Computer doesnt start

I just changed CPU fan on my computer from a standard intel fan to a zalman fan, after 1 hour of bending and fighting to get the fan in... the cpu fan starts spinning, the harddrives seems like they are booting up... But no signal to the usb and the videocard doesnt seem to work anymore >.< the usb-problem might only be that windows didnt boot up yet, so the external devices doesnt get any contact... but why no signal to the monitor??? ->

Yes can only echo other solution, you should have easily been able to replace fan, so you have probably damaged the mobo, or unseated your graphics card. But more than likely the circuitry to the agp slot and usb connections are damaged

It sounds like your struggles may have damaged the motherboard. See other issues in this forum with this motherboard - partcularly with bowing of the board. Too much bowing can cause internal traces in the PCB to break. Only way to tell now is have it professionally looked at.

Zalman VF2000 LED fan starts then stops right after boot


Sounds like a defective fan, something having to do with the thermal probe, it causes the fan to speed up when cpu gets hot and to slow down when the cpu is cool. I suggest returning it for another one

Changed motherboard


when you boot your computer open up the bios menu, i forget which tab it is under but there should be an option called S.M.A.R.T fan or SCSI if it is disabled enable it this should fix it, if you do not have this option or if it doesnt work this is a link to a fan control program called speedfan http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php

Connecting my PSU to my Motherboard


The bare essentials to start a computer are PSU, Motherboard, CPU, RAM and Video.

Its possible the PSU arrived DOA. Though I've only had 2 DOA PSU's in the 15 years I've been building custom computers.

Hope this helps.

Cpu fan not running fast enough


This will depend on the motherboard you are using.

however, you need to make sure that the CPU fan lead is plugged into the correct plug on the motherboard... for example, I have an Intel 975xbx motherboard and it has 4 fan plugs, but only one of those is for the CPU. The others are for front/rear/top fans. If the CPU fan is plugged into one of the secondary ports, the CPU fan wont speed up correctly.

Also, some BIOS settings in the motherboard allow you to enable or disable automatic fan speed adjustment, and also set the temperature points.

Cpu cooling


The ZALMAN CNPS9700 is the best air cooler on the market.It looks cool and is quite easy to install. I have one in my box and I have 34 degrees with an Intel Quad core running 1 Gigahertz over stock.

Fan noise


It depends on your CPU. As far as I know, some Pentium 4 has it - Enhanced Intel speedstep Technology. If your CPU supports it, you need to enable it in the BIOS. Good luck.
