Install extra fan


Tom, Tom,........Tom,

If I've told you once, I've told you..............

OH,......where was I?

Oh yeah............

You post solutions.
How about posting the need information for your query?

Laptop manufacturer name, and model number.
(Bottom of laptop - Model Number)

Right off hand; A laptop that uses two cooling fans already?
I don't know if I would tax the DC - DC circuit on the laptop anymore, by adding a third fan.

Is this fan to take the place of the fried harddrive?

Hmmm,.........
The extra cooling fan would use at least 3 wires.
One for Power (Positive), one for Ground, (Negative), and a Sensor wire; so the laptop (BIOS) can speed the fan up when needed, or slow it down.

Positive ( + ) power pin, can be had from the Harddrive's interface it plugs into, on the laptop.
So can a Ground pin.
Not a sensor pin for speeding up, or slowing down a fan.

The internal cooling fan of a laptop, only uses two wires.
Positive, and Negative. It is the circuit the fan is plugged into, that can determine if the fan needs to be speeded up, or slowed down.

Point is, there isn't even a sensor pin FOR the installed cooling fans, to bring a jumper wire over TO the new fan.
(Which I wouldn't recommend anyway)

The two hardware components that give off the most heat, is the Processor (CPU), and graphics chipset. (GPU)

The CPU (Processor) is usually adequately cooled in a laptop.
The graphics chipset is usually, not.

Therefore, adding more surface area, to the Cooling Tube's small metal plate; is a method to help keep the laptop cooler.

Let's use an HP Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's, Cooling Tube for an example,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Pavilion-DV6449us-DV6000-Heatsink-and-Fan-431448-001-FOX3IAT8TATPC93A-/281108195757?pt=US_CPU_Fans_Heatsinks&hash=item41735aa9ad

This is actually the entire cooling system.
Fan Assembly, finned Heatsink, and copper Cooling Tube.

The large metal plate all the way to the Left, that has the X-shaped mounting 'arms' on it, sits on the Processor.

Come up towards the Right, along the Cooling Tube, and the odd shaped metal plate sits on the graphics chipset.
(To the immediate left of the black Fan Assembly)

See how small that surface area is, that sits on the GPU? (Graphics chipset)
The surface area is increased by adding a small piece of copper sheeting. (APPROXIMATELY, 1-1/4th inches by 1-1/4 inches)
Thermal Paste is put on the graphics chipset. Then small piece of copper sheet, then Thermal Paste; then Cooling Tube.

If you have twin fans, then you should have twin Cooling Tubes.
I have seen four Cooling Tubes.
Two for one fan, and two for the other fan. Two go to the Processor, and two go to the graphics chipset.

At any rate I am just rambling until I know what laptop we are talking about.
Could be a reference to a Desktop PC for all I know........

My computer hangs/stop responding expectedly and when i check the processor , it very hot , !!! help me plz ...!!!


Hi,

You can try to disasseble your desktop and check if the processor fan is not working properly. Try to clean accumulated dust and replace it if needed. Also add more fans to decrease temperature inside the system. Do not operate your desktop as possible, it may do further damage to other components of the system.

Hope this helps.

How to build a or assemble a computer and troubleshoot?


Building a computer will require: a motherboard, a processor, memory, a video card or motherboard with onboard video, a sound card or motherboard with onboard sound, at least one hard drive, a CD or DVD drive, a case for the computer components, a power supply, fans to cool the computer, an operating system, a monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, 2-3 hours to assemble the computer.
You must ensure that all of the components are compatible with one another. After receiving the parts, lay everything out on a large, clean surface. Make sure you are grounded by touching a metal surface; this will prevent the transfer of static electricity to your computer components.
Typically, the steps to install the components are as follows: 1. mount the power supply in the case, 2. mount the motherboard 3. lock the processor in the socket on the motherboard 4. insert the memory sticks into the slots on the motherboard 5. mount the processor fan on the processor 6. insert the video card into the applicable slot on the motherboard 7. insert the hard drive into a hard drive bay in the case, 8. insert the CD drive into a CD drive bay, 9. mount any fans you have to the fan cutouts on the case 10. connect all applicable data cables to the CD and hard drives 11. connect all applicable power cables to the motherboard, video card, processor, hard drive, CD drive, and any other components. 12. connect the front panel USB, power, lights, and reset connectors to the motherboard 13. close the case 14. connect the power, monitor, speakers, keyboard, and mouse to the computer
Because this process is rather involved, I recommend following a guide such as this one: http://www.maximumpc.com/article/how-tos/how-_build_silent_gaming_pc
It details the process, includes pictures, and even provides a list of compatible parts.

Hi. I have a HP laptop for about 3 months and now it gives me the message " a cooling factor is not working properly" , and it shuts down 15 minutes later. what should I do? Should I go to the...


The laptop should be covered since it is only three months old. That's the good news. The less than good news, is that you may have to wait a while before you get your computer back.

I don't have the laptop in front of me, so naturally I can't diagnose the problem directly.
I would hazard an intelligent guess that the Cooling Fan inside the laptop has failed.

Components inside a computer are normally cooled by air. (High tech gamer computers may use a different type of cooling system. They may use water, or a refrigerant of some sort. { Dry Ice, Nitrogen, Freon, etc)

Two main computer components generate the most heat.
The Processor, and the graphics chipset. (Video chip, Same/same)

The Processor is the 'Brain' of the computer. It's designed to operate up to a maximum temperature, (Thermal Limit), and no higher, or damage to the Processor will result.

There is a Fail Safe feature built-in to turn the Processor off, if it becomes too hot.
(BIOS turns the Processor off)

With no cooling fan operating the Processor will overheat.

You didn't indicate what model name, and model number your HP laptop is.
This is to just show you what an average cooling fan looks like in an HP laptop,
(HP DV6 series ), and what is entailed in order to access it,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-hp-pavilion-dv6-laptop/

Scrolling down to Step 24, and 25 shows the top view of the cooling fan.
Step 29 shows the bottom view.

Would appreciate hearing the outcome, please reply in a Comment.

On startup my fan on my dx2200 run very loudly


Which of the fan? Is it Power fan or processor cooling fan?
POWER FAN: check if the casing of the power pack is touching the fan or wire if not then prepare to change power pack or the fan.

Processor Cooling Fan: If there is no wire in the system touching the fan then know that the ball bearings are getting bad. Then plan for replacement.

Hi, my compaq CQ50-115NR used to make great fan noise...now, nothing and it gets hotter and hotter...what should I do?


Have the fan replaced.

The 'great fan noise' you heard was the fan's bearings.
The looser the fan bearings became, the more the fan tilted, allowing the center hub of the fan to rub against the bearing base.

A laptop has a poor cooling system. All of the hardware components, are crammed into one tiny box. Air is the only cooling medium to keep these components cool.

The Processor, and the graphics chip are the two components that give off the most heat.
When a Processor becomes too hot, it turns off.
(BIOS turns it off)
This is a Fail Safe feature built-in, to keep the processor from burning up.

I would advise not using the laptop until this has been corrected.
Is the laptop still under warranty?

THE FANS WORK BUT NOTHING SHOWS ON THE MONITOR AND ITS QUIETER THAN USUAL


1.Cooling fans work?
2.No Signal shown on monitor?
3.Harddrive doesn't make any noise? (To explain. Harddrive is inactive. Not spinning, and the arms aren't moving back, and forth across the platters)

Suggest it's a bad power supply. A common occurrence.

Why?
1.Owner fails to keep the inside of the computer clean, and the power supply.

Dust/Dirt/Spider Webs/Lint, you name it, builds up inside. This foreign material clogs up cooling components. Specifically the Processor fan, and Heatsink, plus the power supply fan, and heatsink's inside the power supply.

Result?
Processor heats up. Takes more power to run, until eventually it turns off. (Processor's have a thermal limit. Once this thermal limit is exceeded, BIOS turns the processor off)

Power supply heats up. Fan blades and center hub collects Dust/Dirt, as well as heatsink's inside the power supply. Cooling capacity drops tremendously.

Heat = Wasted Energy. The power supply puts out more, and more power to keep up. Eventually components inside the power supply fail. They burn up. (More on this to follow)

2.Cheap power supply. Cheap construction, and cheap materials used. Pre-built computer manufacturers generally use cheaply made power supply's. Saves them money.

A.Gauge of wiring used inside is too small.
B.Electrolytic Capacitors used are of an inferior design, and of cheap quality.
C.Circuit design is below par.
D.Other components used are of low quality.

So how does a bad power supply still light-lights, and spin fans?

Bad power rail.
Personal computer power supply's put out three main voltages.
A.12 Volts
B.5 Volts
C.3.3 Volts

Electrolytic Capacitors used in a power supply are Filters. They filter the incoming AC electricity, and the rectified DC. When one or more capacitors fail, or are failing, a bad power rail results.

1.ALL the lights uses less than 1 Watt.
2.EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

A typical Processor uses 55 to 125 Watts. Depends on which processor it is.

So you see, you can have enough power to light those lights, spin fans, and even spin the harddrive motor, but not enough to turn the processor on. (Or if it does turn on, not enough to keep it running)

You can easily prove it's the power supply at fault, if you have a known, good, power supply to use for a test.
Another 300 Watt unit that has the same power cables. (Should be stated as has at LEAST the same power cables. It can have more power cables, and these just won't be used)

No processor running you get no signal to the monitor. Computer isn't working to give a signal to the monitor.

Computer is quieter than normal, because you don't hear any harddrive noise. No processor running to access the Operating System on the harddrive. (Or programs and applications)

(Windows XP is an example of an Operating System. O/S)

Just for information, this link gives details of the components inside a harddrive. Gives you more info about the Arms, and Platters I referred to above.
Just thought I would include it. It is not advertising for this website, but is included for reference.

Dell Optiplex GX270 sounds like a jet taking off. What is wrong and what do I need to do to fix it?


Hi,
You have to find out where the noise is coming from. It could be;
1) a fan on your motherboard if it has one
2) the fan on your heatsink that keeps your cpu cool
3) the fan on your power supply unit
4) a cd or dvd rom drive
5) one of your hard drives
6) one or more of your case fans.
7) a fan on your video card if you have one.

You don't want to open your power supply, so if this is the cause of the noise you can replace the whole PSU. Other than that, any other component listed above can be replaced by going to newegg.com for parts.

Good luck,
Hank

Best operating system for new build?


Either Windows XP or Vista 64 bit edition, depending on what you like...I won't get into the xp vs. vista battle here lol. The 64 bit operating systems can see all of your memory, with the 32 bit OS's, you're limited to around 3 or so gigs. Do note, that there may be some incompatibilities with a 64 bit operating system, though most programs should run fine.
