Asus m32 loud fan


Fan speed does increase for a reason.....heat. Check you BIOS settings and verify that the CPU temp is not getting too high. Desktop computers are dirt magnets. It is common for the CPU heatsink to get clogged with dust and dirt. This will reduce cooling and increase heat, eventually to the point that the fan will speed up. Get some electronic duster (canned air) and blow out the fins on the CPU heatsink. DO NOT remove the heatsink from the CPU. There is a special compound that is on the heatsink surface that allows proper heat transfer from the CPU. Removing the heatsink means that this compound is disturbed and would need replaced. Most users do not have this compound and thus should not remove the heatsink to clean. If the heatsink is so clogged that you cannot get the dirt out with canned air, you may be able to remove the fan from the heatsink, depending on the fan/heatsink design. Then you can use a brush to get into the fins to clean them.

Lenovo chipset heating problem


If this is on a desktop lenovo and if it is a slightly older board you may have to remove the heatsink and RE-DO the heatsink compound as there was a common issue with some boards.
NOTE some heatsinks were soldered in and if you are not happy with removing those then a good friend who is knowledgable will be able to help out there.

It isnt a big job but often fixes issues.

If however you are really talking about the CPU heatsink then once again it is pretty simple to do yourself but make sure you clean ALL the old heatsink paste off with isopropynol.

I use CERAMIC heatsink paste (white stuff) as it lasts longer and conducts heat better for lower overall temps.

Hello, I've got a Dell Optiplex GX280 series desktop pc which has refused to boot up. Instead it shows an error saying "Alert! chipset heat sink not detected system halted! Would appreciate your...


Both your CPU and chipset have heatsinks to dissipate the heat they generate.
Over times, the heatsink compound between these components and the heatsinks
may dry up and no longer conducts heat efficiently. Your system on power up,
detects excessive heat from the chipset and if allowed to continue on, will burn
itself up. To protect it, your system shuts itself down.
Open up your case and inspect the chipset. Make sure the fan (if any) is running.
If it is, you may have to remove the heatsink (normally clipped on to the chipset)
and remove the old compound and apply a fresh new layer of heatsink grease.
While you are at it, also replace the heatsink compound of your CPU.

Toshiba Satellite L500D is shutting down by itself OVERHEATING Clean the fan with compress Air ....> NO GO Need help Please or Any other Suggestion


Disassemble the laptop and remove the heatsink.
Remove all the dried up heatsink goo that's on the heatsink and processor.
Squeeze a small amount of QuickSilver heatsink compound onto the middle of the processor top.
Place the heatsink on the processor and move it in a couple small circles before locking the processor heatsink back in place.
Clean the air vents and cooling fins well while the unit is open.
This should fix any overheating issues you are having (assuming the fan is OK)
If the fan isn't running, replace it.

You have to put a lot of weight on the heat sync for it to boot up


I would assume that it's the cpu heatsink? Actually, it's a bad thing to put extra weight on the heatsink for it may damage the processor. The spring and locking mechanism of the heatsink is just enough to transfer the heat from the processor to the heatsink. Problem maybe on your processor not properly seated on the slot. Remove the heatsink assembly, and release or remove the processor from the slot. Check if there's a foreign object in the slot, a brush will do the cleaning. Reinstall the processor and the heatsink assembly.

automatically shutting down is an indication of thermal issue or over heating. how ever when you say automatically shutsdown does the computer turns off? try checking your heatsink fan and the heat sink as well as the air vents. make sure all the air vents are free from obstruction and the heatsink is clear of all dust which can prevent the air from cooling your processor. if still it continues change heatsink fan and heatsink. make sure to apply the thermal grease between heatsink and processor
