Question about ASUS A7N8X-VM Motherboard
Motherboard : Asus a7n8x-vm 400
When I start the system, it is showing CPU fan error. Please help us to resolve the problem.
It will do this when it senses that the fan is not working properly or that maybe a setting fo the fan is incorrect
First off. If you changedanything using any motherboard utility then change it back or reset defaults.
Second. Open the computer case and check that the fan and poer supply are not full of gunk after you have unplugged the computer.
if so then get a can of compressed air meant for cleaning computers and take it outside to blow all the gunk out whilst wearing glasses.
Dont poke the nozzle inside anything.
When you have done that check that the cooling fan for the cpu is secure to the cpu itself (dont remove unles it is loose)
Also check that the fan spins freely.
If it doesnt or feels loose then replace the cooler
Check your manual for the exact instructions but you should remove the cooler completely
DO NOT REMOVE THE CPU
Now with nothing more than isopropynol and cotton bud sticks or another alcohol based cleaner remove the old thermal grease / sticker from the top of the CPU (make sure it is clean)
At this point it is up to you but you could consider a newer better cooler
You could take your old cooler to a good computer shop show them it and just ask for a better one
If you are using your original cooler then here we go
Do the same with the underside of the cooler.
While the cooler is off it may be worth giving it a good 8low job
Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on
Here are some basic instructions
Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.
If everything went to plan you should now be back in business.
Another consideration is that many cases have places in them for extra fans and usually extra connections on the motherboard too.
They are quick and easy to fit.
Quite often I will fit TWO in what is called a push/pull configuration. One pulls cool air in while the other pushes hot air out
