You can take the access cover off and follow the wires from the fan to the point where it is plugged in.
You can check the other fan to see where it is plugged in, and the non working one should be plugged in the same kind of plugin.
The power supply has the same power source for both fans, so if one is not working, it may be burned out or stuck.

The cooling fan on my Gateway 506GR has been noisy for several months. Now it "groans" every few minutes, but continues to run.


Have you cleaned all dust from the fan and inside the computer? If not disconnect all cables from the computer and take the tower outside. Remove the side panel and with a can of compressed air or an air compressor blow all dust from all fans, heat sinks, and all other components. Do not touch anything inside the computer without first grounding yourself to the chassis. If this does not solve your problem the fan needs replacing.

Fan Races Computer Won't Start


The fan is drawing too much current from the motherboard causing the power supply to go into protection mode. Try replacing the fan with a new one and see this this does not fix the start up problem. You should check out your power supply and see if it really delivers enough power to power all the devices in your computer. The power supply could have weaken due to overheating and aging. Try checking the voltages with a software device like speedfan or hardware monitor and see if the voltages are intermittant or out of specs. These programs can be downloaded free from their websites. Just google them to find the websites. If they are you should replace the power supply. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Getting hot very much and battery getting over soon


You probably have a failure in the computer cooling system and should take it in to a service center to check the cooling system operation. If you wait too long you may find that you have a processor failure or motherboard damage.Overheating problems are a major cause of laptop failures. They need to have cooling devices attached to them and cooling fans underneath them to protect them from overheating.Hope this helps you with your problem.

Intel D865GVHZ (Gateway Hazelton) motherboard system cooling fan


This fan error message shows up when the CPU fan is not plugged into the CPU FAN plug on the motherboard. The Intel D865GVHZ
motherboard has a total of 4-fan plugs so it is easy to plug the CPU fan into one of the other fan plugs that is not marked CPU FAN on the motherboard.

Most CPU fans come with the heatsink. Try not to buy a fan that comes with a grill over it. That slows the fan down & makes the fan work harder.

Good luck!
