Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My CPU fan doesn't work. When I turn the computer on, it gives me the HP blue screen then a black screen saying that the CPU fan is broken. When I look at it, it has a lot of dust. I am wondering if I should open it up and click the fan. I got an HP Pavilion, XP Home edition. I am wondering where the CPU fan would be located when I open it up.

The cpu fan is located on top of the heatsink

the heat sink is a large silver square with slits on the top.

It's really easy to indentify

Just clean it out using some computer air spray, found at bestbuy and walmart.

Also, when your looking at it, make sure the cable is connected to the motherboard

I hope this helps!

I have an hp pavillion a6500f that soon as it is turned on has a constant alarm and is not sending a signal to the monitor. Screen says no signal and then remains black.


If you mean a constant beeping, open the case and see if the CPU fan is running, check also that the heatsink is firmly attached to the board, this noise usually points to a n overheating CPU, if you get no activity on screen,it is because there is no signal being sent to the monitor. Do not operate the computer until you have checked the fan is working, you need to establish if there is power getting to the fan by testing with a multimeter on the motherboard cpu fan pins. If you are getting power, replace the fan, worthwhile removing and regreasing the CPU and making sure it is firmly in place.

If there still is no signal, replace CPU, but also try a different graphics card (faulty video will give 9 beeps).

After that, check the ram is firmly in place.

Upon booting, I get a screen that says my CPU fan has failed. The PC is a hp touchsmart iq770. If I order a new fan, is it something that I can replace myself....or do I need an experienced technician?


If you go to a computer shop and you can tell them wich type of motherboard and or cpu you have, they can give you the cpu fan you need. The replacement is easy but it depends on wich cpu you have. First of all i would check the power connection cable of you cpu fan to your motherboard. Are you sure the fan doens't turn any more?

Computer does not boot, blue on light lites up but


Now when you say blue power light, what are the rest of the lights doing, does the hard drive light flash, does the fans turn on, does the hard drive make it's spinning noise, if so you may just have a bad LCD inverter which is very common and about a 40$ part. you can test this by trying to hook the laptop up to an external monitor and see what happens.

Well, in the second (Gege) case you have a bad windows. Repair using a recovery CD (one most likely came with your comp). Whyme, take it in for repair; someones been messing with your BIOS.

Intel Cpu Fan ReWiring


Here is the pinout for the wiring:


Pin Name Color 1 GND black 2 +12VDC yellow 3 Sense green 4 Control blue

In case this doesn't show...Black is Ground and Yellow is +12VDC.

Not sure if it will work w/o a Sense (Green) and Control (Blue) line though.
