I suspect that you used compressed air, and that you cleaned the fans by spinning them with the force of the air stream.

For some reason this is bad for the fans, and they can stop working when you do it.

If nothing is happening when you turn on the computer, then you have a problem with a short or a loose wire/plug but if it's only the fans that wont come on, then you'll need to go to a place like Best Buy or some place that sells computer parts and get replacement fans.

Don't use your computer without fans! If you have another computer, you could also look online and find plenty of relatively inexpensive fans.

Take out your old ones, and match them up for size if you buy locally from the store. Otherwise you'll need to measure them in millimeters to know which one to buy.

A lot of the time they don't say what their size is on the fan, but you might have some that do.

It's not a big deal. I've replaced fans that were working fine simply because I wanted bigger fans to remove more heat after upgrading my computer.

How do I clean my clean living tower fan?


Usually there would be a few screws in the base that need to be taken out and the outer case pulls out. This will expose the fan and filters inside. Hopefully that will allow you to clean the inside. Would not spray any cleaning agents. Just a light vacuum and wipe with clean moist cloth.

I want to clean the dust from my tower and blow canned air, but does the blue plug on cord pull straight out ?


Dear bonnie,
Years ago, on a computer tech help site, I read a posting warning against this unless a last resort? It said that if all was well - leave it be! as moving dust from where it has settled could possibly cause a 'short-circuit' & burn out components. Also do not know which cable is "blue plug on cord"? Make sure power is off at wall. The power plug pulls straight out from computer. Other plugs have obvious screws/screw-posts. If you are going to fiddle around inside your box, best practice is to wear an anti-static wrist band attached to metal screw/frame with power OFF at wall but leads still plugged in - (this will ensure that the computer is earthed & your body static - up to 50,000volts! - will not fry any components). I hope that this helps - kind regards - 'b'ye - Bruce.

My lasko tower fan gets power n wont blow air


The bearings on the motor are dry and need oil. It's really not made to be oiled, but you may be able to take it apart and get some oil to the bearings if you want to mess with it.

Pc wont power up


Is there an on off switch on the back out the computer next to the main power socket? If so move it to the on position.
Check the mains lead and make sure it is firmly inserted in the socket.
When you press the front panel on button and it doosn't boot up and there is no light indicating power, then you have a faulty switch mode power supply.
Remove the switch mode power supply and replace it with a new one with the same wattage or greater wattage.

Cleaning inside the fan


Unplug the unit from the wall for safety. Remove the two screws in the upper hand grip recess (upper back of the unit). The two screws must be completely removed (not just loose and setting in the holes). Once the two screws are out, the back half of the fan cover can be slid downward (some amount of force is needed to unsnap the two halves from each other but be careful since the parts are all plastic and can possibly snap). Once the back is unsnapped from the front, you can lift the back half away from the front half and the inside parts are now accessible. I have found on my fan that it is the top fan shaft / bushing that is causing the squeaking noise that so many have complained about. I have found that periodically lubricating the top shaft/bushing will make the fan sound like new again - for a while. Every 2 - 3 weeks I need to clean (wipe off old lube) and re-apply fresh lube).
