I want to remove the whole cooling system and fan on my motherboard and change it to a new one. How do i do?

Hi sampeb300,

Regarding to your Problem here is the Step by Step Procedure,

Step 1: Turn off your computer, Please remove the power cable to ensure the flow of electricity is gone.

Step 2: Use an anti static wrist strap to safely ground your self.

Step 3: Remove the Cables connected from your fan to motherboard. This is usually a 4 pin cable, depends on the type of your motherboard.

Step 4: Unscrew the Fan from your Pc Case.

Step 5: Vice Versa in Installing just do the procedure,

Hope This Helps,

For removing the cpu fan. remove the cables connected to the motherboard then remove the fan from the cpu chip, now always remember in installing a new cpu chip always apply a thermal compound before locking the fan to the chip.

Each time i start my laptop..... its screen is split into four sections ......even boot screen ... and main screen

You have a video problem.
To test this, connect the laptop to an external monitor, if the problem persists, then the GPU (Graphics chip is going bad). If it works ok, the problem is with the screen itself.

To resolve the problem with the graphics chip (and usually when it gets this bad, it points to the graphics chip beginning to unsolder itself from the motherboard), strip the laptop, clean out the cooling fan, remove and replace the CPU and CPU heatsink, applying new thermal paste to the cpu and making sure the thermal pad is covering the top of the graphics chip. Tighten the retaining screws and re-assemble the laptop. This MAY work, if it does not, then you will need to get the motherboard replaced. (Common fault on HP and Compaq laptops).

If the screen is the problem, replace the screen, check security of the VGA cable to the screen

Depending on how old the laptop is, it sadly may be more cost effective to replace it, as screen and motherboard replacements will be in the region of £70.00

Cpu not heating, ite chip getting very hot ,no display

If the fan on top of CPU is dirty, dusty, damaged or not connected properly,it could cause CPU to overheat. The Computer should switch off automatically to prevent damage to CPU (they can burn out very quickly if not cooled properly!!!)

1. Is the fan connected properly to motherboard?
Check cable running from fan
2. Is fan dirty or dusty?
Use a small brush or can of compressed air to remove dust off fan. Never use a normal household vacumn cleaner-this can create a static electric discharge which could damage components.
3. Is fan damaged ie does it spin when powered on?
Replace fan with similar make and model

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya

I have a gateway 831gm. it has an Intel (Augsburg) 915G Motherboard and a Pentium 4 630 cpu 800MHz fsb & 2MB L2 cache. i've been looking for a cpu upgrade and saw that the Pentium E5200 Dual Core has...

If both motherboards are LGA775 socket, then the next concern is whether or not the case is capable of having the new motherboard installed into it. Disconnect all power cables to all dv drives or cd drives and hard drives. Disconnect all ribbons from drives to the mother board. If you can get to all of the screws that hold the motherboard into the case, you get away without removing drives. Once you've got the motherboard then you can disconnect the power cable from the motherboard. Remove the memory chips, disconnect the sound cable from the old motherboard. install the memory chips onto the new mobo, Connect the power cable to the new mobo, then install the new mobo into the case. Replace the ribbons from the drives to the mobo, replace the power cables to the drives and reinstall the sound cable to the cd or dv drive. You should be done now.

The computer does not boot up a tall

You'll have to include more information. Model number of the motherboard, if the computer beeps when it turns on, if so the pattern of the beeps.
From what you've stated it could be plenty of problems. I'll list a few things from simplest to most difficult for you to start with.
First make sure that everything is firmly attached to the motherboard... power connection, data cables, memory, heat sync and processor... often a loose connection will be the problem.
If you have multiple RAM chips installed, try removing one - a faulty RAM chip could also prevent a computer from booting in some cases.
If it still doesn't work, try disconnecting ALL the data cables and the power lines for everything except motherboard and video card (if your video card has a power cable attached, that is) If the computer turns on, the most likely problem is that one of your hard drive or CD-Roms is IDE, and the connection is backwards.
If that doesn't work, remove the heat sync and fan over the processor, and make sure that the thermal paste isn't rock solid... (usually a white substance that helps transfer the heat from the CPU out) If the thermal paste looks cooked, go buy a tube of it (pretty cheap, you can get it at any computer hardware store) and replace it. Make sure you take off ALL the old paste from the heat sync and the processor before applying a new, uniform layer. Unfortunately, if the thermal paste wasn't present, or was very spent... it might've fried your CPU... not likely in newer computers however, since motherboards have heat sensors designed to shut down the PC before any harm comes to the CPU, so don't rush out to replace the CPU just yet.

If it STILL doesn't turn on, the problem could be in your power supply, or on the motherboard itself. First look the board over carefully, to see if anything looks melted, charred or somehow deformed. If so, you're probably better off replacing the entire board, if not, your problem is either the power supply itself, or you've fried the CPU.

Hopefully one of these helps with your problem, if not get back to me with more information.

Video error beep codes not video problem

Sounds like Bad Memory chips try just using one chip. even though youve replaced the video card. so im guessing memory could be bad, at least one of them.

try not reseating them but just using one at a time in the slots

also yeah reseating the CPU can help too, an over heating CPU will still boot up, but not advisable. make sure heatsink is present and fans are working. thermal grease is good too on cpu.

but check memory if you have mixed memory like 128mb and 512mb chips try smaller one first if it works then try the higher one.

but sounds like a memory problem, they can go bad almost instantly.
