Make sure there is no dust covering the computer fan. If necessary use the recovery CD or a new Windows XP CD.

Upgrade HP a1010n Motherboard

Techguru2009: When you upgrade your motherboard, basically you have a new computer. You need to know how your hard/cd drives are connected. Either IDE or SATA. IDE is legacy hardware 80 pin and SATA is the new Thing small connecter. Next is your RAM. There is Dimm, DDR1, DDR2. Find out what your old system was using, or just buy new memory cards, DDR2 is not that expensive. Ask for the manual first read and check what is required, take a list of what your old computer has. I can also help you install everything via chat.

depending on the size of the fan you can probably remove it and take it to your local computer store and have them get you a better one of the same size.
