Question about AOpen AX4SG-UN Motherboard

5 Answers

Cpu overheating CPU temp is running around 31 deg C with case open and external fan blowing on it. With case closed it started climbing up to 37 before I reopened the case. Do I need to replace only the cpu and fan, or should I replace whole motherboard? I've been trying to find a board to buy but no one seems to have one. Have they stopped making them or what? Can I use another board instead? Karen

I would purchase a external fan to keep the unit cool. if your computer is functioning and the only issue is that it's over heating, you could hardwire another fan unit. this way the fan is always running and that should keep the temp down. if your having a hard time finding a board chances are they are obselete and your out of luck, however you can check around your local repair shops and you just might get lucky... please rate this

    if you can try and hard wire a fan unit inside the case as well this will only help the situation.

Hi,

Three possibilities:

  • the HSF (heatsink/fan combo) is no longer sufficiently cooling the CPU, probably dusty, clogged, the fan lubrication dried up. Remove, clean lubricate;
  • thermal runaway of the CPU (unlikely but still is a possibility);
  • temp sensor faulty. Could possibly resolve with a BIOS update/flash.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

First of all make sure that your motherboard is not overclocked. you can try to use a stronger fan and if the temperature still goes up then it only means that there is something wrong with your processor and you need to replace it.

You can just simply btry to add another fan or get a bigger fan to make the system much cooler to avoid overheating, I think they already stop making this MOBO that's why its hard to find this any store even online...

Hope that helps.........

You can try to use another fan with high cooling capability. Also you can adjust the CPU temp on the BIOS setup.

Fan speed zx6800


It depends on which fan you are talking about (CPU or Case) It would also depend on the heatsink you have fitted and the CPU that is fitted. The speed is about right for a CPU fan though. If your computer stops on it's own after a short while you may have an overheating problem. To check the CPU temp is in the correct range try CPU world website for the spec for your particular model.

You are receiving temperatures that would be considered dangerously high for the internal components of your laptop. What i would suggest doing is opening up your laptop, if you are comfortable doing so, and inspecting the heatsinks, fans, along the chassis of the laptop, under the keyboard, and anywhere that there may be dust. Clean off all the dust with a good spay with a can of compressed air and try again. If your temps are still that high I would suggest redoing the thermal paste under the heatsinks in your laptop. Not having a good application at the factory can cause issues later on down the line. I use artic silver for my thermal paste. All you have to do is follow all the instructions that come with the paste and it should be alright. If you do not see your temps go down after that, I would suggest taking your laptop in for service as there could be a potential of damaging your internal components.

It could be overheating. After it shuts down, restart it, and enter BIOS SETUP, and look for a "PC Health" or "Status" entry on the menu. If you're lucky, it will report the current CPU temperature, and the speed of the fans, and the settable temperature at which it will shut itself down.

Check the capacitors on the motherboard -- any capacitor with a "dome" on top, instead of perfectly-flat, is a leaking capacitor that is intermittently failing.

The CPU Cooler does not seem to be doing its job properly. I would suggest you use a laptop Cooling Pad. It is a tray for your laptop and has a number of cooling fans to keep your laptop well circulated.

Boots up but only runs for about a minute. Then fan runs at full speed constantly with no video. Also front panel popwer switch appears shorted. i.e as soon as you plug in the PC starts


Very well could be overheating or powersupply problem. Most Definately Hardware related. You can try opening up the case and blowing air into it from compressor. (Make sure to do this outside away from clean items). Also, check CPU fan and heatsink to make sure fairly clean. CPU fan may also be old and need to be replaced. Don't put case back on and try again. Look at CPU fan to see if moving (or struggling). If computer stays on longer then CPU fan most likely the problem. If off in same time as before then most likely the main power supply problem, in which case the only way to check this is to replace the power supply. Hope this helps, Best Regards,

Random shut down


Yes.... over heating can and will cause a system shutdown..

Download and install speedfan ( http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php ) It will most likely tell you how hot things are really getting......

Depending on what cpu you have, you may have a thermal paste problem, you may need to remove the heatsink and re-apply heatsink thermal paste to the bottom of the heatsink and reseat ontop of the cpu. This will void any warranty if you PC still has any left.

System temperature too high


Do you still have your manual? If not download it from Gigabyte at this link:http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2637
Enter your bios & open manual to page 51, "PC Health Status". Here you can monitor the CPU temp, system temp & CPU fan speed. Notice the manual shows the example of system temp to be 30degs C & current CPU Temperature is at 47degs C. One would think these temps are reasonable. My CPU fan runs between 3308Rpm & 3341Rpm. CPU @ 41deg C & MB @ 31deg C. AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ 2.21 GHz.
Suggest you try this. If your running Win XP. Open system properties. Click the Advanced tab. Click the settings button under
Startup and Recovery. Remove the check mark to the left of, Automatically restart. Windows should provide an error message if & when the system freezes. This will help in finding what is causing the system to freeze. If your CPU fan is running under 3000Rpm you might consider buying a faster fan or add a case fan to the side of the case to help bring in fresh air to blow onto the CPU fan & PCI-Express card. Here is a decent lace to look for case fans: http://www.xoxide.com/casefans.html

Motherboard problem


Chances are the CPU fan may be running too slow, dust & dirt build up under & over the fan blades can be a big factor. CPU fan could just be going. Are you over clocking the system. (IF so buy a better heatsink & fan for over clocking the system).
To check if CPU is getting too hot. Enter the bios & go to the title, "Power" page 2-28. Open Hardware monitor & check the CPU temp & mother board temp. (Make sure the case is closed in normal running conditions).
