Actually if your MOBO are working fine as of now no need to update the BIOS version. Updating BIOS version may affect some parts of MOBO so no need to update the BIOS version.

    What fans are always spinning is it the CPU fan, don't worry if that fan are always running it is good for the CPU to prevent overheating. Remember that if the fan is not running CPU become too hot it cause overheat. Some of the CPU fan are clogged by dust and it is not working The CPU are overheat. We thankful that the fan are running.

    Hope it may help you

My (limited) understanding is that unless you are running cool 'n quiet, your fans will run constantly - mine do and are fine...
If you have cool 'n quiet compatible kit, then I would get the latest software, bios and patches from the Asus site:
There is a link here to the standard (not deluxe) software updates:

Once you are there search around for the deluxe version.

Computer get hot and shut down


Clean the fan. The fan is probably getting hot and the computer has an automatic shut off. To help with this issue, update the bios of the computer. Just google your computer type and the newest bios.

don't worry most laptops nowadays run hot. your CPU will shut itself down long before damage occurs. try elevating your laptop to promote air circulation or place it on a cooling mat.

Be careful if you set it on your lap, some people have had minor burns from laptops setting on their laps for prolonged periods.

First thing I'd check is for a BIOS update for your computer under the Acer support pages (acer.com). In some cases, thermal control updates are included in newer version of the BIOS, if it is a manufacturing problem.
Goto http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php and download Hardware Monitor, start the computer and immediately run the hardware monitor app to check how high the temperature on the CPU gets before it shuts down.
Continuing use under this condition may damage your Windows installation because of the sudden shutdown.

Hi:
If you do a little research, you will see others with similar issues. Do you ever have the fan start running when it gets hot? Most likely your fan isn't turning on. Some people have had success with updating the BIOS to the newest version, and others have removed the bottom coverscreen to the cooling fan and kept removing dust from it. but their fan was just running, and clogged, not running.

One word of caution , Updating the BIOS is not for the faint of heart or for the inexperienced computer person, as it can ruin your motherboard if you do it wrong. It is worth doing though, but follow instructions, or have a pro do it for you!

I sent my computer to gateway because it was turning off and they updated the bios now i hear the fan running


Just a suggestion. The reason it was shutting off may have been because it was overheating. The bios update my have made the fan run more often and faster. Faster is louder. This would explain the louder fan. You can go to the Gateway website and find the downloads for your model and you should see the BIOS update that they probably used.
Look at the updates. Most of the updated versions of the drivers and Bios Flashes show a description of what the changes were from the previous version. It may show a nice description of the update or may just give a few basics and not fully describe what the changes were but its worth a peek.

Hope this helps...

Upgraded mem.now mon pc dont shut off fan con to run


Computer doesn’t power down when users shut down
In some cases, Windows XP’s Setup program can misidentify the power management scheme in a computer’s BIOS as Advanced Power Management (APM) instead of Advanced Configuration Power Interface (ACPI). When this happens, users will notice that the computer no longer automatically powers down when they shut down Windows XP. Instead, they’ll see the message It Is Now Safe To Turn Off Your Computer and be forced to manually press the power button to turn off the computer.

You can verify this problem by checking the power management configuration in two places—Device Manager and the Control Panel. To quickly access Device Manager, select Start | Run, type Devmgmt.msc in the Open text box, and click OK. When you see the Device Manager window, locate and open the System Devices item. If Setup identified the system as having an APM-compliant BIOS, it will be listed as a Standard PC in the System Devices tree. (If it were identified as having an ACPI-compliant BIOS, you would see it listed here as a Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System.)

To check the power management configuration in the Control Panel, open the Control Panel from the Start menu. If the system is using Category View, select Performance And Maintenance and then click the Power Options icon. If the system is using Classic View, just click the Power Options icon. If Setup identified the system as having an APM-compliant BIOS, you’ll see an APM tab in the Power Options Properties dialog box. (If the system were identified as having an ACPI-compliant BIOS, you wouldn’t see an APM tab.)

You may be able to fix this problem with a BIOS update. To begin, check with the computer manufacturer’s Web site to see if it’s providing the latest BIOS update. If you’re troubleshooting an off-brand computer, you may be on your own as far as tracking down the BIOS update. Here’s how.

Once you obtain and install the BIOS update according to the manufacturer’s instructions, you must perform what I call a Refresh Installation, in which you reinstall Windows XP on top of an existing Windows XP installation. You must perform this reinstall operation because the power management features are tied to a special power management Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL). During the Refresh Installation procedure, Setup will completely redetect all installed hardware, including the updated BIOS, and rebuild the power management HAL as well as the part of the registry in which information about the installed hardware is stored.
