Why dont all of my LED's work?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
EDIT: found solution to problem. I've been trying to figure this out for a month and I guess talking it out on a forum can be the best answer. You guys have been great!


I have a rosewill challenger and I have three connections for LEDS that go towards the front of my case. Power, HDD, and reset. The HDD LED works perfectly and blinks in succession with the HDD but the power and reset LED have never worked. I'm 99% sure they are connected in to the right connectors on the MB and have even tried all possible configs with no luck. I doubt it would be two bad LED's so I really think I must be doing something wrong. Can someone please help?

I don't even care about having pretty lights, I just hate not having something that doesn't work or something I can't figure out. Thanks.

Here is the case.

LEDs are very cheap(I got 20 blue ones for a dollar). Just replace them(Cut open the cord, stick the longer stick, or the anode, into the wire that ISNT black and stick the other into the one that is black). Problem solved.

Rosewill has poor quality control for their products. This doesnt surprise me. Like Lostintyme said, grab some LED's for cheap there are a few guides on here about how to install LED's.

Rosewill has shipped to me with dead LED's in the past. Not a big deal but it is frustrating to see that they clearly didn't test their product. Like suggested, it can be an easy fix.

Goodluck.
