This is not a PC problem
Symptom
Heating comes on, but sometimes it
gets too hot, sometimes too cold.
Neutral not connected
Cure
Check wiring in room thermostat. Look for a
connection to the Neutral terminal (N 2 on
the Honeywell T6060, T6160, and T6360).
Make sure that it is connected (check
continuity).
If there is no neutral available, replace with a
two-wire thermostat, e.g., CT200, CM61 or
CM67. These will also offer extra energy
savings, (Without a neutral connection, the anticipator within the room thermostat does not work,
so the temperature control reduces from ± ½ºC to ±3ºC. People can feel a six degree
temperature swing. Then, if they try to adjust the room thermostat to overcome the
problem, the temperature swings become even worse.)

Fan Cycles on and Off


Hi Justin,
The fan in your PC is operated by a thermostat. When it detects a rising temperature, it powers up the fan to blow cool air in - and hot air out. A PC that is overheated will produce unexpected results and can fail permanently.
When your PC is doing nothing - or idling, very little heat is generated by the processor, video card, network interface, etc. so fan forced cooling my not be needed. When you start to do things with it - then things begin to heat up. the processor, video, network, memory, USB, sound card, etc. all do work and generate heat that needs to be removed from the case.
You should make sure that all ventilation holes, slots, etc. are free and open - if any are blocked, it will cause the fan to turn on more often and run longer. The fan will run more often & longer when the room the PC is in - is 80 degrees than when the room is 65 degrees. Make sure the PC isn't boxed in a cubby that prevents air flow. Vacuum / blow out the insides of the PC & power supply regularly - dust build up insulates parts keeping them warm (disconnect / unplug before attempting).
Preventing the fan from doing it's job will shorten the life of the PC.
I hope this helps and good luck!

I'm having problems with my compaq sr5000 desktop.


Is there any message that appears when you turn the computer on? Does anything post to the monitor during the boot process? Normally if the Video Card goes bad and the monitor works you will get a No Signal message on the Monitor. So you are so sure the monitor works, huh?

Since you went inside the computer check and make sure you pushed the Video Card (where the monitor plugs into the back of the computer) into the slot all the way.

Maybe your Power Supply is not working. When you press the power button do the fans start running and you hear the disk drive spinning? Just because you see a light at the the power button or on the motherboard does not mean the Power Supply is working correctly. I just changed one that did that.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.You didn't by chance remove the Heat Sink and CPU while you were removing the fan did you? If you did, you probably need to apply a fresh coat of Thermal Past between the Heat Sink and CPU.

My Gateway ZX4300 screen is not working. The screen does not turn on at all but the fan is working and the hard drive is as well.


gateway zx4300 black screen fix

i think i might have found a fix, if you know how to fix the xbox with the fan trick this one will sound close to the same.

if when you turn the computer an you get nothing not one bit of color or brightness from the screen this is your fix, well it worked for me.

i am not responsible for any more damage you might encounter, this does require disassembly


1. take the computer apart until you have the fan and heat sink in front of you.


2. remove fan and heat sink from mother board.


3. (at own risk) with computer open an heat sink off plug in the power cord and turn the computer on.


4. leave computer on for 8 to 10 mins.


5. turn computer off after 10 mins remove power cord and re install heat sink and fan.


6. hold pwr button down for 15 sec.


7. plug computer back in and you should now have your screen back.


this method worked for me i am using the computer with the bad screen to type this up an has been restarted a couple times an is still working fine! hope this works for you!!

Acer aspire m1202. turns on but no bio view just runs the fans and there isnt any sort of beep code either. just runs and runs nothing happens. oh and you cant turn it off via power button you gotta unplug...


t f doesn't open

* remove the fan/blower n the processor and check if there's still a heat sink paste on it. (most part of center metal attach),then clean the sorroundings of the process...this s due to an overheat that's why the blower or fan might sometimes stuck up at the pc stop working.

* detach each memory and try to clean the slots and put it back properly.

* check the power supply,might getting open voltage and needs replacement.



hope t helps...
