Fan is too loud


Every computer comes built with a processor cooling fan system.
The fan's main function is to keep the processor from overheating.
After long periods of use, processor fans can start to malfunction.
If your eMachines computer's fan is excessively noisy, it will need some maintenance.
If you don't deal with a noisy fan promptly, your computer's processor could overheat and cause significant damage to your motherboard as a result.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.
Power down the computer.
Disconnect all cables and peripheral devices from the computer's back panel.
Rotate the computer so the back panel is facing you. Lay the computer on its left side.
Remove the Phillips thumb screws that fasten the right side access panel to the computer's frame.
Remove the side access panel from the computer to reveal the motherboard and all internal components.
Locate the cooling fan assembly near the center of the motherboard.
Remove all Phillips screws fastening the fan to the motherboard.
Disconnect the fan's power cable from the motherboard.
Then lift the fan out of the computer.
This will reveal the processor chip.
Place the fan on a flat work surface with the label sticker facing upward.
Use a thin, flat-head screwdriver to peel away the label sticker from the fan.
This will reveal the access hole to the fan motor's bearings.
Apply one to two drops of lightweight mechanical oil into the fan motor's bearings.
Replace the fan's label sticker.
Use a can of compressed air to spray the dust and debris from inside the fan blades.
Place the fan back into the motherboard on top of the processor chip.
Replace the retention screws and reconnect the fan's power cable to the motherboard.
Replace the side access panel and its two retention thumb screws.
Place the computer tower vertically, and then reconnect all cables and devices to the computer.

How do i clean my pc


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Most of the maintenance you will do in the course of your desktop PC's life is software-based: adding and removing programs or updating drivers. But from time to time, you may need to clean the inside of your desktop computer. Dust, carpet fibers, hair and smoke can enter the system and clog the cooling fan and other vital components. Close all of your programs and save your work. Click "Start" and "Shut down" to turn off your PC. Then, unplug all of the cables and cords from the back of the tower and move the case to a flat, dry surface where you have room to work. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to clear any static electrical charges from the system. Let the computer cool off for a few minutes before opening it. Use a screwdriver to remove the side panel of your PC, if necessary. Different desktop systems have different ways of being opened. Older systems those made around 2000 usually have a few captive screws on the back that hold the side panels in place. Systems made since 2001 or 2002 are usually a lot easier to open and feature a large release button that, when pressed, allows the system to swing open like a book. Have a close look at your desktop computer, or refer to the user manual if you aren't sure how to open it. You don't need to remove both the left and right panel. For low-profile systems that sit horizontally instead of vertically, remove the top panel assembly as Identify the power supply from the inside. You can look at the back of the computer to see where your AC power plugs in, and then just follow the part inside. The power supply has a fan in the back and extends into your system as a large metal box. Hold the compressed air canister upright and spray compressed air around the power supply and fan, using the extended nozzle. Use the compressed air canister to blow dust and debris out of your system, beginning at the power supply and moving toward the outer edges of the computer. Blow the dust clear of the PC completely. Check the side panels for built-up dust, and wipe the panels clean with a dry paper towel. Reattach the side panels or close the PC, and reconnect it to its cables.

Check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490 Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.

Dell precision T3500 unable to initialize fan controller error


Step 1:
b> WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Every computer comes with its own internal cooling system. Dell workstation desktops are no different. Your computer's cooling system consists of a heat sink and cooling fan. The function of the cooling fan is to regulate the temperature of your computer's processor. If the fan stops working your processor will overheat and cause damage to your motherboard. Fortunately, Dell desktops have a built-in alert system that tells you when your fan stops working.

Shut down your desktop computer. Disconnect the power cable from the computer's back panel. Then disconnect any external devices. Rotate the computer so the back panel is facing you. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) strap to your wrist and its wire clip to the outer casing of the computer. Lay the computer tower on its left side. Press on the side panel release buttons situated on the top and bottom panels. Grasp the side panel and rotate it away from the computer until the internal contents of the computer are accessible. Locate the cooling fan duct near the center of the motherboard. Lift the duct off of the cooling fan so it is in the upright position. Disconnect the fan's power cable from the motherboard. Disengage and remove the retaining clips from each side of the cooling fan assembly. Lift the cooling fan out of the motherboard. Set it aside. Check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490 Use a clean paper towel to wipe the excess thermal grease from the processor's surface. Apply a thin coat of thermal grease to the processor's surface using a cotton swab. This is important; if you skip this step, your processor will fry as soon as you power on your computer. Place the new cooling fan over the processor. Press down on each retaining clip until the cooling fan snaps into place. Connect the fan's cable to the motherboard. Place the air duct back over the cooling fan assembly. Rotate the side access panel downward over the computer's opening. Press down on the side access panel until it snaps into place. Place the computer vertically, and then reconnect all cables and devices to the computer.

I need to remove the front cover


Very easy to do. Just remove one of the side panels or maybe removing both will make your job a lot easier, now you should see some little plastic hooks that come inside of the tower from the front cover, just press them and the front cover should come right off. To reinstall, just press front cover against the holes on the tower.. Let me know if this answers your question and good luck..

Hello, Last night I shut down my Dell E510 desktop - the proper way - by going to the start menu, shut down, turn power off. Then, today, I pressed the power button on the front of my tower and...


This sounds like a definite power issue. This means that the problem could range from being as simple as the power button itself not working/disconnected to the power supply being dead.

Things to try:

1. Have the side of your computer open and press the power button. Notice if any fans start to move or anything that happens.

2. Do you notice the Hard drive light flashing at all when turning on?

3. Has anyone else been using or been close in proximity to the computer that could have bumped it, causing something to come loose?

4. ONLY if you feel competent enough, check the cable connections inside the computer. Make sure to disconnect from the wall for 30 seconds and reconnect before touching any cables inside. Leaving the cable connected allows the computer case itself to act as a ground to prevent static shock.

Good luck!

I need a Compaq Presario 5713 manual on how to open the case .


Typically desktop PCs have 4 to 6 phillips case screws that fasten the outer metal skin to the back of the case chassis. These can be found by looking at the back of the PC and following the skin edge until you find each screw. The screws are typically near the corners and halfway between top and bottom. Once removed, the outer skin will slide back and then lift up. In tower PCs, only the left side (facing the PC) has to come off requiring only two or three screws to be removed. Panel will then slide back and fall away. Reconnecting case or panel may require aligning rails or hooks and sliding towards front. Reapply screws.
