SOURCE: Acer Aspire desktop AST135 cooling fan runs fast & slow - noisey

If the computer case, or Processor fan is noisy, it is due to the bearings are bad. The bearings are worn, and this allows the fan hub beneath the fan blades, to rub.

(If you gently rock the fan by lifting up on one side, and there is a perceptible amount of play, the bearings are bad)
Suggest you replace it.

For a case fan, just measure the dimensions of the fan's outside case.
Measure the Height and Length, plus the Width, (Thickness).
Look at the connector on the end of the fan's cable.

Most fan sizes are shown in Millimeters. (mm) If you are not familiar with the metric system, you can go online, and use a free Millimeters to Inches Converter.

Examples:
1) 80mm = 3.14960 inches. Slightly over 3- 1/8th inches
2) 92mm = 3.62204 inches. Slightly under 3- 5/8ths inches
3) 120mm = 4.72440 inches. Slightly under 4- 3/4ths inches
4) 130mm = 5.11811 inches. Slightly under 5- 1/8th inches

See if it is a 2 pin connector, 3 pin connector, or 4 pin connector, on the end of the fan's cable.

(Fans operate on DC electricity. Just like the rest of the computer. DC is a Positive connection, and a Negative connection.

For a connector with 2 pins, that is all that is hooked up. Just power to the fan.

For a connector with 3 pins, the third pin is for the computer, to show what RPM's the fan is spinning at. {Revolutions per Minute}

For a connector with 4 pins, the fourth pin is a sensor connection.
The computer will speed up, or slow down the fan, according to what RPM is needed)

For a Processor fan the connection should be matched also.
When looking for a replacement Processor fan, it is the processor socket that the processor sits in, that you should look for.

You didn't state the full Model Number, such as AST135-US3104, or AST135-US3303, (It's on the back of the computer next to the Windows Product Key)
The two above models have an AMD Sempron processor.

They use a Socket 754.
(AMD Sempron 3100+, and AMD Sempron 3300+.
The AMD Sempron 3000+ that operates at 1.8Ghz, could be a Palermo Core that uses a Socket 754, or the model that uses a Socket 939)

Need help in finding a replacement computer case fan, or Processor fan? State so in an additional comment.

SOURCE: when pluged into outlet fans spins and doesnt stop, wont boot

Fan spinning hard is usually a CPU issue.
If you've made any hardware changes to your computer, undo them. This happened to me when I was trying to upgrade my Processor (CPU) and I had the wrong kind.

My acer aspire 7735z turns on but won't boot up


Hello,

your hard disk maybe corrupt.

The operating system is in the hard drive, so if it won't boot, your OS might need to be repaired or reinstalled.

You will be needing OS CD to carry out the re installation

Good luck.

My acer Keeps shutting down Could it just be dirty or do need to upgrade the power supply


Overheating 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.

I was restoring from the Acer recovery disk that I created when my process crashed before it completed. Now it won't boot up at all...HELP!


Your best bet is to reinstall the operating system. I couldn't count the number of times that the Recovery Discs created by users fail, it's very common. The only recovery that works a high percentage of the time is when the manufacturer puts a recovery partition on your hard drive.

You can try your Recovery Disc again, but if it produces the same results, just reinstall your operating system fresh. It shouldn't matter because either way you will lose your data.

When I plug the unit into power, the CPU fan runs very fast but no boot, and then when I press power on the fan slows down and the PC boots normally. It shuts down in about 30 minutes with no sign of...


Sounds like you are overheating. One way to tell if it's overheating is you say it will run for about 30 minutes then shuts down. When it shuts down try rebooting to see if the boots successfully. If it fails to boot successfully right after it shut down then you are probably overheating. If you wait awhile to let it cool down for 30 minutes or so and if you reboot and it does it successfully you definitely have a overheating problem. If I remember correctly all those compaq sr series have loud and fast running fans. Computers overheat because of three reasons for the most part: 1) A fan has stopped working. 2) The Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is not thick enough to keep the unit cool. 3) Dust has clogged the fan vents and inside the computer. Fortunately for you desktops don't have to be completely disassembled like laptops to get to the fan, CPU and heatsink. Just pop the case and you'll see the components attached to the motherboard

DELL 8400 MAKES A LOUD FAN NOISE AND WONT BOOT


There are 2 basic fans in Dell tower one for the power supply and the other for the Processor. If your computer is not booting then the Processor fan is most likely to be the culprit. What could be happening is that the Processor fan is no longer turning fast enough to cool the processor, so normal the processor when it over heats there is either protection to switch off the computer automatically or the computer won't boot. The best thing is to change the fan and make sure it is working properly but checking on the cables that they won't entangle on top of the fan to impede it's movement. You can easily damage your processor if the fan is not working properly.

If there are no error status codes under device manager, then either you have some OS corruption and need to reinstall the OS or the webcam is defective. I would be more inclined to say the latter.
Skype is a good test, since you've obviously done that its most likely bad.
You could test the os theory by downloading hiren boot cd, burn the image to disc and boot into the mini xp live part, install skype and driver under it and test the web cam.
If its under warrenty just have them replace the web cam, if not i could replace it at a reasonable price. Comment back for additional assistance.

Acer Aspire t160 issues


ok heres how you remove bios password.

Open the door where the RAM is fitted and remove RAM from the holders. Look for two metal bars (GOLD?) near or between the RAM sockets.
Take a papare clip and short the bars out against each other. Replace the ram close the trap and reboot. That should do it

Turns on but no boot


I had this happen sometimes after a windows update/reboot.
If the computer is on, hold down the power button until it cuts off.
Unplug the power cord. Wait for a couple of minutes.
Plug the cord back in, and turn on system.
