When i turn on my pc all seems well for about 5 secs then the heatsync fan and the tower fan stop moving and at that point my video card fan starts spinning 5 times faster what would cause this


Following are the reasons for overheating, just take care of these things::


1. Stop Overclocking your CPU
2. Make sure your Heat Sink is placed properly above the processor
3. Clean the Processor fan, Heat Sink and other peripherals
4. Use High Speed fans
5. Use CPU Heat Sink Paste in the processor
6. Make sure your dint restrict the speed of CPU fan.
7. Use Additional Cooling Units


If such problems occurs due to internal errors then i would suggest to perform a full computer scan with pc optimization tool like PCFresher for an instant fix.

Test a power supply


if your PSU starts (fan is spinning) you can test it with voltmeter. to check voltages for motherboard do next:
1. take PSU out of case
2. put power cable in
3. with some wire connect green and any black on MB connector on PSU (20/24 pins)
4. fan should start spinning
5. use voltmeter to check voltages

this is just basic. real PSU test is when you have device that will burden PSU while testing...

I have an issue with a computer. one day it stopped turning on all of a sudden. checked PSU and its not getting any power. (usually fan will turn a bit then stop), now decided a faulty PSU is the problem...


Good day.
You are down with your motherboard as the main suspect of the problem. To isolate it, remove all the devices (hard disk, optical drive, video card, memory) that is connected to your board. Turn-on your PC. If your PSU is still acting abnormal then your motherboard is defected and you need to buy a new one, else, you can replaced one at a time the devices you have removed earlier.
Feel free to post again here at Fixya if you still have a problem.
Good luck.

I plug it up and green power light blinks off and on


If the main power light only comes on very briefly then there is a strong chance the power supply is or has failed..

If the fan on the power supply only spins very briefly after it has been switched off for a couple of minutes then that too is an indication of a bad power supply.

Either way that can be easily checked at most computer stores in a matter of seconds. new PSU's are also relatively cheap and obtainable.

If it is the PSU purchase one with a higher rating than your current one.

EG if yours is a 350 watt PSU then go for a 400 watt or higher.

Hope this gives you the information you need

sounds to me like a failing psu, you may need to test it with a psu tester if you have one available, if not any local pc repair shop should have one

Hp530 Ultra Slim starts and stop after 3-20sec


I have had this once before, and then it was one of the hard disk cables which was interfering with the fans inside the case. In my PC it was the PSU fan which was being halted. Try moving the cables around inside the case and ensure none of the corners where they are folded are protruding into any of the fans.
