The motherboard appears to have power, the cpu fan operates, but the pc does not boot at all. I have applied new thermal paste between the CPU and its associated heatsink. To no avail.. I have checked and re-checked the hard-drive in use with other pc's, it has been shown to be operational. If anyone actually receives these problems... HeLp !! Thanks

Does not boot, no beep, no display, fans running on high speed


Try blowing the dust out of the inside, around the vents, around the fans and by the cpu and heat sink.

Also remove the fan as it sits on the cpu and heat sink. Then remove the heat sink that sits on the cpu, then remove the cpu by releasing the latch on the side of the bay it sits in (remember how the cpu goes back into the bay). Now clean off the old dried up thermal paste on top of the cpu and on the heat sink that sits on the cpu. Put the cpu back into the bay and secure the latch. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste to the CPU and Heat Sink. Put everything back together then reboot.

If the thermal paste has dried or is too thin to keep the unit cool it's like metal touching metal and shorts out the system so it can't boot.

Emachines t5212 overheat message then shuts down


Three causes of ovheating:
1) Dust. Dust inside the computer, Dust around the vents, fans, cpu and heat sink. Take a can of compressed air and clean the dust out of the computer.

2) A Fan not working. Make sure the fan inside the Power Supply where you plug the power cord in works. Also there is a fan that sits on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. Make sure it works. Normally the system will give you an error message if the fan is not working.

3) Thermal Paste - The Thermal Paste around the cpu and heat sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink.

Shut down during boot


Sounds like a cpu overheat situation. Check the cpu temps in the bios and compare the temps with the maximum operating temp of your particular cpu. It might need better/or/new cpu thermal paste applied to your cpu, and also check that your cpu fan is running and locked down tight (and not loose)

Installed new motherboard, but system would not boot. What is the problem. Did not receive a manual with motherboard at time of purchase.


Hello Dch,

After replacing the mother board if the system is not booting up then check the power connections on the mother board. The wires of power, restart buttons are properly connected to the motherboard. Also check the thermal grease which is used between cpu fan and cpu. If the thermal grease gets dried then clean the grease and apply the 2 drops of new thermal grease and properly lock the cpu fan.

HI ker7758 ,

You may need to apply "Thermal paste/grease " to the CPU.

You can watch this video tutorial from Youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7rPqCvCt0g

There are different types of thermal grease. You don't have to buy the expensive ones. The cheapest on the market should be able to do the job.

System is saying that CPU fan has failed and shuts system down. I just replaced the fan and heat sync it is still saying this.


Thermal paste is applied between the heatsink and the cpu heat spreader or die. If you removed the heatsink to replace the fan you should have applied new thermal paste to the cpu or you may have burned it up. Try clearing the bios like dageezer said. Look for a jumper pin near the onboard battery to clear the cmos.

Theres many types of sockets for motherboards. If PC clone, search for the book manual for pinpoint wath socket it it or it is a IBM or DELL or HP, the same except the latter is little more tricky when detaching the heatsink. Once figured out, disconect the power, touch the fuselage of the PC to discharge from ESD. Of course, buy a heatsink compound and you can clean the cpu and bottonm of the heatsink with paper towel and Isopropyl Alcohol and apply new compound. Not too much, the nessesary only. I'd like to apply in a whirpool like on the CPU. And the heatcopound color grey is the best.

To solve the thermal heat problem
1. Apply heat paste pound inbetween the processor and motherboard.

Pentium D problem


Hi oilian,
Be glad it did shut down. If it didn't, your new CPU could haveover heated. There are a few reasons for a CPU to over heat.
1.) There is no thermal grease or too little on the heat-sink assembly.
2.) The old thermal grease was not removed or the old thermal tape was not removed.
3.) The heat-sink assembly was not cleaned completely with alcohol before applying new thermal grease.
4.) The CPU fan is running too slowly.
5.) The heat-sink fins are possibly filled with dust build-up & the CPU fan can not cool the heat-sink assembly. Boot to the bios & go to Hardware Monitor. There you can check voltage, CPU fan speed, CPU temp & other bios monitored settings.

Good luck oilian!
