Question about Linare Desktop, AMD Sempron 2200,40 GB HDD & 128 MB RAM

Desk top overheating

My client has a desktop with an overheating problem. He thinks it is dirty or a fan problem. How long should it take to analyze the problem and how long should it take to remove and replace the fan if needed? He also wants to put a key on his router to beef up security. Is there a common TCP/IP address to use to do this? The last time I did it on my network it took about an hour. Is that about right?

It'll take about 5 minutes to analyze the fan issue (This is just for removing the covers from the computer)and about 1 minute to replace it if needed.
Also setting the security will take about 5 minutes as well and I need to know the router brand to give IP address for router page.

About 15 min to replace a fan. Adding a key for wireless networking probably another 15 minutes if you are very skilled, 30 min to an hour if you have to muddle through it looking things up in the manual or online. There is no standard method of accessing the settings on the router other than plugging into a wired connection and using the web browser to go to http://<router IP address> and entering username/password combination.

Desk top computer w/ SN: CNH4390C89, P/N PJ506AA, won't turn on. when it was working, fan was noisy most of the time


The computer fan may be clogged with dust or may have failed. The computer monitors the fan and if it is not working it will not let the computer start. It is a way for the pc to keep itself from overheating. Unplug the computer and open the cover and carefully try to vacuum or blow out all the dust. Then with the cover off try starting the computer and watch the fans and see which one is not turning, it may start if there was a lot off dust. If not the fan may need to be replaced.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Tip

Laptop or desktop computer overheating? Follow these tips to solve the problem


If you think your computer or laptop is overheating, follow these tips to solve the problem:

1) To confirm that overheating is the problem, install CPUID's Hardware Monitor (free download here):
http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php
Install Hardware Monitor and run it. The temperature of your CPU should be lower than 70 C for a laptop (lower than 60 C for a desktop PC). The temperature of your video card should be lower than 60, even if you're running a complex 3D game. The temperature of your HD depends on your manufacturer, but it should never be higher than 45 C (55 C for a 10,000 rpm driver)

2) To keep computer heat as low as possible, clean up your laptop or desktop regularly, removing dust and dirt. Remove the computer cover and use a compressed air can to blow the dirt out. Also, take care of verifying that the fan(s) move easily.

3) If you have a desktop computer, avoid placing it directly on the floor, since they will collect more dust thsi way. Place it on your desk. Also, avoid putting it inside any enclosure. Allow at least 3 inches between the sides of the case and a wall to allow plenty of air circulation.

4) If you have a laptop, avoid using it on top of any fabric (blanket, bed, pillow, etc). This blocks most of the airflow, causing overheating.

5) Laptops are not optimally designed for heavy gaming, which stresses your CPU and video card, producing very large amounts of heat. In other words, if your laptop overheats while playing 3d games, accept that this may be just normal for your machine... or play your games on a desktop PC.

6) Overclocking your CPU, GPU and/or FSB will produce much more heat than normal. To avoid the extra heat, do not overclock.

Fan works randomly....when it's not working plug


Hi, If the computer is hot near the electrical plug in the back of the computer then the power supply needs to be replaced. This will also cause overheating problems if the fan does not exhaust enough air. You should not run the computer in this condition because the power supply can short out and take other components with it. Also there is a risk that it will burn up. Power supplies are very inexpensive and can be changed by anyone with basic computer repair knowledge. Hank

Cooling fan runs constantly coming off stand-by


Has it always done this or is this a recent problem?
Try this: right click on your desk top's start screen, select properties, select screen saver, select poweer, select hibernate. Make sure that hibernate is checked and select apply. Now when you hibernate your computer will remember all the info you were working on AND it should make the fan run normally on start up.
Not all computers have the hibernate feature and it cannot be added, so let's hope yours was built with it at the factory. Good luck!

Video card fan gettin gnoisy


If the noise is troubling you can see about ordering a replacement for it. Thats the easiest fix. Your other choice is to take it all apart and see whats up in the inside of the fan.
