Question about Gateway Bestec ATX-300-12EB3 305w Power Supply (ATX30012EB3) Power Supply

2 Answers

Power supply I have a e machine it was working fine but I felt it running very hot , Yesterday the fans stopped working and my screen went blank. I tried to replace the power supply with the same Bestec ATX 300 same as what was in the computer. I think I hooked it up all right. The light came on in the front and a tiny green light on the mother board came on the fan made a half turn and then nothing. I returned this power supply and got another of the same one. And the same thing happened. Could it be my mother board or a short somewhere? I called gateway and they said must be a bad powersupply but two not working? seems odd to me, Again I am pretty sure I have it all plugged in right. And if it is my mother board and I have to send it out to get fixed. Is there any way I can put my hard drive into another computer to remove private information before I send it out? Any help would be greatly appricated!

Any alarms sounding? Looks like you have a RAM problem. Clean the 'teeth' of the RAM with an eraser and reinsert. When the RAM does not connect properly the machine loses its ability to 'think' so it does not start. The light on the MB and the fan spin says that the power supply is OK.

as i think ur processor over heated. or processor can dos not work fine or heat sink not installed properly. remove heat sink, and use heat sink component (a whithe colour gel. u can buy it any computer accessories shop) use it top of ur processor then attached heat sink. and connect processor fan. before installing heat sink check processor fan. then cleare CMOS by removeing battery (because this problem also can happen wrong frequency setting in CMOS setting).

Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.


The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

My Akira Pedestal Fan stopped working suddenly


the major problem with fans is the bronze bushes that the armature runs in get dry from use and seize on the shaft. IF you are capable get to the bushes and you may find a piece of felt next to the bushes . Put some machine oil into the felt and spin the fan with your finger until it loosens up. Otherwise scrap it

was it hot? the compressor may be overheated and went into shutdown until it cools. it's safety feature if the fan stops or if the airflow is blocked by too much dust. clean the filter, check the fan, and try again. if it's not hot, it's the transformer that powers the main circuit board.

I have a ET1831 and after about 30 minutes the machine shuts off. All programs run fine. Do I have a power supply problem or a mother board problem? How best do I diagnose the problem?


It could be a Power Supply issue or Hot chip condition on the motherboard due to lack of Air Flow for cooling or a problem with the motherboard. The first things I would check for are a Virus and Air Flow. There are a couple of Viruses out there that will do this. Get a can of compressed air and open the case and clear all the air channels and blow the dust out of it. With the case open turn the computer on and make sure the Cooling fan on the CPU works and the fan in the Power supply is working. If the CPU fan is not working replace it. Same with the the power supply fan, you would have to replace the complete power supply if that one is faulty. If your Video card has a fan on it make sure that is working as well. You maybe able to replace that fan if it's not but you may have to replace the video card if it isn't working. That would present you with a situation that the Video shuts down but the rest of the computer stays running. You will also want to check your power saver options and make sure you don't have them set to shut the computer down on time. I use screen savers and Hibernate settings to protect the screen from burn in but rarely actually shut down my computers.

It seems that the power supply unit has gone. If you power it on and nothing happens then obviously the psu has gone. The heat that you felt was the psu overheating because of no fan and hence no ventilation. The noise was of the faulty psu fan that got stuck or did not work and the psu got overheated and got burnt eventually. Please replace it with a new one as a repaired psu may work but you cant rely on it.

Brother intellifax 770 No Power? LCD is blank


I have the same problem: no LCD. Determined that the outlet was fine, but the machine did not respond when unplugging/plugging it in. Support said I needed to take it in for repair. Unplugged it, unscrewed the bottom plate, and found a blown fuse on the circuit board connected to the power cord (needed to gently lift it from its cradle).
