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?

System can't bootup any cd or dvd


Do you have a Win98 install CD? If yes, you should be able to tell it to boot with CD-ROM support.....then use xp disk to load or install your OS.......I'm doing that right now on a different system. It will format your drive first....which takes a looooooooooooong time, however, it is worth it.

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!!

I cannot boot windows xp


Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!

Please connect jPw1 to 4 Pin 12v, this supplies power to CPU. Than enter Bios & find Boot settings. Set the cdrom as boot 1 & hd as boot 2. Check the jumper on the cdrom, as it is the only device on secondary IDE controller it should be set as a master.
It is better to install a fresh copy of windows with a new motherboard. Put your windows CD in the cdrom & the system will boot to it. And your on your way. You can install the drivers for the board after windows has been installed.
Enjoy!

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.

System is no boot neither with cd-rom nor hard disk


Hi, Based of your post/description and assuming not hardware problem, you may have to set up the priority boot device in the BIOS to CD. This will tell your mb to look for a boot medium from the cd first. This is normally in the Advance Setup/1st Boot Device. Of course soon as installed, you have to boot from the HD next time. Good luck and kind regards.

Install CD won't boot from cdrom drive


Maybe you need to check the boot process in the BIOS and make sure that it tries to start from the CD-ROM and not the hard drive. Usually, to get to the BIOS (I don't know how much of a tech that you are), on start up, hit the "del" key when you turn it on to get to it. Once in BIOS, hit the right arrow button to goto "Boot" and move down to "Boot Priority Device" and make sure that it goes to your CD-Rom first and then your hard drive. Let me know if you have any further questions.
