Good day sir hi, check to see if the power supply, and processor fan is working properly, does it blow hot air. Check your processor fan, make sure that the fan is connected to the proper power port. There are two types of port, the 3 terminal port, without fan temperature monitor and the 4 terminal port with temperature monitor, check if your processor fan is compatible with the 4 terminal port.
You can also disable the temperature fan thing that monitors your system fan, just go to the BIOS setup, find the hardware monitor and set you fan to disable monitor. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: the system fan is missing or is not working your

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the power-cord.
Open the side-panel, and take a look.
There should be one fan on top of the CPU (Central Processing Unit) -- the "CPU fan".
There should be one more fan,
probably screwed to the inside of the back panel.
Check that the 3 wires leading from the fan are connected somewhere on the motherboard, i.e., not hanging loosely.
Two of the wires bring electricity to the fan,
and the third wire reports the speed of the fan.
By hand, try to "spin" the fan-blades -- if it does not spin freely, your fan has "seized", and needs to be replaced, because the "speed" of the fan has been reported as 'zero'.

SOURCE: the system fan is missing

If you're referring to the fan on the CPU , and it does not run when you turn on the computer , yes replace it. The system is protecting the CPU from overheating . If you're not sure if the fan is bad , remove the computer access cover to the main board , then , turn the computer on and see if the CPU fan starts to spin. If you notice the fan blades vibrating or jiggling but not spinning , then replace the fan motor assembly .

System fans not functioning system halts


fairly straight-forward....heat is a killer. PC's built in the past 15+years will cut-off if they get too hot to try and avoid permanent damage.

You will need to replace the fan(s) that are no longer working.

Alert! Chipset Heatsink not detected. System halted! is the alert that comes up when I turn my computer. What can I do?


Hi scotteg71121...

The alert is caused by a loose chipset heat sink.
Dell has a self test that prevents further damage by halting the system and displaying the message Alert! Chipset heat sink not detected. System Halted.
The solder joint seems to fail from constant tension and heat.
If you find the missing clip inside the computer you can solder it back in place and reattach the chipset heat sink wire hook.
If you can't find the clip you can replace it by bending a thin piece of wire in a half circle.
You can see a picture of where the clip goes on your computer motherboard by following the link below.

The system fan is missing or not working . your system has been halted in order to avoid any damage .... i replace the fan then same problem comes for me i cant enter into the bios plz...


To enter into the bios, you just have to look at the black screen when you turn the computer on.
It should say Press F8 , F10 , F11, F12 to enter bios depending on the computer.
You have to press that button before the computer boot and window logo comes up.
So as soon you see the black screen press that button or start tapping that button.

(1)cpu fan error (2)chassis intruded (3)fatal error.....system halted


The reason for this error is Overheat! Please replace the CPU Fan with a new one and add additional Fan for the CPU Cabinet in order to cool the CPU. Then, reset the BIOS to default value by pressing the F2 Key or Delete Key at the Startup and select Load Optmized Defaults or Load Fail Safe Defaults option. This should resolve the issue.

Beep sound when swith on


good day,

a beep from your cpu system means that there is an error. and since there is a "cpu overheat" error, it could mean that your cpu cooling system (or its fan) is not working.

the shutdown is a defense mechanism of your cpu in order for your cpu not to self distract.

have the cooling system replaced as soon as possible to avoid further damage.

i hope this will help

did the cpu cooler fall of? did a fan stop working? perhaps you should open it and have a look- obviously something is overheating. We need more information than this.

Emachine t3882 will not boot


there is a big possibility that your System fan is damaged or worst is that it's your CPU fan that is not working properly. If you can still enter the bios by pressing F2, try to check your settings and disable fan control for the system fan. If the problem persist then you need to replace the CPU Fan.

Hope this helps.
Please vote if it does. Thanks!
