Intermittently the power button constant orange fan full speed

7 days ago when i went turn the cumputer on after maybe giving a little blow where i saw house dust the fan came on at full speed and the computer failed to start and orange power button stayed on. Eventually i can get the computer to start with a green  light and the computer is working in its normal highly efficient way. When i hit restart on my computer i am left with a constant green light and the monitor light is yellow I have taken out memory cards and put them back in. I have contacted dell but they wanted to undertake a £25  BIOS test and Then maybe charge me £70 to repair the switch My computer is 4 years old and more may go wrong   Can just leave my machine on allthe time or have you any ideas of how i might remedy my problem thank you

Try removing the battery from the motherboard if its not soldered and leave it for an hour then out it back in, that might reset you bios and fix your problem.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

Blown fuse on circuit board. Take one side off, find the board. Fuse is water tight sealed. Remove the seal and replace fuse. This seems to be a rather common problem, but coleman doesn't give any help on it. There are only aprox 7 screws that hold the case together. One little one in under the decal on the front just blow the knob. THERE IS NO NEED TO TAKE THE KNOB OFF.

42 inch lg tv powers on,goes off after about 30 seconds


I have the same problem, I just spoke with LG Customer service. They had me unplug the power cord, hold down the power button for thirty seconds, plug back in and turn it on, this DID NOT work for me, but maybe it will work for you.

Good Luck! Mine is going to a service shop, maybe what they tell me I can post and it will help you if you have not gotten your tv fixed yet!

The heat/AC fan will not go on.


When you put the fan on full speed it normally bypasses the resistor. This sounds like a bad blower motor

Good Luck

E-Machine T6216 PSU fan runs, computer will not boot


Giving the fact that your fan is constantly running and you had an electrical spike you should take it in to be looked at. If it overheats then the motherboard will go and it will cost more to fix it than to buy a new one.
