Question about Acer Aspire T310 PC Desktop

1 Answer

No boot up screen

I switch it on but nothing comes up on the screen, the fans are going at full speed and they don't slow down to normal speed like before. I took the memory module out and it doesn't even beep when I try to turn it on again. It doesn't even make a beep when I switch it on. Is the mobo gone?

The mother Board is a possibility, but I think that first I would check the main power supply. It is best to substitute in a known good PS to verify. If a good power supply fails to correct. I would look on the mother board for obvious hot spots or electrolytic capacitors with bulging tops or shrunken PVC outer coverings. Manufacturers have built with defective or incorrectly marked capacitors before. I have repaired several by just replacing the caps that had overheated and started to vent pressure after doming their tops.

Good luck.

How do I access the BIOS settings for the P5LP-LE motherboard. The startup key says to press F1, but pressing F1 does nothing.

The instructions say:
"Hold down the F1 key during the startup process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter/reset any custom BIOS settings." I would also try hitting the F1 key multiple times from the very turn on of the computer because the key may have to register at some point after turning on.

Try clearing the CMOS settings as explained on this page, it should clear out any passwords and will set the BIOS settings back to factory settings.

As for "The CPU fan runs normally on boot, but as soon as the Windows flash screen comes up, the CPU fan slows way down."
This is quite normal. On start-up the temperature of the CPU is not being read, when the flash screen comes up just happens to be the same time that the computer recognizes that the CPU is cold and doesn't need to be cooled.

On the "Then the installation program starts running and the CPU Fan speed starts fluctuating wildly from slow to extremely fast."
This could be normal as when files are read from a DVD the CPU doesn't work hard, but when it unpacks the files or does calculations it does work hard. Or it could be that the thermal paste between the CPU and the heat sink is not correct. Either dry , not making contact, or even too much. If the heat is not being transferred that would also explain the shut-down.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant

It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

Do you know of a way to slow down the LOW speed fan setting on a Kelvinator KSE70HRA air conditioner? Low is very noisy and blows air like a HIGH setting.

Hi, no, im sorry if it is on low already, it can't be changed to go any lower. The only thing I can come up with is the fan motored is wired wrong, and they have the high or med lead connected to the low speed, as it should run slow. On a central air system, there is a board that is in the indoor unit that shows the fan speeds, and they can be changed.I didnt look up your unit, and if it is a central air and not a window unit, you can change the speeds at the board. The wires are colored, blue is normally low, red is Hi, and blk or yellow is med. If this is a window unit, there is nothing much you can do. If you know anything about electrical, and you have a 3 speed fan, pull the cover to get to the switch back, and see what leads the have terminated to the switch. They may have it miswired. I wish you the best of luck,

The fans change speed depending on the temperature the sensors detect.
Give your machine a thourough cleaning.
The CPU sensor is usually located under the CPU if it's loaded with dust it may think it's hotter then need be and kicks the fan up.

Gateway MX6447 system fan doesn't come on during normal use; the

On my computer, in Control Panel/Device Manager/System Devices I find five (five!) ACPI Fan devices listed. None of them have any adjustable parameters. However, in regedit I find two settings for each: 1) Slow the processor before increasing fan speed (this is ON), and 2) Increase fan speed before slowing the processor (this is OFF).

So...on my computer I am going to say there is no registry setting to make the fan run all the time...can't say that's also true for yours.

Infocus in26 fan runs continually

The fan does run continuously on this projector however it should be running very very slow when the projector has completed it's lamp cool down routine.
The reason for this is that a portion of the switching power supply remains energized (running) when the projector is at rest. But as I mentioned it should run very slow in this state. If it remains running full blast then most likely the fan speed control chip is shorted which can cause fail 2 ways, either the fan 1. runs full
speed or 2. remains stalled (then the projector will go over-temp and shut itself down) I hope this answers you question.
