Dumbass #164 - Submitted on 01-15-2005 by Codegen
Well, I recently had my brother's computer for a simple XP install. The case was a CasEdge LX734A, so a pian in the ass basically. When I powered it on, I heard a "clunkity clunkity clunk clunk clunkity clunkity clunk clunk" noise coming from the front. I called him after this and he said it was doing it ever since he bought the system, and it was ok for me to check it out.

So, I attempt to take off the side panel, read up online and find out that front panel has to be removed first, finally get side panel off, look at the fan shroud, and the fan is LOOSE. So, I fix it, plug the computer in, and *click* nothing. So, I'm panicking, of course. I do the disconnect everything dance, still doesn't work. So, I'm panicking even more, then I looked over to the front panel connections and see a nice dangling connector labeled "Power Sw." I plugged it back in and the computer sprang to life.
