How to remove fan from gateway dx4200


for replacing the fan you must open computer case unplug all power cords, remove 4 screws near the rear fan and pull out the power supply from the top interior. then you have at leat more 4 screws to remove the power supply cover out. then you will see the other 4 screws to remove the fan. if you just simply want to clean the fan open the computer case go to outside, take an air compressor and blow air into the fan and at the rear od the power supply on the air intake and you are done.

Being no test beep, I'm saying motherboard. Try removing & replacing ram sticks to see if it boots. Other problems may be simply a bad power supply. Did you test the video with a vid card another vid port? Might want to try that first. It could be you lost the video.

NO Post test beep.- no boot screen


Could be a dead PSU, mother board or CPU to me.

First check the power source, are all connections good and switches on.

Assuming so, are there any led's lit anywhere on the tower when you turn it on or any fans turning other than the PSU fan.

If there are no fans, including the PSU, then the PSU has failed, if there are fans and led's lit then turn it off, remove power source, remove the cover and check whether the PSU is properly connected to the mother board properly (Large multi-pin plug) if it is connected properly,

After this, you need proper test equipment.

How do i install the cooling fan for a gateway 702ge


Assuming we are talking about a case fan, bring out a flashlight and possibly a magnifying glass, and start sweeping your main/motherboard, every place you see free pins or connectors there will be a tiny white text next to it on the circuitboard. Fan connector should be between 2 and 4 pins, and be labeled "CASE FAN 1/2" or similar.

Secondly secure the fan itself using either metal screws or anti vibration rubber screws, and you can mount it anywhere it fits / where the power cable allows it to go.

Bare in mind the direction of the airflow when positioning the fan, note that it is generally better to have more fans sucking air into the case than blowing out, creating a higher pressure inside the case and thus preventing dust from getting sucked in & clogging small openings like unused USB ports and most of the media ports on PC back side.

Gateway 831GM Eratic Fan Noise


Hi,

This can be caused by several things:

1. Bad temp sensor
2. Bad voltage, but that will usually cause the whole system to restart
3. Too low maximum temp setting inside the chassis(setting is in bios), often denote as max case temp.

One way to bypass the problem is rig the fan to a molex adapter with a variable voltage molex to 2/3/4pin fan connector and adjust the speed to the maximum quiet setting.

The 831's did run a bit warm so if the case temp setting is set to low it will fluxuate quite a bit. Try adjusting the max case temp up around 50c just to see if that does it, if it does either use the variable voltage dial solution or add a second case fan that's always on, prefferably a low RPM running direct off molex so it will reduce the average temp and therby the need of the monitored case fan to rev up.

Fan makes loud noise after computer warms up. I do not want to purchase a new power supply. Can and where can I purchase a new fan and can I easily inststall it?


If you open the case, it is doubtful you can touch the fan blade. They mostly are at the back of the case within the silver power supply. If you can touch the blades, it is most likely a case fan you have a problem with. They cost about $10.
If it IS the power supply, you can get one for about $35. I don't know where you live, but any computer store should be able to sell you a new case fan or power supply fan.
One thing you need to be sure of, though, is if it matches what Gateway has installed. They are known for installing hardware made especially for them and generic hardware may not fit in their case.
In that case, Google is your friend--type in the part that you need and your computer model and you'll find what you need.
If you go to a computer store, take the defective part in with you to match it.

Usually this is a classic lamp problem, but it could also relate to a defective lamp ballast (power supply).

Now if you are replacing lamps frequently, it's likely the lamp isn't getting enough airflow to keep it cool. If you don't get the airflow issue solved it will take out the thermal safety fuse near the lamp and your set won't come on and the power light will blink red 6 times repeating itself until you unplug it. Some lamp fans are so deeply nested it takes a trained tech to get them out. Dusty environments are bad for TV's with fans in them, especially projection types.
