Well, first you should check wether the fan actually starts when you turn on the pc. If it doesnt your cpu will be overheated in no-time, causing the pc to reboot. That fan then probably has the wrong voltage, or requires to much power, which your power supply may not be able to provide.

If it works, you should try to find out how powerful this fan is, meaning how much air it moves per minute. If this fan is less powerful than the previous one, your cpu will be overheated.

If neither of these solutions apply, I guess you should contact your vendor and request replacement. It may be just the fan that's broken.

    Oh well I'm sorry for the misunderstanding then.

    I'm just new here myself, so I don't have that much experience yet.

    Which fan is this about then?

If you have an over heating issue then wasting ur time loading any operating is just that a waste. No u can not load an OS from an ipod. u have to load it from an external CDROM. Some of the newer mini's will boot from a flash drive but then you have to make the flash drive a "bootable device" not something a novice user wants to mess with. If u want to tare it down this far you can check the heatsink is firmly on the cpu. Make sure the exhaust fan is even working too. I wouldnt put alot of time or money in that evo with the prices of laptops being pretty reachable right now.

Dell Optiplex GX270 will not boot from disk


Does it show

boot from cdrom?
did you answer (Y)
then hit spacebar?
have the bios set to boot from cdrom/first boot device cd-rom?
If any of these settings are not applyed you will not restore xp on your computer

go into bios and conferm settings

first boot device if set as floppy or hard drive change to cdrom
on some systems you can hit the (f12) key to bring up a boot window and select the cdrom and boot from there then it will ask the normal questions

Boot up


Hi there.
Try clearing the cmos
d015d7b.jpg<<<<< you will see in the picture a plastic jumper (in this case coloured green), move it to the other position and hit the on/off button, then put it back in its original position and power up the machine again. Hopefully the issue will have been sorted. If there is no jumper remove the battery for an hour and make sure the power cord is removed from the back before you clear the cmos

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Laptop won't boot from external CD drive yet internal one is unresponsive


if you want to boot a cd e.g windows xp os disk then you have to go to the bios by pressing del or f2 or f8 ot f10 depending on the motherboard you use. try to find boot option -> boot priority or first boot device.if you find boot priority then select cdrom as first priority . if you find first boot option then also select cd rom. sometime if your disk is not bootable then it won't boot.

Will it boot from other CD's? If it is not booting from any CD, it's probably an issue of boot priority settings. If when booting, it says something like "press F8 for BBS", press F8. If it just shows a logo, try hitting ESC or TAB, and it should show a more details output that may include the "press .. for BBS". If there is no BBS message, then ... Enter the BIOS setup (pressing DEL, or the indicated keys) Look for a menu that says "Boot" or similar. There should be an item that indicates "Boot Devices" or "Boot Priority". It may show your hard drive, your CD-ROM, and a Floppy (whether or not one is installed). Make sure the CD-ROM is listed above the Hard Drive; this will cause it to check the CD-ROM as a possibility for booting, before checking the hard drive. It also adds a second or two to boot time, so it may not be that way by default. The BBS menu, if there is one, lets you choose the boot device on a per-startup basis, but it will go back to the BIOS settings the next time you reboot. Hence, you can leave it defaulted to the hard drive, and use the BBS menu when you know you want to boot from the CD. The only reason a BIOS update would fix this, is if there was a bug preventing this from working, which is unlikely but is a remote (0.2%) possibility.
