Question about Computers & Internet
Hi. Thank you for viewing this troubleshoot topic! I really need your help! Please T-T
HP Pavilion a1630n
AVC [Fan box]
^My fan box looks like that. [ABC fan box].
While I was on my computer, I heard a clinkkk! sound. After that, the fan started to whirl and whirl and whirl. After that, the computer just SHUT down.
I opened up the computer, and then I saw a small black piece. Its what the metal long piece held onto! So the metal long piece would latch onto the small black piece (on both sides) to keep the fanbox in place.
I have my PC layed on its side, so the fan box stays in place. If i do that, the computer works. If I have my PC up right, (the fan box isn't held into place) and the comoputer acts funky--then shuts down immediately.
My attempts to fix it?
-I tried to superglue the small black piece back onto the fanbox's "stage". It wouldn't stick.
At the moment, i have it laying on its side (the fan box is in place).
Its a fairly new computer [6months or more, but its around that].
New fanbox & its stage it 'latches' onto i think would be expennnnsive~. T-T
What should i do?
Is it okay if my PC thing lays on its side? its a big awkward but if it dosen't damage the computer then I guess if this is what I have to deal with then yea. OR do i have to buy a new fan box && stage thingy.
Sorry for my weird tech-Vocabulary. I call the AVC thingy FAN BOX (because its shaped like one) and the thing its supposed to stick to a STAGE THINGY. Between the two things, theres this whiteish peach substance. Its not glue. Its not sticky. But its like a creamish thing. Something between those two things work together to make the computer function.
I hate technology when it breaks. ._.
Help please!! T-T
Buy a five dollar mounting bracket at frys.
Happened to me and clean the heatsink fan hopefully this will help others. I just bought another AVC fan hopefully it will fit.

That's your heatsink, and it's very dangerous for the computer to run for long without it... Laying the computer on its side does not harm it, but running it without properly installed cooling aides can be.
I suggest that you contact the manufacturer. Since your computer is less than a year old, hardware issues like this should be covered.. Just don't listen to them when they say reinstalling your OS can fix it, hah hah.
