This is strange. It is very likely that since the ram went bad and you replaced it , and now the fan does not work it is a very good indication that you might be in need of a new computer. If you are able to , see if you can replace the fan yourself and go from there, otherwise your computer may have seen the light above :)

dude- all the wholes in your pc closed off??? if so then your fan what is it barring or magnetic? if it is baring then you will need to replace... my guess it is.. if it were magnetic it would just stop PERIOD...the fan isn\'t spinning enough ( high enough rpm\'s) to keep a constant flow at the rate in which the CPU needs or heat sink needs....you should have a diags in or with in your bios....run those it\'ll tell you what it is at or what it should be at... you can make decision then.... if your fan isn\'t running then just replace fan. If fan is running and your diags isn\'t loaded or doesnt have the utility ...you will need to swapp the fan from a good working PC or buy a new one.. if you STILL have issue thn your problem lays with in the power supply... it is either your MAIN power supply or it is your motherboard (12v) then you will need another mother board. hope this helps!!!!



P.S. is your fan clean heat sink clean?????

Compaq presario C 700 fan runs non stop


Make sure the air vents are clear when it is operating, also use a can of compressed air to blow out the dust from the vents and fan. This should make it cool more efficiently and the fan shouldnt run as much afterward.

Dimension 3000: P4@2.8GHz. NOISY - alway has been. Want to remove green shroud permanently, add quiet 80mm thermistor-controlled fan to CPU stock heatsink (without exciting a BIOS temp alarm), replace...


As for the green shroud, I would not recommend removing it. The computer case is designed to correctly circulate the air through the system and safely out. As for replacing the fans you can replace them with anything you like, just make sure the new fans are the same dimensions they come in szies 40, 60, 80, 92, 120, 140 and a newer 200 mm form factor so you can just measure them if you don't know the correct size. Next look at where the fans plug in, if it is a three pin plug then they fan's are kept at optimal speeds via the motherboard and bios. So they are already controlled by heat sensors / thermostat so to speak. If they are 2 pin then they just run full speed usually. For the back fan just make sure it is the right size and pin out. You can hook a 3 pin fan to a 2 pin fan plug on the board it will just run full speed all the time. For the CPU fan buy a combo fan/ sink and just make sure the sink is the same as the existing one so it will fit on the motherboard. You could probably get rid of the green shroud if you went with a really high end fan / sink for the CPU but that's up to you. For the thermal paste it is easiest to put a small blob in the center of the CPU and then use a plastic card, such as a drivers license to spread it out to cover the entire CPU, thinly and evenly. Add small amounts if you need to to cover the entire surface. Try not to have a bunch oozing out the sides although it won't really hurt if it is.

Dell Inspiron Fan running constantly and very loud. Can I replace with Quieter Fan? If so, what fan model and Who would you suggest have replace it? Or are there other options? This is driving me...


Stock fans tend to be very loud. If this is a laptop your probably SOL on finding a compatible replacement. If this is a desktop then just buy the same dimensions or just by the fan/heat sink combo's of the same size.
From looking up the fan in question I'd say this is a laptop and there isn't much you can do about it

My fan is not running


Which fan is not running? Case fan, CPU fan, PSU fan? CPU fans will cause the computer to shutdown automatically usually with in a few seconds of boot. If it isn't running at all, simply replace it. They are measured in milometers 40, 60 , 80, 90, 120 and some 200mm form factors. Just replace with the same size fan size and you should be up and running again.

Compaq Presario X6000 middle fan not running when connected to system board. removed and tested and it works. Why is not getting power from board?


What middle fan are you talking about?
The case fan?
There should be at least two power connectors on the motherboard for a case fan. Try another.
It would be really unusual for the power connector to fail. Perhaps there is a loose wire in the fan connector that comes loose when you try to connect it to the motherboard.

sounds like a burnt up fan so you might just want to take it to your local computer tech have them replace the fan and put some new cpu compound in their and it will never over heat again
