Sony Vaio VGN-CR120E Cooling Fan Heatsink make some noise


Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

If it is it will have to be re-seated.

If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)

DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)

Be careful about how much you put on

Here are
some basic instructions

Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

It could be an overheating computer as that would cause the symptoms you describe.

Fan sounds like it taking off when downloading and surfing alot of pages and doing maintance its a dell otiplex gx280


Hello,

Open your machine while its running and check the power supply fan. The CPU fan will speed up to try and make up for the power supply fan that is not running. Both fans are temp controlled so if one is not working the computer will overheat and cause the other fan to speed much faster than it should run. You need to check it quick because overheating will damage the motherboard, hard drive and cpu.

Hp a 620n pc freezing up????


It does sound like an overheating computer they are designed nowadays to shut themselves down if there is a problem

What you should do is check the fan assembly and if it is loose at all that would give good reason to do what I am going to advise.

Disconnect the fan from the board.

Check your manual for the exact instructions but you should remove the cooler completely

DO NOT REMOVE THE CPU

Now with nothing more than isopropynol and cotton bud sticks or another alcohol based cleaner remove the old thermal grease / sticker from the top of the CPU (make sure it is clean)

At this point it is up to you but you could consider a newer better cooler
You could take your old cooler to a good computer shop show them it and just ask for a better one

If you are using your original cooler then here we go
Do the same with the underside of the cooler.
While the cooler is off it may be worth giving it a good 8low job
.
Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on

Here are some basic instructions

Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

Another consideration is that many cases have places in them for extra fans and usually extra connections on the motherboard too.

They are quick and easy to fit.

Quite often I will fit TWO in what is called a push/pull configuration. One pulls cool air in while the other pushes hot air out.

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.

Gateway gt4016 problem


Check your monitor on another computer. If it is ok connect it to your bad computer. Open the CPU case and unplug all the data cables and power cables to HDD, floppy and cd/dvd. Remove keyboard and mouse. also remove pci cards if any. You didn't mention about video card. I guess it is onboard. Now put it on an see. If nothing happens blame the motherboard.

Mesh Matrix 64 start up problem


First there is an on off switch on the back of your power supply. Switch that off. Take out the memory chips, then re-insert them. Turn power switch back on. With the case still open. Power it up. If it comes on. Look to see if the cpu fan is still running. If it is not turning replace the fan. If it runs you may have other problems, possibly a power supply, CPU overheating, and or switch problems. Now in other cases high end video adapters tend to overheat and causes system freeze ups and causes possible shut downs. I would still have it checked out professionally if the problem persists. Hope this helps
