The fans that are plugged into the motherboard are usually powered by the motherboard. To turn them off, simply unplug them as there is always a power flow going through the motherboard and even more to power the fans when the system is running. I would recommend keeping the fan in if possible to help with cooling your PowerEdge 1400 server, but if it must be removed, simply power your server down, and unplug the fan. Make sure your server is powered off before doing this, as you don't want to short anything out or cause a spark.

Displays momentarily and asks for CPU fan connection. I have changed 4 fans and still get the same error message and the display goes off.


You're sure you have the cpu fan connected to the correct socket? sounds like it's not connected, or is connected to a different socket. Does the fan turn?

4805 fan not working, the one on the inside. Everything else works.


the new fan that you installed is a good one,but it wont turn on, because there is no electric current into the fan
something is wrong with the motherboard, the motherboard control the electric current (to the fan)
the motherboard is needed to be checked and repaired

I am not hearing the fans on this computer and i notice it heats up very quickly


With the computer turned off unseat and reseat the fan connectors back to the motherboard. If the fans are still not turning on then try some other new fans. If new ones won't turn on then you know for sure at that point the motherboard is going bad because its not putting out a high enough voltage to turn the fans on.

Remote control will not turn on fan


Do you have the correct type of fan connected to the motherboard ?
For fan control to work you must be using the type of fan that has at least three wires in the connector plug (if it has four wires that is ok too) but if it only has two wires then it will not works since the third wire is the control wire that the motherboard uses to detect fan speed and so on...
Fans that connect through a connector on the power supply will not work either must be conected to motherboard plug on the motherboard itself with at least three wires

hope this info helps

NOTE: if you are sure you are using the correct type of fan then check BIOS power/hardware monitor settings to see if the fan is connected to the correct plug on the motherboard and to verify it is being detected properly and fan speed setting is correct.

I have problem with my fan when turn on my computer say fan failure press f1 to continued press f2 setup


You should first check to make sure the fan is working. Just open it up and turn it on and see if the fan is functioning properly. If not then you can just order a replacement fan from Dell.

Gateway gt4010, wont power on.


The fan turning off will be the cause of the PC shutting down.
This could be caused by a faulty fan or bad connection to motherboard.
1. try reseating the fans power plug on the motherboard
2. if that doesn't help, try replacing with new fan.
3. if that doesn't work then most likely motherboard problem

Thise is Fred. A few days ago i assembled a Pentium 4


Some fans are controlled by temperature-sensitive sensors.
So, if the motherboard is "cool enough", the speed of the fan will be reduced to "zero".

Sometimes, a motherboard can enter "standby" mode.
This mode consumes only a small amount of power;
and the fan will be stopped, because the cooling it provides is not needed.

My fans wont power up


your system shutsdown to save your hardware from damage due to hight temperature because the fan is not working. Make sure you connected everything right on your motherboard. to test if the fan is ok try putting it in another entrance on your motherboard, you can find at least two or three place to connect a fan on your board, if all fails check with a friends motherboard, if that fails replace your fans.
