Compaq presario sr2150nx ata 100 motherboard fan plug

The CPU fan is being detected, but there is a problem with compatability or there is a fault in the fan it's self. Have you tried your original fan?

My gateway is making a rattling sound at start up which last about 15 minutes, them seems to run quite after that.....any ideas ?

It is most likely a fan that is making the noise. It's possible that one of the fans is going bad and needs to be replaced. But sometimes fans will make noise if there is a lot of dust inside the case. You could try opening the case and using one of those compressed air cans to carefully blow the dust out. You can get them for a few dollars at any office supply store.
If you're comfortable opening up the case and replacing a fan, it's not too hard to do once you figure out which fan is making the noise. If you're not comfortable doing it yourself, take it in to a shop and get them to do it for you. It shouldn't cost much.
Right now, it sounds like maybe the fan is having trouble getting started and then when it gets quiet, it's either because the fan settles down and starts running or maybe because it just stops working after trying for a few minutes. Either way, I'd get it taken care of because you don't want it getting too hot inside the case.

Im having trouble burning a cd. it goes through the whole cd and it ejects the cd and says that the disk didnt burn

For $40, buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" device -- much cheaper than paying a qualified technician to try to trouble-shoot, and then make the same "replace it" recommendation.

512 - chassis fan not found 1801 - invalid proccessor, microcode update error

Sorry you are having trouble. This sounds like a serious problem. This model exspects the fan to be running at a certain rpm to boot properly. My guess is that it has stopped turning and needs to be replaced.
Unplug it. Remove the cover. Replace the fan. If you dont feel comfortable inside it then take it to a shop

Loud "whirring" sound

this is the fan. could be the CPU cooling fan or a case fan.
when you hear this sound it means the fan is having trouble spinning around. you can fix this by taking off your side panel and removing dust from your fan/fans, and even adding a little dab of oil like WD40 to there the fan spins round the hub to increase lubrication and remove friction.
Though this may help, its always a sign that the fan is not healthy and will eventually need replaced.
Hope this helps

Dell Dimension 4600 Cpu Fan replacement help

I know that there are many of these types of system boards out there, What I would do is contact Tiger Direct either in Canada at or in the US at and send the sales team an email - They will usually find anything that you need and have very quick and reasonable shipping rates.

Give that a try and see if it works for you.

I need to replace the cooling fan and heatsink on my Gateway ML6720. I'm having trouble finding the part. If I can find it, can you tell me how to replace it?

The best thing you can do is replace the fan itself with a like kind of shape and size. I usually do this by going to a computer store with the old fan and matching it up with the ones they have in stock, or measure the size in milimeters and buy one on line. The fan is held on by 4 screws and it is much easier than trying to remove the heat-sink and take the chance of damaging the motherboard. You can just screw the new fan to the old heat-sink and you are done, plug it in and insure the fan is blowing in the right direction and you are done. Good Luck, RAC

AX4SPE-UN doesn't enter CMOS


It might seem like you are having a problem with your harddrive. It might have failed or maybe some cabling got loose. I would first try to check the cables connected to your harddrive and make sure they are securely connected. If this doesn't help then the hardrive might be dead, and you need to get a replacement.

Hope this helps.
