I have problem with regard to my power supply fan. It's not functioning. All of a sudden it's not working; I already try to clean it using a vacuum cleaner but nothing happen, still its malfunction. I can't replace it this time, I don't have money yet. Any ideas that can help me to save it?

Good day,

I suggest to you to open your power supply and clear it properly from any dust particles. After cleaning, connect it directly to 220/v without inserting it with the computer and observe if it's functioning or not. If Its working it literally means that the power supply is good, if it's not functioning then you have no choice but to take it to a technician. Also observe if power supply is functioning yet fan is moving in the AV Volt directly, perhaps you should check the wiring then. It can also be an issue of wires of malfunction fan. I hope I help you with it.
