    Be a detective, exactly why do you think the processor, power supply and heat sink are okay? Saying so doesn't make it so!!!!!

Sounds like your CPU fan may be failing (bearings seizing), and that is either causing the CPU to overheat and shut down, or the fan may be drawing excessive power and causing power droops.

Optiplex GX280 - loud fan at start up and amber power light - does not boot and no light at the back


Apply pressure on the heat sink fan right before you press the power button and continue applying pressure. Watch your screen if you see it boot this means its a problem with your processor clamp that applies pressure to the processor. Try to remove the top part of the clamp. Shouldn't be too hard with some needle nose pliers. Then just replace the heat sink and fan with out that clamp.

My hp media center m7160n computer powers up, has a definite fan sound, normally the fan sound diminishes and the computer boots up. For the last several months, the high speed fan sound would not diminish...


How did you clean it?
The last one I worked on had the fins of the Heat sink totally blocked with dust. This will make the fan scream trying to push air thru the heat sink to cool the processor. If it isn't cooled it will shut down in short order.
You must BLOW it out. Use a pressurized air can. Better if you have a compressor with a nozzle.

The other issue may be the interface between the CPU and heat sink is defective. Heat sink moved or become loose.

Of course by this time the processor could be dead also.

PC won't boot


processor may be heat up check it
  • Dust acting as a thermal insulator and impeding airflow, thereby reducing heat sink and fan performance.
  • Poor airflow including turbulence due to friction against impeding components, or improper orientation of fans, can reduce the amount of air flowing through a case and even create localised whirlpools of hot air in the case.
  • Poor heat transfer due to a lack of, or poor application of thermal compounds.

    My emachine shuts itself off, fan working ok, help help


    Hi there. When you turn on your system, enter the BIOS setup screen. Depending on your BIOS, you may have a section that tells you the PC Health Status. If you do, you can check what temp your processor is, and it may even let you adjust the warning temp, (it may be set too low). Some BIOS's will shut down a machine automatically if this temp is reached, to save the integrity of the system.

    Yes, you may have a faulty power supply. Try testing it with another and see if the same thing happens. Also, make sure that your power supply is connected to your motherboard properly. Easiest way is to just disconnect it from the motherboard, check for any bent/broken pins, then just click it firmly back into place.

    If you need me to clarify anything, just post a comment.
