There is a lever to the side of the cpu. You pull it up, this releases the cpu. CAREFULLY pull out the cpu straight up, noting it's orientation.

Does not boot, no beep, no display, fans running on high speed


Try blowing the dust out of the inside, around the vents, around the fans and by the cpu and heat sink.

Also remove the fan as it sits on the cpu and heat sink. Then remove the heat sink that sits on the cpu, then remove the cpu by releasing the latch on the side of the bay it sits in (remember how the cpu goes back into the bay). Now clean off the old dried up thermal paste on top of the cpu and on the heat sink that sits on the cpu. Put the cpu back into the bay and secure the latch. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste to the CPU and Heat Sink. Put everything back together then reboot.

If the thermal paste has dried or is too thin to keep the unit cool it's like metal touching metal and shorts out the system so it can't boot.

Emachines t5212 overheat message then shuts down


Three causes of ovheating:
1) Dust. Dust inside the computer, Dust around the vents, fans, cpu and heat sink. Take a can of compressed air and clean the dust out of the computer.

2) A Fan not working. Make sure the fan inside the Power Supply where you plug the power cord in works. Also there is a fan that sits on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. Make sure it works. Normally the system will give you an error message if the fan is not working.

3) Thermal Paste - The Thermal Paste around the cpu and heat sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink.

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.

PC turns on and off many times on its own. Can not keep it on long enough to use the recovery disks


Hello there,

Initially this problem can be an "overheat"on the PC. The CPU has encountered excessive heat and that's why the unit always restart. This is very common on PC problem like yours.

Better to clean the unit for any dust and dirt inside. You may use a compressed air to clean out the cpu. Also make sure that you have remove the dirt on the CPU fan heat sink, and that's why it will not give a proper air cooling inside the processor.

Let me know here again for further instructions.

My heat sink got dirty and caused a thermal event alarm (overheated) the computer will shut down when the cpu is taxed. do i need a new cpu


No, if the computer will start and it run bios screen and boots into windows
the cpu is fine, you need to get a better cpu cooler.

Buy a better cpu cooler for your socket, coolers are designed for the Socket that the processor plugs into.

Go to Newegg.com and llok for a cooler, you will see reviews by people
and if they liked the cooler, there are little eggs next to the product
is it has high ratings, you will see what I mean when you look at the site.


The page I posted is already on the cooler page, just llok to the left side
and look at sockets and pick your socket out to look at coolers for your system.

Bios reports "shut down due to overheating". Will then randomly shut down (hard). After each start-up will shutdown anywhere between 10-200 seconds. Can MB or chip be saved? Reset thermal trip (ie....


I had this problem crop up. Dust was the culprit, the CPU heat sink was a giant dust bunny. I removed the fan (held by 2 clips), removed the four screws holding the heat sink and pulled that. Then used a small shopvac to thoroughly clean everything out then reassembled. Works fine now.

Cpu fan shows error and shuts down


if it shows that ..there are 2 possibilities.....first the fan is out ..and you need to replace it ...or to fix ..if it is a fixable problem ...or you have to go to bios and click on the factory defaults...to get rid of any heat limits that the CPU may have in settings ...
do not worry ...it is actually stoping cause by default if the fan do not work ....the computer is stoping to avoid over heating ...
the same if it is in all functions ...and have a limitation of temperature...and it is set too low ...and gets to it quick ..and shuts downs...
so ...first restore bios to factory defaults...and click f10 to store changes...
if it still doing the same ...replace the fan cause it is damaged...

I need fan/heat sink anchors for 775 cpu. nylon tips broke off letting fan pull away from cpu can I buy the anchors only. desk pc is custon built.


If you have another heat sink laying around, perhaps in an old computer you don't use? Try using the anchors from that.

I have also had success mounting fans to heat sinks using wire ties. Not sure that will work with your problem though because it seems you're talking about the actual gadget (usually a piece of metal) that locks the heat sink down onto the CPU.

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.
