Question about ASUS A8N-E Motherboard

CPU fan fail or speed too low warning message.

I recently open up my Dell Inspiron 531 computer to clean out all the dust. I unscrewed the processor to clean it and I screwed it back on correctly. And of course I blow any fan and inside the power supply aswell. Now before I did this, I had no error messages before. After I do the cleaning, I put everything back the way it should be and turn the computer back on and now I have a warning saying CPU fan fail or speed too slow. What should I do about this problem?

For sure you have done something wrong in fixing up, re-check that you havent unplugged the fan aur havent damged the wires aur there jacks.
one possibilty maybe that you have cleaned the material present between fan and processor which is responsible for heat conduction.

Dell inspiron 2020 all in one fan problems


I have found that if the room temperature near the computer is too high creates a problem. If the processor is being used at a high rate that will influence the temp sensors and cause the fan to run at the "speed" you hear. (It is on all the time, just different speeds). Other heat producers may not have clean fans or fins, for example display adaptor or power supply. or but unlikely, the
cpu fan interface is not well seated or no heat transfer grease. You didn't change the processor did you?

Why does My Dell Inspiron 531 computer keep turning off


There are several possible causes for this. Laptops are notorious for dust buildup and overheat issues. Take compressed air and blast out the vent areas. If you can push enough air through the vent leading to the CPU cooling fan, that may clear out dust clogging the fan, preventing proper CPU cooling.

The next possible issue is a threat.

Boot into safe mode - keep repeatidly pressing F8 key as soon as you power on - until a menu comes up. Using keyboard up/down arrow, select "Safe Mode" (with networking if available).

Next, install Malwarebytes (free version) and perform a full scan. Also scan using your current antivirus.

hope this helps,

SYSTEM TRIES TO COME ON BUT ONLY MAKES IT TO THE CONFIGURING SCREEN THEN IT SHUTS ITSELF BACK DOWN, THIS IS CONTINUOUS. I have a Dell Inspiron 531. Please advise. Thank you, Candace


It sounds like it could be a problem with overheating, which is causing the machine to turn itself off. Try opening the side cover, and carefully cleaning the motherboard and especially the CPU fan - which is the large fan probably on top of a silver box with loads of fins on it. Carefully remove the dust, and see if this clears up the problem. It may be worth removing and refitting the memory whilst the computer is open, to reduce the problems of bad connections between the cards.

If it doesn't fix it, then reply here with any error messages that pop up on the screen.

When turn on my computer after a seconds the system is shutting down.. i don't know what to do, is there a problem with the processor?


A overheating CPU will shutdown and won't start up again until the CPU has cooled down.
The overheating problem (ie. thermal shutdown) is most likely caused by a faulty CPU fan or dust clogging the CPU fan and heatsink.
Check the BIOS CPU fan speed could be set too low, check the fan speed/temperature setting.
If this problem is not fixed, then the CPU will eventually fail.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not then replace the faulty fan.
If the fan and heatsink are cligged with dust, loosen and remove the dust and use a can of compress air to blow away the dust.

Dell Inspiron 531 keeps shutting itself off. After a few moments, tries to restart. and shuts down, almost like it's hibernating, or overheating. New PSU and re-thermal'd the processor/fan


Try removing every single thing in the box you are comfortable with removing - reinstalling.
Take each piece starting with one stick of ram - clean the connectors -[ shiny copper or gold looking area] with a clean pencil eraser.
Install each one - one at a time.
First one stick of ram.
Then another - then a removed card - one at a time.
If this problem continues after reinstalling only the first stick of ram - you may have to re-seat the processor - jell- fan. It takes some doing sometimes to hunt this down - so do not eliminate the power supply either - think about removing it and trying another if all of the above fails to fix the problem.
One last thing - if you have Windows 7 and didn't buy it retail - Windows 7 is shutting down because it is not a legit copy.
Best of it

Dell Demension runs great but loud fan noise that takes a long time to shut down. What going wrong?


I had a similar problem with excessive fan noise on my Dell Dimension 5150. The solution was to replace the worn heat sync compound that was between the cpu and the heat sync itself. (£0.99 ebay)

Inspiron 531 freezes


You have to do some maintenance cleaning and check up. Both hardware and software. As this age usually two years.One common failure is the harddrive. You should get some backup procedure. As for software you may do the following. 1. Registry cleaning (Ccleaner is good but be careful also) 2. Application cleaning, uninstalling those program not needed in the system. 3. Log and history cleaning. 4. Defrag is good. 5. And virus scanning it also one of the major cause of system freezes. 6. And unloading some files (back it up then unload) As for hardware. You may do some dusting or reseating. Usually the CPU fans and system fans and its airways.
