Fan not found

When I turn the system on and I am on the diagnostics screen an error pops up saying system fan not found. The fan powers on though. I looked inside and it was plugged into a power connector that you would plug into a disk drive and there was another connector that was not plugged in but there does'nt appear to be any place on the board to plug it in. Can you please give me some direction?

Yes the fan was spinning. I found a soulution though. The right connecter did not fit the motherboard so someone rigged it to run but the motherboard did not see it because it was hooked straight to the atx power supply. I just broke the plastic off of where the original fan was plugged in and with the pins still intact I pushed the replacement fan connector down on it and the motherboard found the fan. Sweet Success!!!!

you need to get pressurized air and blow the vents to remove dust particles causing over heat. Or if possible remove keyboard to expose cooling fan and chip and use pressurized air to blow off dust

'I turn the laptop on and a god-awful clicking noise'

That sound you're hearing is the arm inside the hard drive. I'm 99% positive the hard drive is no good (It's a physical problem, not software). There is no way to fix it except replace the whole hard drive. The good news is that your machine may be under a manufacturers warranty for a year or more. Go to the fujitsu website and do a warranty inquiry. Hard drives are usually covered under factory warranties.

My Imac A1058 won't start up only the fans work


Never heard of before, though power there.

The "new device found" screen keeps popping up


Inspect for damaged pin on INPUT 1 socket. (left most of the three HDMI connectors)
A quick pull on the cable can damage the pins.
=== If you see mis-aligned pins then please power off the set before making corrective action. ===
============== Here's a textbook instruction from Mitsubishi
If the New Device Found Screen Displays No HDMI Control Option If the New Device Found screen shows no option for HDMI Control, one of these conditions applies: • HDMI Control is turned off in the menus of the new device Action: a. Highlight EXIT and press ENTER to close the New Device Found screen. b. Display the device's setup menus and enable the device's CEC capabilities. c. Wait for the TV's New Device Found screen to appear again. d. If the New Device Found screen does not appear, power off the device. Power on the device and wait for the New Device Found screen to display with the HDMI Control option.
Next time you see the NEW DEVICE FOUND screen pop up.
Toggle the CEC field (on the right side of the pop up) to OFF.

I recently moved and when i went to start up my computer it takes me to a blue screen say memory is being dumped. Prior to that though there is a screen saying that a "0 drive" can not be found. Any idea...


Your 0 Drive is the main hard disk drive in your computer. That is where Windows is installed. If the pc doesn't see it, it cannot start. If you've moved, the hard drive cable or power connection may have come loose. You can try opening the case and reseating all connections and see if that works. If not, it's possible your hard drive is damaged and not working.

Compaq Presario S3040SE PC Desktop was working fine. when i turned it on next day screen says operating system not found. restart. now monitor wont kick on and hard drive light doesnt come on. only power...


Normaly when you get the error that the operating system cant be found, it is a indication that the hardrive has either gone bad, or somehow some of the system files got deleted. I would say though since the hard drive light wont come on it could be the hardrive has shut down completely. But you still should see the company image of your computer when you start it up, (the bios screen)

A bad hardrive would be my first guess, 2nd problem if its not your harddrive would be a new power supply.

check the pressue switch and make sure that nothing is in the fan that would cause it to not draw. I have seen water inside of them at times due to the high efficentcy of the units. let me know if this does not solve it please.

Go to emachines.com and see if there is a firmware update for your computer BIOS. Some thermostat errors are cause by a BIOS fault that can be corrected with a firmware upgrade.
