Hello Sir, hi, the wires on your casing are usually labeled, like in the picture below: cyberdyers_0.jpg

the power led green wire goes to the power led + and the white goes to the - . Now the HDD + goes to the HDD + the red wire, power switch can be interchange, same as the reset switch.

The case is sold sans power supply. Since it is an ATX form factor, you can add in a third party power supply- like Corsair, or any other reputable manufacturer. As a piece of advice: I would honestly spend more on power and cooling than I would on hard drive capacity, gpu power, or processor speed- the reason being what's the point of having the best processor and video cards when your system dies from lack of power or melts down due to improper cooling!

Intel pentium 4 computer ' smetimes when I move mouse page moves

well pentium 4 is one of the best processor and as you say that it is of ten years old it seems it had worked for more than what it was expected of so there no loss if you go to buy a new PC.

good luck.

PC hangs randomly

This may be problems inside your computer, for instance, your power supply could be bad or intermittent.This could cause this problem. Any loose connections or bad connections in the computer can also cause this problem. This could also be a hard drive problem, if the hard drive is not functioning correctly. This unit should be return for service and problem should be listed as intermittent hanging problems. This problem could also be a lot worse like a bad cpu chip or motherboard.All the service information should be in your owners manual. Hope this helps you with your problem.

There can be several causes for your problem.
So I will walk you through checking the most likely causes.

If you have the manual for your Motherboard it will be useful for reference purposes, otherwise you can find it at intels website with the following link.

First thing I would check is that ALL of the power connectors are in place and secure. In particular check the 20 pin ATX connector and the two 12V connectors (2 four pin square connectors) right next to the CPU.

I'm not sure if the Aux PCIe connector at the bottom of the board needs to be connected if you have just one Video card. If your Video card has its own power connecter make sure that is attached and secure.

When installing the motherboard there should have been some standoffs you needed to install, more than likely at least nine of them. if any or all of them had a metallic ring around the screw hole then they are important that you have a standoff under it and that it is secured with an electrically conductive screw(Any that came with your case that thread into the standoff should be good).

make sure that that the processor is fully seated and the heatsink (Cooling block if building a water cooled system) is attached properly with a thermal pad/paste.

make sure the fan for the processor is properly attached to the heatsink and its power leads are connected to the CPU fan power connector(On your board the connector is a four pin) the one on the fan may be 3 or 4 pin depending on in it is speed adjustable by the BIOS

there are lockdown latches for your RAM and Video cards, they should come up and fully seat into the notch on the video card and RAM modules.

If you don't have enough RAM modules to fill all 4 slots at once, use the one next to your CPU first then the one the same color as that, then the next one up and its like colored. if you want your RAM. If installing in pairs its important to make sure they have the same specification (Size and timings)

Connect your case fans to their repective pins on the Motherboard.

Connect the power and data cables for your Optical drive(s) and Hard drives.

Make sure the case wiring is attached and properly oriented on their headers

attach the USB & or Firewire(1394) connectors to their respective headers (Be sure not to interchange and attach a 1394 cable to a USB header or vice versa) [That could kill the connectors or fry the Motherboard]

Now I think your ready for a test run.

leave the side panel off and connect everything up and try to boot, If you see a light on the motherboard then thats a good sign that all of the power connectors are properly attached and that the Motherboard is OK.

If you fail to get that light the motherboard may have been damaged when you attempted to power up and the CPU wasn't properly seated

If it attempts to start but shuts down right away, you may have a damaged CPU (Processor) unplug everything, remove the processor(Make sure you discharge any static electricity by placing a hand on the side of you Power supply before touching the CPU) turn it over and look to see if any pins are bent (If so you can straighten them again by using a mechanical pencil. Just pull the lead out and slide the pencil over the pin and adjust to as straight as you can.

Reinstall the processor clean off the old thermal pad/paste from CPU & Heatsink with a Qtip and some rubbing alchohol. Let dry and apply a new thermal pad or paste. If using paste put an amount about the size of a dime over the Core of the CPU if you want to spread it use something other than your finger[oil from skin can affect the pastes conductivity] then reattach Heatsing and fan

and give it another go. If it still does not work, you may have damaged your CPU electrically and it should be replaced(maybe under warranty, since its brand new)

Hope this helps

Power but doesnt start

Sounds like you are not getting a "power good" signal from the mobo telling the power supply to turn on. Something is probably wrong with the configuration or installation of parts. Try removing the RAM and all interface connectors and then see if will power up.
Make sure the power supply is set to the correct A/C voltage for your reigon.
Could be the motherboard is cmoing into contact with the chassis or something else.
Make sure the processor is inserted correctly and seated.

If it powers up. begin connecting the RAM and try again. Keep connecting something else one at a time until it fails. That will be the problem.

Raidmax Scorpio ATX Mid-Tower Case

The on/off connector is the power labelled one. The one thing you may have to do is (if you have'nt already)connect the power connector from the PSU to the processor power supply, close by to it as it may not just run off the motherboard ZIF socket for it's power up.
