Fans constantly running at max despite little use of cpu

Q: Fans constantly running at max despite little use of cpu

I was downloading a game on steam and left my computer alone so it could finish the download, when I came back every time I clicked anywhere the fans would start to run on max, but since I had to get to school I didn't have time to solve this so I just shut down the computer and decided I would ask my friends for help, when I reopened it, Windows was updating and after the update my laptops keyboard didn't work (excluding the trackpad) and the fans are constantly running on max, can someone please help me I have the new Razer blade 14" (2016)

3 yr old laptop has the fans om all the time, OS is very slow (WIN 7), everything is slow, it would imply a virus but none found, CPU runs at 100% on occasion but I can't find the problem...neither could our local 'puter service.

So I'm on my own, any ideas?

A:Qosmio G55-Q804 fans constantly running

Hi

Did you clean the cooling modules in the past?
If not, do this?
Use an compressed air spray to remove the dust from cooling vents.
In most cases the clogged cooling grilles and fans cannot run properly and this leads to higher temperature. In such case the fans would run often.

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application. Beware it is NOT supported for use in 9x or ME and probably will not install in those systems

Upgrading Java:

Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7.
Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
Click the "Download" button to the right.
Select your Platform and check the box that says: "I agree to the Java SE Runtime Environment 6 License Agreement.".
Click on Continue.
Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation (jre-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe) and save it to your desktop. Do NOT use the Sun Download Manager..
Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.

Looks fine other than missing an anti-virus program.

Hey,
 
My laptops fans run quite fast after a while of my laptop being on even if I'm not doing anything.

A:PC's fans running.

It's fairly normal for the fans to be running, but does the laptop feel hot to the touch or do you get sudden shutdowns when you are working ?
 
There are a number of utilities which can give give temperatures for various components in your computer. The one I have is 'Speccy' by Piriform (www.piriform.com) but you can try googling for others. At the moment, my motherboard temperature is 30C, my graphics processor is 63C and my hard drives are at 27C. Most semi-conductors have an upper operating temperature limit of about 85C, this varies from one device to another, but so long as your temperatures are not reaching this level you don't have too much to worry about.
 
The normal cause for high tempeatures in computers is dirt !  Dust and muck accumulates on the fan and on the cooling heatsinks. If you have visible accumulations it might be worth your while to open up the case and carefully clean the fan and the heatsink. A soft brush and a can of compressed air are the usually recommended tools. Just don't let the fan spin when you hit it with the compressed air, it can actually generate harmful voltages if it is allowed to spin.

Since I bought my HP Pavilion, 4CPU 3.06 GHz 307 GHZ 448 mb of ram about 3 years ago, the fans inside run most all the time. A few months ago I got a error message about the fans, unfortunately didn't write it down. Now my system runs really slow, and the fan(s) hardly run at all, should I replace something so I can run faster again?
Thanks!
 

A:Fans running

With so little to go on, I will offer this:

Absent a malware or virus problem, the Windows Registry is the Achilles heel of Windows and I agree with John C Dvorak that if Microsoft continues to embrace it as the hub on which Windows runs, will eventually be the death of Windows in the marketplace.

The Registry swells and swells and swells over time as a laundry list of instructions that Windows reads continuously as it runs. The reading of this file never stops and when it eventually contains thousands of dead-end lines that have to be read just to find the useful ones, things slow down more and more.

These Registry cleaner programs are largely useless. They are attempting to wash out the garbage can when it is still full of garbage. The only way to clean the can is to dump it and start over. That is why I dump my machine at least once a year and start over.

I recommend you first try two malware removal programs, Malwarebytes Antimalware and SuperAntispy, both free. If those don't help, I would dump it all and start over.

Another problem is all the crapware installed on all new systems and that is the biggest reason I prefer to build my own. As for big brands, I prefer Dell over other brands because they distribute a Windows installation disk for installing a clean OS if you like--and I ALWAYS "like".

This problem started occuring a couple weeks ago. Up until then it didn't happen.

When I put my desktop into standby mode, everything happens normally except all the fans continue to run. I found people with similar problems, but couldn't find a clear solution or cause.

I did read it could be from the graphics driver. I did recently update the driver for my Nvidia GeForce FX 5600, and it seems to fit the timeframe. Could this be the cause and if so how could I fix it? Is there other things in the system that must be updated (BIOS?) for the computer to work with the new driver?

***After my initial post, I went back and did a roll back on my video driver. This did not correct the problem. So I don't know what it could be. Was working fine before. Could a windows update cause it?

Any information would be appreciated
 

A:Fans keep running while in Standby

I don't know what the cause was but try a System Restore to a point before the problem started and see if that fixes it. Any program installs and updates done since then will have to be done again but you can do them one at a time slowly to see if any of them may have responsible.

How can I check to see if this a real problem or if replacement is needed. Desktop is working ok with and without online usage but freezes up from time to time. What can I do to fix it??
 

A:CPU and Case fans not running

If the cpu fan wasn't working, the PC wouldn't be "working ok". Most computers, without the cpu fan running properly, will either not boot or shutdown within minutes (with an audible alarm) as the cpu overheats (without even using the computer).

"Freezing up" can be a software or hardware issue. If the problem only occurs "online", you could have a browser or browser plugin issue. You need to narrow down exactly what you are doing when the problem occurs.

You can also open and monitor Task Manager to view the cpu usage and processes to see if a single process is causing the problem.

It's hard to say how accurate those readings are. But the higher voltage may be causing the extra heat, and if true, will kill your machine much faster.

I just installed the Samsung 850evo M.2 250gb ssd.  It was easy using the Samsung migration software to clone the existing hdd to it. Initially the fans would run as normal. This morning I removed the hdd and replaced it with the Samsung 850evo 500gb ssd.  Now there is dead silence. It's quite odd to be "webbing" in silence. I'm concerned about the processor overheating. Is this the way is with ssd's?  or am I missing something.

A:The fans in my new i7559 are not running

To test the fans, run the Dell diagnostics (F12 at powerup to get in).  If you physically removed the spinning drive, you may have lowered the system's power consumption and therefore the temperature so the fans running less often may be a normal result.

I built my PC and it has worked wonderfully for about a year (ironically, just beyond the warranty expiration of some of the components- doubtlessly the one that is failing).

However, a couple of weeks ago, I came home and found my screen saver frozen on the screen. No biggie, I thought... I'll just hit the reset and all will be good in the windows world. "Nope" said the computer, "Not gonna do it".

There is the normal single beep I always get, the lights (CPU and Hard drive) flash in the front of the case and the fans all start spinning. It looks like its going to boot up, as each light on the CD Rom drives flash as per normal, however there is no POST screen on either monitor. The HDD light stays on for about 8 seconds, then goes out, and it just sits there.

I tried rebooting numerous times and each time this persisted. That was the night before work was sending me out of town. I came back a week later, rolled up my sleeves and was about to get down to diagnosing... I hit the power button and to my surprise, it booted up normally- problem solved, or so I thought.

Nope, the "Gates-Curse" strikes again: The system worked fine for about 3 minutes, then boom- it froze up again. Again, hitting the reset button had the same effect- fans spin, lights flash, no beep-codes, no POST.

I've tried replacing a brand new graphics card, reseating the CPU and memory, removing all PCI cards and removing power to CD drives and HDD and nothing work... Read more

Hey guys, I recently got a new pc and it's been giving me trouble from the start. System hanging, lockups, unexpected BSODs, anything you can think of. I checked out my settings in Speedfan and it definitely seems to be a result of overheating. Here's a screen capture:

http://img362.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ughio6.jpg

Now as you can see most of the temperatures are extremely hot, only CPU/AUX seems to be within a normal range. I am not sure what the exact problem is here, but it seems that most of my system fans are not recognized and/or not turned on. After this picture was taken I managed to get the "Aux0" fan running at a little under 1,000 RPM, but it's a no-go on everything else. I'm not really sure what could be wrong. Fan speeds in BIOS are all set to 100%. BIOS also claims that my GPU fan is running at 6,000+ RPM, but the results say otherwise. Problem is, I didn't put this system together and haven't poked around in the case much, so I don't know if this is a component defect, or not plugged in correctly... I'm at a loss for what to do here, any help?

I have been trying to troubleshoot my friends computer. When the computer is shutdown the fans continue to run after it has turned off. Once off though, if the power button is held down for a few seconds, the fans stop. So although that may work, it would be nice to get the computer to work like it's supposed to.

Some people insisted the issue was something to do with the heat sensors, or a short in the motherboard. So I had him download Ubuntu Linux and run it from the disc. When shutting down from linux the fans stop like they should. The shutdown from ubuntu was tried a few more times with the fans stopping properly. He tried shutting down from Windows again, and once again, the fans continue to run. So I am lead to believe the issue lies somewhere inside windows. I know you can control which areass of the computer are powered even after shutdown (e.g. usb ports), but I'm not sure how to control this from xp aside from a registry tweak. There is no power management tab in the window when you select a device from device manager. I figure a registry entry needs to be changed but I'm not familiar enough with changing the registry to know where to go in it.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank You.

A:PC fans don't stop running after shutdown

There really isn't a default setting for the Fans in Windows. But check in Control Panel/Power Options. You can also go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager/System Devices. For some reason the computer is not shutting down all the way.

I've encountered an usual problem... I recently had to pull 1 of the 2 video cards in my PC because it appears to have failed. Ok, not a big deal - not the first time I've had a video card die on my. (GTX 460's). Not sure if that's related to the problem or not, but thought it was worth mentioning as it's the only recent hardware change I've made.
A few days later - when I boot the PC, 2 of the case fans are running at maximum speed - the rear-facing case fan, and the fan mounted behind the motherboard - roughly behind the CPU. The CPU is liquid cooled. All temperatures are running under 50 degrees C, and this is from a cold start after hours of non-use, so no built up heat. The fans persist at maximum speed and never slow down.
I tried the trick I found online re: unplug and disperse any current to get the BIOS to reset, and it worked the first time but has not since.
Anyone have any ideas? The system still loads and appears to be running normally - no problems running any applications (including gaming) - but these fans are very loud at this speed.
 

A:PC fans running full speed

How are they connected controlled?

If they are attached to motherboard headers (not recommended), verify the BIOS configuration. Depending on the motherboard brand/model, there may be options for how they are controlled.

If that has no effect, the onboard controller could be faulty. You could simply install a fan controller, which is the recommended way to control fans anyway.

A:Fans running loud all of the sudden

Extra heat from intense graphics processing and general data crunching while game playing causes your CPU and/or GPU temperatures to rise. Your fans speed up to help cool down the hot components and make more noise.

Hi
Switched on the pc this morning Fans running at full speed ... switched off and restarted two or three times with the same effect. Looking inside the pc the cpu was clean and virtually free of dust and connections were fine.I started the pc again and ran pc wizard to check temperatures (quad core ) all threse were fine, however noticed that one of the Hardware monitors was reading 90 c.(TMPIN1).

The pc is not very old
Hp Pavillion HPE h8-1170uk desktop pc

Thinking that the pc is still under warrenty thought I wouldn't start taking things to bits, so put the side on andthought I'd try it again ... I haven't really done anything , but it started fine and several reboots have been ok.

The only thing I did different was to disconnect the power lead and press the start button a couple of times ( discharge the caps).

Any ideas ?

REgards Roy

A:Fans running full speed

Yes, one idea. Sometimes a device in the system does not "enumerate" correctly during the BIOS boot. Put simply, the BIOS "names" each connected device and keeps a list (checksum). When you boot the connected devices are checked against the list. If one of the devices on the list does not respond correctly then the system has to try and resolve the discrepancy. The BIOS will not completely release the system to the OS until it has done so. If it gets stuck in a loop then it will search forever.

I believe what you accomplished was some sort of "soft" ClearCMOS. By cutting power and draining the caps you allowed the system to refresh. It found all it's parts and you are good to go.

This type of behavior does not need to indicate any failing parts. It can happen simply due to a minor power fluctuation or data logjam. One time does not make a pattern. Keep your eye on it and if it happens more often then you may need to look into it further.

I have not been able to find anything in the manual about this issue or any soft or hard switches to change it. The system currently has 3 fans; a case fan, the processor fan and a fan on the chipset. I am currently running Win 98 on it. Any suggestoins for disabling the fans during sys suspend (or other ideas) would be appreciated.

TIA

A:Fans running during system suspend?

You want those fans to run. Heat would build up and ruin the computer. The first to go would be the processor. The only time you would not them to run is when the computer is completely shut down.

Hi, as above my PC has started having boot up issues and the Sys fan is reading 0rpm but when I've opened up the casing all of the fans are running fine.

Thanks

Hmmm guess this isn't a very common problem then, could it be any kind of driver issue?

I've recently upgraded from XP to windows 7 but updated all the drivers I could find from the manufacturers website.

'm running into a really annoying issue after upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8.
I first noticed it during the initial (clean) install; when the installer tried to reboot, my machine (an acer aspire 4755G) just hung after the initial shutdown. That is, after the screen turns off, the power lights and fans are still running, and the machine itself doesn't restart. (I let it sit for a good 15 minutes, and it still didn't change)
I managed to do a hard reset (power button for 5 seconds) and the install finished, but every shutdown/restart has been like that. Interestingly enough, hibernate works just fine.
I've looked at other solutions where it said to use the "bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes" command, and that didn't work.
I also turned off the "Fast Boot" option in the power settings menu. That didn't work either.
So far, the only option is to do the hard shut down by holding down the power button, but that proves to be horribly inconvenient.
I've also updated all my drivers to the proprietary onces given by Acer, yet this problem still persists! It worked fine on Windows 7, so I'm not sure what went wrong here.

Any help is appreciated!

A:Fans still running after shutdown of windows 8

Try: sfc /scannow,to repair the contents of the Dllcache directory.

It might be the problem from the installation, something might have went wrong. I would recommend you to perform clean install and let it install on its own (i.e no interfere), If the above code doesn't work.

Hi. I am just wondering whether there are any ways to run the fans on a computer without the cpu or motherboard active. I will use this to cool off the computer quickly after use and also cool it down as cold as possible before turning it on. This should help cooling. Also I will use this to do reviews on computer fans for youtube. Any ideas how to get just the fans running then?

Thanking in advance

A:Running Fans After Shut Down And Start Up

Unless someone here has a better idea, you would just about need a separate DC power supply with its own AC power connection to run the fans when the standard PSU is turned off.to power down the motherboard. However disconnecting the fans from their usual motherboard connections could cause the BIOS to trigger fan failure alarms. Some type relay setup might work to run the fans normally from the motherboard and then switch them to the separate supply when then main PSU shuts off.

FWiW running the fans before turning the computer on may not help much. If the computer has been sitting in the same ambient air temperature for over an hour, the internal air and components will all be at the same ambient temperature. Moving the same temperature air across the components will not cool them below the ambient temperature.

Hi all,

I am thinking of undertaking a case-modding project in the near future and I was wondering how I could power, and turn on and off the systems fans and any lights I may put in the case without a main board to send a signal to the PSU to power-on?

I have a spare case, a spare working PSU, tools and paint and a few ideas. Yet I don't have a main board kit to put into this case once finished, and thus I wont be able to see what the lights look like and how the air flow goes without power.

Is there any way I can re-wire the on/off switch directly to the PSU so I can turn the PSU on and off using that switch?

Any ideas appreciated.

Oh, and if anyone is curious my ideas for the case is to give an old, plain beige mid-tower case a make over. Thinking of re-spraying the outside flat black, spraying the insides flat or gloss white, re- modeling the drive bays and air vents, and hooking up some blue neon or UV lights for ambiance inside the case and then selling it to a friend.
 

A:Running case fans without a mainboard:

If the case has a standard ATX power supply with a 20 or 24 pin motherboard connector, connecting the green wire to one of the black wires will turn the power supply on.

You usually need a load (around 5 amps) on the 5 volt output to get the PSU to regulate properly. Depending on the PSU design, all the outputs tend to be low if there is no load on the 5 volt output.

I don't know if this is normal.
I have a Dell xps gen 3 pc, and 1 of the 2 fans in the back of the pc, will run high and then low. When high, it's loud, and when low, it's quiet. When i browse the internet clicking pages, or open up a program, the fan will kick in high, and as soon as the page loads, or the software loads, the fan shuts up. Happens everytime

It's annoying because the pc slightly pauses. Sometimes when i open up a program, and the fan stays high, my main xp screen will restart itself as if i restarted my pc, but i don't restart it.

I don't know if this is normal or what. the 2 fans run off the motherboard.i have cleaned the fans and everything inside the case, update bios and still the same. Fanspeed does not work with my motherboard which is the stock dell xps. My pc does run 55-59 pretty consistent.

suggestions?
 

A:Fans running high and low causes pc to pause?

Your fan runs high/low depending on the stress you're putting on your processor. It goes high to cool down the system to maintain the average temperature.
For example, My custom built computer has its temps around 50degrees and if it rises above it, the fan will go up lot to keep the temps between the margin.

However if your PC is around 55-59 temps then it should be fine unless they are idle..

My computer just recently crashed while I was playing a DVD. It had been running fine for about 1.5 years, except for the occasional BSoD (kernel inpage error) in the past couple of months after I had been playing Wolfenstein Enemy Territory for extended periods of time. This time, however, it wasn't a kernel inpage error, but something else. I didn't catch it, as it flashed pretty quickly. My computer proceeded to reboot, but then it froze. I turned the computer off, and when I tried turning it back on again, nothing happened. No lights, nothing. BUT the CPU fan and the case fans were still running, and the only way I could get these to stop was to unplug the power.

I'm about to go borrow a stick of ram from a friend to see if that's the problem. Does anyone have any other ideas as to what could be wrong? Thanks in advance.

So last night my computer suddenly shut down without any BSOD or anything. I had been getting BSODs before but this might be an unrelated problem. Anyway, then my computer just refused to turn on. I press the power button, the fans start running but my monitor has an amber light on which stands fire No Signal. This is different from cable not connected.
So I took the power cord off and slept. Problem still persists today. I cleaned all the fans and heat sinks but it didn't help. I tried a different monitor and cable. I reseated all the connections.

The weird thing is, I took out both the RAM chips and turned the pc on, but my motherboard didnt beep. I dont know whats wrong.
Googled a bit, and people were recommending holding the power button for 30 seconds, but it didnt do anything either.

So what do I do guys?

Hi, I run XP Home on a Pavilion t819.uk.
Just lately the cooling fan has taken to running flat out nearly all the time.

There are 3 fans in total, and most of the time they are just spinning quietly, but the lower rear fan under the power in box has taken to regularly running at high speed, sometimes for a few minutes, as if it's getting too hot as when gaming.
It even happens when I first boot it up, so it's not as if it's hot.

I have around 40 processes running, but the fans cut in and out even when it's idling, or just web browsing.

I've had the sides off, vacuumed and brushed out all the dust, and it looks pretty clean inside.

Hope I've covered about everything.

Thanks in advance.

My computer recently started "shutting down" randomly. However, when it shutsdown, all the fans and power seem to still be running while the monitor goes into standby mode. I then have to force the computer to turn off completely. Sometimes, the computer would shutdown during the bootup stage or not start at all. I've noticed the light on my CD drive goes orange whenever this happens.

I have an AMD Athlon 2800
Radeon 9700
512 single stick of ram
400w power supply.

I have already tried replacing the power supply.
Any suggestions.
 

A:Computer randomly shutsdown, but fans still running

It might be a thermal shutdown, i.,e., cpu is running too hot. Make sure the fan on top of your cpu is running and there is no blockage or impairment of the air being sucked in by this fan. There is usually a separate air duct to the outside the case for this fan.

You might try opening the case, removing this duct and then running the computer with the case open. See if your problem goes away.

I purchased my HP laptop back in 2009. It came installed with Windows 7. It has an Intel quad-core processor and 8 gigs of RAM. I upgraded to Windows 8.1, and since then my laptop's fan has been running high and hot constantly. It did not behave this way before I upgraded the OS. The fan usually acts up when I have 2 or more things running on the laptop.

Has anyone else had this kind of experience? Thanks.

Before the upgrade, did you update your BIOS? There have been known issues with excessive heat after the upgrade/clean install from 7 to 8/8.1. The BIOS update is being reported as a fix for this and over all stability.

Hi matts6887,

Do you have any software running on the system which controls the fan speed. If yes then you can use the same to lower the speed of the fans.

Also, have you tried updating BIOS as it also controls the speed of the fan.What softwares are still running in the background when you leave the system locked. You should perform a clean boot and check:

Clean Boot

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Hey guys!
I came across this site while googleing my issue, and I'm hoping you can help me out.

I came home from a buddy's after having my PC there for the night. Worked fine there. Brought it home, and went to plug it in and when i plugged the power cord into the psu it sparked and stunk something awful!
I initally thought I had somehow fried the psu so I went and picked a new 550W one up (compared to my old 480W). Now, when I turn on my PC I get my fans & lights all turning on. I can feel the HD's running, but I'm getting no signal on my screen. I tried a new video card, still the same problem. Also, the first time I turn it on, if its been off for awhile, it'll stay on for about 1min, and then turn off. I power it back on, and then it'll shut down within a couple of seconds.

Dead MOBO? I assumed that if my mobo was dead, nothing else would turn on, maybe I'm wrong though.

Anyone else with this issue know what exactly is wrong? Any ideas would help!

Running windows XP Home, Asus MB and Athlon CPU. When I run the computer, the system locks up after anywhere from 5-10 minutes. The CPU temp seems fine, the fans are running at max. There is, however, the faint smell of something that got too hot at one point. When I try to run system restore, it runs for 2-5 minutes but locks up before it can complete the restore. I had a problem with my primary drive last year, I think the little whatz-it in the outside bottom was bad because the disk itself tested as okay, but when I replaced it all my problems went away. Is it possible that the same thing is causing this latest problem?

Hi guys,

I have a computer that we recently cleaned out because it was getting hot and shutting down randomly. At first it wasn't starting but we figured out we seated the CPU wrong (don't know how, some pins fell in and we missed the fact that it wasnt all completely in), so we reseated the CPU according to the notch and it booted up fine.

Now, about a week or two later, the computer will not start. The CPU is seated fine. Turning on the computer everything spins up but no POST beep for anything. If I unplug the video card power, I do get a beep though because it detects that the video card does not have power running to it.

I've tested the power supply with a tester and it was fine, just makes a loud noise when i test it, so I even tried another power supply, still nothing showing up on the screen (not even bios screen). At this point I would assume it was either a) video card b) motherboard c) cpu

I don't have another AGP card to try but I can try another motherboard. Any ideas on narrowing this down before I do?
 

A:No POST beeps, fans running, but no boot?

So I used another motherboard/cpu/ram combo I had and put the video on there and everything booted up fine. So now my guess is the problem is either the motherboard, or the CPU. Before we make any purchasing decisions, how can I be sure (without buying one) whether it's one or the other?

EDIT: I should also mention.. I don't mind giving him the cpu/mobo combo I have, but since he already has a hard drive I'm afraid it may cause a lot of issues with the drivers.

Hi,
I just assembled a new PC. After turning on the power on PSU all of the
fans (CPU, Graphic card, Case fans) starts running before I hit the

with power button also: It doesn't work at the first push. I have to
try pushing several times with several pressing durations. It seems that
a 1 or 2 seconds pressing works.
Also after shutting down windows, all of the fans keep running.

A:All fans starts running before system start

First of all it does not matter which way the wires go on the power switch pins. You can put them on either way. The only pins that matter which way the wires go are the hd activity, LED, and speaker pins. The reset and power pins do not matter.

Next I would pull everything out of the case and test with the board on a non-conductive surface; the motherboard box works well for this task.

Install your video card and connect your monitor, connect the power supply to the board [do make sure any extra power connectors are connected also] Have just the cpu, ram, video, and the ps connected to the board. Use something like a small screwdriver to jump across the power switch pins on the board. If it powers on normally now, you have a mounting problem. If it does not power on normally and you have swapped the ps for a known working one, you most likely have a bad board.

I've been using Windows Vista for many years, and I've finally done some more depth research into CPUs and upgraded. With the upgrade (as the new core is 64 bit whereas the old one wasn't) I decided to upgrade my OS to Windows 7 Professional.
Mostly it's great, but I've noticed that after the computer is woken from being asleep that one of the fans is running at it's maximum speed until the computer is restarted. This is irritating for two reasons as I don't want to wear my fans out and because it is very noisy.

I do use speedfan, but generally have it set to run off the automatic fan speed. Usually the fan runs at around 1560 RPM depending on what I'm doing, but when this error is happening Speedfan is registering it at over 4000 RPM and this continues until a restart.

For now, I have disabled the sleep function to avoid this, but it would be great to know why this was happening and how I could avoid it.

Thank you!

Am thinking its the cpu 1-2 pins were bend and i made then straight again so it would fit in the socket 2 other pins had a S shape bend, but it still fits in the socket with some force.
Other possibility is the Power supply? I dont know..

So please guys help me out here!, Am a girl so this is a bit hard for me =[
 

A:No beep no screen, but fans/lights/components running

I'm by no means an expert but I had a similar problem with a new build last night. I never waited 10-15 minutes for it to post though so I don't know what it would have done. It appears my memory was bad. When I switched out memory sticks with some others I had in another build, it started right up.

The bent pins on the processors don't sound good however.

Hello,
I'm having a big issue with my computer and seeking all the help i could get. Many thanks in advance.
 
This issue started upon the first day of building my new computer. I did not care about it due to the fact that it did not occur that often. Maybe 1 time a month, not more. The issue did also only appear when running Alpha games, so did not reflect that much about it as it could be memory leaks etc in these Alpha games.
 
- Whats the issue? Computer freezes and the display turns black with the fans running on highest speed (All of the fans). Any music/game -sound in the background freezes and sounds like "Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz". This remains until i force a shut down. No Minidumps are visible as this is not a bluescreen.
- Something iv'e noticed and could be worth mention. The black screen got worse and more intense after i replaced my 2 screens with a brand new Samsung 34 inch curved display. 
 
- I tried only a few things thats within my reach. Replacing the mems, resetting the bios etc. Nothing more.
- When connecting the computer to a low res tv (1920x1080) its working as intended, no black screen.
 
Here's my spec:
PSU: EVGA PowerSupply (PSU) SuperNOVA 750 G2 750W
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K - 8 threads/ 4,0GHz( 4,4Ghz Turbo) / 8MB / Socket 1150 (Boxed) (88w)

Hi,

I have a new SATELLITE S50-B 15, i7-5500U, 8GB Ram, SSD etc. and iv been having a few issues with it.

for reasons unknown the CPU fan will start running at high speed even though the CPU temp has not reaching 35%.
it has also frozen about 10 times since I got it (April this year).

The only way to get it working again would me to hold the power button until off and start it back up.
Once started back up there is no mention of any problem in the event logs other than the forceful shutdown.

I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced any issues?

Thanks,

Chris

A:Satellite S50-B 15P - Fans running at high speed and system crash's

The only way to get it working again would me to hold the power button until off and start it back up.

Forcing shut down resets the fan activity and the performance?
Hmm? this sounds like there must be some kind of system issue? probably the some background processes locks the CPU and therefore the fan activity increases.

You could start the task manager and in the tab called ?Processes? you will find all background applications which would use the CPU.
Click on the CPU column to show all processes loading the CPU.


At the other hand you could also try to modify the ?cooling method? option which is available in Windows advanced power options.
Go to control panel → power options.
Here click on the power plan which is currently in use.
Then click on Advanced power options and navigate to Cooling method.
Here you can change this from active to passive.



Additionally you can decrease the max CPU state to 90%-05%

Months and months ago my computer started having a problem with running graphic-intensive games such as FarCry and KotOR. I did everything I could and couldn't find out what was wrong. My computer would shut down and a message over the speakers would say I was overclocking it. I kind of passed it off for a bit, but today I installed ASUS Probe from the CD that came with my motherboard, and under Monitor Summary, both Power Fan and Chassis Fan were unchecked for monitoring. When I checked them, they have the message "____ Fan below threshold." When I checked the Fan Monitor, apparently only the CPU fan is working.

http://img441.imageshack.us/my.php?image=asus5ln.jpg

Now, I have a fairly new system, so I'm pretty sure there should be fans there. I had no problem with games when I first got it last december. It only started about April or May.

I have a Intel Pentium 4 (3.2GHz), with a ASUS P5AD2 Deluxe (Wireless Edition) motherboard. I have 1024 MB of RAM and a ATI Radeon X600 Pro graphics card.
 

A:ASUS Probe says Chassis and Power fans aren't running, AIDA detects one fan

it is possible that your fans are not conencted with the motherboard. to acertain whether there is a cooling problem, check your cpu and gpu temps. also, this problem could be caused by a failing PSU.

Hi, i just got my Lenovo 501S-14IKB today. Everything is working fine, its super fast in comparison to my old laptop. Only problem is, that the fan seems to run all the time and is making noticable noise. the temperature of the cpu aer all in the range of 20 only the hd was at 34. so normally that are not temperatures where cooling is needed. If i let the notebook idle for 2 min it goes dead silent but starts again even if i just scroll down a homepage. And even if i start programms whicht take more resources, the fan does not get louder. Is there anyway to controll the fan? Help would be really appreciated, Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english

In Windows Task Manager, under the Performance Tab, my CPU is showing at 100% permanently. I've tried closing down some of the high runner processes but nothing makes any difference.

I've run several cleaners (RegCure, CCleaner etc) but again nothing makes any difference.
My PC is constantly freezing, hanging, sputtering and is becoming unusable.

I also noticed that when I manage to perform a normal shutdown, everything goes normally BUT my screen stays on, and the power button light remains on, but I can hear the drives and fan stopping. I then have to perform a manual powerdown by holding the on/off button for about 8-10 seconds.

My machine is a 3.06 GHz Pentium 4 Compaq Presario, 18 month old, O/S is Windows XP Home Edition, with SP 2.
Anyone out there have any ideas?
Thanks in advance

A:S41 - Fan constantly running

That is usually caused by the vents that allow air to be drawn over the CPU heat sink being clogged with dust   Once the CPU gets hot, the system will slow down, and eventually just shut down to protect itself from a meltdown.     I would try using a vacuum cleaner hose and a can of computer cleaning air to blow/suck out the dust and see if that helps.     I that still fails, you may have to remove the base cover (see page 34 of the Lenovo S41/U41 Hardware Maintenance Manual) and clean the fan manually.     In rare case the heat sinks fail, or the thermal heatsink compund beween the CPU and the heat sink cracks and fails to transfer heat to the heat sink efficiently, mut most likely you will find the system is full of dust. Lenovo used to have a fan cleaning program in the Lenovo Energy Managment software, but I think it removed it for some reason.    It is supposed to run the fan backwards and forwards at high speed to try to clean the dust, but if it is really plugged, it probably will not work. Good luck. Lenovo S41/U41 S41-35 S41-70 S41-75 U41-70 Hardware Maintenance Manualhttps://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_s41-35_s41-70_s41-75_u41-70_hmm_201503.pdf

Hello,Pasting in contextual information from another topic ~ OBHere is a little history.March 30th A Windows problem first became evident as the CPU spiked to 100% and on reboot, Windows would not boot up stating it could be a hardware or software problem. At that time I thought it was the motherboard and had it swapped out because the error I had was different but the symtoms were the same prior to the system not booting.April 6th got the laptop back from HP and put in my HD to boot from. It worked for a day and then the CPU spiking issue was found, only this time with no failure to boot.Since that date I have tried to isolate the issue but to no avail. I have tried various restore dates and images, as well as manipulating the data on the master image (delete WoW before issue is active and reinstall it from scratch). None of it has worked.My latest attempt was to restore from my oldest image available [the other night]. It was left restoring and hasn't been tested yet. I am not sure if the "issue" will be visible on it.

A:CPU running at 100% constantly

Hello All,

I wanted to provide an update to this. I blew away the image last night hoping to restore from the factory settings and get it up and running. That worked for about an hour before the symptoms came back. That normally leads me to think that there is something on my home network that is passing a virus along before I can patch windows, but to add further confusion to this topic, the same situation has occurred on my work laptop. Both are HP NC6400. That is the only similarity. The work laptop is running XP and my home machine Vista. I had both machines rebuilt and the work one without ever stepping into my house exhibited the same issue on a fresh build. Is it possible that there is something resident in the BIOS of these machines, or that a Virus screwed up the CPU's?

How/where do I save my own photos for desktop background so that A drive isn't running all the time?

I'm running a Gateway 1GHz, 40GB HD, CDRW, Iomega Zip drive and Windows ME.
If I keep a Zip disk in, with photo I want on it, Drive A is quiet.
Problem began when I tried to change desktop background.

Appreciate any information!!

I just received a new HP 22-b052 AIO yesterday and as soon as I started it up, I could hear the fan on the left side (or right side from the back) constantly running. The sound from far away is unnoticeable but when I'm in front of it, it is loud. Is this normal for HP AIO (All in One)? I called HP tech support and spent hours recovering and reinstalling BIOS, running hardware tests but to no avail.  Also, could I replace the fan? Is this PC customizable, would I be able to switch out the mobo and CPU (and of course fan)?

Hello! my old computer's HD is Running constantly. i cant get it to stop work. is it a hardware problem or software? and how can i solve it? thanks for your help

A:My Harddrive is running constantly

There's quite a few things that can have that effect. Let's start simple and work up.

How old is the hard drive?

I would check the overall space of the hard drive, good practice to have at least 20% free. The HD may also be fragmented, you can check the status of both of these from the disk defragment application. If the HD space is lower then 20%, you may want to delete temporary files from Disk cleanup.

Next I would check the RAM and Virtual memory amount, it depends on what system your running, but a good baseline is anywhere from 2gb to 4gb of ram, and 1.5x your current ram amount = virtual memory. You can confirm these from the Task Manager, under the Performance tab.

If those come up clean and fine, you may want to do a quick virus scan. I personally recommend Malwarebytes, you can find the most current version from their website at Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

Long story of what's happened so far:

So about a week ago I was on firefox and using google search. I scrolled through the page and my firefox window closed. internet explorer opened for a brief second, it then closed itself, then a program called XP security 2011 downloaded itself and started running a virus scan. I just assumed it was a fake (I've had this sort of thing happen on other computers in the form of Spy Sheiff and something else years before). My internet was hijacked and I couldn't open any page in any browser. So I turned the computer off, ran malwarebytes anti-malware in safemode and it found a few things. I deleted everything that came up and I turned the computer back on in normal mode and I ran into a few other problems.

While the internet now worked, whenever I tried to open (mostly) any other program, it would ask what program I wanted to open it with (the list of the default programs). After a while of searching, I came across a registry fix for it, downloaded it and it worked.

Some point after that though I just ran more scans in Malwarebytes, and whenever I boot the computer normally it runs super slow. I pin pointed this to services.exe using the task manager but from what I read it seems that it's a genuine file that has malware attached to it. It's hogging every bit of CPU that isn't being used by everything else. If I run the computer in safe mode it might run at 80-90% which is definitely better then 100, but it&... Read more

Hi,

I am running Vista Home Basic. I have good computer knowledge and skills although certainly not an expert. I can't understand why I am constantly getting the low C: memory warning. I store all pictures and music, etc. on a separate hard drive, and I have carefully gone over my program files and uninstalled any that didn't seem worthwhile. I have a 70 gig hard drive which seems like lots and is more than any computer I've owned before. Sometimes it seems that if I delete files, etc. to clear up memory and the next time I come back to my computer I'm out of memory again. I often get the "could not complete back up due to insufficient memory" notice. I'm unclear on what is being backed up and if this is part of the problem.

I have 3 GB of RAM and the Virtual Memory is currently set at 3242 MB

Help!

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to vista forums

WE could use some info on your computer like how much memory you have, but I think you are running low on "virtual memory". Virtual memory or page file is set in the system control panel>advanced settings. Dependant on the amount of RAM you have it should be set for between 1 and 2 times the amount of ram. If you run out of RAM more and more things are stored in the page file untill it too is out of space. thats when y ou get the low memory warning.

If you like I can walk you thru the settings and where to change them, just tell us how much ram you have.

Virtual Memory Paging File - Change

hope this helps

I am running WinXP Pro SP3 and I have had an ongoing issue with my rundll32.exe suddenly spiking to 50% and then fluctuating around there. I use all the usual suspects (Spybot, CC Cleaner, Avira Antivir, Malwarebytes) and my system is clean of viruses and malware. I have prepared a HJT log file, a task manager screenshot and a system32 screenshot. The rundll32.exe icon is not the standard white icon or icon with a symbol, but looks more like a piece of paper. Is this normal for this icon?I will provide any other information to anyone who can provide me some assistance.Thank you in advance for you time and advice.

Have taken delivery of a new desktop pc and it is ok except for the fact that the fan cranks up to (a noisy) full speed when pc switched on and carries on like this until it is turned off.
I queried this with supplier's help desk but they assured me that this is normal?
Should I just accept that it is (normal)?
