The CPU fan is always running in all PC's - if it didn't then the CPU would over heat and the PC would crash. If the PC is not shutting down when instructed then something is preventing the operating system from carrying out the command - for example a program running in the background.
I would suggest run a virus scan first (make sure your anti virus is up to date first). Post a reply how you get on, with the results.

SOURCE: unable to restart computer

The little green light is telling you that there is power to the Motherboard (MB) I would reset the CMOS on the Motherboard...boot into the BIOS to check that the hard drive is seen by the PC.and go from there...
Here is a link to the Asus Manual which shows you how to Clear the CLRTC..(CMOS) Look for section 4.3 on Jumpers.Clearing the memory built into the MB just sets it back to the defaults so dont worry about hurting anything while you perform this task...I can also tell you that When you clear this that there is no bells or whistles clashing cymbals or otherwise signal that tells you you have accomplished the task...you have to have faith that its done...Simply move the plastic jumper to the prescribed location and count to three then move it back to its original location...Secondly these parts are small and the writing on the MB is smaller so sometimes a magnifying glass is essential...Let me know how it works for you..

Asus also has the Recover Pro utility which is an always available recovery tool. It stores user data, applications and the operating system in the host-protected area of the hard drive. Users can easily recover system to their original factory conditions or to a more recent state without restore CDs. No need to worry about losing data due to virus attacks.

Why does my pc's power light indicator keeps blinking red (2 beeps) after it powers on and begins to boot, running for about a minute or two?


Hi

This means your PC is doing a Thermal Shut down, the CPU is getting to hot, this means the fan is not running at all or fast enough, or is dusty causing loss of cooling to the CPU.

To fix this open the case look at the fan if its running as it gets louder I would say in your case it is, you need to remove all the dust from the fan and the heatsink I use a small USB fan from poundland (UK) this should stop this error.

Computer idles high then shuts down


When you say "idles high" do you mean you hear fans spinning faster or louder? If so, a fan spinning at higher than normal speeds is indicative of components/chips being run aggressively causing them to run at much higher temperatures. You may want to look into getting temperature monitoring software like CPU-Z to monitor the temperatures of your CPU and GPU. These components are the most common ones to be running at high temperatures. If any fan has failed on them the secondary fans (if there is one) will run at much higher speeds to compensate. Your PC may have a safety precaution to automatically shut down if certain temperatures are reached to prevent permanent damage to the components. Are you getting any blue screens before it shuts down?

Following are the reasons for overheating, just take care of these things::
- Clean the Processor fan, Heat Sink and other peripherals
- Use High Speed fans
- Use CPU Heat Sink Paste in the processor

- Stop Overclocking your CPU
- Make sure your Heat Sink is placed properly above the processor
- Make sure your dint restrict the speed of CPU fan.
- Use Additional Cooling Units
- Shut down your computer at least two hour a day
Finally i will suggest you to get system utility program like PC Fresher. because it is a very useful tool that cleans your computer of temp files, history and cookies. Its also used to fix any registry errors that cause of overheating

PThe computer turn off after 10 minutes of use, and then indicated that a problem is with the hard disk. Indicated, insert the instalation cd, but i don't have it.


ok if the computer works for about 10 minutes then shuts down then i would say its not the hard drive but the cpu fan. when your cpu heats up it shuts down when it reaches a certain temperature to protect itself. open your case and check that the cpu fan is working if not check it is plugged in correctly by unplugging it then plugging it back in, somtimes the connections can become oxidised and loose contact. if your cpu fan is working then let me know and we will try something else. let me know how you go.

Our fan is constantly running now for the last last 3 days when our computer is on. We have the computer on all day and shut it down at night. It is louder than normal. Why is this and can it be fixed. ...


Its not a problem if you have the computer running all day long. Get an additional fan for your computer. An additional fan will reduce the noise as more fans running at low speed produce low sound that a single fan at high speeds. Make sure that the CPU is free from dust. More the DUST, higher the heat and higher the noise.

CPU shutting down.


Hi MonaMona,
Replacing a CPU fan is easy, but be carefull, the CPU will have old thermal grease on it, so unlatch the CPU at the same time you take the fan off. Because the CPU will come up with the fan, so unlatch the CPU pins, to release the CPU pins, when taking the fan off. And when putting the new fan on the CPU, & the fan nust be smaller then 80mm, the sell just CPU fans. Make sure you put on thermal grease on the CPU, so it won't over heat & will protect your CPU, also don't cake on the grease. Put on a small amout & spread it on the CPU thin. Let me know if that does it for you.

Good Luck with it.

Problem with my Computer


Is this a desktop or a laptop?

In either case, it could be one of your fans is not functioning. There is a fan on top of the heatsink on the CPU. If it's not turning then the CPU will shut itself down before it's destroyed...this is a good thing. If this is a desktop then the case fan may have failed. Make certain both of these fans are turning. You will need to open the computer to see the CPU fan.

If they are both turning then it's possible the CPU heatsink fins are filled with dust. This prevents airflow. If this is the case, use your vaccuum cleaner to get the dust out. This will be much easier if you have a desktop, opening laptops is more involved.

Please let us know what you find.
