Cooling fan for a presario cq5621wm dont work


Central Processing Unit chips have a tendency to overheat when used for long periods of time. This is why virtually all desktop processors come installed with cooling systems that include a cooling fan. However, cooling fans are not invincible. They can burn out if they are not cleaned often and properly. To clean the fan in a Compaq Presario desktop, there is some light disassembling involved to gain access to your computer's CPU fan.

Turn off your Presario desktop and disconnect the power cord from its socket. Wait 10 to 15 minutes before you begin disassembling your computer. Attach an electro-static discharge wrist strap to your wrist and attach the wire clip to the outer casing of the desktop. This helps prevent damage to your computer caused by static electricity. Rotate the desktop so the back panel is facing you. Place the desktop on its left side. Remove the two Phillips-head thumb screws from the right side of the computer's back panel. Grasp the molded grip on the side access panel and slide the panel away from the desktop. This will reveal the interior components of your computer. Locate the cooling fan assembly attached to the back panel of your computer. Grasp the power cable extending from the fan, follow the cable to its connector on the motherboard and disconnect it from the motherboard. Locate the locking tabs on either side of the air duct assembly. Insert a small flat-head screwdriver into the notches on each tab and disengage each tab. Remove the air duct once the air duct assembly comes loose. Repeat this procedure in reverse to install the new cooling fan assembly.
This might not be your specific desktop computer it might give some insight into repair or removal

How to clean the fan of my computer


Regular maintenance of your Compaq Presario laptop helps to keep the machine running properly.


Keeping the fans clean is especially important, because the fans blow out hot air and bring in fresh air to cool down the laptop.


Fans attract dust, however, which can slow them down, resulting in a hot laptop.

If the laptop overheats, vital parts can cease functioning altogether.


Consequently, keeping your laptop's fans clean is crucial.


or you might want to remove it to get it clean


HP Presario C500 is a laptop that, like most other laptops, requires a clean, functioning fan in order to work properly.


If your fan is too full of dust to function properly or needs to be replaced because it is no longer working, then your computer could be in danger of overheating and crashing.


Instead of having to purchase a new laptop because your C500's fan has failed, remove it and clean the fan or replace it with a new one.


Turn off your computer and unplug all the cords and cables from it, even the power cable.


Turn the laptop over and remove the battery, then remove all the screws at the bottom of the computer with a Phillips-head screwdriver.


Remove the two face plates from the bottom of the computer and you'll see the hard drive and RAM below.

The face plates will come out easily once the screws are removed.


Remove the two screws holding the hard drive in place and then lift the hard drive out.


Remove the screw found directly below the hard drive.


Turn the laptop over again and pop off the keyboard.

If all the screws at the bottom of the computer where removed, then the keyboard will come right out.


Remove all the screws underneath the keyboard and case and then lift the case enough to access the fan assembly in your HP Presario C500.


Unhook the cable coming from the fan into the motherboard and remove the screws holding the fan in place, then pop the fan out of the computer.


Hope this helps

What will be the possible cause when my laptop compaq presario C700 is automatically turning off?


If the laptop shuts down and won't boot up until it has cooled down, then the CPU is overheating and goes into thermal shutdown. This is caused by either a faulty fan or the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust.
If this is not fixed then eventually the CPU will fail completely.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely if not then replace the fan.
If the fan and heatsink is clogged with dust then remove the dust from the fan and heatsink fins.

Compaq Presario X6000 middle fan not running when connected to system board. removed and tested and it works. Why is not getting power from board?


What middle fan are you talking about?
The case fan?
There should be at least two power connectors on the motherboard for a case fan. Try another.
It would be really unusual for the power connector to fail. Perhaps there is a loose wire in the fan connector that comes loose when you try to connect it to the motherboard.
