    Serial wont help much. Can you tell me what brand and type of computer you have.
    The CPU fan depends on ur CPU socket size.

SOURCE: CPU fan not working computer

Its possible that the Motherboard connector for the fan is not putting out power. there are CPU fans that use a standard 4pin Molex connector, that is what I would suggest you use.

I have a gateway one zx6900 cooling fans make a lot of noise. How do i fix this?


Replace the FAN. You cannot FIX these. REASON> The fan motor generally turns on a ball bearing or oil impregnated sleeve. These tend to dry or wear down from use or age.
They are low cost devices and replacement is the only way to go.

My gateway mx laptop gets so hot you can fry an egg on it and the fan runs all the time and shuts down when its hit its hottest what can be done about this i have to shut it off or the fan will still...


When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this 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 withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

Can I replace the CPU fan on my Gateway 2625


Yes you can as long as you know how to take it apart. There are no user access compartments like the RAMs, to remove it without taking the whole thing apart.

When i boot up the laptop i get a message 'Main Fan Error' the fan runs on start up then stops just before i get the error message. Fan will not restart... Joseph


Hi,

This message means that the fan on your CPU (processor) is failing or has failed. This is not good because if the fan on the CPU fails your CPU will overheat and cause your machine to lock up and become non-functional till it cools down and then the same cycle will repeat till the fan is replaced.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Compaq presario cpu cooling fan will not start spinning unless "helped" with tip of pen to spin over.If I dont start it manually,I get No cpu fan message,and shut down.I just replaced fan,as old had broken...


If the CPU fan speed is too slow or not working at all, the computer will shut itself off automatically to prevent damage to CPU from overheating. You may end up having to throw more money at the problem and get a new fan. I went to Compaq's web site, looked up your particualr computer, found out what type of fan you needed, and I did some research. I recommend getting the fan in the following link. It's very cheap, and has good reviews. The other fans on the site all have bad reviews. Hope this helps.

Most CPU fans come with the heatsink. Try not to buy a fan that comes with a grill over it. That slows the fan down & makes the fan work harder.

Good luck!

Fan Noise on Dell Dimension 8100


All computer fans have a general design.  The name in front of "fan" really refers to the designation.  You'll see case fan, processor fan, CPU fan, cooling fan, etc.  In the case of CPU/Processor fan, some are sold with heatsinks (the metal block sitting on top of your CPU).

The first thing you want to do is make sure the fan is clean.  Chances are dust buildup is causing the excess noise.

If that's not the case and you're looking to replace the fan, then you first need to find out the size of the fan. General sizes(diameter X width in mm) are listed on this page:

http://www.svc.com/case-fans.html

Generally, you're looking for something that will match the size of what you're replacing & push enough air at a reasonable noise level to cool the heatsink/CPU.  You want to stay in the area of 30dBA max for noise.  You also want to see if it has a 3-pin or 4-pin connection.

For example, if you have an 80mm fan, I would suggest something like this:

http://www.svc.com/saf-b82-19.html

It's pretty quiet with good airflow.  Also, it has a 3-pin connection, but includes an adapter for a 4-pin connection.
