Replace the inner part of the fan - some unit just slip right out. check on kijiji and find a local computer repair guy that will sell you one for 5 or 10 bucks, or get a broken laptop for 50 to 100 and lots of parts. I had one broken wing and broke on off the other side to even it out... even though one side had 1 extra wing it wasn't that far off balance so vibration should be minimal. if you keep your laptop clean inside around the heat-sink and fan area and put silver heatsink on the gpu and cpu as well as install the manufacturer drivers and update them to cool things down and speed things up and keep things from heating up. One more issue is the charging port and charger end get frayed and or loose and will cause heating issues and have caused fires. Replace batteries that are weak as they are continually charging too much.... Store batteries and at 70% and don't pull them out of the laptop while it's plugged in. Fully charge batteries and fully discharge them between charges. Good to have 2 batteries. Don't use hot batteries especially after charging and don't charge a hot battery.
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
I really suggest that you replace the fan it is not that hard to do. Get a replacement and look for how to do the job online in Google Search engine. There are samples usually at YouTube.com for this type of thing. If you continue to run this computer you may be replacing a mother board shortly now is the time to fix this. If you do not want to attempt it take it into a professional it will cost you a lot less than a brand new computer. I hope this assisted you. Thanks for using FixYa! John
If money is tight I would try to replace the fan, I seen them on ebay for 10 bucks, but what I am concern with is what broke off all the blades, and did the laptop over heat when it was powered on with a faulty fan. Personally what I would do is order the fan, if it fixes it you did good, if it doesn't fix it then you are only out 10 + freight, and then it is time for a new laptop.
Well we done this couple times on our own machines;If you broken the Face/Plate where your Cpu set in place,1.you maybe able to get ont though Manufacturer,and thats slim chance,because there in business to make money,to sell you new motherboard.2.Well what we done if your heatsink clip is real Good set it all in place where it needs to be,take areal small amount of good static tape go around it,it will hold it in place tempory.3.Then put your heatsink on,and clip it on both sides.4.That will work Tempory/or for long time depends on you tearing it apart again.5.Ours x's Laptop sold it to afreind and show hime what we done,and he was o'kay with it.It still working after 6months.Thanks we hope this may help you.
If you are innovative enough one can improvise by simply hold the fan to the heat sink with copper wire in case only one bracket is broken. The fan only requires to be on the heat sink to remove heat from the processor. Otherwise the fan & heat sink as one sealed unit only. Else try out the junk yard and see if you can hunt for one where PC's are dumped !
However if you want your PC to last for 2-3 yrs more, trouble-free, then my recommendation would be to replace the fan+heat sink unit, 'cos if the heat conducting paste between the processor & heat sink, if disturbed cannot be replaced to its original capacity & the processor will overheat and the PC will auto shut down repeatedly, till the processor is damaged permanently! .............................sodeep
i have 1 as well and it broke too. this is http://computers.pricegrabber.com/laptop-accessories/m/1754767/
if its the cord's thats broken, its most likely the switch, more specifically the soldering where the wire connects to the switch is prolly broken. i just sawed my switch open w/ a knife, and took a look. now if a wire is loose in the switch, u can either solder it back on, or (in my case i always have the fan on anyway cuz of my **** dell computer overheating) rip the wire off the switch completely and just connected it w/ aluminum foil.
First use a test light and make sure you are getting voltage to the fan with the ignition key on and the ac selector in on position.If no voltage check fuse in fusebox or (in linefuse ), If fuses are good check the fan relay switch. If all are good check for broken wire or bad ground.If you are getting voltage to the fan motor or the test light lights up then chances are you have a bad fan motor.
