Gateway 675 fan problem

Sometimes my fans in my Gateway 675 wont start up with the computer bootup... sometimes the fans stop while using the notebook. When this happens it gets too warm and crashes usually requiring a reformat and reinstalling of windows. What could be causing this problem?

Check the BIOS in the laptop. The CPU fan and unit fan is controlled by temp. U can set it for a lower temp. The Bios is accessed when U boot up... F2 usually, There should be a 5 to 15 second screen telling u what to press to get there.

Good luck

After using my Gateway M 675 prr and now it is not working. The screen is black, the fans are working and the lights are on, just have a black. What can I di?


The Gateway 675 are known for video card problems.You can unseat the card and clean it,then replace the thermal grease.The thermal grease on these get runny under heat and causes the video card to loose contact.Try the grease if that doesn't work the video card will need to be replaced.

Gateway MX6447 system fan doesn't come on during normal use; the


On my computer, in Control Panel/Device Manager/System Devices I find five (five!) ACPI Fan devices listed. None of them have any adjustable parameters. However, in regedit I find two settings for each: 1) Slow the processor before increasing fan speed (this is ON), and 2) Increase fan speed before slowing the processor (this is OFF).

So...on my computer I am going to say there is no registry setting to make the fan run all the time...can't say that's also true for yours.

I have to hit the f1 key to continue the bootup process. Then I get a defective fan error message, but the fan is running, becasue I can hear it.


there may be more than one fan-- there also is a setting in the BIOS to disable the fan warning if you are SURE that the fan it is monitoring is working correctly.

Gateway Profile 3se cooling fans don't start every time.


The Internal Fan On the cpu is always on correct? If so the external fans come on when the tower case has a temp higher than 85F. This is perfectly normal

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.

On bootup checks, stops at 02FC Main and second fans failed. Black screen with bootup messages. ?Has the MA7 even got two fans? How to correct.


Sounds like you may have a virus or trojan of some sort. They are hard to get rid of but try downloading avg 8.0 it's free and picks up most trojans and viruses. If you get a black screen with boot message just hit control alt delete together and your pc should bypass this problem and allow you in. If avg doesn't pick up trojan or virus it maybe a software failure but it will usually tell you whats missing and if pc was working fine and just started this it is most likely a virus or trojan

I would first check that all the fans are turning when you first power it up. It may have fan speed sensors on them, and one or more fans aren't coming up to speed. I would check the CPU fan(s), as they are usually smaller, and tend to go bad before the other larger ones.
