Hello

In the bios there should be a option for cpu fan operation.Set it for always on.You may need to reinstall your chipset or motherboard drivers also.

How do I access the BIOS settings for the P5LP-LE motherboard. The startup key says to press F1, but pressing F1 does nothing.


The instructions say:
"Hold down the F1 key during the startup process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter/reset any custom BIOS settings." I would also try hitting the F1 key multiple times from the very turn on of the computer because the key may have to register at some point after turning on.

Try clearing the CMOS settings as explained on this page, it should clear out any passwords and will set the BIOS settings back to factory settings.

As for "The CPU fan runs normally on boot, but as soon as the Windows flash screen comes up, the CPU fan slows way down."
This is quite normal. On start-up the temperature of the CPU is not being read, when the flash screen comes up just happens to be the same time that the computer recognizes that the CPU is cold and doesn't need to be cooled.

On the "Then the installation program starts running and the CPU Fan speed starts fluctuating wildly from slow to extremely fast."
This could be normal as when files are read from a DVD the CPU doesn't work hard, but when it unpacks the files or does calculations it does work hard. Or it could be that the thermal paste between the CPU and the heat sink is not correct. Either dry , not making contact, or even too much. If the heat is not being transferred that would also explain the shut-down.

Why HP-p 077tx Laptop Working Slow and Fan RPM Is Maximum?


Is your HP-p 077tx laptop running slowly and making a lot of noise? If so, then it could be overheating.The electrical components in the PC make heat, and fans in the system help move the air to keep the modules from getting too warm. Extra heat will be the reason for fans to run continually, damage modules, and slow the CPU's speed.All of these failures with higher heat and power will cause the program to function slower than normal. If the Fan RPM is extreme all the time, it can be the first hint that your laptop isn't working efficiently. To run your system as cool and effectively as possible, either call at the HP technical support phone number or follow up one or more of the corrective actions given below.

Update your HP laptop BIOS

While computers are released, HP also distributes updated BIOS to manage CPU power loads, fans, and other modules. Before updating the BIOS, make sure that what BIOS version is currently installed on your system. If it's outdated, then update it to the new version available on the HP's official website. For complete information to find new BIOS version and know the instructions for updating your laptop BIOS, consult with the HP technicians to get the necessary help.

Improve the laptop efficiency to reduce heat

If you have various applications running on your system, it functions harder and creates more heat.Decrease the heat amount by improving the laptop efficiency. Here's how to do:

    ·Stop your application from initiating while the system is started.
    ·Close the additional programs if you're not using them.
    ·Disconnect the Internet if you're not surfing the web.
    ·If your laptop gets too hot while playing games, then try to play the game at a lower resolution and with reduced graphics settings.
    Identify corrupt processes using Windows Task Manager

    The regular CPU load can be the reason of heat buildup in the computing device, forcing the fan to work regularly to keep the system at functioning temperatures. Sometimes, corrupt program or malware can cause the heat buildup. A corrupt program can consume CPU time wherever between 1% and 100%. Follow the steps to find corrupt processes that might be making CPU slower.

      1.Save your work and end up all open applications.
      2.Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete keys all at once. Click the 'Task Manager' to reveal the Windows Task Manager window.
      3.Choose the 'Processes' tab, and to specify the processes by CPU load, and then click the CPU column header.
      4.Navigate the list of suspect processes.
      To identify more details about a process, browse the Internet to find the procedure name that shows in the Windows Task Manager. You can also avail tech support for HP laptop and get the suggestions for solving the issues.

      Keep your Laptop air vents clear and clean

      When heat builds up due to the regular use of the system, the fan spins faster to eliminate the excess warm and thus make the noise. HP laptop has vents in the bottom and sides to eradicate heat, letting air flow via the case. If the vents become blocked, the fan can't cool the components correctly. So, clean the dust if you find it out and inside the vents. While using your laptop, put it on a hard, smooth surface to keep the vent areas unblocked.
      Choose power save settings

      Try to choose the power save settings to shut your laptop off while it's not in use. Many operating systems let you change the power settings to turn off the screen while you're not regularly using your system. If you often leave your laptop in between your work, changing the power settings to power off your monitor while it's not being used can let your laptop functioning at a cooler temperature.

Power up laptop dell 1501 ,stays on until you logg on then after log on and programs load all power is lost


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a can of compressed air to do this.

Toshiba 2435 s255 notebook shutsdown and fan runs on high speed


Overheating problem is caused by faulty fan and or the fan and heat-sink assembly is clogged with dust.
When the CPU overheats, it goes into thermal shutdown and won't boot up again until the CPU has cooled down. If this problem is not fixed, eventually the CPU will fail completely. The fan must spin freely, if not replace the faulty fan.
Check the fan and heat-sink and loosen and vacuum/remove the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly. Depending upon the model of your Toshiba, the fan can be accessed from the bottom of the laptop or you may need to remove the keyboard to get at the fan and heat-sink.

It keeps freezing.


Sounds like your is overheating. You might want to make sure your CPU fan is spinning. Another good thing you can do is download a little program called speedfan http://www.filehippo.com/download_speedfan/
this will tell you the internal temp of your processor and hard drives and if your fans are running. If the fans are running and the cpu is staying cool, I would then do a full bios test on the hard drive itself as well as a chkdsk /x through a command prompt on the hard drive (from safe mode). Let me know if these don't resolve the issue.

Asus Laptop freeze after starting


if the fan does not work... don't use the computer till you replace the fan with one that is working.... a good chance you will burn out the cpu. usually thermal shutdown occurs when the cpu gets too hot... you may also want to consider purchasing a notebook cooler....

Pci express slot


Hi dineshcs.
When adding a new graphics card (Your's being a PCI-Express), you must change a bios setting under the title " Advanced " section. Open you're M2N-MX manual & turn to page 2-21. You need to change the boot order for you're graphics to list,
[PEG/PCI]. Change Initiate Graphic Mode Select to [Disable].
These changes stop the onboard graphics card from loading & allow the PCI-Express card to load. The issue of possible motherboard overheating can be caused by many things. Here is a list of things to check.
1). Check the CPU heat-sink fan. Make sure the fan blades are
free from dust build up. Check fan speed in bios (Its RPM will be listed). It should be running a min of 2300 RPM.
2). Also in the bios is Hardware monitor. By booting into the bios go to this & watch the temp of CPU & motherboard. If either is getting too hot suggest you add a side case 3" fan to the system to help lower the CPU & motherboard temp.

Good Luck!
