The fan could simply be clogged and is held stil, or it needs to be lubricated, remove the fan, on the rear there will be a sticker covering a small hole, carefully peel back sticker, dont take it off, it stops dust geting in there, under that sticker will be the bearings, spray a small amount of a general lubricant or oil in there, and turn it with your hand until it is free and easy, mount it back on heatsink and it should work, failing that try a new fan

What kind of cpu cooling fan can I use in a Acer America ASE380-UD420A desktop computer?


Cooling fan to CPU are come along with the CPU. You can use any other fan, having speed regulator pin, ie, the connector wire to it will have three conductors. Keep a close look at the size and seating screws to its body to the heat-sink of the CPU.

Need A processor fan motor for mo. gm5420


Hi ome, I looked up some specs and found a pdf file that has photos of the cpu fan. It looks to be a standard fan that you should be able to buy at Radio Shack. Remove the fan and take it with you to Radio Shack and they will be able to match it up. Here is the link to the pdf file on your GM5420: Alternatively if you want on buy one on line, the Core2 Duo has a LGA 775 socket type and you can find fans at the link below: Hope this helps

Got a "Thermal Event" message now computer wont staqrt


Your cpu is overheating, because of dust buildup in the fan area. You need to blow it out with compressed air ($4 at Walmart). If that doesn't help, then the cpu fan may need to be replaced. Good luck, hope this helps.

Gateway MT6451 Does not turn on


Probably the mainboard or flaky power supply.

I'd start by replacing the power supply. Buy one you can use in a new machine, though... or "borrow" one from another machine.

I have a gateway profile 3 the cpu fan wont come on it gives warning fan absent or broken and wont to go no farther.


First make sure that the CPU fan is properly connected to the motherboard. There is a connector on the motherboard that is usually labeled CPU_FAN.

If the fan is properly connected, but isn't working, a replacement can be purchased for a reasonable price. Check with Gateway or your local computer supply shop and they will be able to help you find the right fan assembly for your CPU.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Most CPU fans come with the heatsink. Try not to buy a fan that comes with a grill over it. That slows the fan down & makes the fan work harder.

Good luck!

CPU Fan Error - Averatec 3200


First, download PC Wizard 2008 so you can check the fan speeds and temp of your CPU (and every other component of your PC if need be) and see if it's operating properly. You can find it here:

If it's malfunctioning, you'll need to replace it.
