That's what usually breaks if you have a 478 pin cpu. Should be available in any computer shop. If the actual metal bracket on the heatsink broke you will have to buy a new fan/heatsink. Both solutions are cheap.

How to install cpu on HP Pavilion a1140n Desktop PC


Remove the heatsink and fan assembly over the CPU.
The CPU is locked in the CPU socket, lift up the locking lever to release the CPU.
The new CPU needs to be inserted into the socket and then lower the lever to lock the CPU into the socket.
Coat the CPU with heatsink compound before fitting the heatsink and fan.

Turns off after 1-2 mins like it got unpluged dell dimension 2350plus the clip to the heat exchange on top of the cpu broke


it's probably the cpu overheating because of the broken clip. You'll need to buy a new heatsink for the cpu (get some thermal paste at the same time). Take the old one off, clean the compound off the top of the cpu. Put a pea-size blob of thermal paste on the cpu and attach the new heatsink.

Alert chipset heat sink not detected system halted error message


It is NOT the CPU fan! There is a heatsink over the northbridge chipset adjacent to the CPU. The clip that supplies pressure to maintain contact between the northbridge and the heatsink has detached on one or both ends. There are wire loops at each end of the clip which feed into the motherboard. When the clip detaches (solder failure), it pops the loop out of the motherboard. The BIOS recognizes this condition as a heatsink failure, hence the error message.

Fan runs constantly


one reason that a CPU fan may be running constantly is that it may not be able to cool the cpu down. usually this could be due to dust or debri clogging the incoming or outgoing vents or even dust accumulated on the fan itself or the heatsink.

CPU Shutting Down the PC


The clips attach on either side of the heatsink. They usually just pry up to remove (take a pic if u can of the heatsink b/4 removing clips). I'm guessing the fan is loaded with dust. Cleaning a fan will usually fix any problem you're having with the fan itself. If after cleaning the fan it works and PC still shuts down, you have 1 of 2 problems:
  • Bad power supply; make a not if the fan for the power supply is still working; a can of compressed air does a nice job of cleaning the inside of the PC including the power supply
  • Bad motherboard; only cure for bad motherboard is replacement
I hope this clarifies your issue and please don't hesitate to post back with other PC issues. All the best!

Auto shutdown


Usually this problem is caused by a thermal [overheating] condition. Best solution is to open the case and see if the cpu fan is working. If not replace with a new heatsink fan combo and make sure you use a quality thermal grease between the cpu & heatsink. Hope this helps & please rate this solution as fixya. Thanks.

Hello, I have an HP Pavilion Slimline windows Vista and the fan won't stop running. Is this okay? It is not hot where the pc is sitting so I don't know if it's stuck or whats going on with it Any...


Good news! You don't want the fan to stop running. There are 2 in there most likely- one for the power supply and one for the CPU. Both run continuously to keep the innards at a safe operating temperature. If you want to keep an eye on the temperatures, I use SpeedFan and it'll keep a temperature in the lower right for you to watch.

Upgrade cpu on pavilion 6630


i am suggesting you the solution keeping in mind that there is no display is on the monitor.
The max ram that HP Pavilion 6630 PC Desktop can support is 256 mb pc 100 or pc 133mhz.
check if you have installed that amount of ram, if thats correct then check if any continues beep sound is coming out of CPU.

if there is beep try to change the ram slot.the more possibilty i either the new ram is faulty or incompatibel.

try to install the old ram see if it works. if still no display.


install old cpu and heat sink.see what happen ..

then let me know the result.

bye & take care..
