Any Pentium 4 fan will do. The pc will not boot without a CPU fan plugged in.

My pc fans runs constantly and the computer is hot


There are several things to look for here.
  • The CPU Heat sink (the big metal block with a fan) may not be making good contact with the CPU surface area.
  • Thermal compound may have not been applied between the CPU surface area and heat sink
  • The heat sink and fan are not sufficient enough to cool your CPU
  • Dust buildup is not allowing proper circulation of cooling air
If this system is not a name brand and covered by warranty then I would remove the heat sink (carefully) and verify that the mounting bracket is not broken or loose. I would check that ample thermal compound is applied, and if not use rubbing alcohol to remove all compound from the heat sink and CPU and purchase a tube of compound to apply yourself. I would also thoroughly clean the heat sink with compressed air.
If the heat issue continues then you will want to consider upgrading to a more powerful cooling solution.
The CPU fan should run constantly but in some systems will run between 50% and 100% speeds assuming a variable temperature control is applied to the system via motherboard or third party installation.

Hey man, I saw a previous post where you were the only person to help the customer out. Probably pretty easy question, but my heat sink retention bracket for the CPU broke. It is an HP pavilion 514n. ...


I'd suggest release the other side and remove the fan & heat sink. They often come as a unit. Its very common to buy a new fan and the heat sink comes with it. It really depends on what processor your using. Its getting hard to find pent 3 stuff but otherwise you should be able to find another heat sink or fan, or combo with both and the bracket to fasten it is part of the heatsink fan assembly. Take the whole assembly to your local computer geek shop. They'll have another one.OR have a bones system they'll borrow from. You should find it on-line somewhere, but it would take awhile to find one. If you can carry in to a shop you'll be more likely to leave with the right thing. You might be able to rig it with something, but with the much heat around it and voltage being so close it wouldnt be a very good choice. I had one that broke one and then a little piece started rubbing the fan and making noise. I think the heat is what made the plastic so brittle and why it just broke.

Hi! I have Asus m2n-vm hdmi motherboard, about month ago i've got problem: if computer works more than 12 hours, it freezes and works normally just after few hours "rest". Also, after shutdown...


Hi lvadim1993,
In other word your PC works intermittently. Here is what you have to do. Check and remove the processor cooling fan and heat sink clean the cooling fan and heat sink. If you have a thermal compound remove the old thermal compound and put a little amount at the center of the heat sink. Reinstall it back the processor cooling fan and heat sink and make sure It install properly even and snag tight. re plug in the cooling fan connector to the motherboard. If you have a video card remove and clean the video card connector and the cooling fan and heat sink with air blower same also to the memory card. Use the air blower to clean the motherboard and the entire internal of the PC. Reinstall the video card and the memory card and make sure that they are install properly. replug in the video cable and the pc power cord and turn on the PC. this will work. the computer is just over heating. I hope that this information will help you solve the problem.

AUTO SHUTTING DOWN WHEN LOADING WINDOWS


Hi there!
AMDs (some of them) have Overheating issues. Your default BIOS is set to protect the CPU chip in case of overheating. It will do so by shutting down the computer.
You can hold "delete" key on boot to enter BIOS. Go to "PC Health Status" or " Hardware monitor". Here if you see temperature exceeding 60 degrees or more, this mean it's OVERHEATING!
Now the first thing is to check if your CPU fan is running & is well secured with the lock. Try to move it to see if it's loose. Secure it properly to solve. If it's not running, you'll need to replace.
However if it's not the problem, remove the fan & its aluminum heat-sink with CARE. Then re-seat the heat-sink properly.
Note that a poor contact of CPU & heat-sink = Very Hot CPU & cold heat-sink.
If it's not the case, therefore remove the heat-sink & clean the old thermal paste on it & the Cpu chip also.
Apply proper thermal grease e'g Arctic Silver.
If the above does not solve the issue, you'll need to replace fan. (pls check with another one before buying a new one if possible)
Ultimately if the issue is not solved by the above, this means that the heat sensor on the motherboard is faulty. Here motherboard needs replacement or warranty services.
Hope this advice really helps you. Please remember to send us your valuable feedback as it's very important for us!

K8S-LA mobo heat sink fell off.


That is the 'Northbridge' chip that provides the I/O interfacing for the main chip. The heat sink is normally held on with glue as you surmised, and should be re-done with a thermal conductive glue. The glue (a silver filled epoxy) is available from MCM electronics or from Mouser. Be sure to thoroughly clean the chip and heat sink before re-gluing.
