I though originally cause I didn't have to pry the lower part of it from the board and that has far less risk of damaging the rest of the board and in my case that is good cause all the blue LEDs still light up perfectly when the PC turns on and I like it like that. Also the HD indicator in the LCD panel still works which tells me that the hard drive is accesing data. After that I have not have any more problems with it.

  • David Guzman Sep 17, 2013

    And if you have more problems with the small panel than me and you have to remove it from the loop, just disconect the two white connectors on the back of it and plug the CPU fan directly to your mobo. If you need to provide a power on LED the one you have to buy is 3.3 volts. You may have to get one of those tini conectors that you plug into the mobo power LED pins. Its posible that you may get one of those from some of that surplus stuff that comes with many motherboards or from an old PC that no longer works. Some of those mobo power LED connectors are 2 pins & others 3 pins so just find the correct one you need and even if it is a 3 connector one you will have to use only two to attach the LED cables cause it has only two. It may be possible to place the new LED in one of those empty holes on the fron grills (this case has many) and hold it there with a little bit of that black epoxy that you can get on autoparts stores.

  • David Guzman Sep 17, 2013

    Remember that not all 3.3 volt LEDs are the same, some are dimmer and some are brighter. Try to find one that you like cause you may find one that is too bright and you may find that annoying or you may get one that is too dimm and you may not be able to see if it is on in daylight. If you go to Radio Shack for example to buy it then ask the store clerck if it is low, medium or high power LED (in terms of the brightness), he/she may know, tell the clerk what do you want to use it for and the peson may understand and perhaps is able to recommend the right one.

The last time I had a problem with my computer beeping at me like that and it was related to video was when the video card was not completely inserted and set into the AGP port. If it sounds like it is just random beeps without any real pattern then it might just mean that the 2nd plug caused a short and now there is a physical hardware problem. If it is beeping in a particular pattern then you should look up the beeping sequence with a google search...such as 3 short, 2 long 2 short means ....there are hamsters in your CPU fan.

Hi, I had the same inital problem as you, except I didn't put a new video card as I was please with the Onboard card performance that even has an HDMI port. Not sure if your problem is solved already, but in my working process, I first suspected the Power Supply, and I had everything out of the case but the Mother Board. When I tried to fire it up I was always getting "No signal" on the screen, not even a blink from the BIOS. I then put everything back in place, then after the HD started spinning of and Windows booting, the screen started coming on. I felt it was like if I needed Windows to have a clean booth to replace the video drivers and switch to the InBoard card. Hoping this of any help.

My monitor says "no input signal" every time I put it on. I have checked all the wires and connections and they seem fine. Any suggestions?


Starting from the monitor and going to the video connection to your computer, make sure everything is connected and undamaged. If your video card has more than one output, try switching the cable to the other output. If neither is working, and the monitor works fine from a different computer, then its the video card, otherwise its the monitor. But again, before dropping any money on a new monitor, try a different cable, and try switching the cable to the second output if there is one. A video card is definitely cheaper than a monitor.

ACER MONITOR SAYS 'NO SIGNAL'


Hi Denise!

First things first, try the monitor with other computers.. If the monitor is functioning then there must be something wrong with the VIDEO CARD or BUILT IN VIDEO ADAPTER for the computer. My guess would be the video processor is not working and one probable solution is to purchase a new video card.


Second Case:
You might have changed the video resolution into something it cannot display. Like setting a 1280pixels x 800 pixels @ 32 bit. to a 15" monitor. 15" monitors or any other monitor in this case may not have support for higher graphics. Stick with 1024 x 768.

Solution: Reboot the computer on safe mode and set the necessary display settings to the lowest.

Hope this gives you an idea.

My monitor says there is no signal from my new Dell Studio


Try reseating the video card in your new computer. Sounds like it may not be seating in the slot properly. Take it out and put it back in with the power off and then hook everything back up and then see if you get video,.

Video reader knocked loose, moniter won't work.


You are referring to the Video Card - it is the card that the monitor connects to which could also be integrated depending on model. There should be beeps indicating if the card is actually loose. There is also a possibility that there is an issue with the new memory. Was the system not tested before you received it back? Have you tried it with the old memory? Service manuals are available on DELL's website.

Samsung 226bw weird display problems


At first you should clarify if your GPU or LCD is broken.
Do You have any chance to try another monitor with your Graphicadapter or to try your monitor on a different PC?
Moreover you should try it with a new cable.

The symptom of weird symbols sounds most likely like a overheated or wrong-plugged Graphicadapter

No picture on the screen


Hi,

I have this Panasonic PanaSync SL70 17'' monitor, I don't use it often. It is still in very great shape. However, I tried to turn it on yesterday, I got a black screen. The power LED is on and I can hear the relay is clicking when signal received. I tried to remove the signal cable, I can see it turns to power saving mode. It seems that everything works fine except no picture. I am if the transformer is gone, but not sure. I am wondering if you can help?
