Computer won't boot

OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith 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 surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

CPU Fan Speed high

What Could be happening inside when you hear the cpu fan running at a high speed always ?

Ever thought about it ? Ok let me give you a clue on this. To understand this issue you need to understand how the hardware works on various situations.

Check the Heat settings in bios and look for the variance.

Bios can instruct a CPU fan to run faster only when there are critical lssues of heating.

The CPU starts running on a realtime 16bit more known as SMM mode.

This is a feature which is inbuilt to support the continuous performance of the Processor even while temperature level rises.

The instruction is moved through the Bios, and can be a bios related issue.

Worst case, Flash the Bios once for all and the issue will be solved.

If its a very old system flashing the bios could be also a problem, still you can seek the help of a Hardware Engineer to get this accomplished.

Got a screen message that fan is not working. Now when I turn on the computer it just beeps at me. What do I need to do to solve this problem?

Open cover and switch it on, check if fans turn (assume CPU fan), if not switch it off and remove from mains, replace faulty fan or clean the fan with a small brush and vacuum cleaner might be clogged with dust. If this fails check bios settings for CPU temperature and adjust accordingly, do not exceed recommended CPU temperature, or CPU will overheat and eventually be destroyed.

Computer shuts down and beeps due to over heating and bios shuts down machine as a precaution.

When I turn mine on, its says CPU fanfailure and system fan failure...what do u I do?

well your fan that sits on the CPU is not working properly and or the system fan...So you will have to get them replaced because the sytem know it will run hot if not can go to a computer repair store near you and take the computer with you so they can open it and look at the fans and give you a price range or you can call dell because if it is new then its still under warrenty to get it replaced

Fan noisy at steady high speed

Try replacing the cpu fan. The reason why the cpu fan is noisy its because the bearings are rusty and need some lubricants. But in this case you have to replace them. For me there's no need to upgrade your bios. Its just a hardware problem.

System fan has failed

Your system's fan has failed. If it is under warranty, you need to have HP made aware of this failure.

it's actually good that your cpu fan is runing at it's full speed. Usually only the manufacturer issues firmwares. Lookforward Gigabyte for the update. thanx

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
