Question about Gateway GT4022 PC Desktop
The fans are controlled by the bios, There is a temp sensor that tells the bios the temprature of 1. The Proccessor, and 2. the board. This all depends on the options of your board ofcourse. When the temp sensor says it getting warm, the fan RPM's are increased to push more air. If you replace one of these fans, make sure it has 3 leads. 2 are for power and one is the RPM sensor that tell the bios if it's running or not. On some of the old motherboards you could set the setting by going in to the bios. I beleive they are all locked now but you can still see them to check if they are running or not, or if its getting hot. You might want to check to see if its getting hot. if it is, move it to a cooler location and check again.
