Question about Abit VP6 Motherboard

VP6 board reporting incorrect CPU speed

This computter was working fine. I took the covers off to clean out the dust due to the temp getting high. Not near the danger point, but rising over time. Sinve then, the CMOS reports a checksum error about the processor speeds. I've rest the COMOS, Still, the same problem. This board has two 1000 Mz coppermine processors and 2 GB ram. I'l lost here. Reomved both processors, ran one at a time in another PC. They run fine. And help would be appreciated greatly.

Ok I am going to reach on this, I remember those boards, I think what you did was knock off a jumper on the board that sets the speed on those processors, but first check that you put the jumper on the cmos back the way it was, you may have cleared the cmos and not returned the jumper to the default position, take the battery out and check the jumper again, it should be one or the other. if you find a couple of pins that are bare on the board, the jumper that I mentioned at first may have fell off when you cleaned it.

Laptop cooling fan running at very high speed


Try loading and using a program called speedfan to control your fan speed if that is appropriate. This can also show you your CPU temperature (if you can figure it out). Core Temp can show you temperature of modern CPUs, amongst others.
Otherwise try cleaning you CPU of dust - search the internet as to how to this safely.

My dell inspiron 1525 keeps turning off and shutting down without me doing anything. why?


The computer has a cpu fan that can get dirty over time. It's job is to keep the cpu cool. When the cpu overheats, the computer senses it and shuts it down immediately, to prevent permanent damage to the cpu. You can clean it by blowing compressed air into it, and should do that every few months, as routine maintenance. This is the most common thing that shuts a laptop down, other problems involve repair, so try this first. I bough a $7 three inch fan at Walmart to help cool the laptop, and when I run it, I never have it shut down on me, but once in awhile it will without the fan, especially when I play dvds or videos, which really work th' heck out of the cpu. There are also commercial laptop cooling devices, but my little fan works just fine. Hope this helps.

G60-120US high temp problem


Laptop's temp should NEVER be higher than 60-70 C. Otherwise, windows or the CPU will shut it down (my laptop never goes over 75 C, even when running games for a short time)
A few tips:
1) Laptops are a really bad choice for games. They are not designed for that and they will overheat, some of them a lot, depending on the manufacturer.
2) Check if you BIOS has an option to turn "automatic fan control" OFF. This will keep the fan running at HIGH all the time, helping somewhat with the heat (most laptops do not have this control in the BIOS)
3) Clean up the fan. Turn the laptop off, disconenct the AC charger, remove the bottom cover and blow compressed air from a compressed air can. Be sure to remove all the dust and lint. Check that the fan moves easily. Replace the cover, plug the AC charger on and try again.
4) REMOVE SPEED FAN and install CPUID's Hardware Monitor from here:
http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php
It's much better and it gives you the temps of CPU, HD and video card and also speed of fan(s)

Getting over voltage error in bios , tried new cpu , reset bios . Checked power supply and all checks out fine with volt meter . Removed cd-rom , hdd , ram etc... that are not needed to boot with same...


Hi, this is'nt a solution but more of a suggestion, if your sure there isn't a hardware fault (voltage regulator?) then perhaps a bios flash may be needed. I've come across Asus mobo which have incorrectly reported temperatures and this has been fixed by flashing.

Best of luck

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)

Cpu fan runs at high speed all the time


the problem is that the mother board you are now using has a 4th wire that sences cpu temp this allow the heat sink fan to change speed to get this to work correctly you will need to replace the fan with a 4 wire style. what is happening is your not getting a temp siginal back to motherboard so the fan controller think it hot and send full power to fan alll the time the stock fan in hp systems is not very good any way .Get a good heat sink and fan to fit your new board ebay has them very cheap 5.00 to 20.00 this will all so increase you system temp and all get the proper cooling when you really need it.

Emachine t5230 cpu fan too fast


Hi orinzelenak,

This may seem like to simple, but try checking to see if the technician plugged the fan power supply into the correct pin for it. It sounds like the fan is plugged into a external plug directly from the power supply and not into the board, which would control the fan speed for you. Give a look, and maybe it's just that simple.

Good Luck

OVER HEATING


Hi,

Two possibilities:
  • the CPU is really overheating; and/or
  • the motherboard is falsely sensing high temp.
Corrective measure for an overheating CPU would be:
  • clean, re-lubricate or replace the fan;
  • clean or refit the heatsink. If it is overclocked, you may need a better heatsink.
If the CPU is not really heating up abd the motherboard is sensing erroneous temp readings, then the problem may be with:
  • BIOS version, try to flash and update the BIOS; and/or
  • check the temp probe underneath the CPU, it may need cleaning or slightly bending away from contact.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
