Hello the manual can be downloaded here:

By selecting your windows system.
Open the manual folder, and click global for download.
Adobe reader, is needed to read the content.

I think you have a bad power supply, try to renew that.

Make sure the 4 pin +12 volts atx connector is properly connected.

Look also for bad caps on the mainboard:

If they look like this, the mainboard is dead.
It does not pay, to let them be changed.

Good luck

When the computer boots up. It makes almost a grinding noise and I get an error msg, saying the fan is failing. But it does boot up by hitting f2 which is one of the options after the error msg. The other...


The only resolution other than replacing the fan by sending the PC to repair, is to clean the fan.

Power Off the desktop
Open the side pannel using the thumb screw or the philips screwdriver
You will see two fans in the unit, one on the processor heat sink (CPU Fan) and other on the back (System Fan)
Try to clean the fan by blowing air using a hair dryer or a vacum cleaner (in light mode)
Put back the side pannel
Power on the PC to check for error message
If it's still there, you need to replace the fan if it wont allow you to pass through using F2

I just installed a fan for my aspire x3200 and not it won't boot up. i found my Acer Recovery Disk but it's 1 of 2 . where can i go to download the boot up disk

Pfft. Before breaking things down to the minimum (and working up slowly to complete, to find the component stopping boot from happening;) just make sure the fan plugs and your videocards' seating in the PCIx slots are perfect. It won't boot if the BIOS is set not to boot when the CPU fan hasn't spun up. That's classic 4-pin-fan raison d'etre. Failing that, give the proper error or stopping point in the boot process and nevermind the recovery disks.

I have to hit the f1 key to continue the bootup process. Then I get a defective fan error message, but the fan is running, becasue I can hear it.

there may be more than one fan-- there also is a setting in the BIOS to disable the fan warning if you are SURE that the fan it is monitoring is working correctly.

Re: t40 ibm fan error

Are you talking about the original fan being good or the replacement? If it's the original, then your problem may lie with the processor or mainboard. Try the download first, you will need to access another computer to make a bootable disc for the download to clear it. I believe with IBM you can make a bootable floppy or CD. If you have a floppy for your machine, some don't. Once you've made the disc or floppy, you will need to enter the boot menu, and boot from the proper drive. I'm out for the night, but I'll be back in the morning. Let me know.

Fan error during boot-up

Power supply, that can be the cause. Did you try disconnecting few devices to check if the CPU fan has enough power to turn itself on. Usually motherboard will have two connectors for the CPU fan, you may try connecting it directly to the power supply. Also Check through the BIOS and see if there is a setting to disable the CPU Fan monitor (Hardware Monitor??) It should be where the temps and voltages are. The BIOS in most computers has an option to monitor a CPU fan. If none exists, then the option needs to be disabled. I am assuming the error is occuring during the BIOS stage of bootup. If the error occurs in Windows, it may be that some software has been installed to monitor a fan that doesn't exist. Sometimes monitoring software comes on the motherboard CD and someone may install it, thinking it is a driver. It is not necessary. Good luck!
