Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My cooling fan on my mother board start making noise now as soon as you power up the pc it shuts down could it over heat that quickly or did it ruin mother board?


Answers :

If the fan stops working the computer will **** down to protect the CPU from over heating. You might have something coming in contact with fan, if not you will probably need a new fan. Don't run computer without a working fan. mysleuth
It is possible to burn out a processor in a matter of seconds without cooling. Please do not attempt to restart the unit, until you replace the colling fan on the processor. If it's not the processor fan/heatsink, you may have lucked out, but don't restart it till you replace the fans.The fan that sits on your cpu is the main concern, if it's one of the others the board should shut down automatically in order to stop this scenario from occuring.

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard. Do you think that's really the problem or could it be something else?
