Yes it can. Just you need to buy a new one that your motherboard supports and has the socket size for.

Shut down due to overheat.it would not start anymore.even does not charge its battery.a friend said there is wrong in start button because it burn.please help.


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with 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 sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Hp desktop keeps crashing


Agreed not a lot of info, but you may not know what is going on, so s'okay.

There are three main reasons for desktop computer failure;

1) The computer is dirty inside.
Over 80 percent of the personal computers in my shop, suffer from this 'ailment'.

What happens?
The Processor overheats, and turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
This is because there is a fail safe feature built-in. Keeps the Processor from burning up.

The hardware components inside your desktop computer, (i.e., Processor, motherboard chipset, Ram Memory, graphics chipset, {Integrated graphics}, or graphics card, etc.), are cooled by AIR.

When dust, dirt, hair, food crumbs, spider webs,you name it; clog the cooling system for the computer, the temperature inside goes up tremendously. Especially for the Processor.

[ I just cleaned out an old Dell desktop computer, for a store. Worst one I have seen in 14 years. Had 3/4 of an Inch of hair, dust, dirt, and junk, on the bottom of the computer case. The computer case fans were so clogged with 'dust bunnies', I could NOT see them. The Processor fan was one dust ball, and the Heatsink underneath looked like a solid block. Couldn't see the fins.

Q-tips, a soft small brush, and THREE cans of compressed air for computers, later, the computer is working fine again ]

Start with this, then if it does not sure the problem, state back in a Comment.

ONE:
Unplug the computer from power.

TWO: FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
(Don't know? State in a Comment)

THREE: Post the computer manufacturer NAME, and Model Number. I'll tell you how to open the computer case.

(It's on the back of the computer case, (Tower), next to the Windows product key, OR up on the side of the computer tower.
For an HP, or Compaq computer it is the Product Number.
It is in the white Service Tag, and is P/N )

Samsung R519 shuts down unexpectadly


Suspect Samsung R519 is dirty inside.

http://www.cnet.com.au/samsung-r519-339300512.htm

The cooling system for the Samsung R519 is the Cooling Tube, Heatsink, and Fan Assembly.

The Fan Assembly consists of a Fan, and surrounding cage. (Shroud)

The Heatsink is a thin piece of metal, that has Tall, Thin, fins protruding from it.

The fan's blades, center hub, and surrounding cage may become clogged with 'Gunk'
{'Gunk' = Dirt, dust, hair, food crumbs, lint, etc}

The fins of the Heatsink may become clogged. In-between the fins, and all over the fins.

{ The Heatsink absorbs heat. It then radiates the heat way through the Tall, Thin, fins }

When a Processor overheats, (Surpasses it's Thermal Limit), it turns off.
(BIOS turns it off)
This is a fail safe feature built in. Keeps the Processor from burning up.

With the cooling system being clogged, the Processor overheats.

Solution is to clean the laptop THOROUGHLY. I don't believe at this time a can of compressed air for computers, blo-wing air from the outside, will help.

It will just push the 'Gunk' in tighter.

The laptop needs to be disassembled, and thoroughly cleaned out.
It may, or may not need new Thermal Paste for the Processor, and graphics chipset.

(If the laptop has been cleaned recently, and has this problem, it's because the 'tech' probably didn't replace the Thermal Paste.
Thermal Paste will dry up over time, and lose it's thermal conductivity properties )

Do you wish to attempt this cleaning procedure yourself?
If so post back in a Comment, and prepare for a LOT of reading.

(The R520 is VERY similar )

http://forum.notebookreview.com/samsung/117192-samsung-x20-cleaning-cooler-fan.html

The above is for a Samsung X20. Posted, because I would like you to look at the last photo on the page. Here you see an average finned Heatsink, and the 'Gunk' it can collect.

Maximus motherboard with intel x38 chipset won't boot


There's a chance of overclocking, ram failure, bios failure, cpu overheat, power supply problem,etc.. But in the first step, remove everything which are inserted on the board, like power cables, processor, rams, bios battery, Pci cards, sound cards, etc.. and clean them using soft brush, also clean the mother board, there might be dust clogging the chipsets like resistors, transistors and capacitors, and reinsert everything after cleaning... I hope this will help if there's only a small problem except circuit short... Good luck...

Graphic card proble

Graphics Card


Hi,

Looks like heat related problem on two possible areas.
1. The LCD monitor itself, probably a cold solder or overheated capacitor either in the power supply or inverter circuits; or
2. The video card heatsink isn't getting enough ventilation. If it's got a small blower fan, it might be stuck, burned out or simply clogged with dust.

You would need to open the units for a look and see.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things went or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
