Question about E-Machines T2682 (000002965) PC Desktop
Wanted to swap in new video card for pci-express to get s-video, decided to clean dust out of computer cabinet, removed cpu not knowing what I was doing, did not know cpu chip could be removed from heat sink, tried to get chip back in grid of holes with heat sink still on, bent a couple of pins, thought it was in place, powered up, cpu was not in place so windows did not start and fan ran on high speed - took it to a technician, he replaced video card, cpu, and power supply, new cpu fan is very loud, bios reports that cpu is 22 degrees C but says cpu fan is 0 rpm, downloaded emachines t5230 bios and saved to disk to try to get new default values for bios but only 5 of 7 files of bios pack burn to CD, tried several times with no luck, modest intention and now a mess
This may seem like to simple, but try checking to see if the technician plugged the fan power supply into the correct pin for it. It sounds like the fan is plugged into a external plug directly from the power supply and not into the board, which would control the fan speed for you. Give a look, and maybe it's just that simple.
