Question about Intel Foxconn: Foxconn CPU Cooler For P4 478 3.4GHz CPU Cooling Kit

7 Answers

Computer starts up, won't stay on.

Intel Quad Core Q6600 2.4GHZ
500 GB SATA II 3.0 GB 16 MB 7200RPM
Cooler Master Liquid Cooling Kit
ASUS P5N0E SLI NFORCE 650I SLI MB
Ultra Lifetime Series 600 Watt PS
xFX GEFORCE 8800GT 512MB
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit

This is a Cyberpower PC - yes I know tech support is non-existent.
Husband noticed the cooler fan didn't seem to be running all of the time. I don't believe the PC overheated, but the cooler fan wasn't running like it had before. Then noticed one of the LED lights on the fan blinks sporadically. Everything else was fine. Then the computer would shut down abruptly for no reason. CPU temp was 75 - 80. Would restart, windows would come up no problems. Same thing, 2 or 3 minutes later computer would shut down. Now when I try to start it up, I get the the windows recovery window, try to start it in safe mode, it hangs then eventually shuts down. Try last good configuration, shuts downs. Try to start normal, sometimes it gets to the little windows vista bar before the main window comes up, then shuts down.

When tech support got back to me he suggested that maybe they would send me a new cooling kit to install myself, didn't address any of the above. HELP!

I'm pretty comfortable making most repairs if necessary.

Thanks in advance.

    If the CPU is damaged, what are my options at that point? Can we retrieve any recent info from the pc?

    Going to try a new cooling system, then a power supply, we'll see how it works out. Thanks for everyone's advice.

Hi!
First you can connect hard drive as slave to another PC to retrieve any data you need, and then try a reinstall of operating system to this drive or make a complete format .

You said the leds on the fan is going off and on. Do the fans seem to slow when that happens??

You will need to check 2 things first off. Have the powersupply tested first, if that fine then try to test the motherboard.

Also try to unplug the fan that has the blinking problem, and see if it runs. (DONT LET IT RUN TO LONG WITHOUT THE FAN)

    Also it would not be the hard drive because of dust in it. If you have dust in the drive then the drive is trashed. The are air tight sealed. If for some reason the seal is broken then the drive is no good anymore.

    actually is that 80 celsius hope not because they run average 50 celsius = about 120 fahrenheit so 40 to 50c is safe.

If you have these symptoms on your PC:

System restarts on its own
Spontaneously goes into standby
Fan does not run, runs slowly, or runs noisily
Computer is heating up
Dim display
Any number of different things. Almost all PSU symptoms are also symptoms of another failure. For instance, a dying PSU can cause lockups or invalid page faults or disconnections from the Internet. Computer may not power on or may not complete PoST
Drives may not work intermittently
Multiple drives must be replaced repeatedly
Crackling audio
Computer running slowly
Drives intermittently not detected

Most probably power supply needs to be replaced.
Good Luck

    If the processor is bad, you can still retrieve the data from your hard drive by connecting it on a different computer so you can get the data from that drive...

He's right; 75-80 is way to hot for a CPU; it is overheating and therefore shutting down. The cooling kit *should* fix the problem provided the cpu hasn't been damaged from the excessive heat.

If the fan spins and you find there is power going to it, then likely the electronic drive circuit has failed. You can get replacement fans at stores like Fry's and other sources.

My gigabyte problem is. I put the blue liquid and the red light continues beeping even the liquid is full. I don't know what to do...


Here's a link to YouTube video of the Gigabyte 3D Galaxy II.
CLICK HERE
Most of the installation problem are on valve 1 and valve 2.
The red light condition is cause by air pocket and un-able to prime coolant.

Check the video instruction and purge the air pocket out of the lines.

It can be messy.

No audio output in my pc


Weird category. Intel Vantec CPU Coolers! If you didn't burn out the output bridge of that audiocard (it's easy to install another USB audio device if you did) just install drivers for your audio device, connect it to an amp, and have speakers connected to the amp!

Over heating and how to change admin password


Assuming yours is windows xp.

go to start->control panel->useraccounts->
select the admin account. side list see change the password.
you have to input the old one to change the new one.

and overheating is caused by damaged heat sink interface material or even damaged heat sink.

if interface material is damaged then replace it with the intel original heat sink interface material or cooler master material.
if heat sink is damaged then select the appropriate heat sink for your cpu.
my recommendation other that original cpu coolers is cooler master cpu coolers. very less cost but superb effective against processor overheating.
