What kind of cpu cooling fan can I use in a Acer America ASE380-UD420A desktop computer?


Cooling fan to CPU are come along with the CPU. You can use any other fan, having speed regulator pin, ie, the connector wire to it will have three conductors. Keep a close look at the size and seating screws to its body to the heat-sink of the CPU.

Heats up quickly and fan is very loud


When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

When i boot up the laptop i get a message 'Main Fan Error' the fan runs on start up then stops just before i get the error message. Fan will not restart... Joseph


Hi,

This message means that the fan on your CPU (processor) is failing or has failed. This is not good because if the fan on the CPU fails your CPU will overheat and cause your machine to lock up and become non-functional till it cools down and then the same cycle will repeat till the fan is replaced.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Removal of CPU


There are several types of CPU fan / Heatsink assymblies on the market these days, usually there is a lever, or two on either side of the fan that tension the fan and heatsink to the CPU socket. Once released the fan/heatsink should come off as a single unit. Sometimes you may need to gently " wiggle " the fan/heatsink in a rotating motion to loosen it from the CPU thermal grease.

Once the fan/heatsink is removed, the CPU slot will have a single lever on one side, this can be lifted, and the CPU should come out of the socket.

Remember to gently place the new CPU into the socket, it should only seat properly one way, so remember to note how the original CPU was seated.

Apply a very thin film of thermal grease to the top of the CPU*, and re-attach the cooling fan / heatsink unit.

*Thermal grease is quite inexpensive, and easy to apply, put a small dab in the center of the top of the CPU, and with a small flat piece of plastic such as an old credit card, smooth the grease out and spred it to the edges of the raised surface of the CPU.

The fan not working


Hi,

The CPU Fans, once they stop, you should only replace the entire FAN assembly, as it cant be serviced individually..The coil present in the mtor should have burned, this is the common cause for the fan failure

This heatsink & fan assembly can be bought for your system from the below link

http://www.skyline-eng.com/index.cfm

Under the window: Search by Machine click the dropdown menue & choose your system
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.
Please leave me coment,if you need further assistance
