Hi - what Wattage is the Power Supply? I think you may need around 500 watts or more.

I have had similar problems in the past caused by insufficient Power being supplied to components (including having to move my Video Card's power cable pick up to very close to the Power Supply Unit instead of coming off the tail end of the wiring harness! - this worked in my case).

Hope this helps.

Is it alroght to use this fan on an AMD Phenom X4 9450e Quad core Processor? Is is adquate?


It will work but I'd personally not use it as a long term prospect. Given the cpu you have, I'd buy a better spec model with more comprehensive cooling

Cooling fan does not come on no power to the computer


So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you are the victim of a bad BIOS flash, don't freak there are some options. First off, if the computer (or motherboard) is still under warranty the Computer (or motherboard) can be sent to the Vendor for a BIOS reprogramming.
If you are a DIY PC builder and the warranty is expired you can take out the bios chip and sent it someone who reprograms BIOS chips or you can buy a brand new chip form them. I will show you my people.

For non-BIOS issues:

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in the capacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker (20-25 dollars at local PC shop), get the supply tested at a PC shop (usually a free service), put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

If the Powersupply checks out ok, then you will have to do a process of elimination to find out what part or parts are the culprit of the No-Boot.

Start by pulling all the ram sticks if you have not already. This is the easiest components to check and usually a culprit.

Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

If it is not the RAM, you have to continue removing items such as sound cards, un-plugging hard drives and optical drives, other PCI cards. Do this one at a time until you find the culprit. If a POST screen, meaning you can see Anything from the PC brand name to Motherboard brand name appearing on the screen.

Hi rebecca_fran,
Well the system is shutting down for a reason but before you run off & buy a new CPU fan I want you to try something.
Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open your case & ground your self by simply touching any bare metal. (The bottom of the case will do).
Please remove the memory currently in your system. If you have never done this before please check within the manual for your eMachine. (There should be a section on how to install memory).
You can also click on this uTube link, it’s a bit long but you can skip through the video.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsXNT6fnHmM&feature=related
If you have some canned air blow out the memory slots.
(Do not place your fingers on the memory contacts at any time).
Re-seat the memory, firmly but gently. Leave the case opened & plug in the power cord. Turn on the PC. See if the fan runs & the system doe’s not shut down. If it still does replace the CPU fan.

Your PC uses an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ / 2.3 GHz CPU.
Here is a replacement AMD CPU fan & assembly.
http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/std/sku=dual_core_cpu_fan.html

The CPU will come with thermal tap on its underside. (No need to buy thermal grease).
(Make sure you remove the old thermal grease from the top of the CPU). Use a clean rag with a little alcohol on it. (Not dripping). Allow time for drying. Do not scratch the CPU surface.

Good luck rebecca_fran!

My AMD X 2 4000+ Windsor is overheatting


Hi, you shouldnt even switch on the PC if its running at that temperature, machine will be restarting and shutting down on you.
If you just bought it, you should take it back to the shop.
Otherwise you need to remove the old heatsink and fan and apply new thermal paste to the cpu and resit the heatsink, if its still running very hot over 50c you will probably find the cpu has been damaged.

Have a nice christmas

You need a Type 2 PCMCIA card for this laptop. I was able to find a wired one here. Be sure that your OS will work with the card you choose. Also I have no experience with that website, so buyer beware. Another good place to find older computer parts is eBay, happy hunting.

Laptop Cooling Problem


Don't think you will find any documentation online to help you disassemble. Unless someone around here has some Toshiba field service manuals in pdf form.

Sounds like you just need to replace the fan. They do go bad over time. Also, don't used high pressure compressed air to clean out a fan. Unless you hold the fan still using a small screwdriver. The compressed air, if too much, will ruin a fan's bearing if you let it spin freely while blowing out. The canned compressed air showed be ok though.

You can search on ebay for a replacement fan, might be used though. Could do a google search for a new one. Somewhere like Notebookparts.com.

And I think the A45 may have two fans in it. If you can get inside of it, which sounds like you have allready, then you should be able to easily identify the fan(s).
