I see why you are here. The website s#@.
It looks like you would remove the on board square and replace it with this because it appeared to snap in. Push down to install. Try not to remove anything if you have 4 holes in your board. What board and processor do you have?

Rate this as a fixya if it fixes your problem.

Where can I get instructions to put unidentified tower together?


You have all the pieces .. motherboard .. cpu .. ram .... heatsink/cpu fan?

Place the cpu into the motherboard socket. Note that it only fits one way. Check the pins on the cpu against the holes in the socket. Hold it in place with the securing catch/lever that you will see on the side.


Smear some heatsink/cpu paste onto the top of the cpu. The heatsink paste is basically a 'heat resistant glue'

Put the cpu cooling fan onto the cpu and screw it into position. Or, it may have a securing lever to hold it in place.

Put the RAM into the ram slots. They only fit one way. Make sure they are firmly in place.

Put the motherboard into the casing. Align what holes you can and use the screws that come with the casing to secure the motherboard.

Connect the casing power supply to the motherboard. Note that it only fits one way.

Connect the cpu cooling fan to the motherboard connector. It only fits one way ..

Next, look at the leads that are just lying loose .. the small female 2 pin connectors will be marked 'PWR' ..'LED'..'RESTART' ... There maybe 8 of them.

On the motherboard identify the block of male 2 pin connectors. The female connectors must connect to them. You'll need good eyes and probably a flashlight, as the writing on the motherboard is small..

If you are connecting a sata hard drive, connect to the motherboard connection that says 0. Connect your dvd drive to '1' Again, notice that sata leads can only fit one way.

Then connect any video or sound cards to the motherboard (if any).
Just look on the motherboard for anywhere the connecting wires will attach. You won't go far wrong.

The casing won't come with instructions of 'what to do' as such. If there were instructions there it would relate to pin/hard drive connections.

What you CAN do is a google search. If, for example, your motherboard is an ASUS 123456 .. search for 'ASUS 123456 motherboard connections'. Or log onto the motherboard manufacturer's website ..

My Pc heats up very soon and then power off itself.


Do you have forced air cooling fans running over the CPU and motherboard? If not then get them running. Check to see if it they are running correctly. Make sure that all the heatsinks are free of dust and any other obstructions – vacuum them out with a soft brush tool. Also monitor the fans speed and CPU tem from the BIOS. Also check that the CPU heatsink is correctly mounted on the CPU and if necessary get some heat transfer grease and cover the top of the CPU ii it making sure it is evenly spread and then reseat the heat sink and secure it firmly. Do not let it fall on the motherboard or CPU pins or socket. Monitor the CPU temperature in the BIOS. You can also invest in a can of freezer spray from an electrical component store and spray areas of the motherboard to see if this helps. Try small areas at a time starting with the CPU & Heatsink. Then try the maim system RAM and then move on to the BIOS chip and NVRAM and then on to the graphics processor or card. If all this fails you may need to replace the CPU.

When I boot the machine it gives me a thermal overheat event msg and shuts down, I believe the thermal contact between the fan and processor has broken, I do not know how to remove the cpu fan and re apply...


Theres many types of sockets for motherboards. If PC clone, search for the book manual for pinpoint wath socket it it or it is a IBM or DELL or HP, the same except the latter is little more tricky when detaching the heatsink. Once figured out, disconect the power, touch the fuselage of the PC to discharge from ESD. Of course, buy a heatsink compound and you can clean the cpu and bottonm of the heatsink with paper towel and Isopropyl Alcohol and apply new compound. Not too much, the nessesary only. I'd like to apply in a whirpool like on the CPU. And the heatcopound color grey is the best.

Intel D865GVHZ (Gateway Hazelton) motherboard system cooling fan


This fan error message shows up when the CPU fan is not plugged into the CPU FAN plug on the motherboard. The Intel D865GVHZ
motherboard has a total of 4-fan plugs so it is easy to plug the CPU fan into one of the other fan plugs that is not marked CPU FAN on the motherboard.
