One of the best sources I've found is You can check out their fans at:

I've bought from them for years and always had good results. If nothing else, you can find the type fan you need and then try and find it locally.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out!

Trying to find heatsink unit to be able to use the board

Hello here is the intel homepage:

Your mainboard is using the LGA 775 socket.

The heatsink fan looks like this:


The fan can still be bought in a computer store, online shop or a repair shop.

I will recommend to but a better fan, like the brand northq, because the standard fan is difficult to mount correctly on the mainboard.

Remember to add a bit of cooling paste on the cpu, before you mount the fan.

Good luck

..................My system config is : Intel C2D E7500 with 2.93 GHz CPU MOBO is Intel DG41RQ and 2gb DDR2 RAM OS is Windows XP - 32-bit (Service pack 3) .Problem is iwant to buy a new graphics card

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Removed processor from compaq presario sr1901wm replaced now monitor says no image what is wrong?

Hello Ron - The two most likely possibilities are that you either did not seat the CPU properly in it's socket (misaligned or bent pin) or that you did not fasten the heat sink properly, or remember to plug the heat sink power connection into the motherboard power connector.

With the heat produced by modern CPU's - without the proper cooling they would melt down almost instantly that's why both Intel and AMD have built in overheating protection which keeps them from even starting if not cooled correctly. When replacing the CPU it is always good practice to apply some new thermal paste after cleaning off the old.

I suggest you try starting the machine with the cover off and see if the heat sink fan is turning. If not that's at least part of your problem. If it is turning I would remove the CPU (careful of static!) and examine the bottom carefully to make sure nothing looks damaged. If it looks normal I would try reseating the CPU slowly and carefully.

In your question you did not say why you removed your CPU. Where you upgrading it to a new one? If so are you sure it is compatible with your motherboard?

Here is a link to HP's info page about your motherboard, including upgrades. Click Here.

It's also a good idea to clear the motherboards CMOS when removing and installing a CPU. The same page has a clear description on doing that.

Please follow the steps as I've presented them below:

1 - examine the info at the link I presented. 2 - make sure the fan is working - If so then - 3 - remove the CPU, examine and if it looks OK replace carefully (It should take hardly any pressure for a CPU to fit into it's socket.) Thermal paste would be nice but there's probably enough on the CPU (unless you've wiped it off) then you would need to get more paste before proceeding.

If that list doesn't help then it's time for a call to HP/Compaq tech support.

Good Luck,

i) the cpu fan- a) can be dirty..clean throughly..
b) look if any of the clips mounted into d main board is damaged..
c) try replacing d whole fan..
ii) the heat sink- may b dirty too..clean using a blower
iii) heat sink compund- ie a white paste rendered with a thin film between d cpu n d heat is seemed to b dried up..clean it using a cloth n re-apply it (available in chip-level spare market)
n.b.: b very careful b4 opening cpu fan n cpu from itz socket..
iv) open cmos utility or bios setup n in temperature settings ignore or disable cpu warning temperature..
v) c if all d electrolytic capacitors (mfd) situated in d north bridge of d main board r ok or not..
vi) download n install any cpu temperature control or cpu cooler software (dis softwares increases d fan speed as n when necessary)..
vii) if all d above fails try replacing d smps (atleast 450w)..

bt itz always better to seek intervention of ur computer supervisior or a pro..
n plz do vote n rate..

Hi i my computer suddenly started to shutdown and turn on again after a fev seconds.some times it goes in to windows but soon after has wrked for over a year and this was a home built...

Try these....
Overheating problem in your PROCESSOR!
Check the temp in your BiOS and the setting of your processor!
Check also the power supply and upgrade it to hifgher wattage!
Clean your processor HEAT SiNK, dust and dirt might have acumulated!
Check the HEAT sink position, if its flatly fitted on top of procie, and scrape the old silicon paste between ur proci and heat sink and put a NEW ONE!

Encountered this kind of prob.. the prob is in the PSU unit(Power Supply Unit)!

These might help you!

Upgrading the cpu and heat sink and fan

All the factory fitted CPUs are having such heat sinks as previously u were having.
Check on the backside there will be small plastic covers where screws fit these could be removed by screw driver but u can purchase that heat sink or can use previous heatsink as well if it is working.

Buzzer sound from motherboard spkr

Hi kuldeep11203, your Intel D101GGC board uses the Award bios.

Though the descriptions vary, I suggest you check your CPU heat-sink & fan assembly. Clean assembly from excessive dust build up. Remove CPU fan if possible & clean the heat-sink. Check the CPU fan, it may be turning too slowly & may need to be replaced. The average CPU fan runs between 2000 Rpm & 3000Rpm. Blow out your power supply with canned air. Disconnect & than re-connect the Main power connector (2x12) on the board. Item No# K, found on page 11 in your manual. Try these first. See if the buzz sound stops after a good cleaning.
If not replace the Heat-sink assemble with a new one. Check this link for a new assembly for LGA775 socket;

Good luck kuldeep11203!
