Question about ASUS A8N-E Motherboard
it all started with my cpu fan giving out an awful noise.then i started getting error messages "cpu fan fail or speed low" inspite of the fan running. i researched abt the problem and found out tht i may have to " clean or oil" the fan.checking the cpu temp was another thing recommended . cleaning the fan proved useless.also, the noise was intermittent and a tap on the side of the cabinet silenced it sometimes. to get a better picture i downloaded asus-probe and found out tht the cpu temp was well within the desired range( 42 c max).i lowered the fan speed in the bios from 1200 to 800 rpm. the error messsages continued for some time. all of a sudden i get error messages "chip fan fail" .i checked that the chip fan isn't running. but it does after i reboot it after a short time. now the frequency of the chip fan failing has increased and also it doesn't start always at reboot. the entire process of chip fan failing and starting is intermittent. the temp ,voltages,fan speed is well within the normal range as per the asus probe. is the problem with cpu fan/ chip fan/ smps(power supply) or plain loose connection somewhere. plz lemme know if anyone figures it out.ty
You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.
Hope that fixed ya...
