Hi. I have a Bytecc 3.5" drive enclosure. I just wondered which sid should face the fan when I install the drive? I assume it's the side with the green processor, right?

OK, yes, it's obviously the processor side that faces the fan. DUH. The screws wouldn't fit any other way.

Sorry for asking the obvious...

How does a hard drive looks like? I'm getting a error msg saying that hard drive is bad!!


How old is your hard drive ? Hard drives eventually fail due to normal usage or it could be something else. You need to provide more information.

I'm trying to find a dvd drive for my MPC


May I suggest an alternative?
Buy an external enclosure, and install the DVD R/W drive of your choice. The external enclosure just plugs into any available USB port, on your computer.

This is an example of an external enclosure for a IDE optical drive, (IDE is also known as PATA. This is to help differentiate it from SATA.
Parallel ATA. Serial ATA),

This is an example of an external enclosure for a SATA optical drive,

An example of an IDE optical drive unit, that I have used for 3 years with no problem, and have installed the same unit in a clients computer.
4 years, and all is well.

Actually a slightly older model version, but this one is comparable.

Info about the LightScribe Technology,

Cannot copy files using BYTECC Bt-300


check the jumpers on the old drive and see if its powering on or spining up! some of these usb adapters just dont work on old drives if all else faisl open your system and connect it to your pata bus if you have one! if not then use another computer to extract your data and put it on another storage media e.g. flash drives ext hardddisk memory card or dvd or cd disk!

Power supply fan is makeing a lot of noise


1) Unplug the power cord and give the fan a good cleaning
with a soft paint brush and a vacuum cleaner.

i.e. Let the fans spin up by the vacuum and than bring
the brush against it.

2) If this fails, it's time to replace the fan:

a) Upgrade or replace the power supply enclosure with more
power/higher quality.

This is usually a good investment anyway.

b) Replace the fan only as described below:


Unplug the power cord

Open up the computer (remove sides)

Unplug all the power supply harnesses from
the mother board, drives and chassis fans.

Unscrew and remove the complete power supply
enclosure at back of computer (ie top of the tower)

Vacuum it out as much as possible.

Disassemble the power supply enclosure by removing
more screws and removing the metal cover.

Unplug the fan from the circuit board, remove it
and take it to a computer store/ builder.

buy another fan just like it

reverse the process to put your computer back together.

1) A new power supply should cost $65 to $120
depending on power and quality. The bigger the better.

But make sure it fits mechanically into the existing chassis
and that the AT generation matches ***********-board.

2) A new fan should cost $15 to $25. Makes sure it runs on
the same voltage, and that it is physically compatible.

The fan alert warning when you start up the computer says "WARNING CPU FAN FAILURE SHUTTING DOWN cPU TO AVOID DAMAGE" AND THEN IT SHUTS OFF.


I am going to assume (and we all know what assume means) - that you have a desktop. With the power disconnected, take the side of your computer off. Take a can of air (you can get them anywhere) and blow out your fans (all of them) dust and dirt can cause the fan to stop working, dirt and dust can even short out your computer. I don't suggest using a vacume cleaner - for the parts (on a vacume cleaner) are so large you can bump a circuit or diode that can break off.

Once you have air cleaned the fans, while the side is still off, power up your computer and see if any of your fans are not working, if one is not - that is what needs to be replaced.
