It sounds like the fan bearing is shot, I'd recomend not using the computer until fan is replaced.
yes it is possible to replace the fan, i would recomend that you replace it with an aftermarket cooler. all you need is what kind of CPU you have, then find out what kind of socket it is, from there you can find the cooler you would like.

Is ABIT SG-71 a Pentium 4 motherboard and what are the specs, the does and donts


The ABIT SG-71 is an Intel Socket 478 that could take a Pentium 4 or Celeron CPU (533/400MHz) designed for the 478 socket. It could support up to 2 GB of DDR 333 memory.

This motherboard may not be worth putting in a new CPU; it is over 10 year old technology. It's very old and slow compared to even two year old CPU and motherboard options.

(if you do want to replace the CPU, remove the old hardware. Use extreme care not to bend any pins on the CPU. Add new thermal paste to the top of the CPU and then put on the heatsink. Connect the CPU fan to the CPU fan header.)

My cpu fan's speed is very high. i will produce too much noice. can i reduce my fan's speed?? if i reduced that then what happened?? is there any problem???? for that i had gone through the bios setting....


This does sound extremely like an overheating problem.

There are two parts to fixing this problem.
First is to take th side off the computer and check for dirt build up around the fan and power supply.

Disconnect first.

If you see a build up then get yourself a can of compressed air for cleaning computers and then take the unit outside.
Now with the nozzle on the can and whilst wearing glasses spray all the builds up out of there. DON'T poke the nozzle inside anything.

Now look at the cooler first. Computer are designed nowadays to shut themselves down if there is a problem or speed up the fans.

What you should do is check the fan assembly and if it is loose at all that would give good reason to do what I am going to advise.
Disconnect the fan from the board.
Check your manual for the exact instructions but you should remove the cooler completely

DO NOT REMOVE THE CPU

Now with nothing more than isopropynol and cotton bud sticks or another alcohol based cleaner remove the old thermal grease / sticker from the top of the CPU (make sure it is clean)

At this point it is up to you but you could consider a newer better cooler
You could take your old cooler to a good computer shop show them it and just ask for a better one

If you are using your original cooler then here we go
Do the same with the underside of the cooler.
While the cooler is off it may be worth giving it a good 8low job
.
Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on

Here are some basic instructions

Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.
If everything went to plan you should now be back in business.

Another consideration is that many cases have places in them for extra fans and usually extra connections on the motherboard too.
They are quick and easy to fit.
Quite often I will fit TWO in what is called a push/pull configuration. One pulls cool air in while the other pushes hot air out

System Reboot Problem


P4 procs are nasty little buggers.....all it takes is one bent pin or a loose pin that looses its connection with the socket and all hell breaks loose. When you replaced the processor and heatsink, did you aplly a thin layer thermal paste to the proc? Look very close at the proc and make sure all the numbers are the same. Will the pc load into safe mode?

I have a K7VZA motherboard when i turn power on


The very first thing you need to do is unplug all drives inc power.
Now remove as many add in cards as you can without compromising the system.

Try to boot at that point.
If it boots re-connect each piece of hardware one at a time until you find one that causes a problem.
Double check that item for any issues and replaces if needed.

If you have had the fan off the cpu for any reason then you should have cleaned both the cooler fan underside and the top of the CPU and put fresh thermal grease made for that purpose on there. DO NOT use too much as that is almost as bad as too little.

Is the fan the correct type eg motherboard takes 3 pin and fan is 4 pin ?

Make sure it is connected to the CPU FAN pins on the board and not system fan.

If you have another computer and the fan can be removed from the cooler itself you could plug it into the system fan port of another computer to try it out.

under no circumstances should you run a system without the CPU cooler running as it could cause irreparable damage to the CPU

Cpu fan


no, the fan is for a socket 775 cpu, you have a socket 478 cpu so the bracket will be different

Finding a cpu cooler replacement for motherboard with screwholes.


You should be able to purchase a cooler that fits your existing cooler plate.
Replacing a cooler can sometimes be a lot of work. Sometimes you have to remove the motherboard from the case and remove the cooler plate from the underside of the motherboard. Then coolers that use "just the holes" can be used. Or another (different) cooler plate can be installed that may have came with your new cooler. In my experience, the coolers that use "just the holes" (no plate) leave a lot to be desired. Plus, if you're not careful, you can damage the motherboard by applying too much force when installing the fan. If you use a new plate, don't forget to install the insulator between the motherboard and the plate, if it comes with one.
Be careful to protect against unwanted electrostatic discharge. Always touch the metal computer case before touching any parts inside the computer. Also, if you remove the mobo, take careful note of where all the wires go before disassembly.

Selling a motherboard and am not sure whether it is 1.6 gh or 2gh


yes there is a name and type number on your motherboard type in this at google and you will find al the specific data, but your clockspeed is controlled by your processor, so perhaps take the cooler off clean proccessor with a little of alcohol and read what is says.

How to change


Hi

Replacing the heatsink fan on a PC is not a difficult job, but it pays to be thorough, especially with cleaning the top of the CPU die before replacing the fan.

Don't be mean with money when choosing a new cooler either. With CPU coolers you get what you pay for. I personally always use coolers from a company called Zalman.

Ok ..with that out of the way ..the basics are ...remove old cooler..

They are either held on by a sprung clip that fits across the cooler and locates in lugs on the cpu socket surround, or they are held by screws that go through the motherboard.

Clean the top face of the cpu die carefully making sure to use a blunt implement ..... scratches on the machined face will lead to premature failure due to overheating.

If the cooler you buy has a "thermal pad" stuck to the face of the heatsink, then remove this too and clean up the heatsink face. Use good quality thermal paste on the top face of the CPU die, then fit the new cooler. Getting the right amount of thermal paste is a bit of an art .... too much is a bad as too little. The paste is NOT a glue. The paste simply fills in any imperfections on the machined surfaces of the cpu die and the heatsink to aid heat transfer.

Does this sound complicated? It isn't really. The key is not to rush it and make sure the surfaces are completley clean and the thermal paste applied correctly.

Here is a link to one tutorial on fitting cpu coolers that you might find useful:

P4 ugrade required


Sadly you wont find any 1066Mhz FSB processors for the Socket 478. The best you can find is the 3.4Ghz with 800Mhz FSB. It might be cheaper and also better value for you to get a Socket 775 based motherboard and Core2 Duo processor. The value range E2160/2180 processors or the E4300/4400 processors have been tested to be even faster than the Socket 775 Pentium Dual 3.4Ghz and they also use less power.

An article on socket 478 for you http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20040123103754.html

I have a Boot Problem with my INTEL P4 3.0Ghz. 800Mhz FSB,1M L2 Cache, Socket 478 CPU


I have experienced something similar with my new Core2Duo processor and a fairly new Socket 775 processor. Troubleshooting it led me to believe the CPU simply wasn't compatible with the motherboard. Although it's a shot in the dark, I suggest that you try out some of the following: - Did you try pulling out the graphics card to see if you got it to POST then? The graphics card or the monitor may need replacing. - Did you remove the RAM? - Are you sure all cables are attached properly? - Try to take out the CPU, talk to a friend with a socket 478 motherboard and replace his CPU with your CPU. Does it work now? If yes, motherboard needs to be replaced.
