Re: Fan noise

Hi, have you checked for the Q-FAN in the BIOS (press DELETE just when you start the PC to get into the bios)... Also what you could do is install a quieter fan, from Asus you have the SILENTSQUARE which is very big and silent, if not you could try out ZALMAN too they have very good products that will keep the noise down... on the other hand here in Europe we have XILENCE, cheaper brand and very effective too. Check it out online or at your local store...

Re: Fan noise

It depends on your CPU. As far as I know, some Pentium 4 has it - Enhanced Intel speedstep Technology. If your CPU supports it, you need to enable it in the BIOS. Good luck.

If you're not getting a beep code then you can be almost certain the problem does not lie with any of your hardware aside from your CPU.

It is possible your CPU is overheating, in which case you can try to increase the fan speed in the CMOS setup. For further troubleshooting I recommend using isopropyl alcohol to remove the old thermal paste from the heatsink and CPU die, and apply a new, small, pea-sized dab of thermal paste to the CPU die (after which you remount and lock into place the heatsink and CPU fan).

Sometimes these startup problems are very simple, and since you said the fan slows down rather than stopping, it could simply be you have a loose connection somewhere. I'd start with the PSU cables for the motherboard and CPU, and then the fan-monitoring plugs on the motherboard.

Also, it never hurts to load the default CMOS setup, and if you have any expansion cards you'll want to reseat all of them.

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

The CPU fan is always running in all PC's - if it didn't then the CPU would over heat and the PC would crash. If the PC is not shutting down when instructed then something is preventing the operating system from carrying out the command - for example a program running in the background.
I would suggest run a virus scan first (make sure your anti virus is up to date first). Post a reply how you get on, with the results.

Try plugging the CPU fan into one of the other fan ports on the motherboard. If the fan still does not work, then the fan is bad. If it does work then the circuitry that controls the cpu fan speed is bad. You can try turning off speed control in BIOS and see if the fan works again in the cpu fan plug.

Are you sure all your cables are hooked up correctly on your flat ribbon make sure the wire with the red line is in the #1 position. If this is correct try disconnecting the cable and power and it see if the problem goes away.

It is possible this is caused by overheating. Check the power supply fan first, probably in the back of your computer tower. Do you feel any airflow? If so, the next thing to check would be the CPU fan/heat sink. Many motherboards have a temperature gauge software nowadays, or you can download one for free online to see how hot your CPU is running.

2 Possible solutions:
  1. Replace Power Supply if there is no air flow.
  2. Put in a new Processor Heatsink/Fan

Processor fan doesn't start


No, it's not normal. Make sure you have the cpu fan plugged into the proper mb plug. It should not be plugged into a chassis fan plug or your cpu will severely overheat. On the mb there should be either a 3 pin or 4 pin that is marked cpu fan. It will look exactly like the chassis fan pin group but that one will be marked cha fan. If it is plugged into the proper area then you may have a faulty cpu fan. Replace with a new one and see if that fixes the problem. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
