I supose the fan works, you then need to enter bios and disable cpu fan monitoring, if the fan doesnt spin connect it to another fan connector or a plain 4pin molex connector / might require a adapter.

Try to get into bios and disable cpu fan fail alarm, keep the temperature alarm on 80 or 70. so it will yell if it gets too hot.

Dell precision T3500 unable to initialize fan controller error


Step 1:
b> WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Every computer comes with its own internal cooling system. Dell workstation desktops are no different. Your computer's cooling system consists of a heat sink and cooling fan. The function of the cooling fan is to regulate the temperature of your computer's processor. If the fan stops working your processor will overheat and cause damage to your motherboard. Fortunately, Dell desktops have a built-in alert system that tells you when your fan stops working.

Shut down your desktop computer. Disconnect the power cable from the computer's back panel. Then disconnect any external devices. Rotate the computer so the back panel is facing you. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) strap to your wrist and its wire clip to the outer casing of the computer. Lay the computer tower on its left side. Press on the side panel release buttons situated on the top and bottom panels. Grasp the side panel and rotate it away from the computer until the internal contents of the computer are accessible. Locate the cooling fan duct near the center of the motherboard. Lift the duct off of the cooling fan so it is in the upright position. Disconnect the fan's power cable from the motherboard. Disengage and remove the retaining clips from each side of the cooling fan assembly. Lift the cooling fan out of the motherboard. Set it aside. Check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490 Use a clean paper towel to wipe the excess thermal grease from the processor's surface. Apply a thin coat of thermal grease to the processor's surface using a cotton swab. This is important; if you skip this step, your processor will fry as soon as you power on your computer. Place the new cooling fan over the processor. Press down on each retaining clip until the cooling fan snaps into place. Connect the fan's cable to the motherboard. Place the air duct back over the cooling fan assembly. Rotate the side access panel downward over the computer's opening. Press down on the side access panel until it snaps into place. Place the computer vertically, and then reconnect all cables and devices to the computer.

Hp desktop keeps crashing


Agreed not a lot of info, but you may not know what is going on, so s'okay.

There are three main reasons for desktop computer failure;

1) The computer is dirty inside.
Over 80 percent of the personal computers in my shop, suffer from this 'ailment'.

What happens?
The Processor overheats, and turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
This is because there is a fail safe feature built-in. Keeps the Processor from burning up.

The hardware components inside your desktop computer, (i.e., Processor, motherboard chipset, Ram Memory, graphics chipset, {Integrated graphics}, or graphics card, etc.), are cooled by AIR.

When dust, dirt, hair, food crumbs, spider webs,you name it; clog the cooling system for the computer, the temperature inside goes up tremendously. Especially for the Processor.

[ I just cleaned out an old Dell desktop computer, for a store. Worst one I have seen in 14 years. Had 3/4 of an Inch of hair, dust, dirt, and junk, on the bottom of the computer case. The computer case fans were so clogged with 'dust bunnies', I could NOT see them. The Processor fan was one dust ball, and the Heatsink underneath looked like a solid block. Couldn't see the fins.

Q-tips, a soft small brush, and THREE cans of compressed air for computers, later, the computer is working fine again ]

Start with this, then if it does not sure the problem, state back in a Comment.

ONE:
Unplug the computer from power.

TWO: FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
(Don't know? State in a Comment)

THREE: Post the computer manufacturer NAME, and Model Number. I'll tell you how to open the computer case.

(It's on the back of the computer case, (Tower), next to the Windows product key, OR up on the side of the computer tower.
For an HP, or Compaq computer it is the Product Number.
It is in the white Service Tag, and is P/N )

Hello
Sounds like you need a new cooling fan.You may be able to save yours with some electrical contact cleaner spray.
Remove fan and spray.
The cpu will heat up quick and shut down everything to protect itself.Im sure once you get a new fan you will be up and running again.
You may consider reapplying new conductive paste to the processor while you have the case open.

I hear big sound from my processor of my colling fan, it happen when i start my computer


Hi,

I understand that the cooling fan on the top of the processor is making a noise when you boot up the computer.

I would suggest that you immediately get a new one installed.

This is a mechanical fault and fans will last their lifetime and require a replacement then.

In case you continue using it, then the processor might get damaged.
So, I suggest that you get the cooling fan replaced at the earliest to avoid any damage to the processor.

If this doesn't work for you or in case you need any further assistance, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
Thank you.

Hi,

You can add hard drive if your system doesnt have enough space for the new programs. If the new programs installs well but is running slow or not starting, then you will have to upgrade your RAM and for better performance, fix one graphics card suitable for *********** board. If you can spend more, Upgrade *********** board and processor.

Thanks

Overheats and freezes


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Buy a can of compressed-air.
Give the computer a "blow-job", because dust inside the computer is working as a layer of insulation, i.e., not allowing your computer's fans to cool itself.

It could be many reasons. But worst one could be CPU fan failure. If your CPU fan is not working properly then your computer wont boot but most imp thing is, it could damage your processor coz of overheating.
Another reason may be faulty ram, motheboard problem, hardware failure etc.
so cant say for sure but make sure ur fan is cooling ur processor.
Hope it helps

Processor fan failurer massage


When my system had a problem, it was the second fan! My board not only had a processor fan but it also had a very small bios fan. If either fan slows down, the system will shut down. Also, check and make sure that you are using the correct jack for your fan. It sounds dumb but most newer boards has multiple jacks for fans. If you are sure that you are using the correct jack and you are using a fan with 3 wires, not 2 (3 wire fans has a ground, positive 5 volts and a sensor wire to tell the board the speed of the fan) then you have a major problem. Your motherboard has a circuit that is designed to prevent the system from running without proper cooling. Even with a new fan, if the circuit is malfunctioning -- YOUR DONE. Unless your bios gives you the option of bypassing this safety feature, you will need to replace the motherboard which is another bag of worms. Even if you buy the same board and install it, most of the time the system will lock up during boot because of some slight difference in the new board. Sorry for the bad news. Just make sure that you have the 25 digit number for your operating system so that you can reinstall Windows. It should be stuck on the computer case. With that you can replace the board, reinstall Windows and re-register with Microsoft. That way you can download the over 90 updates needed with XP (assuming that you are using XP). Good Luck

CPU fan failure


The bearings in the fan or internal mechanism may have burned out. If the fan does not generate a cool enough environment, you run the risk of frying the processor and other motherboard components that are temperture sensitive.


Replace, don't attempt to repair.

Keep me posted.
