Question about Global Win K7 T.Bird Socket 462 Cooling Fan (WDK76) CPU Cooling Kit, Cooling Fan

1 Answer

CPU fan does not stay on

Computer will not boot up. CPU fan comes on for a few seconds than off. The inside of the computer was a dust bowl. The heat sink was packed with dust. I've cleaned it out where at least the fan comes on for a few seconds. The power pack fan does not come on either and I know it to be good. It is a AMD Athlon socket 462 processor. Thanks Glenn

    Thanks. I looked at the processor (CPU) and it had a brown spot as big as a quarter. I think it got fried. I did know the Power Supply was good, because I took it out of a running unit. Thanks again, glennvs

Sounds like either the PSU or a part (CPU) on the motherboard overheated and fried.
How do you know that the PSU is good? Did you take it out and try it in another computer? If not I would try a new power supply first.

Computer comes on and then shuts within a couple of seconds


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

My NB temperature over heats really easy. What can I do to fix this?


Your computer is overheating. Three causes of overheating are:
1) Dust - Dust inside the computer, dust clogging the fans, dust clogging the vents, dust around the cpu and heat sink. Remedy - Open the case and blow out the dust with a can of compressed air.

2). A fan is not working. Remedy Replace the fan. There are two so find out which one is not working. One is inside the Power Supply where the power cord plugs in and the other one sits on top of the CPU and Heat Sink on the motherboard.

3) The Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Remove the Fan, CPU and Heat Sink and apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste.

My computer keeps shutting down after a few minutes. I have replaced the powersupply as well as the cpu fan. I am being told now that it is the system/motherboard. Is that an accurate answer?


When the CPUoverheats it goes into thermal shutdown and will not boot up again until theCPU has cooled down.
The heat sink may be clogged with dust, which causes the CPU to overheat byreducing air circulation through the heat sink.When you replaced the CPU fan, did you put new thermal heatsink paste on the CPU/heatsink? If not then the CPU can overhest. Your computer fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust.

Fan comes on frequently on hp computer. dust etc


If this is a desktop computer, did you clean out all the dust inside the computer? You can buy cans of compressed air at places like Staples. Make sure you blow the dust out of the power supply and cpu heat sink.

I've had a bad dust problem and my cpu fan began making a loud whirring noise and finally the computer shut down altogether. Took the cover off totally cleaned out the dust and turned the power back on....


If the computer detects overheating or fan failure it will shut down automatically. If you replace the fan you should be fine. Remove your old fan and try to get one that connects the same way, some of them connect directly to the heat sink, others to the motherboard.

Start up


If the Computer In question is a PC Desktop computer a few issues. First power supply may be malfunctioning. Second check the the CPU fan inside computer is running and not full of dust when you turn it on. If it's dusty, get vacuum cleaner and clean it. Fans need to be able to work without overheating because CPU runs hot.
Thirdly try to take out battery and restart computer. If starts up replace with new battery.

In Case it's a laptop. Take out battery and try to run using power supply and if turns on place battery back in. If battery isn't charging you will need a new battery. Let me know how you go!
