You will need
- - screwdrivers;
- - Speed Fan.
Start with finding out the reason why the fan has stopped working correctly. Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord. Get access to the internal components of the PC, removing the left cover from the housing.
Make sure that the device is connected to the power plugs. They are usually located on the equipment, which is attached to the cooler or the motherboard of the computer.
Check the lubrication of the axis of rotation of the blades. To do this, rotate the fingers of the blade and verify that they rotate freely. Otherwise, replace the cooler or try to replace the lubricant.
If the problem is not a technical problem, check your fans. The first sign of a wrong configuration – turn off all coolers computer. Turn on PC and open BIOS menu. To do this, hold the Delete key.

Save the configured settings. Restart the computer and check the fans. If the coolers still are not running, download and install Speed Fan. Open the tool and wait until it has finished gathering information about the available fans.
Install displayed for each of the cooler the indicator of speed of 100%. Disable AutoSpeed. Save the settings. Try to reduce the speed of the fan. Possible cause of fault insufficient supply voltage for the coolers.
Install 20-30% of the maximum speed. Replace the fan if all the above procedures have not led to a positive result.
Advice 2 : How to connect the fan in the computer
To prevent overheating and damage some of the parts computer system unit it is necessary to mount the fans. For the successful implementation of this process it is necessary to know some subtleties.
You will need
- - SpeedFan;
- - Speccy;
- - Phillips screwdriver.
To begin, select a fan. Pay attention to the size of the device. The cooler should not be too large, because this may hinder him from mounting to the right place. Examine the size, number and location of holes for screws. They must match the holes on part or unit.
Please note the format of the power connection to the fan. Usually the cooler is two, three or four-core wire. Make sure that you will be able to connect the chosen fan to the motherboard or the hardware to which it is attached. Remember a little trick: you can, for example, to attach the fan to the graphics card, and power connect to the motherboard.
