Fan stopped working


Power supplies are not meant to be fixed. If you have electronics repair experience, crack it open and replace the fan with a new pc cooling fan of the same size and power.

PC get shutdown automatically


It can happen in several cases. Like:1. If your processors cooling fan does not run properly or stops running , your processor gets over heated and will automatically shutdown to prevent damage of your motherboard. In this case check this first, If is runs but not seem so smooth, just clean it- dust can jam the cooling fan.

2.If your heat sink under the cooling fan is not perfectly fit on the processor, cooling fan will not able to cool it and will result your machine shutdown!


3. In case of Bad power supply, it can also happen. Check your power supply.


4.If your machine have defected RAM or became defected, it may happen. In this case you may have blue screen with message before shutdown your machine.


5. If you have operating system of Microsoft Windows, please check your hard drive for virus. Virus can shutdown machine with a common period of time! Damaged OS which occurs often in windows operating system also can force to shutdown machine.
Please check which one is in your case. Please mention problem details like something unfamiliar for further query.

My computer hangs/stop responding expectedly and when i check the processor , it very hot , !!! help me plz ...!!!


Hi,

You can try to disasseble your desktop and check if the processor fan is not working properly. Try to clean accumulated dust and replace it if needed. Also add more fans to decrease temperature inside the system. Do not operate your desktop as possible, it may do further damage to other components of the system.

Hope this helps.

Rh11@gmail.comdoes not fire up green power light on but cooling fans dont run and multi meter does not register any power through


Remove power supply from PC, connect it to AC power, then connect green wire with any black wire.
If it starts - check 12V AC, 5V AC.
If it doesn't - there are no user serviceable parts inside, just replace power supply

My hp d530 is suddenly swithing off


Could be an overheating issue. You can open the case and see if the cooling fan over the CPU is spinning when the PC is operating. If not, you should replace it.

If there is a lot of dust inside, you may want to blow it off with an air compressor, but power off and disconnect the computer first. Also remember to stop the cooling fan from spinning when struck by air from the compressor (you can use a wooden pencil to stop it) to avoid damaging it.

Let me know if this helps, best luck

I havd a Dell Dimension 8200 that sometimes shuts down and power light turns yellow. I can usally open case and plug and on plug to get it to power back up. Recently replaced fans due to fan failure....


Thank for the detail, it really helps...
Most people forget about the power supply. If the power supply overheats, it will shutdown. When shutdown, it will cool off then operate again.

A power supply goes by WATT ratings, the average size power supply is now 450 watts for an average system and should cost around $60.

good luck and don't forget to vote.

The cooling fan does not spin.


If that is the only thing that isn't working then the fan itself might just need to be replaced, if you take the make and model of the pc to any computer repair shop they should be able to get you a replacement fan for not much of a cost. They are really easy to change too,fyi.

Cooling Fans compatible with Toshiba A15 laptop


You can't replace the fan, you have to replace the power supply. In order to find out whih one you need the best thing to do is open your PC and find out the Wattage. It will be marked on the outside of your power supply. Just in case you do not know where the power supply is, if yo see where the vents are on your computer the power supply is there. It has a fan to blow the hot air out of it..

The power light keeps flashing orange


I had my Optiplex GX520 at work shut down abruptly every time I turned it on it in the morning. This would always happen within the first 30 minutes. I would then get the flashing amber light. After starting the PC again, it would stay on all day (over 8 hours) without shutting down again. I found that the power supply was over-heating.

Two things need to be done. First, in order to get the amber light to stop flashing, un-plug the computer from the wall for 30 seconds then plug it back in. OR hold down the power button for 10 seconds or so. The light should stop flashing. Then press the power button again and the PC should start.

But why did it abruptly shut down in the first place? The power supply has a fan-speed-control circuit in it to keep it running slow and quiet when the power supply is cool. It gives the power supply lower voltage when the power supply is cold and higher voltage as the power supply gets warmer. This circuit either is not working correctly or the fan getting sticky over the years and needing more voltage to get it moving when it is cold. I found that the fan was not starting at all and causing the power supply to over-heat.


To keep the fan moving at full speed, I cut the wire to it and wired it to the +12v output directly. Not the fan goes at full speed all the time. And yes, it is nosier. But at work it doesn’t matter.

The best solution would be to just get another power supply from Dell if possible. Or buy a +12v, 70mm fan from Digi-Key and replace the original.

Most likely a power supply problem. Your power supply is probably going bad or not powerful enough for your system. Swap it out for a known working power supply with enough power for your system. Also make sure there is not excessive dust and dirt on the fans.
