Pretty easy to reassemble. Maybe you question is which way the fan should go? Blow onto the CPU. Otherwise mabe help us out by giving us a model number? Thanks

Bad processor on my hp compaq


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


The "CPU" or central processing unit, otherwise known simply as "the processor," is the primary "brain" of the computer.

Processors are very finely engineered components that are not repairable.


But replacing a failed processor is an option for the owner of any model Compaq Presario desktop computer.


Just check with HP/Compaq for the correct size and speed of processor for your motherboard before purchasing a replacement.


Turn off the computer and disconnect all cables.

Remove the cover.

Lay the computer down flat.


If there is a plastic hood covering an exhaust fan, remove it by pressing in on the indicated release tabs.


Examine the processor assembly.

The processor is a square chip that is covered by a metal heat sink with fins.

A fan will often be mounted on top of the heat sink; unplug its connection to the motherboard.


Two clips usually secure the heat sink assembly to the top of the processor.

Gently press down and slightly away on the flat end of a clip to release it.


Avoid using a screwdriver to release a clip a slip could scratch the motherboard.

Release the clips and gently remove the assembly.


The heat sink should separate, leaving the processor behind in the chip holder.

Clean the bottom of the heat sink.


Use a paper towel and a dab of solvent cleaner to remove the old thermal paste.

Set the clean heat sink aside.


Lift up the lever to unlock the old processor and remove it from the pin mount.

Insert the new processor chip.


Align the pins on the processor to the "cut off corner" or dot on the pin mount.

The processor should drop into the pin holes easily.


If the processor won't drop in easily, check the pin alignment.

Once the processor is inserted correctly, pull down the lever to lock in the chip.


Apply thermal paste to the bottom of the heat sink.

Apply enough paste to cover the area of the small gray rectangle on top of the processor.


Apply the paste with a spreader made from a piece of flexible plastic.

Spread the paste evenly to a thickness of two sheets of paper.


Check the heat sink mounting alignment and lower the heat sink onto the top of the processor.

Reinstall the mounting clips.


Reattach the heat sink fan to the motherboard if necessary.

Plug in the computer and monitor and boot.


If the machine won't boot or it emits warning "beeps," unplug the power and monitor, and troubleshoot your work until the computer boots successfully.


Shut down again and replace the exhaust fan hood.

Close up the computer and reboot.

Pc suddenly powers off


that can be meaning if the processor is Not Supported with your motherboard,or the New Processor is not in good condition (can be Over Heat or damage).
Processor over heat or damage can be because the HEAT SINK (white or grey pasta at the top of processor) is not enaugh to cooling the processor or,the fan Proseccor is Dirty.

Hp sr2023wm core just shuts down. boot back and shuts down again! runs for hrs and then poof down again. possibly a power suppy? or an overheating processor?


If you are overclocking the processor it may be overheating.

ALSO check that the fans are running, including the one on the processor AND vents and heatsink fins are not clogged with dust.

Also consider if your pwer to the unit MIGHT be glitching or brownout due to heavy loads or bad receptacles or wiring. Make sure you are not running off a switched wall receptacle.

How do you remove the processor fan on a Compaq d330 ST PN DC581AV?


The Processor used in the HP Compaq D330 series of desktop computers is an intel Pentium 4.

The older style of Pentium 4 that uses a Socket 478, processor socket.

There were three different styles, of the HP Compaq D330 desktop computers made.

1) Desktop style:
Looks like a 'Pizza Box', and lays flat on the computer desk.

2) Microtower style:
A small tower style computer case

3) Slimtower style:
A small tower style case that is narrow in width, and shorter in height than the Microtower.

Reason I brought this up, is the fan design changes from style to style.

One style uses a fan which attaches to the Heatsink with screws.
(Heatsink is the finned metal unit under the fan, and sits directly on the Processor)

The other style has a plastic baffle that surrounds the fan. (Black in color if memory serves)

(The Baffle is a round plastic part that surrounds the fan blades. It directs the air flow. My term would be - fan shroud, as in used on a car)

Again going by memory, but I believe the baffle is a two part unit. There is a top half, and a bottom half.

Once the Heatsink/Fan Assembly is removed from the Processor socket, I think you can access two screw heads, coming up from the bottom.

Removing the two screws allows the Baffle to be separated, and allows access to the fan.

I believe there is also a tab on the top half of the Baffle, which a U shaped part from the bottom half of the Baffle, locks over the tab.
The U shaped part is a Lock.

(May be two tabs, and two U shaped locks. One on each side)

The U shaped part is gently pried out towards the outside, which allows the tab to slide free.

The two halves could also be glued together.

If your reference is to just clean the fan, after removing the Heatsink/Fan Assembly from the processor socket, I would use Q-tips, and a can of compressed air for computers, to clean it.

When using the can of compressed air I advise using short bursts.
The fan is only designed to spin so fast, and spinning it faster than it was designed for, can lead to premature failure of the fan's bearings.

If your reference is to replace the fan due to the fan's bearings have failed, my advice would be to replace the Heatsink/Fan as a unit.
There are much better models out there than this factory one.

Also accessing an original fan, will lead to buying the complete Fan/Baffle assembly.

1) You may be able to find it on a website like Ebay.
2) It will probably be a pull off of an old computer, and who knows what the lifespan will be?

NOTE*
BEFORE the Heatisnk/Fan Assembly is reinstalled;

The bottom of the Heatsink, and the top of the Processor case must be Thoroughly cleaned!
Also fresh new Thermal Paste must be applied, and correctly.

Thermal paste is around $2 to $4 at a local computer repair shop. It should come in a small tube, and enough for one application.
Should you need advice on how to properly apply thermal paste, let me know in a Comment.

If there is a white thermal pad being used, take it off, throw it away. These cannot be reused, and are junk to begin with.

I use an old plastic credit card to scrape the Heatsink bottom, and the top of the Processor case. Then I use Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol to help clean. (Rubbing alcohol)
Takes a few Q-tips.

Also Note*
BEFORE you reach inside your computer, have the computer unplugged from power, AND touch the metal frame of the open computer case.

Your body carries Static electricity, and Static will fry out computer hardware components.
Especially a Processor.
Touch the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.

If you get up, and walk away, when you return touch the metal frame again.


To Remove the Heatsink/Fan Assembly from the processor socket:

Looking at the processor socket you will note that there are four H shaped brackets.
These are plastic, and are formed into the base of the processor socket.
There is one in each corner.

The H shaped bracket has a slot hole in the middle of the bracket, towards the top.
The Heatsink/Fan Assembly has a tab that lines up with that slot hole.

Four tabs on the Heatsink/Fan Assembly corners, to match the four H shaped brackets.

The top of the H shaped bracket is - Gently pried towards the outside.
Very gently as it's plastic, and is brittle from the heat inside the computer all these years.

The H shaped bracket is just pried out far enough to clear, the tab of the Heatsink/Fan Assembly.

Once two tabs are released, the Heatsink/Fan Assembly can be tilted a little, and lifted up, and out.

This gives you a closer view of that Socket 478 bracket not installed,

Switched the power on but switched the 230 setting on the back to 115 by mistake then it blew dont know what ive caused but could you help


You probably blew the fuse in the power box where the plug ,and 115/230 switch is. unit must be dissambled, as well as the power box. there should be a fuse inside. If you can't do it take it to a repair shop. If you can ,make sure the new fuse fuse is the same amperage.

I am running Wxp on my Acer L100. After about 15


first things first pls check if the cpu fan is seated properly.
if not pls try to reseat the cpu fan, but before doing it put thermal paste on top of the cpu to haver a better contact on the cpu

if the fan is seated properly check the rpm of the fan on bios mode see if the rpm of the fan is fast enough.. if not then there's the problem.


this things only happens if the cooling system of your processor is malfunctioning. Your built in hardware monitor tends to turn of the computer to prevent further damage,,

Optiplex GX520 will not power up, system initially starts but after a few seconds it will shut off and attemt to power up again. Power supply was swapped out with a known working unit, still the system...


If after swapping the Power Supply the same problem persist, You have probably done all you can for this machine.

If the CPU Fan only spins for less then 5 seconds, wait 30 minutes and try again. If it spins the same amount of time, I am afraid that the Motherboard is most likely damaged.

IF it spins longer, there is a possibility that the CPU Grease between the CPU Fan and the Processor is Dried Out and You Processor is Overheating, Thus Shutting Down. It will need to be Cleaned and Replaced.

Be careful when removing and Replacing the Fan and Processor to NOT BEND the Processor Pins. It will only FIT ONE WAY.

Please update Post if you need Further Assistance.

Hope this Helps!

yes the problem as you discussed was the processor's overheating. first, you need to open up the side cover of your casing then switch on check vissually if the fan of the processor is spinning if not then you need to replace this. and if this is spinning upon power on, the power supply will be checked its voltage.
