COMPAQ Presario SR1220NX - Heat Sink/Fan

\015 Pretty sure that the fan on my heat sink/fan is no longer working. Nomally, it would activate every five or ten minutes, and it was audible (read that as noisy, but it didn't sound like it was quitting). It doesn't seem to be activating like it was; how can I diagnose?\015

Answers :

The processor fan should always be spinning; the variance is how fast it is spinning to dissipate the heat. The audible you would hear was most likely the fan spinning faster.

\015\012Take off the side of your case and turn on your PC. Is the processor fan spinning?
\015\012
\015\012Also if it is a fan issue you will begin to experience heat issues on your processor that will start to force your PC to shut down in order to protect itself. I don't suggest you allow this to continue to happen as you will eventually fry the processor.
