Question about Intel D915GAG Socket 775 Motherboard - 915G Chipset - Onboard Audio, Video, Lan - MicroATX

3 Answers

All the fans went to full speed and my motherboard has a "gateway/intel" bios. Aside from getting fans with manual speed control is there a way to replace the bios with an intel version? All suggestions are welcome.

The fans are working right. The fans automatically respond if your PC getting hot. Open your PC and carefully clean the insides for accumulated dust with a 1 - inch paint brush. Then, check
the processor cooler (fan or watercooled) if this is running well. Close
your PC and test run your PC.

Swapping a bios as you suggest could be very risky and may result in a dead motherboard. I would advise against it.

Take a look at the additional information below and see if that helps out

Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

If it is it will have to be re-seated.

If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem the have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on

I think this may be your problem before you buy a new CPU make sure you check the cooler assembly and make sure you use new thermal grease ($2-5)

DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

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

Hardware Monitor not working- Intel D945GNT


Not sure what chip you are using, but your problem is one which I have had and solved by the most extreme heat dissipation methods possible...I even went to the extremity of packaging dry ice in Plastic and using an external fan to literally produce arctic temperatures inside the case.
It did attenuate or reduce the heating problem and the Intel hardware monitors took note of that, but I also notice some degradation in the extent of the graphic presentation of the on screen diagnostic display of temperature, fan speeds, etc.

So, with your new problem, since you apparently responded to the three long beeps by adding a keyboard or other peripheral, and solved it, a full statement of that problem with all specs would be appropriate, unless you can no longer read the display.

Intel D865GBF hangs for error thermal event


The solution to your problem can be found at this webpage : http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-012552.htm.
It guides you on how to solve overheating problems. Personally I think you need to unseat your processors and refix after cleaning and applying a fresh coat of the Heat Conducting Paste and re-seat it very, very carefully. Gently in the beginning and once u are sure that it has got into its slot smoothly then press harder until u hear two cliks, like a double lock. Fix the Heat sink &see that the retaining clips are snug tight. Try it & post the results........sodeep
Quote "High Temperature Alerts
If Intel Active Monitor or Intel Desktop Utilities alerts you about temperatures above set thresholds, there are a number of steps you can take.

Check for proper airflow:
  • Make sure the processor and chassis fans are running.
  • Check the cabling; make sure cables are not interfering with proper airflow through the chassis.
  • Check that nothing is blocking airflow into and out of the chassis' airflow vents. This is common in direct airflow systems (BTX). Chassis manufacturers may apply a dust filter in front of the CPU fan inlet. Check that the filter is clear and free of dust buildup.
  • Make sure that the air intakes for the external fans are unobstructed and are located at least several inches away from walls and other items.
  • Make sure that the power supply fan is running properly and any other external case fans are running properly.
  • Consider adding another chassis fan.
Other troubleshooting steps:
  • If your PC uses an Intel® Pentium® 4 processor in the LGA775 package, be sure the heatsink is properly installed and 'locked'. Pay particular attention to the proper orientation of the locking pins and give a good push down on the pins (sounds like a double click) to lock them into place. For complete processor and heatsink integration information, refer to Boxed Processor Installation.
  • Verify the chassis/case and power supply are appropriate for the processor model and frequency and the motherboard you are using.
  • Verify the thermal solution for the processor is adequate for the processor and frequency of the processor.
  • Make sure the processor fan cable is connected to the correct fan header (specifically for the processor). Refer to your motherboard documentation for more information.
  • Make sure that the thermal interface material or the thermal grease is applied to the processor properly.
  • Update the system BIOS to the newest version. This will often correct problems with how the system measures temperature.
Fan Control Behavior Changes after BIOS Updates
After updating to the latest BIOS version on certain Intel Desktop Boards, the CPU fan may not go to full speed operation until the processor reaches about 72°C (162°F) and all system fans go to full speed at 75°C (167°F). You may see temperature alerts in Intel Desktop Utilities.
Previously, certain processors' thermal values were not available to the BIOS so the BIOS was unable to perform the appropriate fan control (the fans ran at 100% constantly). With recent BIOS updates, the thermal values are available and the BIOS will run the appropriate fan control. This means the processor may reach temperatures of up to 75°C (167°F) before the fan will go to full speed. The fan control now allows processor temperatures to rise to optimal levels while the slower fan speeds improve acoustics.
Setting Temperature Thresholds in Intel® Active Monitor or Intel® Desktop Utilities
By default, the temperature thresholds in the hardware monitoring software are set as follows: Zone Intel® Active Monitor
Intel® Desktop Utilities (ver. 2.0.11.46 and earlier)
Intel® Desktop Utilities (ver. 2.1.8.63 and later) Processor 75°C
(167°F)
75°C
(167°F)
75°C
(167°F)
Zone 1, Zone 2, or Motherboard Zone 50°C
(122°F)
50°C
(122°F)
65°C
(149°F)
If you've checked for proper airflow and performed the other troubleshooting steps listed above and you still consistently receive high temperature alerts in any of the temperature zones:
  • If you are using Intel Active Monitor, you may increase the temperature threshold. You can safely increase the Zone 1, Zone 2 or Motherboard Zone threshold up to 60 Degrees Celsius (140 Degrees Fahrenheit).
  • If you are using Intel Desktop Utilities version 2.0.11.46 or earlier, upgrade the software to the latest version, which sets the zone default thresholds to 65°C.
  • It is not recommended that you increase the Processor Zone threshold.

Fan problem


No sorry. Fans can be monitored through the bios & even set to give you an alarm when the speed gets too low but you can not increase the fan speed. You can replace it with a faster rpm fan.
Standard cpu fans run between 3100rpm to 6000rpm. It is up too you. Some creat a wee bit too much noise after 4000rpm.
Heres a few for your Intel Socket 775 Pentium 4.
