Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

The cooling fan for the interior of the cpu case froze up and now the computer will not boot up. I replaced the fan but the computer will still not boot. I can see the lights on the front of the unit come on, but the monitor says "no signal", the CD drive door will not open and there are no lights on the keyboard. Could it be the power supply or the mother board.?

It's the power supply, the cd drive door will open in all cases if it has power - 12 volts to be more precise. Simple test: take the cd unit and the power supply out of the case of the pc, connect them  and start the PSU (connect the green wire to a black one) - if the door opens now it means that there's a big short on the motherboard, if not the PSU is fried.

How do I remove and replace a CPU cooling fan on my Dell Dimension 2400


Make sure u can open the casing well to expose the interior parts without causing any damage. Then by close look at the processor area , that is where the heat sink is located. Normally the dell dimension 2400 has a green channel shaped structure that acts as a passage for the air that enters in and out for cooling the heat sink. It has a locking parts that slides into the casing back by slight pressing to the back of the casing just behind the processor area, be so observant to notice the locking parts. then the fan is just fixed behind that green " channel like" and its fixed on the rear side of the casing, 25275582-o0cuhlgwrl13okm3u3q5444d-5-0.jpg

My computer keeps shutting down after a few minutes. I have replaced the powersupply as well as the cpu fan. I am being told now that it is the system/motherboard. Is that an accurate answer?


When the CPUoverheats it goes into thermal shutdown and will not boot up again until theCPU has cooled down.
The heat sink may be clogged with dust, which causes the CPU to overheat byreducing air circulation through the heat sink.When you replaced the CPU fan, did you put new thermal heatsink paste on the CPU/heatsink? If not then the CPU can overhest. Your computer fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust.

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.

My fan is not running


Which fan is not running? Case fan, CPU fan, PSU fan? CPU fans will cause the computer to shutdown automatically usually with in a few seconds of boot. If it isn't running at all, simply replace it. They are measured in milometers 40, 60 , 80, 90, 120 and some 200mm form factors. Just replace with the same size fan size and you should be up and running again.

Why does my fan seem to be cycling at all times which is slowing down the computer big time


your fan has nothing to do with your computer slowing down.
your fan goes on when a threshold is reach in the cpu temperature or another component's temperature being cooled. the question is what's is causing your cpu or your chipset to work harder than usual causing your system to seem to be sluggish??

the simple answer is malware and need for a clean up and tune up

I suggest you do the following:

1. get an air can, open the case and without touching anything and watching for ESD, dust off your system free.

2. close the case and turn your computer on

3. update your antivirus and run deep scans

4. get all critical updates for your system from windows update

5. download, spybot search and destroy, malwarebytes, superantispyware, and a square free edition, update them and run deep scans.

6. defrag your hard drive

7. to improve perforamance make sure you update or upgrade memory

good luck!

Fan Noise on Dell Dimension 8100


All computer fans have a general design.  The name in front of "fan" really refers to the designation.  You'll see case fan, processor fan, CPU fan, cooling fan, etc.  In the case of CPU/Processor fan, some are sold with heatsinks (the metal block sitting on top of your CPU).

The first thing you want to do is make sure the fan is clean.  Chances are dust buildup is causing the excess noise.

If that's not the case and you're looking to replace the fan, then you first need to find out the size of the fan. General sizes(diameter X width in mm) are listed on this page:

http://www.svc.com/case-fans.html

Generally, you're looking for something that will match the size of what you're replacing & push enough air at a reasonable noise level to cool the heatsink/CPU.  You want to stay in the area of 30dBA max for noise.  You also want to see if it has a 3-pin or 4-pin connection.

For example, if you have an 80mm fan, I would suggest something like this:

http://www.svc.com/saf-b82-19.html

It's pretty quiet with good airflow.  Also, it has a 3-pin connection, but includes an adapter for a 4-pin connection.

FAN INSTALLaTION


you can put the fan anywhere that it fits.  You can never add too many.  I have two added fans in mine. I put one in the front and one on the back (inside) where there are vent holes.  Have the fans blowing in the same direction, towards the rear.  Make sure the fans don't rub on any boards. 

 

Your computer has one fan in the power supply and/or a small one on the cpu.  You may not need more than that.

Your CPU may have a problem


Have you removed all memory, other cards and unhooked all other drives to see if a short exists there? With a 300W PS some other component may be pulling too much that the CPU can't start so it tells you the problem is with the CPU or The CPU its refering to is on the video card? Good Luck, Tim
