Compaq presario C 700 fan runs non stop


Make sure the air vents are clear when it is operating, also use a can of compressed air to blow out the dust from the vents and fan. This should make it cool more efficiently and the fan shouldnt run as much afterward.

I HAVE A COMPAQ PRESARIO SR1339UK, THE PLASTC


you can install an other cpu cooling.
You have to find out which socket the cpu got and the size .
it has to fits to your pc case.
Look for some videos on youtube .There are some good guidlines
for cooler installin.
A cpu cooler is not very expensive but most a time a lot better than the standart cooler.

I receive an error of CPU Fan Failure upon start up and then it shuts off. I will start it again and it is fine. I have found on the initial start up, if I'm really quick and hit F2, it will start up ok....


It seems like your pc is overheatting. Open the case on your pc and check wheather the fan that is in top of your cpu is running. If it is not take it out and take it to the close computer shop and buy a new one. It is simple to replace a fan.

Compaq Presario X6000 middle fan not running when connected to system board. removed and tested and it works. Why is not getting power from board?


What middle fan are you talking about?
The case fan?
There should be at least two power connectors on the motherboard for a case fan. Try another.
It would be really unusual for the power connector to fail. Perhaps there is a loose wire in the fan connector that comes loose when you try to connect it to the motherboard.

Compaq Presario fan is not functioning. It is - fan is plugged into the motherboard but the fan will not run - causing my laptop to overheat - I cannot find a fan controlling software that is compatible...


sounds like a burnt up fan so you might just want to take it to your local computer tech have them replace the fan and put some new cpu compound in their and it will never over heat again

My laptop fan constantly runs help!


First, I recommend cleaning all the dust out of the cooling vents. Use an old toothbrush to brush the dust away from the vent holes and blow air through the vents using one of those compressed air cans made for cleaning keyboards. One time I worked on a Sony laptop that I had to take apart to get all the dust cleaned out of the air vent.

The second thing I recommend is to download a piece of free software called FanSpeed. Here's a link http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/SpeedFan.shtml
I'll let you read the description for yourself, but in short it allows you to monitor the temperature inside your computer and to adjust how the fans react to this temperature.
