If it is the fan in the power supply, replace the power supply.
The case fan is easily replaced. Measure it (in mm) and purchase a new one. The standard fan is usually 40 mm, I think.

Overheating on Compaq Presario Notebook Model C501NR


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem 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 is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

What will be the possible cause when my laptop compaq presario C700 is automatically turning off?


If the laptop shuts down and won't boot up until it has cooled down, then the CPU is overheating and goes into thermal shutdown. This is caused by either a faulty fan or the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust.
If this is not fixed then eventually the CPU will fail completely.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely if not then replace the fan.
If the fan and heatsink is clogged with dust then remove the dust from the fan and heatsink fins.

My Compaq Presario SR2172NX desktop fan keep


Its good to keep like that since PCs need cooling regularly. Not like laptops. Laptops are designed based on architectures which provides cooling internally. Using copper pipes is an example. Anyway there are ways to control the fan speed. Before that check which fan that runs constantly. There are several fans in a system unit. Such as CPU fan, Graphic controller fan, chassis fan, extra coolers. First thing is that you have to adjust your power scheme. Go to control panel and then power options. Select appropriate settings.
If you use Vista as the OS this is a common problem since its visual effects eat the cpu. Specially that side bar and other things and drivers.
Check whether you have a process which is using 100% cpu using task manager. (Processes tab in task manager). If so either you have to stop it or terminate it of its a hanged program.
There are options to control the fan speed in your bios. Check the bios. To enter bios you can use one of these keys. Del, F2, F10 or Esc. One will let you in. Check the fan options and specially for a QFan option. You have to adjust the settings to control the fan. Finally there are hardware controllers which controls the fan speed near the fan (built in to the fan or near the fan's plug on the mother board). You can adjust them if you need to.
Please rate the answer if it helps you to overcome the issue. Thanks for contacting Fixya

The P.C. at startup says the fan needs to be replaced and then powers down.


This warning could mean another thing. It could be overheating problem. For your question, just take off its cover then take the fan and measure its size then also get its spec. Its more direct and sure way.

Just power down your unit and disconnect from power source before doing that

Hope it helps.
