Re: Problem with my Computer

Is this a desktop or a laptop?

In either case, it could be one of your fans is not functioning. There is a fan on top of the heatsink on the CPU. If it's not turning then the CPU will shut itself down before it's destroyed...this is a good thing. If this is a desktop then the case fan may have failed. Make certain both of these fans are turning. You will need to open the computer to see the CPU fan.

If they are both turning then it's possible the CPU heatsink fins are filled with dust. This prevents airflow. If this is the case, use your vaccuum cleaner to get the dust out. This will be much easier if you have a desktop, opening laptops is more involved.

Please let us know what you find.

Dear sir, my motherboard is amd athlon 64 socket 939.when i on the system then system is running but processor fan is not rotating.Finally after 25-30 minutes it automatically turned of and displays cpu...

It sounds like the cpu's temperature is raising over the safety level set in the bios so it switches off and displays the error!
to solve this either:

Your cpu cooler fan needs replacing


Your current cooler fan isn't connected to the correct socket on your board (check you're user manual, usually a .pdf you can download from manufacturers site)


Just try connecting your current cooler fan to the cpu and see if it turns on at all. If not make sure you replace it with one that is compatible with your system that can fit in your case

If the temperature has raised to a significant level the thermal paste could probably use replacing also, so get some thermal paste remover and thermal paste, and read in your motherboard user manual how to replace the cpu heat sink safely.

HI ! I bought a new AMD phenom quad-core 9750 2.40ghz processor and Gigabyte motherboard. I m unable to install Windows and the system automatically shuts down every 20 min and sometimes runs for more...

This processor need better cooling system as it is powerful it need more power so I suggest you to upgrade your Power Supply and buy more efficient processor fan cooler. Also you should check if processor is properly installed on motherboard and there should be some special thermal grease between processor and motherboard ( for better thermal conductivity

Computer won't boot-up

hi, is the ide-ata enabled in the bios? do you have sata? and is it enabled?also did you put thermal compound on the cpu' s heatsink when you put it back on the cpu? the 2 second on thing sounds like over-heating,do check the bios first. alot of motherboards have a thermal shutdown, so if the fan or compound failed, it would quikly shut off. as for the channels not working-you can try your primary drive, and see if it boots. but first see if it is on in the bios. check and replace the battery on the motherboard. post again if you need help good luck! hope this is helpful.
