Can someone please help me with this case?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

Had a motherboard die the other day but luckily none of my components inside died. I ended up transferring my hardware with a different motherboard to a different, more spacious case - but I'm having a problem with audio at the moment and I kind of need to know what this case is. It's not branded, and the PSU in it is custom, so I have no idea where to go with this. I tried a google image search, to no avail. If any of you know what this case is, please help. It's attached.

 

Thanks,

- Jago

Looks dodgy to me, and is that a floppy disk reader? What is this, the 90s? 


Please quote our replys so we get a notification and can reply easily. Never cheap out on a PSU, or I will come to watch the fireworks.

The previous owner worked with MS-DOS and old OSes a lot - no idea why. I don't use it.

That did help, thanks - but I only have one connector - audio, the images I'm about to send show it. I'm still clueless about why the back panel audio is not working, seeming as I've plugged two different devices in and they come up in Playback Devices - enabled and all, yet no audio. Also headphones comes up (like the front connector works) but it says its not plugged in when it clearly is.

Check your mobo manual and see if there is a seperate connecter for the ac97.

Hmm. Looking online, I searched what the PSU said (it doesn't look very custom now) and it keeps popping up: http://images.esellerpro.com/2131/I/634/34/DCP_4585.JPG

 

(But with no case. Images on the way)

 

Take it out that's a ticking time bomb

How come? I have no other PSU and also the previous owner (my family) definitely wouldn't have chose an unstable PSU. Plus, I have nothing to lose really. New PC soon.

Oh if you dont care about that PC might aswell keep it but its a sliver no name PSU, highly doubt its really 550W. Its not certified its really more of a case of when it blows up rather than if it does...

Ah, okay. Thing is though I'm not using 550W like ever - not with this graphics card or CPU.

Yeah like I said if you're getting a new PC it should be alright to use but when you do get a new PC check the PSU tier list

Sounds good. I could just save for a new PSU though and just upgrade my GPU. I'm like real scared of my PC now xD
