Tiny CD conection cord probe suposed to fit positiveto foot 25 negative foot 26

ATRIX Game Case A 900 1 The case is a lovely case,fittings and other probes are no bother. But this one is driving me nuts. The picture I have uploaded is the CD Connection Cord attached to the front panel multifunctional Display, There are 2 pins to fit into the IDE cable feet which goes to "CD Rom feet 25 (Positive) and 26 ( Negative)" The picture I have uploaded also has the temperature probes, but I have no problem with them. The problem is how to get the pins into the IDE Lead feet, where it says in foot 25 and 26. Yes I know where pins 25 and 26 are. But I cannot for the life of me fathom out how to place this connection. I have never seen one like this before, and I have been building computers for about 10 year. The Instructions are not very good,they point to the 40 Ribbon lead holes, but where the lead would already have the pins from the actual drive already in there. How can the pins on this probe type thing be fitted when the ribon cable is attached to the drive? DOH! It driving me up the wall. thanks Joyce

    The two pinned prong has to fit in the back side of the IDE lead, on the opposite side of the holes for the pins. (That is really the base of the pin holes, not the pin holes them-selves). This is not that easy to do on some IDE leads as new leads are ultra and it takes forever to count the tiny wires to find the base of pins 25 and 26. This would have been easy on the older leads, but the newer one's I had to count about 10 times to be sure I had the right pins, as I kept forgetting where I was. Once I was sure of the exact pins, I marked them with the: - & + under the connection with a CD writing pen. Remembering not to push the probe in to far, incase it made conntact with the pins from the drive, or split the thin wires. If your lead also has a backing on it with the tabs on to help pull the lead off the drive, you would have to remove this, and also the plastic strip covering the back of the connection. Then insert the two pins in the base of the connection. It did not really make this instruction clear on the case info leaflet, which was a pitiful excuse for instructions.
    But all is running fine.

    Although I didn't quite have the same problem, my question was to do with the connectors for the CPU fan etc. The case connector would connect directly into the mobo connection for the CPU fan but that would leave me with nowhere to plug in the CPU fan lead. If I plug the fan lead into the mobo connection, I would have to piggy-back the case lead - but it has that tab to make it connect the correct way round and so won't piggy-back. Instructions aren't pitiful, they are completely useless! Any pointers as to how you connected the CPU fan leads for the case?

Actually the pins go on the Slave connector (the connector in the middle of the IDE cable) while the CD/DVD is connector to the Master connector which is on the end.

I need to know where the vacum line from the ball shaped object under the hood of my 95 s10 with a 2.2 engine conects to its off and i cant find the place it is supose to hook to

That is the vacuum resevoir tank and I believe it hooks onto a fitting at the base of the throttle body; it should be a small, half inch long tiny pipe. Take off air cleaner which sits on top of throttle body and look on base where it fastens to the engine manifold.

I cant replace my pull cord on my bc30 zip start ryobi weed eater?

On the equipment I have worked on the spring ends are formed into a circle. One end of the spring fits into the pulley and the other into the case. I wind the spring up on the pully just enough to fit it into the case with the cord placed into a notch in the pulley. Then you must wind the spring more so the cord is fully taken up. So to wind it up some more place the cord in the notch and turn it a turn or two till the cord is fully taken up.

Hi just recently my psp cd rom case came off. as a result,it cant read the UMD. can anyone help? thanks nihal

Well, you should clean the CD and check for scratches and attempt to fit the case back on snug. If it still won't read it, you need a whole new game sadly.

I HAVE AN OCTOBER 2008 XBOX AND A 150W 12.1 AMP POWERBRICK FROM A NEWISH XBOX . PLUG ON POWERBRICK WILL NOT FIT SOCKET ON XBOX

The power cords for the Xbox 360 and the Xbox 360 slim have different shaped plugs. If the plug you are using is not fitting it is likely that you have purchased the incorrect cord. If this is the case you will need to purchase a new cord.
When you purchase your new power cord make sure that it is designed for the original Xbox 360 NOT the Xbox 360 slim.

Fitting front headlights in Saab 900 1993

You really need to clarify what you are trying to do!

The headlight case is secured by two horizontal bolts at the top of the case, visible from outside the car and under the hood when it is slid forward but not raised, and one vertical screw at the outside of the case that connects to the body or side lamp case(?) and is visible from inside the engine bay. There is no adjustment to the fitting of the headlight case to the body.

Aiming the headlights is done with the nylon knobs on the back of the headlight, from inside the engine bay.

Atrix 9006-C4 Black Midi Case 520W fitting for lcd display

There will be "headers" on the motherboard for some case fans. Look for 2/3 pin connections on the board marked "sysfn" or something similar. Any other fans you will have to fit to a spare Molex power connector from the power supply ... you can buy 2 or 3 way "splitter" cables to give you more power connections from one Molex for this purpose. BTW make sure you connect the cpu fan to the "cpu fn" header !!!!! That one is rather important :-P

Installing the game Age of Mythology on my PC

Look on the back of your game manual, within the CD case sleeve jacket plastic goodness, etc. It is usually black characters on a white background and hidden somewhere inside the packaging. Keep this key and don't share it with anyone - it's unique to your specific game.
