Question about ASUS A8N-E Motherboard

Asus A8N-E failing? Chip fan dead?

Hey my computer has been "broken" for a few weeks now and I'm starting to think it's the motherboard. For a couple weeks I would get an error message before I started up my computer saying they're might be a problem with a Chip fan...I didn't really know which fan it was implying and didn't think much of it, because when/if I pressed f1 and exited that troubleshooter, it would just boot up like always/normal. After a while my computer had trouble starting up and would only start up every once in a while after so many tries. Now when I try to turn it on, you hear the typical sound of a mini turbine engine starting up, and when it's about to peak and start up the mobo or the whole system, you hear a "bzz" and it doesn't start it up....all the fans spin, all the LED lights are on....the whole thing gets power...the psu is good (and brand new because I thought that was the problem)..but the little chip fan on the mobo doesn't my mobo broken?

No video after replacing chip fan

Try a different video-card -- a "no-spin" fan and "no-video" implies a dead video-card (or at least a video-card that is not "seated' properly).

Check that the PC-speaker leads are connected to the motherboard, so that you could hear any "beep" codes. There should be one "beep" to indicate 'OK', or multiple "beeps" (bad RAM, no video-card detected).

I have a burnt out fan chip and was told that I need to replace my mother board - it is an asus a8n-e where can I buy one

There is a problem with the Southbridge chipset. The nForce4 chipset over heats.
Asus has not made a better cooler for the nForce4 Southbridge chipset.
(It does not cool the chipset as it should).
You will have the same trouble with a new A8N-E MB.
Sooner or later if you do not change the chipset cooler with a stronger fan/heatsink assembly like any of the ones listed on the next link, the chipset will burn up.
Here is the link to Asus for a replacement chipset fan;

Try this link for the board;

Here is the Google search link for the Asus A8N-E board;

Than click the link below for other compatible Socket 939 motherboards with PCI-E x16;

Thank you for trying FixYa

Cpu fan noisy /chip fan fail

You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.

Hope that fixed ya...

Audio outputs doesn't working

It sounds like a motherboard sound chip failure, although run a diagnostics on the sound, click Start>run, then type 'dxdiag', hit 'Enter' and run sound driver test. If it has failed, you can purchase a cheap PCI slot souncard and dissable your onboard sound, or a complete new motherboard.
