Heat censor gone bad

I don't know if it has completely went bad, I pulled the card that held the s-video and blew it out and blew out the CPU. so i get ready to put it back together , I put it in exactly as I took it out and I have did this before to other CPU i had, But this time i hook it up and turn on the switch, But just the fan motor on high. No blue light where its suppose to light up when it turns on or nothing on the monitor,I made sure that the heat censor was tight by just pushing over the thumb part that tighten it with. Do you think the some of those little pins got bent when i wiggled the censor, O maybe i just unplugged something that I wasn't suppose to. Please let me Know? It was my neighbors.

SOURCE: Bent CPU Pins

Line them up in the light. Pins should be evenly spaced in BOTH directions. Look at the pins at eye level and try to line them up straight very carefully, using tweezers gently nudging individual pins. Those pins are VERY fragile and if you bend them too much they'll break. Try to very gently slightly wiggle the CPU into the motherboard without pushing down. Make sure it is lined up with the orientation marker before trying this. Good luck!

Try unplugging and opening the PC and removing the mainboard battery. *It's about the size of a quarter, a little thicker though" Hit the power button about 5 times. (Mind you this will reset ther board to factory settings and you will have to go into set-up and set the time back) plug the pc back up and you may be in buisness.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Fan is running, power button with blue light is off, cpu won't boot up

Your cpu might have died. As the computer is starting tap F8 and choose last known good configuration to see if you can get it started.

I need a fuses for my durabrand home theater system and model is ht-3916. i went to radio shack and purchase a fuse 1.6 amp volt fuses and it still don't work can you please help me thank you


Do you mean it blew them again or that it didn't work and the fuse is still intact?
If it blew it again the problem is not the fuses. Instead what you have is a semi-conductor device that has developed a short and that is blowing the fuse. Check any devices in the power supply section, look for signs of damage or heat and also any devices on the heat-sink.

If the fuse did not go and it still doesn't work check the power supply only or the on-off switch.

I had the same problem on a dv9000 as well.
Did you use the laptop much on the couch/beds etc? (So the temperature went up)? My video chip became "unsoldered" by a manufacturing fault.
If above is the case, please contact your local dealer.
If not, Please try updating your videocard driver (try using save mode with networking if Windows doesn't want to startup the regular way anymore) The drivers are on HP's website, here : support.hp.com

You can try clearing the BIOS & if you don't know how, don't do it!! I doubt it would help anyway. That's an old, off brand pc, good chance the motherboard is bad.

Computer on, but no video output


sounds more like your motherboard,

unplug everything so all you have is ram (1 piece), cpu + harddrive(essential parts) no sound card, use on board graphics if you have it and if no luck then more likely the motherboard. Ihad a works machine go down before christmas with the same symptons and the problem was the motherboard

hope this helps

CPU Failure?


Try a different video card. Usually this problem is a defective or video card that has gone bad.

Dell dimension 4700 video card upgrade problem


Be careful with this computer. The cooling system works by blowing air INTO the machine over the cpu then the heat slowly comes out of the holes on the side panel (on the left side of the machine). One reason the text may be blurry is because the video card is heating up too much. This problem is specific to this machine. Most computers have the cooling fan blowing the heat out of the case and not sucking air into the case. On the plus side at least this PC is near silent right? I would know since I own this machine. Amazingly silent it is.

Shutdown


There could be any number of reasons for this to happen. However, the most likey reason - assuming that it runs for a bit, and then shuts down - is that the heatsink/fan on the CPU is not working, or not installed properly. Once the CPU heats up to a certain point, it will shut down to prevent damage. Perhaps the CPU fan as gone bad, or is completely clogged with dust.

Problems after Power Management changes


Experience a similar problem with a FIC MB. I cleared CMOS then removed MB battery for 1 hour. Restarted the unit with just the video card and hard drive installed. After unit rebooted I added sound card, network card, etc.
