Re: Trying to hack the fan on a DAS enclosure

It looks like I'm going to have to try swapping the fan out now. I dropped the 4 WD drives in there and the fan isn't running at all. I left it doing a read scan on the array for an hour, and nothing...

Trying to hack the fan on a DAS enclosure

I've got a Buffalo HD-QL8TSU2R5 4-disk SATA enclosure that I'm working on at the moment. From the factory, the 80mm fan only runs "when needed". There's no speed adjustment or switch to leave it on...

Re: Dell Inspiron N7110 keyboard spill - replacement keyboard still unresponsive

No capslock LED when pressed. 3.3v is present on pin1 of CON1.



This one boots up and runs fine with a USB keyboard.
