Disconnect everything except for the power to the motherboard. If you turn on the computer and everything still turns off, then try another known working power supply. If the machine stays turned on then connect power to your drives one at a time with the computer off each time to see which drive is the culprit.

If everything still turns off then reseat the CPU and the memory and if it still turns off then that means the motherboard is bad and it would need to be replaced.

I have a Samsung rs21!!! it wont cool in either compartment. when I plug it in the compressor fan does a quarter turn then stops. the compressor runs for about 30 seconds then cuts out? any ideas plea


most likely the start relay on the compressor that changes from start windings to run windings. the compressor will run for about 30 seconds on start windings then click out on internal thermal overload.
this can be confirmed by turning it on and letting it do the 30 second run then when it stops just wait and see if it cuts in and tries to run again (usually takes about 5 min) the second time it cuts in it wil most likely not run for as long (usually about 10 seconds). if this is what it does get a new compressor start/run relay.
as for the fan flick it with your finger and see if it spins freely.

It is normal for a Gateway ML6732 that the fan starts when turn on the laptop and then stops the fan couple seconds after that? My laptop gets freeze all the time seconds after.


Hi,

That is normal for when the laptop starts up. That is also a good indication that the fan is working ok. If the fan loud and noisy all the time then there is a build up of dust in the machine and it needs cleaning out,

Gateway Mt6730 starts up and then message comes up CPU Fan Overheating and shuts down in 5 seconds. Cleaned the fan but still does this.


Hi,

Try cleaning the air vents too with a can of compressed air as dust can block these vents causing the CPU to overheat. The vents can be located at the back or sides of the laptop. Also a good idea is check and make sure that the CPU fan itself is working and spinning up.



Regards.

Overheating


Overheating is a big issue with Gateway. It mostly involves problems with the fan. When Gateway receives a warranty fan problem they replace it with a fan that is reconditioned or rebuilt (probably from another cutomer's unit like yours) and they don't seem to last long. To make sure it is a fan problem, which is the most common, Turn on the laptop and wait to see if the fan is turning on. It won't take long, processors get hot quick. The fan should turn on and run anywhere from 3 to 15 seconds then turn off. It should do this approx every 5 to 7 minutes in order to keep the processor cool. If it doesn't work at all, works seeming sporadically, or the processor gets really hot before the fan starts, then it's a fan problem, and a NEW fan should be purchased. If the fan works properly, then it could be that the fan and heat sink need to be cleaned internally due to dust build up.

Gateway 675 fan problem


Check the BIOS in the laptop. The CPU fan and unit fan is controlled by temp. U can set it for a lower temp. The Bios is accessed when U boot up... F2 usually, There should be a 5 to 15 second screen telling u what to press to get there.

Good luck
