Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

Try replacing the power supply - I had a similar problem that was fixed that way. If that doesn't work, it's probably the motherboard itself. The CPU is also possible - have you overclocked it or otherwise cooked it? Is the CPU cooler/fan blocked with fluff, or has the fan been slow (or stopped) - noisy fan is a sign of bearing stiffness/partial seizure which slows the fan and lets the CPU get too hot. If the CPU is fried, you get the symptoms you describe (MB won't start the PS)

Cpu fan > just stops working


Most likely there is some kind of software management of the fan.
Boot to the BIOS CMOS settings, and see whether there is a "Quiet Fan" or "Q-Fan" setting (or the like) enabled.
Disable this by selecting "Fan runs always".
If you could provide the model number of the desktop, I may be able to give you more specifics.

CPU fan error at boot.. Spin fan manually at power up and it works. Why is this? Fan continues to run just fine until computer is powered down


The fan needs to be replaced. When you provide the "umph" to start the fan, it is able to continue by itself. The exposure to heat and the accumulation of dust and dirt has begun to interfere with its ability to start from a stopped position.

The fan should be replaced with an identical fan - preferably from a new CPU heat sink. Do not replace the entire heat sink unless you are prepared to clean the CPU and apply new thermal grease, etc. It is far easier (and probably just as good) to replace the fan only by removing both the old and new fans and swapping out.

Eventually, starting the fan by hand will no longer allow the fan to run by itself. It is better to make the repair now than have the fan fail and cause the CPU to over heat - possibly catastrophically.

Good luck!

CPU Fan sounds like a jet and computer won't start


It sounds more like the hard drive, the fan has nothing to do with your computer booting up. If the hard drive is starting to go bad it will not boot up, that's what it sounds like your computer is doing. I recommend checking out the hard drive and replacing it.

Zalman VF2000 LED fan starts then stops right after boot


Sounds like a defective fan, something having to do with the thermal probe, it causes the fan to speed up when cpu gets hot and to slow down when the cpu is cool. I suggest returning it for another one

I have a acer travelmate 290 and when i push the power button he start and right after this the processor stop (wont boot) and the light of the cd at the top of keyboard stay open please help me...


It could be many reasons. But worst one could be CPU fan failure. If your CPU fan is not working properly then your computer wont boot but most imp thing is, it could damage your processor coz of overheating.
Another reason may be faulty ram, motheboard problem, hardware failure etc.
so cant say for sure but make sure ur fan is cooling ur processor.
Hope it helps
please rate
