Question about MSI S260 Barebone

1 Answer

Electronic component failure

The CPU fan on my S260 barebone (Medion MD95600) suddenly became very loud for about 5 minutes without interruption until the notebook shut down & some smoke came out of the cooling grid on the side, accompanied with the usual smelll of a burnt electronic components. After all the recommended reset actions ended with the notebook turning on (the start button lighting up) for 3-4 seconds & shutting down with the same smell & smoke, I decided to open it up to see if the CPU is fried. It turned out that the component "PC104" on the lower side of the board just underneath the CPU was fried & had zero resistance. It has "470 e 48" inscribed on it & has 2 ends, with one of them marked with "+". I could not identify the component but there are about 6 of the same kind on the board in total. It is rectangular (8x4 mm) and I unfortunately could not identify it. Would you happen to know what kind of a component it is & whether it can be found somewhere in the market?

Acre z5700 turns off


A really loud fan can be one of two things - neither is very good to have for very long. Most newer motherboards support multi-speed fan operation based on CPU temperature. This keeps fan noise at a minimum because the fan only has to run fast (and loud) if the CPU exceeds a specific threshold temperature. The loud noise could also be from a fan that is starting to fail and is binding, thus running slower than normal. Either of these conditions is indicative of a problem that kills PCs - heat. Open the case and carefully examine the heat sink fins and the fan on the CPU. If they are caked with dust (especially the fins), then the CPU will likely overheat and shut down. Get some canned air designed for cleaning electronic components and blow the dust from the fins and the fan. Restart your system a see if the fan runs slower and quieter now, Machines that are in dusty environments, around smokers, or placed on the floor are especially prone to dirt buildup. Periodic cleaning with the canned air is the way to keep your PC happy and healthy.

Your Acer Aspire, like any other desktop computer system, contains fans inside the case to help vent the heat generated by the internal components.
These fans generally operate quietly and reliably, working in the background to prevent your computer from overheating.
A fan that sounds excessively loud could indicate a problem such as overheating or loose internal components, or it could simply be a normally loud fan.
The key to differentiating between the two involves looking for additional clues from your computer.
Normal Operation
Due to computer configuration and build quality, the fans in some desktops sound louder than others.
Depending on what other brands of computers you've owned or have had experience with, the fan in the Acer may sound louder, when it's actually functioning perfectly.
The fan will run to keep the inside of the computer from overheating, so periodic runs are normal. If the fan runs for long periods or very often, you may have a deeper problem.

Fan Damage and Overheating
A fan can sound loud due to damage, such as broken blades or to a build-up of dirt that impedes normal operation.
This dirt, as well as normal wear and usage, can wear away the lubricant coating on the fan's internal shaft, causing the blades to make excessive noise as they turn. In many cases, a loud fan indicates that the computer is overheating, causing the fan to run more often than usual to try and cool the system.
Depending on the types of components and upgrades within your Acer computer, your current fan may be too small and weak to handle the heat output, and require upgrading to a larger, more powerful fan.


Troubleshooting Take note of when the fan turns on and how long it runs to determine any distinct patterns, whether if it occurs only during certain processes or programs.
Your computer's CPU generates a large amount of heat while in operation, so programs that require large amounts of CPU usage may trigger the fan more often.
Watch for additional signs of overheating, such as sudden shutdowns or computer crashes. Check inside the case for signs of other components touching the fan and causing vibration noise.

Solution

Do not overtax the CPU by opening numerous processor-intensive programs at once.
Check that all screws, cards and wires are securely fastened and away from the fan.
Keep your computer clean inside and out, to prevent the build-up of dirt on the fan blades or air vents and minimize the threat of overheating.
Apply a drop of oil to your fan's shaft to give it proper lubrication and smooth, quiet rotation of the blades.

Medion E7214 overheating


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

How do i tell if my acer computer has a bad power supply or motherboard, without buying a new power supply first?


The chicken and the egg comes to mind here!
Does the cpu fan come on? CPU 5 Volts is on
Can you open and close the DVD draw? 5 Volts is on
Does the Hard drive spin up? 12 Volts is on

Do the lights work on the keyboard? POST has completed.
Does the hard drive light work? CPU is on

Not sure what else to suggest but Power Supplies are not that expensive and fairly universal.

Hope that helped.

After im on it for about five minutes it makes a loud roaring noise and freezes. The noise doesnt stop until i turn it off.


Sounds like a bad hard drive or a bad CPU Fan. Try a different hard drive in the machine, and see if the machine boots up without making that sound and locking up. If it does then that means the original hard drive is bad.

If its not the hard drive then, replace the CPU fan and see if the sound goes away, if it does then you know the CPU Fan is bad.
