Question about ViewSonic VX910 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

CPU Fan Speed Too Low or Fails***

I will give you BIG FAT COOKIE if you can solve these for me!!

As for CPU Fan Issue, Error message will sometimes show up- "Cpu Fan too low or fails" But I looked at CPU which is attached to Motherboard, it didn't stop spinning. Only My Case fan (Which is different Fan which is bottom of Power Supply it sometimes turn itself off then restart on its own and then spinning like normal?) (Or is that 2 different issues?? But anyway)

I may need your juicy brain (Thinking) about that,

As you see, I am hardcore gamer, and I recently had Custom Built computer, and I recently started buy pc games*** (Wow Peformed great-) (Tried Overlord but couldn't enjoy playing the game due to Monitor Problem (As I posted earlier*) (It seem refuse swap the resoution with the full screen back forth to desktop and shut itself down***) (But Overlord game act normal on other CRT monitor***)

I recently installed a new software where it will "Determines" the Speeds and tells you temperature, and voltage and everything.

Okay, As you see, I am kind of NEW to whole thing, so I don't really understand a lot about how Numbers and how they are supposed to be set as" suppose you want to gaming high quality games like overlord, or oblivion or whatever.)

As I thought, that everything was done in Auto (Whatever Computer decides is best") because I read the manual book (Yay for reading -_-)

Cool n Quiet software is for- enables you view system real time cpu frequency and voltage. (But I cannot view this software yet since my Motherboard Bio were disabled for this feature, so I would have to enable this feature.

Right now I only can access other software "Smart utility monitors the fan speed, cpu temperature, and system voltages and alerts any detected problems. So What I see is here list of numbers, But I don't know whats normal and what's not.


1.36V Vcore
3.31 V
5.03 V
Cpu 38 o C
MB 37 o C
CPU 1288 rpm
CHASSIS 1222 rpm

these displays As I type to you, Only Firefox is open, this is what display here. I am pretty sure they changes when Gaming. Didn't try (Due to Monitor issue*)

And Oh yeah, I am wondering if I am supposed to have an Heatsink for Under the CPU fan on the motherboard? (Manual book shows that you can install that part but I didn't have heatsink) (Is it neccessary? Or not to worry?)

Hopefully the LCD Monitor can be fixed (Please check what I post earlier to see that issue.) So that I can enjoy gaming!! Without blow up my Computer ><

Thank you!

    Edit: I will list my System-What Parts I bought,

    List What Parts I bought and installed***

    Case: Dynex DX-500CC ATX Mid Tower Comes with 500 Watt Power Supply ATX12V Tri-Color 500 Watt power supply And it also comes with a blue light color case fan- But I don't know the name of that fan, (The Case look like X mark on the left side of case see-through, it also had lock-up front door***)

    VideoCard: Only bought One, (Although My Motherboard supports TWO VideoCards)
    Nvidia Gefore 700 Gt/Gto Total memory 256.0mb Current Display mode: 1280 x1024 (32 bit) (60hz)

    Processor: 939 Socket Athlon 64fx/athlon 64 AMD 64x2 Dual Core Processor 4800 +

    DirectX Ver 9.0c

    Memory Ram: 2048 MB of Ram Type- for Corsair 184-pin of TWO x 1gb DDR400-Dimms

    (My Motherboard also says it support up to 4GB's) But only bought 2x1gb so far.

    OS uses: Win Xp Home edition w/ service package 3

    Motherboard: Asus a8n sli deluxe

    Western Digital Sata harddriver 300 GB

    1 DVD Drive liteon dvdrw

    Thats all there is installed* inside*

    So here, I am asking you if its' good enough, or need to install something different or what?

    I want to be able to enjoy this computer for long time and have fun gaming without worrying about Computer melt down or overheat with too much. As you know, This is my FIRST custom built Computer, I lack experience or understanding, Since I was stuck with Shitty Dell Dimension 4400 for about 7 years now, I was too stubborn to upgrade the video card for that Computer, I feel that Dell isn't worth to upgrade because I know the limit of that Computer. I was hoping that I can get good answer and solution, and more information. Thank you for ALL YOUR HELP I appreciation it very much!

There are three things you need to have a good gaming computer, fast graphics card, fast CPU, and lots of RAM. You didn't list your RAM so I can't help you, but 4GB is the most you can put in a computer. If you want to know everything about your computer then click on Start>Accesssories>system tools>system.

Ok you asked four or five questions so lets start with the CPU since if that breaks nothing else matters. First, the measurement for CPU is GigaHertz (GHz) not rpm. So it looks like you have a 1.98GHz CPU. That is not extremely fast (my Dell laptop for instance has a 2.4GHz) so you don't have to worry about your CPU overheating. Yes, all CPUs should have a heatsink and a fan. It helps with the cooling. A CPU also does a thing called "throttling" if it is getting too hot it slows itself down to cool off. So you are good with the CPU.

The other fan is the large fan you hear going on and off. That is connected to your power supply. The measurement for that is in wattage, it is custom made depending on the motherboard so that is a given that there is no problems with the power supply.
Both fans on the CPU and the Power Supply will turn off and on as they get hotter then stop when they are cool again.

Your graphics card is the most important for gaming. It should come with its on RAM and it's on fan. GE FORCE makes some good ones. Just google "gaming graphic cards" and you'll get an idea of what you need.

So that's it. Hope this helps you understand more. If you have any questions let me know. Don't forget to rate this solution with four stars before logging out.

Fan spins but it will not start up

Try reset the memory, CPU and check the CMOS battery voltage. ( 3 Volts )

Disconnect the main harness from the power supply before any of the above is completed.

Sometime, the CMOS battery on the Motherboard goes south and sometime just re-seating the memory and CPU will be enough to bring things back to life.
Hope this help you.

My dell moniter shows purple light at the power button instead of blue/orange.... and its not workin.. wat could be the problem

First of all you need to check you keyboard light it may be the issue with your CPU. So check you keyboard light and press Num lock key if it's getting on/off when you are pressing the key. If it's working or not. It must be blink when you press the num key. If it's constent or not getting on then check with you CPU first ....may be there is some issue with you CPU. Second you can remove the cable from CPU which is connecting to monitor to check ....when you remove it from cpu it will give you some message on the monitor screen that check you vga cable etc. If it give's such message then it will be for sure then you need to your CPU fixed up.
So please comment back with your troubleshooting details , hope it will help out you.

When I turn on the monitor, I get an error message: "Warning PC entering power saving mode", then it turns off.

Unplug your dekstop from the electricity then press and hold the power button on your desktop for couple minutes with out no power cable attached to it then let go of the power button then connect your desktop back to electrical outlet and press power button once that should give you display once it turns back on you can go into your power saving options and turn off power saver mode as its conflicting with your LCD sometimes this can occur if you have Norton antivirus installed
if after doing the power drain and still get same message then you can try using a different monitor if you have one for a test.
this issue is not with your monitor but with the PC has been stuck in sleep mode but the power drain should solve your problem.

It's giving me a disk error... A disk error occurred press alt,ctrl, and delete to restart and when i do that some message pops up.

There is a problem with your hard drive. Try taking the hard drive out, remove the battery, push the power button for approx. 10 seconds. Re-install the battery and re-install the hard drive. If the same message comes up again, try to boot the computer off a windows installation disc. If this all fails, you just may have lost your hard drive.
