Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello, I have an E-machine D4362 that has started intermittently shutting down. I did some troubleshooting & found the CPU and case fan not running while the machine is up & running, the CPU heat sink was extremely burn you hot. So, I shut down the computer before it burns up the CPU. I then changed the power supply, this did not fix. I checked the fans on a 12V power source & they work fine. The motherboard is not allowing the fans to run, any suggestions?

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.

I turn on the computer and it may run some times for about 10 or 15 min. and then shut down i was wondering if i need a bio's update or what i have two hard drives in the computer xp pro on 1 and vista...


It could be overheating. After it shuts down, restart it, and enter BIOS SETUP, and look for a "PC Health" or "Status" entry on the menu. If you're lucky, it will report the current CPU temperature, and the speed of the fans, and the settable temperature at which it will shut itself down.

Check the capacitors on the motherboard -- any capacitor with a "dome" on top, instead of perfectly-flat, is a leaking capacitor that is intermittently failing.

Computer is a Lenovo TC M52 P4 / 3.2 - I have added a sound card, a PCI express Geforce graphics card and a NIC card. The problem seems to be overheating as it only shuts down like this during the summer...


The case fan should start running as soon as you turn on the computer. I would replace the fan with a higher capacity (CFM). If you have a case that can take 2 case fans, I would install the send fan. Also with the case off, check that the CPU cooler fan is functioning. With the quick shut off, I would suspect that the CPU cooler fan is not functioning. I could be impeded by dust. Vacuum and blow out any dust on the motherboard, fans and battery fan while you have the case off.
This should aleviate the shutoff problem due to overheating.
Let me know if this solves the problem.
Please rate this solutution. Thanks.

E-Machines D4362 PC Desktop cpu fan noise too nisy! how to change the bios setting?


Hello there:
ok first lets start with the fan if it is noisy i would first open the case and remove the fan and see if it is really dirty and if it is clean it out really good then reinstall it and try it again butif it continues to make this noise i would suggest getting a new one they only cost about 15 dollars. ok
now for the bios issue when you first start your e-machine you should see a couple of things at the bottom of the screen and one of them is the setup which is the bios setup and change area so simply hit the appropriate key and you will go into bios then using the tab key this will tab between different bios sections once you have made your changes press the f-10 key to save and reboot he machine *****NOTE**** Do not make any changes to the bios if you are not 100 % sure of what you are doing changing the settings in bios can cause the machine to stop responding or not working at all ok?
I hope this is very helpful for you Please keep me posted if you need any further assistance
Best regards Michael

Won't Start


This happened to my to my HP Media center Edition PC. I'd have to unplug the power from the outlet, let it stop flashing and the power up again. It would run for a short time and then shut off with the annoying amber / blue flashing light.

I found it was a heat problem on mine - specifically, the CPU cooler. After shutting down and opening the PC, check to see 1) if the CPU fan is running smoothly and 2) if there is a lot of dust and dirt on the CPU cooling fan and heat sink (and rest of the case for that matter).

Gently clean / vacuum the insides of the case AND power supply as best you can. Carefully vac the fan blades and heat sink to clear the dirt and dust that prevents the heat from being blown away by the fans.

When complete, you might even want to take the PC outside and reverse the vacuum so that air can be blown into tight places in the case. A can og compressed air can do the job instead, too.

Reassemble and start up as normal. Good luck!

Emachine heating issues


Hi rebecca_fran,
Well the system is shutting down for a reason but before you run off & buy a new CPU fan I want you to try something.
Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open your case & ground your self by simply touching any bare metal. (The bottom of the case will do).
Please remove the memory currently in your system. If you have never done this before please check within the manual for your eMachine. (There should be a section on how to install memory).
You can also click on this uTube link, it’s a bit long but you can skip through the video.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsXNT6fnHmM&feature=related
If you have some canned air blow out the memory slots.
(Do not place your fingers on the memory contacts at any time).
Re-seat the memory, firmly but gently. Leave the case opened & plug in the power cord. Turn on the PC. See if the fan runs & the system doe’s not shut down. If it still does replace the CPU fan.

Your PC uses an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ / 2.3 GHz CPU.
Here is a replacement AMD CPU fan & assembly.
http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/std/sku=dual_core_cpu_fan.html

The CPU will come with thermal tap on its underside. (No need to buy thermal grease).
(Make sure you remove the old thermal grease from the top of the CPU). Use a clean rag with a little alcohol on it. (Not dripping). Allow time for drying. Do not scratch the CPU surface.

Good luck rebecca_fran!

Emachine Will not boot


different beeping patterns are codes which indicate what part of the hardware has failed (ram, video card, cpu, ect). the fan failure would not cause beeps, and would not cause the cpu to fail unless already in windows. if you could find out the manufacturer of your motherboard you could check with them about what the paticular pattern of beeps which you are getting mean.

Laptop shuts off after powered on omnibook 6000 It runs for a few seconds and shuts down .... it that a bad power supply or what?


You might have a broken or dirty CPU fan. The CPU heat sink fan is responsible to cool down your CPU while it is on. If it is broken or stuck(dirty), then your machine will power off automatically preventing CPU damage or worse-case-scenario:FIRE caused by "burnout".

Your CPU heat sink might not be mounted on your LT properly. Also causing overheating; thus shutting down.

Its a laptop right ? Right! Another thing you could try is to unplug the battery, and let it run from AC power only and see if it makes any difference.

Cpu fan noisy /chip fan fail


You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.

Hope that fixed ya...
