Re: e machines h 5038

I had found one continuous problem with the E machine. The CPU fan. Take the cover off. Turn on the system. Is the cpu fan running or very noisey???. I find that the fan as most others collect a lot of dust. You will have to either vacumn or blow the dust & dirt out to free the fan so it spins normally. If the fan has stopped or stops and starts, replace it that may be the reason for the freeze up due to the cpu chip becoming overheated. Now if you are talking about the other fan. The power supply fan stopping and starting the system would shut down when that happens. That would be another issue.

Hp a6750y After surfing the web for about ten minutes the computer locks up then you have to rebot it

Ok. Starting with the simple first. This machine has an AMD processor installed. They, by historical design, tend to run hotter than their Intel counterparts. Before I went crazy, I would open the machine and inspect the cooling fan and heat sink to determine if they have been clogged by dust and debris. Heat is the worst enemy of a PC, and CPUs will shut down when too hot. If you see clogged fins in the heat sink, get some canned air and blow out the debris. Hopefully that will solve the problem. If you smoke near the machine or keep the machine on the floor, it will clog up much faster than normal.

Startup freezes and sleeps for 5-10 minutes

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.

Would like to know if the rear panel fan of this cpu supposed to run all times

Yes, but the RPM's of the fan will change when the heat sensors reach a pre determined temp. You didn' mention your Make. Model of computer or your OS? Overheating will shut down the machine, this is done to prevent damage to components. You may have a bad fan or sensor, or worse. What is the age of the machine? Try to use SpeedFan: Not knowing your machine, I'm not sure it will work with your hardware.

I am running Wxp on my Acer L100. After about 15

first things first pls check if the cpu fan is seated properly.
if not pls try to reseat the cpu fan, but before doing it put thermal paste on top of the cpu to haver a better contact on the cpu

if the fan is seated properly check the rpm of the fan on bios mode see if the rpm of the fan is fast enough.. if not then there's the problem.

this things only happens if the cooling system of your processor is malfunctioning. Your built in hardware monitor tends to turn of the computer to prevent further damage,,

First try alt+control+delete option if u can reach on task manager. close all application from task manager and it should be good to go.

it might be number of reasons why your computer are freezing. but make sure about ur cpu fan if its stop working or not cooling your system 's processor. This fan is located on top of your processor.
that would be the worst one coz it could fry up ur processor.

Some other reasons may be faulty ram, any new hardware changes etc.
but next time please explain your situation little more thouroughly so its easy for anybody here to help you ..
Good luck !!!

Equium M40X freezes

Hi, it seems your experiencing a overheat issue. At least one fan inside your PC has stopped working. The PC monitors internal heat, when the PC reaches a certain temperature it will shut down & or freeze. Chances are it's the CPU fan.
Link for your model no#

Good luck!

Computer locks up suddenly & screen goes blank

Sounds as if you have an overheating problem, remove the side panels of your desktop and see if you get any longer before he crash. While the sides are off check the Heatsink and fan are'nt clogged with dust and check that the cables are not restricting the air flow. If the panels removed stop the crash, you may have to fit a system fan to remove hot air, they are only cheap and do the job. The worst case senario is a processor problem and will need replacing.
