Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

Hi, I cleaned the CPU fan of the Acer M3202 (Desktop, Aspire, Phenom, AMD-3x). Now I do not find the Motherboard manual to plug back the 3-pin connector to the motherboard. I do know what is the place in the motherboard where the connector goes (it is the only free place available). However, this place has an additional row of pins. Therefore, I would very much appreciate it if you would send me the motherboard diagram so that I may plug back the CPU fan? Thanks, Joseph

SOURCE: finding a cpu cooler replacement for motherboard with screwholes.

You should be able to purchase a cooler that fits your existing cooler plate.
Replacing a cooler can sometimes be a lot of work. Sometimes you have to remove the motherboard from the case and remove the cooler plate from the underside of the motherboard. Then coolers that use "just the holes" can be used. Or another (different) cooler plate can be installed that may have came with your new cooler. In my experience, the coolers that use "just the holes" (no plate) leave a lot to be desired. Plus, if you're not careful, you can damage the motherboard by applying too much force when installing the fan. If you use a new plate, don't forget to install the insulator between the motherboard and the plate, if it comes with one.
Be careful to protect against unwanted electrostatic discharge. Always touch the metal computer case before touching any parts inside the computer. Also, if you remove the mobo, take careful note of where all the wires go before disassembly.

SOURCE: is this good for a

Hi,

I searched the internet and also from my experience can tell that this system is quite good. This system has all what is required by the latest gaming titles to run flawlessly.

If I would be pinpointing small issues then only would find that the hard drive needs to be at least 1 terabyte nothing else to complain.

In my opinion its quite a 'heavy' system and will sure give you an edge in modern multiplayer gaming over the internet where performance is the key to success.

Just a reminder that you should use 64 bit version of Windows on this system as a 32 bit system will not be able to use the 4GB RAM. A 64 bit system will better use the resources and you can upgrade to a higher amount if needed.

If you install a 32 bit OS it will show the total RAM as 2.5 GB and rest will be wasted. Windows 7 64 bit will be the best choice as it supports multithread, multicore CPUs and advanced graphics with DirectX 10/11.

In short I can say that this system is very much adequate for todays software/games and possibly future proof upto two years for extreme gaming. Also you can move to a better graphics card and more RAM when required. And be sure to use a adequately rated UPS/surge protector.

My Acer Aspire M5100 get power but will not turn on


Does the CPU fan come on ?
Does the power lead that plugs into the cpu fan on the motherboard supply the required voltage ?
This one is a bit harder and once you check it you most likely need to apply thermal paste - but is there sufficient thermal paste between the CPU and the heat sink on the CPU ?
Does the power supply box in the tower case have its fan spinning when power on ?
Is the motherboard bent ?
I have seen this one - poor installation with different sized mounting screws. When motherboard gets hot the motherboard went faulty.
Some motherboards need a rubber insulator under the screw maybe there is a short under one of the mounting screws !

My acer aspire M5100 getting into shudown mode


Check the temperature of the CPU in Bios. It is probably higher than the Safe temperature and it gets into shut down mode to protect itself.
Open it, detach the cooler from the CPU and clean it, detach the CPU from the socket, clean the paste from the top, put a new one, clean the socket and put everything back. It should work perfectly.
If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers

MY AMD PHENOM QUAD CORE HEAT SINK FAN IS NOT


First, check for dust. Compressed air works to clean it out.
Second, if the fan is not spinning at all when the computer is turned on, make sure it's plugged in - a wire should connect somewhere
If neither of those work, you may just have to look into a replacement fan, at the least, or a new heatsink/fan assembly. Make sure you get one for AM3 (as Intel sockets - usually designated with a number like 775, 1136, etc. - are secured differently.) They can run from cheap to over $100.
