Dear Shoben,

The steps that you should do:

  1. Sign in BIOS, then check the hardware monitoring. If the fan speed below 2800 rpmmeaning the processor fan must be cleaned or replaced.
  2. Check the temperature of the processor, if the fast-changing ride, then you have to clean the processor fan, or replace it.
  3. Check the processor fan connector to the motherboard, there may be broken or dirty connectors.
  4. Check the processor holder, probably the processor heatsink is not attached to the processor.


If all the above steps still do not work out, you have to buy a new CPU Fan and replace it. 

Good luck.

First of all, it is important to make sure that all the cables connection to the motherboard is tightly fitted. Please refer to your motherboard manual for more information about the connecting cables.

When replacing the CPU fan that is not working as it should, it is best to leave it to a qualified technician. However, if you are expert enough to do the job yourself, note that some fans are separate from the heat sink, while others come as a unit.

Before you try to install or replace the fan make sure that you are absolutely certain about what you are doing. A faulty fan may damage your system for good and may hurt your pocket gravely. If your fan is faulty, the failure of the computer to start, immediately after turning on, or hearing code beeps when you start it up are some of the symptoms.

These beeps are codes that help diagnose exactly what is wrong with the PC. If you suspect or hear any of those, it is time to take your computer to a professional. Although, there are other signs of an overheating computer processor due to a malfunctioning fan such as getting a blue screen, an OS error message, or even shutting off or freezing.
