Just go to and enter in the search field which should have already inserted, then hit the go button, and you should be able to access myspace, but if not, there are options underneath where you enter the website address, just try messing with the buttons to see if it makes any differance.

The video CPU fan is not working. How do I replce it?

Yes it can be replaced or you might want to just remove the fan and have the heatsink exposed but add extra case fans for better airflow.

I need to take apart an inspiron one19 to replace the fan

Are you replacing the system fan, or the CPU heasink fan. The first is simple, the second, is less simple, but not too hard.

Unscrew the screws in the back of your case (most have 4-6) Depending on your case, you may only have to pull the screws on the left side (as you look at the PC). Remove the exterior case.

The system fan will be held in place on the back of your PC by 4 smaller screws. Unscrew em, and disconnect it from the power supply. Install the new fan in the opposite order, and call it a day!

If you're replacing the heatsink fan, you may have to get more detailed instructions on the exact fan/heatsink model. Some are screwed in, some are clipped, ect. Just remember: if you do pull the heatsink fan, DO NOT touch the chip, and before you put a new one back on, DO use thermal grease. Nothing more disappointing that replacing it twice because you forgot this step. Good luck.

Toshiba Satellite 1005-S157 shuts down periodically by itself. Replaced fan/heatsink. Still shuts off.

you need to check a few things... when the fan/heatsink assembly were replaced, did you make sure that the thermal pads on the CPU and GPU are NEW/Good.... Make sure that the Heatsink GPU pad Firmly sits in the chip....

You can test the thermal controller by using a hair dryer or heat gun.... Point it onto the heatsink pipes and see if your fan spins when the pipes get hot, then remove and see if the fans slow after a minute...

You might have faulty RAM or Misseated RAM... Pull The RAM chips and reseat them...
Also Make Sure Your CPU Is Locked Down....

Periodic Shut Downs Can Be Caused By Quite A Few Different Things...

Typically it's due to Thermal Damage
Though Failing RAM or A Failing Hard Drive, Overheated Video/GPU Chip, Or Even Failing CPU can as Well Cause This Issue...

I cannot remove the fan to replace the cpu chip

Sounds like the processor is getting an overheating code and shutting the system down or the processor is cooked and can no longer function. If you are trying to get an intel cooling fan off an intel chip, there should be four posts holding the fan in place, these posts turn 90 degrees and then when all four are turned , pull the fan off the mount. If yours does not have the four post mount, then it may have clips on either side of the heatsink, these should just be pried away from the mount and the heatsink will be free. If the heatsink is stuck to the processor, you will need a flat plastic pry tool to wedge under the lip of the proc and heatsink to separate them.

Gateway laptop ml3108b no screen coming on

this is a common fault with this laptop, the only way to repair this is to strip the laptop, remove the mother board, heatsink and fan under the heatsink you will see the nvidia chip this needs to be heated to 480C for about 5 mins only heat the nvidea chip nothing else! paste chips and replace heatsink fan etc laptop should now be fixed, remember to clean fan whilst it is out as a clogged fan probably caused the fault in the first place

Chip Set Fan Replacement

Try doing this. If you can, Un plug your computer, then remove the fan from the Heatsink. Using water and Dishwashing Liquid soad mix in a container. Soak the fan in the solution for 1 hour. Then rinse it using running water. Then sun dry it for 3 hours. Then re-affix it to your Heatsink! Hope this helps.

Hi, have you tried removing the CPU and using a Air Jet Spray can to clean all contact pins and pin holes? The problem sounds like a loose chip. So also check all on board chips are seated, including RAM chips. Air spray can be bought from most Computer stores. Goodluck mistyman
