Try to replace your CPU Fan. And also check your power supply if it still supplies the correct voltage your motherboard needs.

CPU keeps overhreating.


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.

With asus m4a785-m motherboard and amd phenom x4 9600b quad core cpu why does monitor displays a cpu fan error when fan is running full speed.


Hmm, I've never seen a computer give a CPU fan error. Maybe if the fan is really dusty it's clogging it up, try getting some canned air and spraying it out.

I've had a bad dust problem and my cpu fan began making a loud whirring noise and finally the computer shut down altogether. Took the cover off totally cleaned out the dust and turned the power back on....


If the computer detects overheating or fan failure it will shut down automatically. If you replace the fan you should be fine. Remove your old fan and try to get one that connects the same way, some of them connect directly to the heat sink, others to the motherboard.

Boots up for ~15 sec. then shuts down


Usually a motherboard will shut the system down to save itself. So check that the fans are spinning and that the heatsink is properly seated. You should also test in a minimum configuration be removing all add in cards, disconnecting all drives and unnecessary cables, and removing all but one memory module. If this doesn't point out the faulty components then either the motherboard (most likely) or CPU (less likely) is faulty.

CPU fan stops, computer shuts down


You must have the CPU fan plugged into the CPU fan power connector or the system can not monitor the fans speed. Your PC will shut down & give you that message. (The fan must be connected to the correct power plug).
If when you did replace the CPU's fan & had to remove the heat sink, which is where the fan screws into & did not clean the old thermal grease off the CPU & heatsink & replace with new thermal grease than your CPU will still overheat. If you add thermal grease over top of old thermal grease your CPU will over heat.
This is all a balancing act. If any one is not correct your system will shut down. (This is better than killing the CPU).
To remove old thermal grease use a clean cloth damped with house hold alcohol & use the same on the bottom of the heatsink. Please allow plenty of time for the alcohol to dry.

Good Luck! Take your time.

Hello.., i m using asus K8VMX motherboard...problem is it is shutting down


Yes, It most likely is a overheating issue.. The motherboard has a feature built-in which monitors CPU temperature and shuts down the system as soon as CPU temps exceed manufacturer's limit.. Kindly look into reseating the Heatsink Fan (HSF) also make sure the base of it that contacts the CPU is Clean so proper contact area can be achieved, also apply some thermal paste if handy or available.. Also take a note if the Heatsink Fan is connected and functioning properly..

Hi, have you tried removing the CPU and using a Air Jet Spray can to clean all contact pins and pin holes? The problem sounds like a loose chip. So also check all on board chips are seated, including RAM chips. Air spray can be bought from most Computer stores. Goodluck mistyman
