Processor fan failurer massage

I have got a massage stated as "warning- processor fan failure detected" at startup. i have checked and found that there was a failure in the fan.so i have replaced it.
the fan is working(i can see it is spinning).but i still get the massage.and i cannot access to bios also.because the massage appear after it check the helth and it say helth is ok.by using the normal bios entry is not working(by pressing delete)is there any other way to fix it?
i have checked the fan with another comuter and it is working fine.
thanks.

When my system had a problem, it was the second fan! My board not only had a processor fan but it also had a very small bios fan. If either fan slows down, the system will shut down. Also, check and make sure that you are using the correct jack for your fan. It sounds dumb but most newer boards has multiple jacks for fans. If you are sure that you are using the correct jack and you are using a fan with 3 wires, not 2 (3 wire fans has a ground, positive 5 volts and a sensor wire to tell the board the speed of the fan) then you have a major problem. Your motherboard has a circuit that is designed to prevent the system from running without proper cooling. Even with a new fan, if the circuit is malfunctioning -- YOUR DONE. Unless your bios gives you the option of bypassing this safety feature, you will need to replace the motherboard which is another bag of worms. Even if you buy the same board and install it, most of the time the system will lock up during boot because of some slight difference in the new board. Sorry for the bad news. Just make sure that you have the 25 digit number for your operating system so that you can reinstall Windows. It should be stuck on the computer case. With that you can replace the board, reinstall Windows and re-register with Microsoft. That way you can download the over 90 updates needed with XP (assuming that you are using XP). Good Luck

Processor overtemp


Check the heat sink / fan ASAP. The tempature is extremely high and may cause a critical hardware failure. You may even need to replace the CPU fan.

CPU Over Temperature Error


Hello
This error mostly comes with the failure of processor fan, overheating of processor shuts down the system due to processor's protection. You need to check the fans and replacement is recommended.

Hello, after installing processor, memory module and grahics card, the MB AOpen AK77-333 makes a couple of CPU fan revolutions after it is powered-on and then stops. Thank you for the reply,


That old puppy may have bad Electrolytic Capacitors.

(Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor)

Specifically the ones in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit, and more specific the ones used for the voltage regulation to the Processor.

(AOpen AK77-333 details,

http://active-hardware.com/english/reviews/mainboard/ak77-333.htm

Go to the bottom of the page to click to the additional information. 7 Pages)

Visual signs of capacitor failure,

http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/


{ Back in the day there was espionage at a large capacitor company.
An employee tried to abscond with an Electrolytic Capacitor paste formula.
The company got a heads up before this transpired, and she was given a bogus formula.

The formula didn't have the correct chemical composition, and would develop gas after a time period.
The gas (Hydrogen Gas) expands in the capacitor, and causes seals to be compromised, where the paste is then pushed out.
So much paste loss, and the capacitor can operate in a weakened state.
Too much paste loss, and the capacitor fails

The AOpen motherboards were made in this time period, and not to slam AOpen, but they grabbed up on cheap quality capacitors. Guess which ones they got? AOpen is now out of business.

There were 1000's upon 1000's of these Electrolytic Capacitors made, and they are STILL plaguing electronic components today.

Just a heads up if you find problems with other electronic devices, or components also.
(I replaced some in a Modem. Modem has worked great for 2 years now)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague }


Problem is that Electrolytic Capacitors do not always show visual signs of failure. The paste can also dry up inside, and no outward visual sign will be apparent.

It could also be a bad Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail.
Enough power to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans a few times, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL of the LED light on at once use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 watts of power.
Depends on what processor it is.

AOpen AK77-333?

Socket A (Also known as Socket 462) processor socket. Uses AMD processors with up to a 266MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (266MHz FSB)

AMD Athlon , or Athlon XP, or Duron.

My board does not turn on and its beeping. Ive counted 7 beeps. i tried replacing the memory with known good ones but still the beeping persist.


MSI states that 7 beeps means "Virtual mode exception error "


Explanation: Virtual mode is one of the different modes that the processor can run in. The system is reporting an error when testing this mode.
Diagnosis: There is a problem related to the processor or motherboard. Note that this doesn't mean that the processor is necessarily dead, since the system won't boot at all with a dead processor.


Not knowing the price of either your processor or the board it is hard to say what to do for the best

Good luck

Award BIOS Beep Codes
Award BIOS uses beeps of varying duration. A long beep will typically last for 2 seconds while a short beep will last only 1 second. Award BIOS also uses beeps of different frequency to indicate critical errors. If an Award BIOS detects that the CPU is overheating it may play a high pitched repeating beep while the computer is running.
BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE
1 Long, 2 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter
Repeating (Endless loop) Memory error Bad memory or bad connection

Processor fan stops working


It could be caused by hardware failure:
If the reinstalling or during installation of operating system it is occasionally shut off,it is a very likel as hardware failure.Often this is RAM ,CPU,Power Supply also cause this problem.
Solution:
So open your prcessor fan and check that it is sticked or not. If it is sticked then try to solution with to arranging greeze or some more lubricants.

Processor fan failure massage.


I supose the fan works, you then need to enter bios and disable cpu fan monitoring, if the fan doesnt spin connect it to another fan connector or a plain 4pin molex connector / might require a adapter.

Try to get into bios and disable cpu fan fail alarm, keep the temperature alarm on 80 or 70. so it will yell if it gets too hot.

OC failure = over clocking failure. Make sure the CPU fan is clean, free from dirt & dust. Check CPU fan plug is connected correctly. If the CPU fan still stops after a few seconds replace the CPU fan.
It's harder to find just a fan to fit your heatsink, which sits on your CPU. It is easier to find a new heatsink \ fan combo for your Intel. Use your manual to find what Intel chip is on your board. Use that information & search google for a heatsink & fan combo. Pay close attention to how your current heatsink is mounted to the Gigabyte board.
