Urgent: AVC Fan Problem!, Fan[box]'s small black piece thing fell out (broke off actually) & so now avc fan hangs loose [computer dosen't work when it hangs looose].

Hi. Thank you for viewing this troubleshoot topic! I really need your help! Please T-T
Computer Type
Windows XP
HP Pavilion a1630n
AVC [Fan box]

The Problem

^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).

Any Solutions?
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

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.

What is an avc system

Advanced Video Coding: a type of standard for the compression of digital video. AVC helps to set the standard syntax for video formats such as Blu-Ray, mobile TV and teleconferencing.

In terms of its origin, AVC was developed jointly by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU-T) and the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG), which is a project of the ISO/IEC and familiar to many users because of popular and accessible MPEG file formats, like .mpg.

Experts point out that AVC is a prominent alternative to an MP4 format. When comparing AVC to MP4, it's important to consider that AVC has a bigger compression ratio and longer encoding than MP4, and that more central processing power is needed. However, experts also point out that the storage efficiency of AVC is greater than those of some previous MPEG formats.

The actual methodology used to encode and decode video with AVC involves three distinct phases labeled "predict", "transform" and "encode." The mechanics of AVC break video down into a kind of machine language that can be easily stored and accessed by a range of technologies.

I would like to know details of AVC BAKA9318B4H Blower. especially, maximum air volume...

AVC BAKA9318B4H Blower Fan, DC24V 0.45A, Ball Bearing, 2-Wire
I can't find any details for that exact model except those above, but on this
webpage from the AVC website, there is a spec for a fan very similar to that you list BAKA9318-24H This is a 93mm diameter 18mm thick blower operating at 24V, like the one you refer to. The H signifies that is the highest airflow model of that type . Your fan also has this designation. I suspect that AVC spec is actually a more general one that includes other bearing types (-24H), while the -B4H indicates that it is specifically a ball bearing blower. The max air flow is 18.3 cu ft per min at zero back pressure and the pressure developed at zero airflow is equivalent to 35.3 mm of water (1 atm is equivalent to about 10m = 10,000,000 mm of water). There is noise figure quoted as well.

Needwiring diagram for a avc fan da12025b12l

I have two articles on this, neither of which correspond to what I said in another answer.
Dell use or used to use a non standard pin out (so it will depend was made by AVC especially for Dells)
In the standard pin out the black wire is 0V, the next often yellow is +V (12V for your fan) the third one is speed sense, and the final one is speed control (you search the internet under 4-pin fan pin-out to be more confident.)
Two article are (section 4.1.6)
and the picture drom the second article I reproduce (without permission).
To be certain consult your m/b manual which should all the pin assignmens on your m/b, or you can try to measure the voltage between 0V and the second pin to verify that it is +12V in your case (it may be lower or as high as 13.2V)

Display powers of with power up of AVC

This is the problem with my LC-37HV4U. I plug in the AVC and the tv/monitor and I get both red power lights (not blinking) but no green lights, sound, or picture. I mean the tv screen stays black! It seems like their is no communication between the AVC and the monitor. I thought at least the screen would light up when the power light came on and being it has it's own power source. This tv is driving me nuts!! Can anyone please help?? Thank you.
