    The fan is on the mainboard just under the pci-e graphics card. Looks like an inch squared. It's a Foxconn Nforce board. 300+amd 64. I run Xp pro with SP2. Running a sli-tv tuner hybrid card & 3 IDE dricves, 2 SATA's & my doptical combo.

    Thank you Howardepgco :) Just wondering if anything has overheated too much? If so a new fan wouldn't fix the problem. Wonder what the damage is? Thanks again.

  • doomkinguk Dec 01, 2008

    Thanks Howardepgco but the fan doesn't sit on the heatsink but slots in the heatsink. It cannot be high profile as my GeForce 6600 SLI 256mb pci-e graphics card rests avove it!

    It's definately on the board. It's not the cpu fan (which works well) or on the graphics card. The heatsink got very hot & after BSOD screen i wonder if anythings overheated? It posts up to just after memory check ok. Just the familiar bios alteration beep then that's it.

    Is the fan on your video card or processor?

That's a chipset fan and cooler. I found a good one on Newegg and it's only 7 bucks and it's a brand name no Chinese junk.

    Yeah I wonder too.Maybe a motherboard is a good idea. That chip could give you lots of grief later on if it got too hot.

Try this solution, you have the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD), which you cannot see on a green screen. It can be caused by a setup problem on the motherboard if you are sing SATA drives.

16d4a0e.jpg


Time Required: 10 to 15 minutes.
Tools needed: Precision tools, Small philips screwdriver, Case opening tool or a plastic stick, or your fingernails.
Difficulty: Easy

Step 1. Remove the back cover, battery and sim card.

Step 2. Are you replacing the screen? Or are you looking into the keys or the mainboard?

If you wish to get to the display Go to step 3.

If you wish to get to the keys and the mainboard Go to step 4.


Getting to the display.

Step 3.
To replace the display, unscrew two Philips screws from the bottom of the display, they are under two soft tabs that you have to remove from on top of them.

Step 3.1. Use your fingernails or case opening tool to open the display cover.

Begin from the back and work towards the top, open the back and the sides, do not force open the front its held in place from there and you need to pull the plastic cover off looking at the picture below to the left

Step 3.2. After the cover is off, you get to the back of the display, on the top you have a few speakers etc.

Step 3.3. From the bottom release the connector by carefully pulling the board upwards.

Step 3.4. From the top, use a flat screwdriver to get the speakers out of their slots so the circuit board with the display comes off.

Step 3.5. The display is now free from the cover, you can remove it from the case.

Getting to the mainboard and keys.
Step 4. With the back cover, battery and sim card out. On the back of the phone, there 4 Philips screws. Marked with red dots.

Step 4.1. With the 4 small screws out, start using the case opener tool or your fingernails to release the plastic casing from the back of the phone. It is held in place similarly as the top of the phone in step 3. Begin from the sides and the bottom of the phone, the top is held in place and won't open until the sides and the bottom are lose, then you can disconnect the top part.

Step 4.2. As you release the back cover, on the side the up and down plastic key drops out remember to replace it properly when you assemble the phone.

Step 4.3. Disconnect the display cable, the mainboard is held in place by plastic clips on the top, carefully release the mainboard, you may break off a clip or two from the case, if that happens, no worries. The screws will still hold the casing together. the area is again marked in red.

By now you should have the phone completely disassembled / taken apart.

We are done.

Assemble in reverse order. Total 6 screws in this phone, 2 on display 4 on case. Held in place mostly by plastic clips.

Thank you for reading, I hope this has helped you.

Screen goes blank


This is most probaby because of a loose display cable connection .As the cable runs through the hinge slot to the mainboard of the laptop, open the laptop full and try pressing carefully on the left side of the laptop near the hinges area. this should give you the display back.

Turn on my computer, I can hear the fans, no beep noise upon starting. Screen says no signal found. I tried other monitor cables and monitor. No dice.


one of 2 things is happening a) if you have changed the cord and tried other moniters then the display port beit vga or dvi on you computer is broken you will either if you have agraphics card already installed then replace that but if you have no dedicated grapichs card you need to replace the mother bord
B) check your moniter to see if there is a source button if there is then push it to see if the image comes up repeat up to 3 times
ps: if you have a dedicated graphics card look at the back of you computer and if there are 2 different display ports be it dvi or vga (google image the terms "vga port" and "dvi port" to see what they look like) then plug it into the other on to see if the graphics card is broken

BEGINNING DUMP OF PHYSICAL MEMORY


Hi, Normally a blue screen of death (BSOD) with memory dump is indicative of a fault in the: Hardware- 1. Possibly memory; 2. video; or 3. motherboard. In some instances, Software- a. Drivers; or b. the Operating System itself. You may want to check the memory installed in your laptop. Some versions have them underneath the keyboard while most would have it at the bottom covered by a lid/plate secured with 1 or 2 small screws. The memory will spring out if you unlock the two side clips. You need to clean the little gold contacts with a pencil eraser. Re-insert back securely and try again. If the above does not correct the BSOD, you may need to replace them. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn out or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
