Did you remove the CPU heatsink and refit it using thermal paste, then refit the power to the header on the motherboard. This is usually the fan it refers to

Why are my cooling fans for radiator running constantly?


The cooling fans are supposed to run any time the a/c is on in order to keep air flowing across the condenser. Your a/c will not work properly at idle if they quit.

2000 Mazda Protege A/C will cool air but airflow will randomly start, stop, and change intensity. Checked fuses, relays, and front cooling & additional A/C fans and ask seem to be working, perhaps a blower...


Sounds like the blower resistor. It can make contact and break contact as it heats up and cools down. This would cause sudden changes. If the airflow gradually changes speed, it could be the blower motor binding, such as if the motor lubrication has become very old or used up.

My van overheats and turns off automatically


You should have 2 cooling fans in front of your radiator. These are controlled by the computer. You have a temp sensor that tells the computer when to turn the fans on and off. Your problem could be this sensor. If it quits working properly and lets the engine heat up then the computer will shut off the engine to save the engine. When it cools down, you can start it again.

I have bought a new toshiba A665 a week ago. I have a problem saying. ' A problem in the cooling system has been identified. Switch off ur computer and return it for service.' Cooling fan is working but...


At a week old, get a replacement or fix it right away. Fix should be free, but no computer during service.....

Toshibas run too hot, in my opinion.... so you have to keep after the fans and keep lint cleaned out of it....

Overheating will yield un stable system,

Hi! I have Asus m2n-vm hdmi motherboard, about month ago i've got problem: if computer works more than 12 hours, it freezes and works normally just after few hours "rest". Also, after shutdown...


Hi lvadim1993,
In other word your PC works intermittently. Here is what you have to do. Check and remove the processor cooling fan and heat sink clean the cooling fan and heat sink. If you have a thermal compound remove the old thermal compound and put a little amount at the center of the heat sink. Reinstall it back the processor cooling fan and heat sink and make sure It install properly even and snag tight. re plug in the cooling fan connector to the motherboard. If you have a video card remove and clean the video card connector and the cooling fan and heat sink with air blower same also to the memory card. Use the air blower to clean the motherboard and the entire internal of the PC. Reinstall the video card and the memory card and make sure that they are install properly. replug in the video cable and the pc power cord and turn on the PC. this will work. the computer is just over heating. I hope that this information will help you solve the problem.

My system only boots as far as the initial bios screen where it says Press F1 or Delete for setup and just hangs there. The keyboard indicators light up, but it will not boot any further.


Good Morning!

and wish you a Happy New Year2011.

1. Visual checkup of the Motherboard: See for any defective capacitors on the board near Processor. A defective capacitor will have a tapered surface and a good one will be flat, on the top. You need to service motherboard. Most of the motherboards carry 3-years warranty.

2. RAM problem: try to put your RAM chips in another slot if vacant. if you have two slots and both are occupied, then try starting system, by placing one RAM at a time and in each slot alternately.
If any combination works then you can make out if and whether your RAM or its slot is faulty.

3. Hanging due to overheating: Before you get the message "Press F1....", pres PAUSE key several times, it should halt the process and the message will not be displayed. This will make sure that the system is halted by pressing the PAUSE Key. After one minute, release pause by pressing any other key and see if you can move further. There may be two possibilities . . .

a) If you are still in the same position, where you have paused the system. The system is halted due to CPU over-heating. Clean the CPU fan with blower or a vacuum cleaner. See, if all of the locks of the CPU FAN and the heat-sink are intact. If the fan itself is not rotating, check for the fan cable and if it is OK, then try replacing CPU Fan.

b) You have reached the same point where it used to stuck before, i.e. at "Press F1...". Now this means your system has halted while detecting other peripherals or add-on cards.

i. HARDDISK: Most possible cause is your HARDDISK is making "click-click" sound and not getting detected. Switch off system and remove all HDD cables (Power and Data both). Start your system and see if you get any message like "insert system disk" this means there is problem with your HARDDISK. the same problem may be caused due to CDROMs. try same and try again.

ii. SMPS POWER SUPPLY: This symptom may be caused due to inadequate power supply. You can change SMPS and make sure if the problem is due to power supply.

iii. ADD-ON CARDS: Remove any add-on card like, Sound card, Graphics card, Modem and switch on the system. if system starts, then turn-off PC. Try placing one card at a time. and start system to make out which card is making the problem.

If the problem remains, get back to us.

Have a nice day!

Outside ac unit operates but no blower. Fan "on" does not operate from thermostat. However "heat" works fine furnace and blower. ???


Go to furnace and shut off power, remove blower door compartment. Inside you will find a control board where thermostat wires are connected. Should look something like this:

R-Red Wire= Power
G-Green Wire= Fan
W-White Wire=Heat
Y=Yellow or Blue Wire=Cooling.

It sounds like you have a bad motor speed. So try this:

With Power Still Off, on the same control board there is a terminal usually marked Cool and Heat. There should also be a couple of terminals that are named park. The wires hooked to these are the fan wires..

Exchange the Heat and Cool wires on the terminal board. Put everything back together and try cooling again, if the fan comes on
then you have a burnt out motor speed. Go back to furnace and change
the heat and cool wires around, next if Cooling had the black wire hooked to it, put yellow or blue on Cooling and black to park.


Note: The reason why you put the blower door back on is because it
has a door switch that if not properly seated, you wont be able to power
up anything

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.
