    I couldn't find the version on the motherboard so looking at pictures it looked similiar to 3.2A but then I found the version in the corner by the power supply box and it is V 1.3



    Have another stupid question though. Will the heat sink fan being bad or disconnected will this prevent the computer from (I get nothing when I plug it in and turn it on- not even movement from the PS fan) booting up?



    The reinstalling of either the heat sink fan or even a new power supply don't look that difficult just don't want to pay for something if I don't need to.

    It’s not hard to replace the Retention Module for you're socket 478 motherboard. You can buy a new one from this link. Click a pic to enlarge it.

    There are more on the next link towards the bottom of the page.

    For a CPU with heatsink fan assembly click here.

    All these support the socket 478 CPU.

    Tip-1: CPU fans that have a grill over the blades catch dust & slow the fan down, not a lot but they also raise the noise level.

    Tip-2: Copper heatsinks dissipate heat faster than aluminum.

    This is computer repair. You buy a new part, add it to the system & start it up. There is no question about the retention module. You must have that & it’s only a few dollars.

    NO computer will turn on with out the CPU connected.

    What you need to do is look with the aid of a powerful Magnifying glass at the CPU surface. You might have cracked the CPU during installation. It took allot of pressure to break the retention module.

    Even buying a 300 to 350w power supply is rather cheep. Anything you do will be far less expensive than taking it to a repair shop. If you are thinking of doing that, it would be cheaper for you to buy everything, motherboard CPU heatsink & fan & building it you're self. Bottom line. If you have a good friend with a PC. See if you can swap you're power supply into their PC. See it works. No one wants to spend money on new parts, just to find their old parts work but this is the name of the game. If you're power supply worked before, it’s most likely still good. I'd be concerned with the CPU.

    I wouldn't worry about that version number.

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.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215 and it keeps shutting down and getting hot. I don't think the internal fan is working. Can this be fixed and is it expensive?


Replacing the fan on the CPU or the GPU, Graphics card, is actually very simple and the fan will run about $20 to $25 depending on what type of fan you get and where. Aside from a new fan you will need a small tube of heat sink compound. The fan just clips on to the CPU. Make sure you get a fan that is designed for your CPU type or it will not fit properly. For instance, if you have a P-3 CPU you can't fit it with a P-2 Chip or P-4 chip, they won't mount correctly and subsequently they won't work. When you go to Best Buy or the computer shop your to buy your part tell them what type of CPU you have and that you want the cooling fan and the heat Sink Compound to mount it with. They will be able to direct you to the proper fan Type. Also, while you have it opened up take the opportunity to use canned Air to blow the dust out of the machine. If you are doing what is called Over Clocking it is important that you know you may have burned the CPU out as this causes the CPU to heat up more than it would if you just had it installed for the proper speed. The old fan will be difficult to remove because the old heat sink compound will have formed a bond between the fan heat sink and the CPU itself. If you have to do any prying to remove the old fan make sure you do so carefully and make sure you clean the old heat sink compound off the CPU before you try mounting the new fan. When you apply the new Heat sink compound you want to place the compound in the center of the CPU and let the heat sink spread the compound out in a thin layer. This compound needs to be spread evenly so it forms a good bond between the Heat sink and the CPU itself to properly transfer the heat from the CPU to the heat sink so the fan can properly cool the CPU.

Mt dimension 3000 gets very noisy when the weather


That's because it heats up more easily and faster, which usually makes the fans spin faster and results in being noisy. Have you ever cleaned out the interior of the computer? If not, or if it's been awhile since it's been done, then buy some canned air for dusting electronics, open the side of the computer case (while it's not powered ON), and blow out the fans and the heat sink. If you get alot of just clogging up the heat sink, then it will not dissipate heat correctly; which results in the fans running more often. It that doesn't help any, then I would try to figure out if one of the fans is making alot of noise because it's going bad. You can find replacement fans on ebay, or at local electronics\computer shops.

I am wanting to take the cpu fan off to clean and reinstall some thermal compound but I am not sure how to take the cpu fan off


Release the clamps that hold the heat sink, and carefully give it a slight twist to break the compound grip, and lift off. The CPU should remain in it's socket.

The bracket clip that holds the fan down broke. Is there a fix or do I buy a new fan?


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

When i start up the xbox it has no video, only sound.


Its possible for you to fix the problem your self.
how ever the fix may not last long .

Ok hear we go

find a video on how to strip the box down to the P.C. board.
pull the board out of the chaise by the small heat sink only
do not disturb the big heat sink at all or you will break the
seal an get 2 reds ( over heating)

Now that you have the main board in your hand
flip it over a carefully very carefully pry off the x clamp
bracket holding down the small heat sink for the G.P.U.

remove the heat sink from the board ,take out the four
studs under the heat sink . clean the gray heat sink off
the top of the two chips with rubbing alcahole ,do the
same with the heat sink then apply some heat sink compound
to the chips place the heat sink back on the chip
get four 10-32 by 3/8 long and EVENLY screw down
the heat sink Not too tightly ( snug not tight) .

Put the unit back together ,leave out the white fan
shroud plug everything back in and leave the fan
hanging out .

Now plug in the power and a/v cable place and hold
the fan over the Large heat sink for C.P.U. and turn on
the power .I should take 4-5 min till the fan gets up
to full then another 3-5 min to over heat Two red light
be ready to unplug the second this happens .
let it cool down for about 15-20 min and you should
have restored your video feed. I cant say how
long it will last .

if you have any questions feel free to email me

that you can buy from raido shack

Replace heatsink fan on CPU.


The thermal paste should be cleaned off. Clean the CPU and heatsink fan with a dry cloth, which should remove the paste quite well. It is simply a viscous liquid and should not require scraping.

You should replace the thermal paste when installing the new fan. You can purchase it at your local computer supply store. Simply place a small dab of it on top of the CPU and then install the fan.

If you try to re-use the existing thermal paste, you will not get reliable heat transfer from the CPU to the fins.
