Question about Computers & Internet
It used to cut off which i realised it was overheating so i cleaned the cooling fans and it worked. then months later it cut off again i checked the fan i noticed one was only turning every now and then which made it overheat. i swapped the fans around to see if the fault would move across and it seemed ok. i put it all back together and it does not work at all. you press the power button and it goes on and off in seconds, sorry to go on but please help me
Check out your BIOS setting if u can manipulate fan speeds from it then you can solve your problem by playing with the the setting.
Seems that The fan has failed, usually PC's are set by default to shutdown in instance of a fan failure, you have to figure out with fan is bad, also troubleshoot a little more before you deem the fan is faulty. You can do this by maybe changing the fan's powered supply but using a different unused PSU female connector. Pls do not misunderstand, thinking that I'm telling you to replace PSU, just use a different wire to supply it. Again, these are just a few troubleshooting methods, before deeming the fan is bad,
But all in all it just sounds like the fan is bad.
