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

My gateway is making a rattling sound at start up which last about 15 minutes, them seems to run quite after that.....any ideas ?


It is most likely a fan that is making the noise. It's possible that one of the fans is going bad and needs to be replaced. But sometimes fans will make noise if there is a lot of dust inside the case. You could try opening the case and using one of those compressed air cans to carefully blow the dust out. You can get them for a few dollars at any office supply store.
If you're comfortable opening up the case and replacing a fan, it's not too hard to do once you figure out which fan is making the noise. If you're not comfortable doing it yourself, take it in to a shop and get them to do it for you. It shouldn't cost much.
Right now, it sounds like maybe the fan is having trouble getting started and then when it gets quiet, it's either because the fan settles down and starts running or maybe because it just stops working after trying for a few minutes. Either way, I'd get it taken care of because you don't want it getting too hot inside the case.

When i open my pc this message displayed and the computer stop the cpu fan is absent or broken


The CPU fan has obviously failed. You should be able to source a replacement from a good computer shop. Worth trying a warranty replacement from Gateway though.

My new gateway laptop fan runs continuously. it


Why do you think it is a problem? It is perfectly normal for laptops to get hot. That is the reason coolpads were invented. If you have a waterbed available, try using the laptop while it is sitting directly on the mattress. The water acts like a giant heat sink and the computer will stay much cooler.

4016 gATEWAY computer wont boot


Plug off your Hard Disk and give a try. If the system boots then, its a prob with HDD. Else, it may be because of the monitor, or the RAM module.

Thank you!

Ijust replaced the cpu fan and now the computer won't boot - it just flashes the gateway logo


make sure that the power reqs for the fan are the same as one you replaced and make sure that the new fan is the same prong (3 or 4). Also make absolutely sure you plugged the new fan power supply inti the CPU fan slot

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
