Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

E-machine t3882 desktop. When I power on computer, it will power up, but has a loud fan noise and will not boot up. I opened unit up with power on and the fan making the noise was on top of what appeared to be plates spaced apart. Do iI need to replace fan and how do I do it? Mike


Answers :

Hi\015\012
\015\012The fan you are talking about is the processor's fan, beneath this fan is the heat sink and beneath the heat sink is the processor. When processor's temp. is high then computer will not switch on however as your fan is working normally(i.e high speed) so you need to check all the connectors on the motherboard. Also please let me know if you hear any beeps like short beeps, one long beep etc. \015\012Kindly make sure that every cable is connected firmly at the back of the PC. \015\012Please check this manual for further information on how cables are connected:\015\012

Could you possibly take me a picture so I wold know more of what your talking about actually. But yes you can replace the fan if its gone bad and makes a loud noise.

I suspect the issue maybe something other than the fan itself, so you don't get any picture out form the computer, does it beep?

are you fimiliar with the internal parts? but the picture would be great as the first step on solving this problem.
