    is anything on the back of this motherboard supposed to touch? could i clip some of the leads on the back if they are too long? there is a big heat sink under the cpu can that touch?? i know it has to be a short somewhere on this board i just not sure where to check.

    Thanks

On the top of the screw to prevent the metal screw to ground in the motherboard. Make it sure that the screw only grounded to the casing. Check also some metal in the back of the casing maybe it also the cause of the motherboard grounded.

    It's ok. to touch the big heat sink of the processor. But don't touch some parts in the motherboard to avoid the electric discharge from your body to the motherboard. It's ok also to clip some long tip on the back of motherboard but avoid to scratch the board to avoid damage the connection of the board.

Power button turns system on for about 10 sec then cuts off


One reason is.. CPU got over heat. Remove aluminum heat sync over the processor, detach the CPU carefully and clean the top surface, clean also the fan and the bottom of the aluminum heat sync...apply another silicon compound to the top of CPU. turn them back properly and test if there has good results.

Levono 3000 n100 Notebook shuts down all the time



1. Pull out the battery.
2. Open the panel on the bottom that has the fan and remove the fan and heat sink. 3. Clean the top of cpu, 4. Put some thermal paste on the cpu
5. Put it all back together. 6. Safely dispose of the battery, If you plug the battery back in you will have to go through the whole process again 7. Run off ac adapter.
8. Buy a new battery.

My p4 system getting hot


see do one thing check the cpu fan whether it is working properly and is not producing any noise if it is then probably you need to replace your cpu fan with a new one also makke sure that your power supply fan and chasis fan is working as excess heat gets generated in the system they remove it
to change the cpu fan 1.see it will depend on what kind of cpu socket you have pin or pinless for pin-open the plastic clamp on the fan for pinless -unscrew the heatsink
2.remove the heatsink and replace it it will be much better if you replace the full heat sink with a new one .also don't forget to put thermal grease compound for effivient heat transfer in between the cpu and the heat sink contact generally these days heat sinks come with pre-applied thermal componds but still it is recomended to apply it firmly over the cpu before installing the heat sink on it
3.if you wish to install the old heatsink by just replacing the top fan then replace the fan and rub the bottom of the heat sink with a sand paper to make it even and free from dust and oxide apply thermal compond and install it on the processor .plug bak the cpu fan header cable . start your system it will stop overheating..

Socket 478 3 GHz Intel CPU overheating


Simply open/unlock the clips and pull the heatsink off. Then you will need to remove the termal compound from both on top of the CPU and from the bottom of the heatsink. Papertowel + rubbing alcohol works well. Then you will need to re-apply thermal compound before reseating the heatsink/fan.

Top Agitator is not moving


This washer has a set of cheap plastic dogs that grab the inside wall of the upper agitator to move the clothes downward and help them get a better cleaning. The older style These dogs will wear out. To test whether or not these are bad just grab the agitator while in wash mode. The dogs should advance the top portion easily. If not then they are worn out. To replace them you must remove the agitator and sit it on the floor. Hold the base down with your feet and yank the top upwards. After seperating the 2 pieces you simply install the new dogs and line up the bottom with the top being careful not to break the little tabs on the bottom agitator that hold the top in place. The newer style you simply pop the cover of the agitator and use a 3/4 drive extention to unscrew the upper agitator. replace the dogs and put the top back on. Nothing could be easier.

Add a processor.


need to also unscrew screen and then take of key board then remove hard drive then remove caseing on top make sure all screws are removed the top and bottom of caseing and you should see your cpu it looks like a long coppery pice with fan connection then remove three or four screws and threr you have it
( make sure when reconnecting cpu you add some cpu paste for connection) put all back in and it should work good luck and take it slow ! put your little screws ina samll bowl or contaner so you don't loose them ok if you have trouble get back with me ok lala linda

CPU fan stops, computer shuts down


You must have the CPU fan plugged into the CPU fan power connector or the system can not monitor the fans speed. Your PC will shut down & give you that message. (The fan must be connected to the correct power plug).
If when you did replace the CPU's fan & had to remove the heat sink, which is where the fan screws into & did not clean the old thermal grease off the CPU & heatsink & replace with new thermal grease than your CPU will still overheat. If you add thermal grease over top of old thermal grease your CPU will over heat.
This is all a balancing act. If any one is not correct your system will shut down. (This is better than killing the CPU).
To remove old thermal grease use a clean cloth damped with house hold alcohol & use the same on the bottom of the heatsink. Please allow plenty of time for the alcohol to dry.

Good Luck! Take your time.

My pc always hang...


If removing the black powder was damaging to the processor then your system wouldn't start at all.

If I am interpreting this correctly, your PC is only hanging when you restart. It sounds like what you did was pull the heatsink and fan off of the processor and you wiped away that black powder/smudge junk that OEM vendors such as HP use as thermal material between the heat sink and processor.

Some systems do that. It's to be expected. It COULD be caused by a temperature sensor detecting higher temps, though. (Although that's not likely if it's still starting when you shut it down completely and then start it back up.)


The first thing you want to do is re-seat the CPU in it's socket. I don't know what kind of CPU you have so I don't know what kind of socket it is. Be careful in doing so and if you don't know how to open and close the socket then do a little research online for some instructions; or come back here and tell me what kind of CPU you have.

After re-seating the CPU correctly, you want to be sure to clean the die of the CPU with some kind of solvent (such as alcohol) to get rid of any grease or random chemical build-ups. If there is still sticky residue on the CPU from the thermal material, you can normally get rid of that using a bit of WD-40 on a cloth. (DO NOT APPLY ANY CHEMICALS DIRECTLY TO THE DIE OF THE CPU. PUT IT ON A CLOTH FIRST.) If you use WD-40 to clean the CPU die, use alcohol to clean up the WD-40 afterwards.

Do the same to the bottom of the heatsink. Apply WD-40 directly to the bottom of the heatsink if you like. It tends to eat away all of the sticky junk well enough that you can just scrap it off. Clean the surface with alcohol afterwards.

Get yourself some thermal paste from either Radio Shack or an online store. (Radio Shack is currently selling Arctic Silver thermal paste. Good stuff.) Apply just a SMALL DAB of it to the die of the processor and spread it around until you have a nice, thin and even layer of it. (You don't need a ton of it on there.)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OPTIONAL STEP FOR BETTER RESULTS:
If the heatsink is rough on the bottom of it, you can buy sandpaper and sand the bottom of it flat and smooth on top of a flat, glass panel. Make sure to give it a good, smooth finish with a fine sandpaper. This will give it a good, flat surface to make contact with the CPU and will help thermal transfer a great deal. Clean the heatsink and apply it to the top of the CPU carefully.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MAKE SURE THAT THE HEATSINK IS NOT FACING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN YOU PLACE THE HEATSINK ON THE CPU AGAIN. If you do, it may actually sit on the socket that the CPU is in rather than on top of the CPU itself. If you turn it on like that, you may burn the processor.

Lock the heatsink down onto the processor as normal.

That junk that OEM vendors put on CPU's should be banned. It's better than nothing...but not by much. They tend to use junk heatsinks and even worse thermal transfer material.

I doubt you damaged your CPU by taking off a little bit of the thermal material like that. However I'm not saying that it's not possible, either. It most likely just got a little bit hot afterwards if anything.

At the very least, clean the surface of the heatsink and the CPU and put some thermal paste there between them. Things should run fine after that. But if your system continues to hang on a restart, then I wouldn't panic. Mine does that sometimes. No big deal. I just shut it down instead of restarting it and turn it back on.

Either way... If you follow these instructions and have a better cooling situation, you're going to experience a bit more stability and possibly better performance with your system.

Let me know how it goes.
