Really simple CM 690 II (Advanced) Question!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Sorry, I'm having issues with my PC and sleep mode causing USB devices to stop working... and I just realized my Power LED isn't lighting...

I need to know, is the Power LED in the CM 690 II supposed to be, and stay lit when the computer is on?? Because mine only comes on for about 2 seconds when I initially press the power button and then goes off... the HDD activity LED seems to be OK.

I just forget, is it supposed to be lit while the PC is on?

Yes, it's suppose to stay on. Check those small 1-pin wires which you connected to your motherboard (the multi-colored ones) and make sure they are all plugged in correctly.

The activity light next to my power light wasn't working. What happened is that one of the wires was plugged in upside down (+/- switched) and it worked.

Hope it helps.

The Power LED should be ON when the computer is ON.

 

Are you sure you plugged that "Pwr LED" header plug in correctly into the motherboard header?

doh.gif Somehow I must have turned on Night-time LED mode in the BIOS by mistake.

Thanks for your help though guys! I was just about open up my case and re-seat the PWR header cable. thumb.gif

I apologize if my original post came across as a bit... freaking-out. I've been having the computer equivalent of a bad-hair day today. First my external HDD quit, spent about 3 hours of debugging for nothing... and purchased an eSATA cable for nothing as well. Then I accidentally bumped the sleep button on my keyboard, and found out I have this USB ports sleep failure issue upon waking the PC up again, and now this.
