Turn on the computer and hold the Delete key (F2, F8). After some time, open the BIOS menu of the motherboard. To change the temperature of most devices you can change the settings of the fans. Press Ctrl F1 and Ctrl, click Advanced Setup or Advanced Configurations.
Find the point charge parameters of the cooling system. First, activate the option Always On, next to Fan Mode. This feature prevents the disabling of the fans. Locate the Fan Speed and set the required values in front of each cooler. Note that in your version of the motherboard may be missing this function.
Press F10 and confirm to restart the computer with the preservation of parameters of the coolers. If after this procedure the temperature of certain devices is still higher than normal, try to performance. This usually applies to the CPU. This operation will reduce the speed of your PC, therefore this method is resorted to only in extreme cases.
Install Speed Fan and try to change the settings of the fans. Activate the checkbox "auto adjust". This will allow the utility to automatically increase the rotation speed of the blades need coolers for greater cooling devices.
If none of the above methods were not effective, replace the right fan. Select a device with greater capacity. Remember that the size of the cooler is also important. It is better to choose devices to configure them programmatically. Connect the chosen fan to the desired device, activate the computer and open BIOS menu. Configure the settings of the new cooler.
Advice 2: How to install a new BIOS
Installing a new version of the BIOS is capable of opens up new possibilities of overlooking and work with the contents of the computer. After the updates often fix old bugs in the hardware. The manufacturer often updates the BIOS for its motherboards and offers users several ways to install via DOS or directly from the system.
You will need
- image of a bootable floppy of Windows 98 or Windows ME;
- program flasher and the BIOS firmware downloaded from the website of the manufacturer of the motherboard
To reflash the BIOS you need to download from the manufacturer's website itself firmware, program-flasher. Also download a bootable floppy image for Windows 98.
Create a bootable disk, specifying the path to the image file of a bootable floppy disk and writing the appropriate files disk the BIOS. This can be done using Nero or Ultra ISO. The algorithm of record in these applications is similar. You must open the file system image using the program and copy the files from the BIOS.
Reset BIOS. To do this, remove the battery from the motherboard for about 10 minutes, or set "Load BIOS Defaults".
Insert the recorded disc into the drive, restart the computer. Start a command prompt. Type "dir" will display the firmware files and the BIOS. Copy the virtual disk files awdflash.exe and copy nf3916.bin using the command copy ("copy awdflash.exe C:" and "copy nf3916.bin C:").
Go to the relevant section, with the command "C:". Set the options "awdflash nf3916.bin oldbios.bin /py/sy/cc/cp/cd/e".
Copy the old version back to the disk (command "copy oldbios.bin A:, and restart your computer using keyboard shortcuts, Ctr, Alt and Del. You can go into BIOS and make the desired settings.
All actions are performed at your own risk. When failed firmware the computer will not boot and will have to carry in service center. If you are not sure what benefits will give the BIOS update, it is better not to update.
It is not necessary to update the BIOS directly from Windows, as this may cause malfunction of the system. If you still want to "upgrade" directly from the system, do it in full accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Also note the version of the driver, which should be at least version 6.66 (in the case of ASUS motherboards).
Advice 3: How to set BIOS
BIOS (BIOS) is a set of built-in computer programs that are designed to perform computer startup, configure their devices and loading the operating system. Like any software the BIOS can be configured.
You will need
Restart the computer to enter the BIOS, and when you see the first screen press the Delete key. Other options are possible keys on different motherboards, usually on the splash screen will be shown message like Press Del to enter setup. If you specify another key, for example F2, press it to enter the BIOS.
Navigate to the Boot sector. The management teams of the BIOS is performed using the cursor and Enter key. Find the setting Boot device - it is responsible for the sequence of boot devices. Highlight the desired option using the arrows and activate it by pressing Enter. Select the primary boot hard drive, to do this, select First Boot Device and press Enter, select HDD, and press Enter.
Go to Power to set the BIOS settings for the cooler and CPU. Turn on the control system of the cooler and CPU. To do this, select option CPU Q-Fan Control set to Enabled, the option CPU Fan Profile select Optimal.
Remove boot splash logo when turning on the computer to speed up system boot. To do this, navigate to the Boot sector, select Boot Settings Cohfiguration, look for Full Screen Logo, set the value of this parameter is Disabled.
Go to Standard CMOS Setup to set the date and time of the system and the parameters of the hard drive of the computer. In the Integrated Peripherals section you can set the interface configuration and additional system functions. For installation options, energy and power refer to Power Management Setup. The function of binding to the cards the computer can be set to PnP/PCI Configurations.
To determine the indications of the system sensors (CPU temperature, fan speed), refer to Hardware Monitor. To restore the BIOS default settings, select Load Setup Defaults.
Commands in different versions of the BIOS may vary slightly from that described above.
