Question about MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI Motherboard
Saw post on somehow using a paint brush to fix the problem...?? I am very pc illit and need explanation in simple understandible step by step terms.the mobo is a K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI.
There are many sensitive parts inside your CPU that can be destroyed by simply opening your box/chassis.
*If you are not confident that you can safely open the casing, then you should seek assistance from a qualified technician.
Remove the power cables before proceeding!
The first step in checking to see if your CPU fan is working is to remove the case cover, normally secured with screws at the back.
Most common chassis covers will slide out after the screws are removed.
*Make sure that you maintain contact with the metal part of the chassis to avoid causing ESD damage to your CPU/internals.
Next step, re-attach the power cable and avoid touching the metal chassis this time (there is a risk of shock) before you power on. You should see the fan moving at this point, if it is still working.
Fan not moving? You can take that small paint brush and very carefully run the brush along the fan blades to clear them of dust bunnies. This could also get your fan to run again. It is an immediate solution, but not long term.
It is more adviseable to replace the fan if it siezes or stops working.
Hope this helps.
