System fan error


If you have replaced the fan and you are still getting a "Fan Error" then you have replaced the wrong fan. The system fan is not fitted to the top of the processor, it is usually fitted to the case.

The fan has been very noisy especially when I boot the machine, do I have to replace it? what are steps of replacing


This depends on what "fan" you are talking about. If it is something that is part of the computers case then the manufacturer may replace this for free. If it is a fan on something internal such as the fan on the video card or even the processor, these can be replaced but are a little more difficult to deal with. You will have to find the exact size fan and try to replace them. If the part that the fan belongs to is not too old, I would contact the manufacturer just incase the part can be replaced by them.

How do i replace the fan or can I


It really depends on the fan. If it is the fan that is sitting on top of the processor you can see if you can find a replacement fan for that heatsink or just replace the heatsink with a new one. If it is the case fan then take the fan out and take it to the nearest electronic store and match the size. It is a very easy swap.

CPU fan error at boot.. Spin fan manually at power up and it works. Why is this? Fan continues to run just fine until computer is powered down


The fan needs to be replaced. When you provide the "umph" to start the fan, it is able to continue by itself. The exposure to heat and the accumulation of dust and dirt has begun to interfere with its ability to start from a stopped position.

The fan should be replaced with an identical fan - preferably from a new CPU heat sink. Do not replace the entire heat sink unless you are prepared to clean the CPU and apply new thermal grease, etc. It is far easier (and probably just as good) to replace the fan only by removing both the old and new fans and swapping out.

Eventually, starting the fan by hand will no longer allow the fan to run by itself. It is better to make the repair now than have the fan fail and cause the CPU to over heat - possibly catastrophically.

Good luck!

I have fan failure. It has been making a strange


This is probably because the fan has most likely 'died'. I would replace the fan because you don't what your computer to start to freeze up, overheat etc...

Ijust replaced the cpu fan and now the computer won't boot - it just flashes the gateway logo


make sure that the power reqs for the fan are the same as one you replaced and make sure that the new fan is the same prong (3 or 4). Also make absolutely sure you plugged the new fan power supply inti the CPU fan slot

The fan is very noisy


The post begs for the obvious answer: Replace the fan.

Now to be more polite, first you need to identify the failing fan and replace it.

A desktop system can have several fans. Case/processor fan (you can test to see if this is the effected fan by unplugging it for a minute or two from the motherboard (a couple minutes will not hurt the system).

The video card may have a fan on it (Often on the underside if a mini tower) Some video card fans can be easily removed but finding replacement fans can be a challenge. Normally if a video card fan fails, replace the video card.

Most often, the failing fan is in the power supply unit or PSU. If you are handy with electrical components, you can remove the PSU, remove the fan and replace it. If you are not handy electrically, replace the PSU.

Higher end system may have card cage fans to help cool hard drive/expansion cards and others have fans specifically to coll hard drives.

Most manufacturers have spare parts where you can buy parts or you can use google to find specific replacement parts or fan suppliers.
