The only way to fix it without basically replacing the whole computer would be to replace the CPU cooler but that might not even be possible. You can try cleaning out the case to get rid of the dust. In any case the CPU has to work harder to decode the video which will cause it to heat up which in turn causes the cooling fan to spin faster.

If you're not getting a beep code then you can be almost certain the problem does not lie with any of your hardware aside from your CPU.

It is possible your CPU is overheating, in which case you can try to increase the fan speed in the CMOS setup. For further troubleshooting I recommend using isopropyl alcohol to remove the old thermal paste from the heatsink and CPU die, and apply a new, small, pea-sized dab of thermal paste to the CPU die (after which you remount and lock into place the heatsink and CPU fan).

Sometimes these startup problems are very simple, and since you said the fan slows down rather than stopping, it could simply be you have a loose connection somewhere. I'd start with the PSU cables for the motherboard and CPU, and then the fan-monitoring plugs on the motherboard.

Also, it never hurts to load the default CMOS setup, and if you have any expansion cards you'll want to reseat all of them.

How do I watch videos from off my computer on my pandigital because it won't let me?


Copy them to a USB stick and watch the movie from the USB stick. Or set up your computer to "Stream" music and video. Then , as long as your Pandigital is part of the same "Homegroup" or "Workgroup" , you will be able to "share" your movies and music. Both Devices must be set up to share the information on each other.

What website i can watch free movie?


Depends on what kind of movies you are looking for but I like www.veehd.com. There are others out there but in most cases you will not be able to watch movies that are fairly new because of copyright and use issues.

From your description I would hazard a guess based on 32 years of experience that you have a power supply problem. It will need to be replaced. You may want to invest $35 in a UPS (uninterrupted Power Supply) system

It is possible this is caused by overheating. Check the power supply fan first, probably in the back of your computer tower. Do you feel any airflow? If so, the next thing to check would be the CPU fan/heat sink. Many motherboards have a temperature gauge software nowadays, or you can download one for free online to see how hot your CPU is running.

2 Possible solutions:
  1. Replace Power Supply if there is no air flow.
  2. Put in a new Processor Heatsink/Fan

Shuttle X PC - HD + Power LEDs briefly illuminate, no boot.


It sounds like you have a bad power supply. It will store up a very small amount of energy (enough to run some LED lights) but not enough to power up the system. That's where I would look. If that is not the problem, then I would look to the capacitors on your motherboard. Good Luck!

Fan noise


It depends on your CPU. As far as I know, some Pentium 4 has it - Enhanced Intel speedstep Technology. If your CPU supports it, you need to enable it in the BIOS. Good luck.
