Although the cpu fan may be working, the alarms are set to a temperature setting, so if the heat-sink that the fan is mounted gets clogged with dust ,dirt hair etc.. the processor temp rises and the alarm goes off. And in some cases if the user doesn't shut it down within a certain time period it is shut down automatically.
When you boot it up, the temp might be rising to that setting faster than the operting system can load.
Try a vac to clean it / or compressed air to blow it out

    Thanks LiLome. Turns out - the cheesy fasteners that came with the Intel fan supplied with the CPU had rattled loose in the move. Can't believe they actually chose these fasteners, which resemble plastic expansion bolts like you might use to hang a picture. They are broken now. Looks like I'll have to pull the MB to replace these with bolts, but no major harm done.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

Computer shutdown without any warning


When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the 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 isclogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear anddust free. Use a can of compressed air to do this.

If your laptop won't boot up again until it has cooled down, then the problem is a faulty fan and or dust clogging the fan and heatsink fins. The CPU overheats and shuts down (thermal overload) and if this problem is not then eventually the CPU will fail.
Check the fan and if it does not spin freely then it needs replacing.
If the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust, then remove the dust.

Amd phenom faulty


Replace cpu fan , failed cpu fan might have caused CPU stoped working. If you are sure about the CPU fails then replace the CPU. If the problem seems continues after that too, then PC might have failed to boot due to other reasons. What shows on the screen once you power on the computer? There could be , motherboard , or harddisk faults too. Try unplugging other parts and see if the computer boots from CD or USD flash or floppy drive!! Once you know that motherboard works then replace the CPU. There could be BIOS setup problem. Did you check the BIOS for harddisk is set properly.

Boot issue with gateway gt5028


I had a similar problem. It turned out to be the CPU. Try fishing around to find some way to try to make the computer "squeak". Like holding a key while it boots. This makes the computer make a warning tone. If it does so, I'd imagine there is activity. If any way possible you can try to test the CPU in a different comp. Oh, and have you done any work on it recently and how long has it been operating?

T5082 has stared overheating,


1) With the case open, turn on the computer and make sure the fan(s) is working properly.

2) This is NOT for the faint-of-heart! One of the most common causes of overheating requires you to remove the CPU (Intel P4 processor chip in your case), clean it, and re-install it. There is a thin layer of gray goop between the CPU and the Heat Sink (the thing that looks like a radiator, under the fan) which is designed to transfer heat from the CPU to the Heat Sink. This goop is called "thermal paste." If it gets dried out, it will not transfer heat any longer, and your CPU will overheat.

If you are willing to attempt to remove your CPU, clean it, and put a new layer of thermal paste on it, please reply and I will help walk you through the process. You should be aware that there is a possibility that you may completely destroy your CPU if you make a mistake.

ABIT-BL7 make sound


For reference, specifically, this would be indicative of an alarm on the motherboard. The only typical alarm of this nature would be an overtemperature alarm, either for chassis or (more typically) CPU temperature. In this case, it sounds like the CPU fan was failing, causing the CPU to overheat; once the threshhold temperature was reached (BIOS configurable), the alarm sounded. Remember, boys and girls, if your computer is making a sound like an ambulance, there's probably something bad going on.
