I tried to turn my pc on this morning and all I got was a series of constant beeps, with the warning on screen '!CPUFAN NOT WORKING CORRECTLY' I unplugged my system whipped the back off to investigate, all seemed fine though just to be sure I gave the heatsing and fan a clean, it was a bit dusty.
I plugged everything back in and still the same thing happened, so unplugged everything again took the back off left the power supply in and the noise from the fan was terrible. (I have noticed that the fan is getting nosier in the AM but after about 10-15 mins continues at normal sound levels.) I slackened the screws holding the fan down, turnedon and still the annoying beeps hmphh!
After about 2hrs of messing and trying to slacken screws and tighten gradually to eliminate noise, I decide to try something, I took the fan from the cpu holding the fan in my fingers, switched the damned thing on only to hear the reasuring single bleep and the pc go to normal startup routine. I promptly switched the pc off and reattached the fan only to be back at sqaure one!!! could it be that by screwing the fan back on I am putting too much pressure on the CPU? Just seems very odd that when I remove the fan from the HS it goes into the normal routine, as soon as I reattach it goes into devil mode!
Any help would be appreciated
