I have fan failure. It has been making a strange

\015 I have fan failure. It has been making a strange noise for a week now. The noise is now gone but I have a "fan failure" notice when I boot up!\015

Answers :

You need to replace the CPU fan as it has failed, I recommend that you refrain from using the computer until you have replaced the fan, this is because it has no way of cooling down and you will be running the risk of blowing the processor and/or the motherboard up.
The CPU fan is located inside the case and is attached to the motherboard on top of the processor.

First you must determine which fan it is. open the side of the tower and turn on pc. watch which fan is mot rotating. i've seen cases where cpu fans don't turn because of wires getting in the way of fan blades.
\015\012if this is not the case, once you determine which fan is not working, just turn off pc, remove the fan, go to PC store and replace

Hi. My computer is having a problem loading. Apparently, I went to work and then my wife decided that instead of turning it off the correct way just turned it off by hitting the power switch.

Lockup My computer works great except, it frequently freezes and will not take any input from the mouse or keyboard. It generally does it while you aren't using any input. Loading of a page or navigation on line. There is no pattern to it and it's even froze a couple times on the screen saver. I can seldom go for more than a couple hours without this occurring, sometimes only a couple minutes. The only cure is a reboot. I'm pretty sure it's a hardware problem.
