Turn fan on


Fans might be controlled in the bios, so check the bios or system setup.

The fans, if working properly will turn on and off as needed. Unless you are getting a error message about the fan, don't worry about it. Also if the computer runs hot and shuts down, then you might have a fan problem.

I get an HP error message on 2600n printer saying "57 Fan Error". Is it fixable?


57 Fan Error
Turn off then on
The device has experienced a problem with its internal fan.
Turn off the power by using the power switch, wait at least 30 seconds, and then turn on the power and wait for the device to initialize.The fan is not replaceable. Replace the engine.

Simple fix... stop pirating and buy the games.
The message ''An error has occurred'' is a typical message which many users have encountered on their DSi, DSi XL, 3DS and Wii. It happens when either a blocked modchip or flashcart is detected by the console.

Fan quit working on laptop. I've heard conflicting information from stores today about whether or not new computer is needed or this being repairable. When I turn on computer, it says "system fan...


Hi There,

The message that you are getting from your computer system is because the motherboard has got very hot and therefore requires new motherboard and the new fan will come with it. I would buy a new computer instead of repairing this one due to the cost involved.

The answer to your data is yes... your hard drive can taken out and the data copied to another system, or even burned to cd. I would buy an external drive kit from pc shop and instert your drive into it and use it as an external deive on your new laptop.

Please let me know if you need more help.

Regards,

Philip

Here's more info to my problem: Gateway laptop is 4 years old. Now getting message that says "System Fan Error!! !!Please turn off system and checkyour system fan!!" Computer was purchased...


Your CPU fan has failed! your heatsink overheats quickly and then shuts down to protect itself from burning up. Your motherboard is Not the problem, the fan is. This fan can be replaced by any compotent laptop technician. Make sure the tech has access to Gateway or has a source that supplys Gateway parts, as the part must be made for Gateway laptops and your model exactly! 90% of this type of problem can be repaired! Don't let non-techs at Best Buy or any other dept. store tell you your PC is "No Good". Take the time like your doing and do some research the problem before giving your hard earned cash to a 16 year old "Technician/salesman/commision/bonus" person.
If the Harddrive is undamaged and it can be mounted yes, your stuff can be saved to DVD or such. Be prepared though, this type of service can be costly so ask around and get quotes.
