Cros4t Welcome to Geeks to Go
I had to adjust. It worked ok for a while
How old is PC
Where did you obtain CPU Fan?
What Voltage is this fan?
did you make?
How long is
that it worked?
How is it mounted - -Which way/direction is Air flow - - In or Out of heatsink?? It should be forcing air down thru the heatsink toward CPU & forcing the air out thru the sides -
I have also replaced the fan on the motherboard
Was fan mounted on Motherboard Chipset Heatsink ?
What voltage is this fan?
How is it connected? Describe connector Is it connected to Motherboard Fan Connector or
Connected directly to a Power Supply Connector
I am interested in viewing your motherboard - - -Can you take a photo & post it? Take a closeup of CPU Fan & Motherboard Fan ??
Is this your motherboard?
If not Can you locate part Number / Model Number Manufacturer & Post
Fan / cooling info
Below is Antec Cooling Link You should be able to select the correct fan
Cooling Links -
Fans are defined by size 80mm 120mm etc
Also is your CPU Heatsink/Fan Assembly clogged with DUST does it look like this?? The gray stuff inside fan
Is a large amount of Clogging Dust Fan will stall if it cannot pass the air thru !!!
Classic CPU Fan Clogged with Dust -

I am not sure which fan you are referring to You talk about a power supply fan but seem to be describing the CPU Fan
You also mentioned purchasing a Heatsink - - -which implies CPU - - -
The criteria that you need for a CPU Fan- - -is to know the - -
CPU Socket Type
Motherboard MFR Model
Do you have any of the Specifications of PC - - - or an Overview of the PC which is HP751N ---Is that correct
I tried searching for some data on your PC - - -but 2002 HP Pavillion 751N - - - is too old . . . except for a few
Websites that have rebuilt items. . . but it is still a guess . . . If you can find any of the above info - -
Please include in your next Post --
TRY these 2 items - --
The most common problem with a PC that freezes up - - - after 3 -5 years - - -is the accumulation of heavy dust
That gets packed in the Heatsink assembly - - -and prevents the fan to push the air down thru the heatsink assembly to cool the CPU . . . You need to pull the Fan Off - - -And blow out the dust in the heatsink assembly using a can cleaning duster - - - You just need to keep the can upright as you spray - - - turning the can upside down - - -
Will emit moist air (water) - - which will cause another problem -- - You need to turn the PC around as you spray- - -
Then reinstall fan assembly - making sure --proper airflow --into the heatsink --
and no pinching of the wires - -and connect to proper motherboard CPU Connection ---
Another thing to try- - - Just a quick temporary Fix/solution to get back up & running -- -
Remove your Tower Side Case - - Obtain a medium size House Fan- - -and have facing so that its airflow is blowing into the CPU Heatsink assembly - -- - The additional cooling should help - - -
If you can do those 2 things - - -you may cool it down enough to run the PC
Then if you can .. Download Speedfan from the following website
Download Speedfan & install in PC .-----This is a utility that will measure your Temperatures Voltages and display them on your Monitor - - This way you can see your problem --- Normal Temps should be 28C to 48C
Also Room Ambient Temperature has an effect on Overheating --- Please post your Results (TEMPs & Voltage)
Now if you can find the info that I asked for . . ..I can ask for some of other techs ---to help with proper
CPU heatsink & Fan Assembly . . .
