I really doubt it. The printers run voltages up to 30 volts, and the rpms could not be enough to cool the CPU, which could overheat and be damaged or get its life shortened. And you would be sealing your printers doom.

What makes 511-cpu fan not detected and 512-chassis not detected


Are you seeing this error on a system you built or a pre-built system? If it is a pre-built system, check that the fans are running. Next check where the fans are plugged in, the CPU fan must be connected to the CPU fan connector on your motherboard. The chassis (rear case fan) only needs to be connected to the motherboard if you want the monitoring/PWM (modulated fan speed) option. If your CPU fan is powered directly from the power supply, change this.

If this is a system you built or recently updated the case, check your fan power connections, as above. Next check the fan speed. My ASUS board will give the "CPU fan not detected" error if the CPU fan speed is too slow. A different CPU fan will solve the problem. (I got my fan with the CPU; it works fine.)

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your system for more assistance.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

Motherboard power


hey, without seeing it its quite hard, if the cpu fan aint running you have either not connected the cpu fan cable up, or connected it to the wrong place,
are you sure you fitted the cpu the correct way round when you removed it,
and depending on the processor in the computer make sure you aint damaged any of the pins etc on the cpu.

if you can supply some pictures or something can probably help you better

Left side of my lenovo 3000 n200 overheating


Usually left side of the laptop is where the cpu and air bent is located. If this is overheating, try to elevate the unit to free it to get air, or clean the airways bent. If you are still get overheating clean the unit by getting into the fan or check the fan.

Crashes every 30-45 min ilet it cool down and restart


check the fan first, then the heatsink on the CPU. Clean the computer with compress air, make sure all the dust bunnies are out, and the fan is in working order.
there should be 2 fans, 1 for the CPU and 1 for the power supply.

computer failure usually cause by overheat, which cause by the defective fan.

Emachine t5230 cpu fan too fast


Hi orinzelenak,

This may seem like to simple, but try checking to see if the technician plugged the fan power supply into the correct pin for it. It sounds like the fan is plugged into a external plug directly from the power supply and not into the board, which would control the fan speed for you. Give a look, and maybe it's just that simple.

Good Luck

Fan


as fans with ball bearings in them operate, they gather dust. this dries out the lubricant in the bearings track. normally cleaning the fan would suffice to restore effectiveness just run a vacuum over the fan on a regular basis to stop the dust building up.

if you have added lubricant to the bearings you may find that more dust is now sticking to the dust that was already there reducing the fans effectiveness even more and causing more noise.

another possible reason for the increased noise is that when lubricating the fan, depending on how you did it, you may possibly have bent the fan's axle slightly again increasing vibration and noise.

personally I think it unwise to add lubricant to a ball bearing track such as that on a cpu fan as lubricants vary in viscosity and suitability for use and I wouldn't know which one to buy. If the axle has become bent, I believe it is possible to have it straightened but with the price of fans being so low I feel your best course of action would be to replace the fan and then make sure that your new fan doesn't get clogged.

Fan


instead of cleaning it by taking it apart,
try to clean it without taking the cover out.{hassle free}

tools needed:
2 cottonbuds
1 powerful blower{hair blower will do}
1 alcohol/water{used if the dirt is hardly stick in the spindle}

instruction:
hold 1cottonbud and place it between the spindle{to make spindle not to spin while cleaning}
take the other cottonbud and poke the dirt out of the spindle one by one
then use blower to blow and clean the dirt out of the fan
dip cottonbud to the alcohol solution and use it to clean the hardly poke dirt
then blow dry your fan

Fan Noise


The best solution is that you have to buy another new Fan for your pc before it move out of hand.
The fan is faulty and the little checking you have done is some how recommended for the fan to have work better but since then you have to change it for a better one before it have anything to do with your processor Malfunction.
bye.

CPU Fan.


Make Sure your thermal compound is properly placed, check the temp of your CPU. CPU might be overheating due to destroyed layer of compound and therefore Fans run faster...
