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.

Does not boot up, fans start, internet plugs light, clicks on and off.....seems this is a common problem for these machines, what is the fix?


Instructions
  1. When you press the Power button to start the boot process, the LED lights glow while the computer verifies that there is sufficient electrical power to activate the hardware.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LED lights on the computer do not glow or the LEDs blink briefly and then stop. There is no sound of the fan or hard drive spinning, and the screen remains blank. The computer will not start if there is insufficient battery or AC adapter power.
  2. The BIOS queries various hardware components used for the startup boot process.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow but there is no fan or hard drive sound. The LEDs may glow briefly and then go out.

    Or

    The LED lights blink, stop, and then blink a second or third time, but there is no sound from the computer and the screen remains blank. The sequence of the blinking lights indicates a specific error code.

    Or

    A series of beeping tones is heard. The sequence of beeping tones indicate a specific error code.

    If a hardware component has recently been replaced, or if the PC has been jarred or shaken, there may be a loose connection to the memory chips or hard drive which prevents the computer from starting.
  3. The BIOS loads the basic input (keyboard) and output (advanced LEDs / display screen / boot drives) devices into memory.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, but then the boot process stops and a black screen - with an error message - displays.

    The boot check has detected a communication error or conflict with a hardware component that must be corrected.
  4. The BIOS loads the Windows operating system and starts the services that allow low-level control of all of the background operations.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, the HP or Compaq Logo displays on a black screen, but then the boot process stops and a blue screen - with an error message - displays.

    The boot check has detected a hardware driver error or a software conflict that must be corrected.
  5. Control is transferred to the Windows loader to initiate the display of the advanced settings in the Windows environment.

    The Windows logo displays during this step.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the computer performs all the steps in the boot process, but after the Windows Logo displays, the moving Windows progress bar or the rotating cursor stops moving and the boot process stops.

    An error message may display on a screen with the Windows logo. In some instances, there is no specific error message.

    Or

    A black screen appears and the computer attempts to restart.

    The Windows self-check has detected a software conflict that must be corrected.

Power button blinking red on gateway profile 4...monitor appears to be on, fan is operating, can hear drive starting but computer will not boot up. Checked power to hard drive and ribbon cables, memory,...


1.Check your power supply by using an Analog Volt Meter, you should check if the power supplied by your power supply is stable,

2.Check your ram if it is faulty. try to clean the lids of the ram using an eraser. If still your computer doesnt work, you should find a spare RAM and test if your RAM is working properly.

3.If you dont have any problems with your RAM, you should try unplugging external PCI cards, AGP Cards, on your motherboard and use the internal devices instead, like built in VGA, sound card, Network Interface Card,just to check if there are no faulty devices which stopped your computer from starting.

Hope this will helped you out mate :)

Will not turn on


Try the following:

Check that power supply is plugged in to a live source.

Certain models had an additional power switch on the power supply itself. This would be located to the rear of the computer within 3-4 inches of where the power cord plugs in. Make sure it's on.

Press the power button on the front panel.

Press the space bar. The computer may be in sleep mode..

Gateway desktops usually have a small 'reset' button on the front panel. Press it.

If it still doesn't respond, I'd need to know a little more info before moving forward.
  • Are there any lights lit? (K/B, front panel)
  • Can you hear a fan?
  • Does the monitor turn on?
  • What (if anything) has changed since it worked last?
  • What was the last thing you were working on?
  • What model is it?
  • What steps have you taken so far?

Loud noise


Typical problem in most computers, the fan is experiencing a "burn out." This means there is either something caught in the fan causing it to create noise, or the motor is going bad. there are two fixes for this problem.
1) open you computer's case according to its manual and remove the system cooling fan and give it a thorough cleaning.
2) you may need to replace the cooling fan with its recommended replacement model.

Hope this helps!

Won't boot up, Fans are on non-stop


Open up the pc with power off. After cleaning with a blowing or sucking device, gently press on the connections and plug-in devices. Retry.

If no avail, the power supply or the motherboard may have bit the dust. U can get them repaired or replaced.... or save the HD and buy a another pc and add the old HD as a data disk.

My hp dc 7600, stop to work and now don't power on. When I press the power button the computer start the fan cool and then turn off.


Big chance you've got a broken motherboard...
Maybe your CPU is broken...

Check your motherboard for 'swollen capacitors'.
Instead of flat, it will have a convex top.

You can also have someone who knows a bit more of computers look after it...

Gateway GX7022E won't boot.


Well, it could be any component going bad, in this order: power supply, video card, memory, motherboard. You can try known working video, power and memory if you'd like, but it is probably the motherboard in this particular case. If you look at the capacitors on the mobo, you'll probably find that at least some of them are bulging at the top and/or leaking. the only thing to do if this is the case is to try and replace the bad caps - but this is VERY difficult, even for an expert.
