Asus fan problem

I was sitting in my house and in some moment i hear that the cpu starts to make noise and what happened is took it apart and checked what could be the problem. On one of the cards there is a small box about the size of the QWAS keyboard keys. and on top of it or inside of it there is a fan which is making all this noise,i seem to get it to stop if i touch and let go ,but it does the same after a while. I thought i could get some software maybe the fan control 4.30 ,but it is not supported by my card I Think,but not positive. and then i tried asus smart doctor which is not supported with my card either. So pleas if someone is able to define what to do .... Thanks in advance

    I could not stand the noise and what i did was, i disconnected the fan from the board and dis attached it by
    ejecting the plastic pins which are a push in and out type.
    After un mounting the fan i started to unscrew it piece by piece and came to a point where the fan is connected with the base element.
    I noticed that there are stickers on each side ,and took them right off having hope that there will be a screw to take it apart.The way it is put together is,it is tapped on a pin similar as the one in a clock centre . I dropped a drop of vegetable oil inside and tangled the fan cleaned around the the whole thing ,put it back together and seems to be going OK,i wonder for how long.I bee hoping that it was worth my work.

Actually this is a common problem on ASUS boards with a chipset fan. The fan begins to wear out and starts making a noise that is intermittent at times. The only real solution is to replace the fan which requires the motherboard to be taken completely out of the case. An alternate solution would be to disconnect the fan BUT you run the risk of overheating the chipset. My experience, however, is unless you are using your computer to its extremes, you won't cause any damage. Note, that is my experience and you do so at your own risk but like I've said I have never had a problem with that at all.

Asus g51j overheating

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the 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 with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

I can hear a sound

If this is a sound coming from within the laptop, I suggest it be taken apart by a computer technician and either the CPU cooler be replaced or it needs to be cleaned of dust. Laptop noise from inside is not a good thing, it should be relatively quite. However some-times you will hear the CPU fan speed up to cool the processor and then quite down again.

Asus Laptop freeze after starting

if the fan does not work... don't use the computer till you replace the fan with one that is working.... a good chance you will burn out the cpu. usually thermal shutdown occurs when the cpu gets too hot... you may also want to consider purchasing a notebook cooler....

Cpu fan noisy/chip fan fail error messages


Yes. This sounds like a fan issue. The noise often comes from bearings failing within the fan. Also, a failing bearing can make things harder on the motor as it brings the fan up to speed. This is likely the reason that you see increased warnings during the fan speed check while booting because it comes to speed more slowly as bearing wear increases.

I give this a 90% chance that your CPU fan is causing the issue. Since a decent CPU fan will cost you ~$20 online, it's not much out of your pocket if you happen to uncover another culprit.

I'll keep an eye on this post. Let me know how things go.

Cpu fan noisy /chip fan fail

You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.

Hope that fixed ya...

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.
