    shuts down after one hour,found that the fan is not working, opened and cleaned dust of cooling fins, but cannot remove fan because the fan plug will not slide under chassis support. might have to remove plug from connecting wires.after i put everything sack the computer light goes one but no display and no hard drive sound. i wasw very carefull in puting back the processor so i can not see that it might have been damaged.

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.

I have a fan error on startup and pc shutdown


This might have to do with how the fan is being connected for power...if it is not connected to the motherboard and you are using some sort of controller....then you have to go into the BIOS (Setup) settings and tell it to stop monitoring the fan in question. All this is assuming that the fan in question is working!

Hi, I have an HP Pavilion a367c and the CPU fan is making a lot of noise. The noise comes and goes but "go" periods have been getting shorter :( . I think the bearings are dying. It looks like a typical...


I was going to say dust is whats causing it but then i relized you have opened your computer. So nevermind that.

The fan speed is controlled by the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor tells your motherboard how hot it is. so then the motherboard turns up the fan faster. Thats why its louder when the CPU is doing alot and is quieter when its doing nothing. You can try replacing the fan yourself but i would recommend just getting a whole new heatsink.

they are cheap! I would recommend the thermaltake one.

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.
