Well theres always at least 2 plugins for a fan ussualy its located near the cpu and the other one near where the power supply plugs in theyre both white with 3 prongs and the the lead when inserted clicks in and it only fits in those 2 spots .prosses of elimination.and if u look with a magnafying glass and a flsh light it should be written on the board beside it fan or cpu fan both are good to go. good luck.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

I have a compaq s5000nx that keeps shutting down and restaring after 20 min have not done any thing to it


Hello,

Open the case and blow any dust out of the heatsink (under the cpu fan). Overheating is the main cause of sudden shutdowns. You may also want to apply fresh thermal paste between the cpu and heatsink. Please let me know if this helps or not.

I havemy s5000nx keeps shutting down and restarting after 20 minutes what could be the problem


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease might be getting to hot


another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit


hope this helps you

CPU FAN SPEED IN HP Compaq d530 Small Form Factor Desktop PC


The fan/heat sink on these models get plugged with dust very easily, use an air compressor or can of air to blow the dust out of the heat sink and fan. In extreme cases the thermal paste gets dried out and needs to be re-applied to properly cool the processor.

Cd burner


it could be conflicting with the harddrive. If the hardrive is set to master then set the cd drive back to slave and try again.
