Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

CPU fan and chasis fan runs at twice the regular speed of 2k rpm and 1k rpm respectively. The cpu temperature is normal and pc is in a cold environment. This seems to happen more when I watch online streaming videos or movies. Does the problem lie with the fans or the cpu or something else?

It is absolutely normal, CPU fan RPM can go as far as 3500 Rpm and Chassis fan as far as 2000Rpm. Best to have a cool PC, if you would like you can take a look at my tip entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!! it explains every-thing.

Thanks

I did everything (remove,check,clean,replace thermal past) for my qosmio F30-140's fans, but still they run normally without temperature level. Despite of high temperature, they run normally; before it...


Not sure if I understood the problem, but fan's speed is controlled by a motherboard. if it's intel CPU based laptop, usually the temperature might reach 80 C degrees before fans start to spin faster.

Processor thermal treat error while booting


Make sure that cpu fans are running normally. Go to BIOS (generally with F2 on intel motherboards), and there will be information about cpu temperature, also fan speed (in RPM). If fan speed is 0 or very low problem is in cpu fan. (connection problem might be). If cpu fan speed is normal (high value) and cpu temperature is high, I will suggest you to open your PC case (or notebook) and see whether cpu fan is dirty or not. This is very common problem. If so, clean it.

CPU FAN STUCK ON FULL SPEED.


I think if the CPU run always on full speed and the noise is evident and bothers you ..it means that it has something that force the CPU to run on a higher temperature than normal one ..
This can be the environment or a heat source you use in the room ..or just dust covering the heat dispenser and making necessary for the fan to run faster to compensate .
running the system for long hours and having a high temperature in the room is probably the cause..To avoid damage ..try to clean teh heat dispenser (the aluminum part under the fan )..or at least to remove teh system cover and leave it cool better ..you can also install a second fan and this way assure a better cooling for the CPU ..

I have a HP M1270N Media Center PC. The CPU Fan


The CPU fan is designed to run constantly to prevent the CPU from overheating. The speed depends on temperature condition of the room; slow in cold and fast in a hot room. However if you suspect that it runs too fast them try re-seating the CPU. WARNING: Re-seating should only be done if you are know how to do; don't experiment.

If it is running noisy, you can apply one or two drops of machine oil to the fan's spindle.

Other reasons include deposits of dust; use a blower to remove dust from the heat-sink.

To make sure you CPU is not in a critical state, log in the BIOS and in the hardware monitoring tab check the CPU temperature. It should be near 60 deg Celsius or 140 Fahrenheit.

One thing more, do not apply thermal grease in excess; its a conductive compound and can short the motherboard if it melts and deposits on the motherboard due to high CPU temperature.

Computer keeps shutting down.


Do the fan's spin when you power the PC on? All of the fans should spin up for at least a second upon initial boot. The CPU fan and video fan (if you have an external card) will spin the entire time the PC is on and vary in speed depending on temperature.

Try booting the PC with the side of the case off and note and fans that aren't spinning. The temperature to shut off the CPU is really high. If the temperature is getting hot enough to do this, you should notice a failure in a fan right away.

Computer turns on but no display/cpu_fan slot not working.


The four-pin CPU fan connector is the same as the three-pin (red is for voltage, black is ground and yellow for the rpm reading) but also adds a blue wire used by some BIOS sets to adjust the RPM speed of the fan. The three-pin will fit into a four-pin connector without modification, using a jumper is DEFINITELY not recommended as it could short your board.

If your system has the four-pin fan, and it boots and runs without error, it may be that your CPU is running cool enough that the fan is not needed at the time. Check your BIOS for a hardware monitor to see the actual CPU temperature. Also, you may have added utilities in Windows to give the fan speed and CPU temperature in real time. You may also notice the CPU fan kicking in when doing CPU intensive operations (virus scans, etc.)

The four-pin fan would run from a three-pin connector but would always run at full speed because the RPM Adjust signal is not present.

Cpu fan not running fast enough


This will depend on the motherboard you are using.

however, you need to make sure that the CPU fan lead is plugged into the correct plug on the motherboard... for example, I have an Intel 975xbx motherboard and it has 4 fan plugs, but only one of those is for the CPU. The others are for front/rear/top fans. If the CPU fan is plugged into one of the secondary ports, the CPU fan wont speed up correctly.

Also, some BIOS settings in the motherboard allow you to enable or disable automatic fan speed adjustment, and also set the temperature points.

Cpu fan noisy/chip fan fail error messages


pils,

Yes. This sounds like a fan issue. The noise often comes from bearings failing within the fan. Also, a failing bearing can make things harder on the motor as it brings the fan up to speed. This is likely the reason that you see increased warnings during the fan speed check while booting because it comes to speed more slowly as bearing wear increases.

I give this a 90% chance that your CPU fan is causing the issue. Since a decent CPU fan will cost you ~$20 online, it's not much out of your pocket if you happen to uncover another culprit.

I'll keep an eye on this post. Let me know how things go.

Problem with the CPU cooling fan...!! :-(


Dear ARGHYA,
welll i can understand this, for this you can apply the Heatsink Grease between CPU and CPUFAN . it will help to reduce the CPU Temprature.
