I have a desktop system built (not by me) with ASUS A7N8X Deluxe.
Lately, PC has been shutting down during boot up in fact, frequently.
Vacuuming the fan on the processor helped but still it shut down and
so I used canned air on the motherwborad and memory yesterday. Yet it
was down when I woke up this morning. soemtimes.
So far it's fine since I turned it on this morning. But when I
decided to look at the new 512GB module (3200) I put last year August,
when I opened the case and put my hand near the memory module, it was
quite hot. A friend has told me that the fan needed replacement or
even the chip.
It's wokring so far but I did leave the case open. What shoudl I do?
Replace the fan or the processor. If the processor, I know that Socket
A would work but would ti be Socket A7? Google search got me to
and through it, to Full Review at
where it says under Specification that this motherborad supports all
Current AMD Athlon Socket A Processors.
Since there is no date on the article, what does it mean by *all*? All
socket A, meaning Socket A7 as well as A8?
This is my main PC, built by a nephew may be in 2002 or 2003. I wan
tto keep it for some time and am willing to spend some money to kepe
it going w/o problem.
Any help or guidance is appreciate.
Just some friendly words...
Since it was built 4 or 5 years ago, I'd probably remove the heatsink and
replace the thermal compound (between processor and heatsink).
Another thing you may want to do (if possible) is get yourself a case fan to mount
in the FRONT of the case (usually bottom front) if there is a place for one.
IF your memory "feels" hot or even just the inside of the case in general,
after you have had it on for a while, you should try to get some air flowing
through by adding that extra case fan.
I was thinking about that. In fact, this case is so big and has places
for fans in the case -tower design - itself just next to heat sink
but higher positions attached t the back of the case just below the
power supply. My nephew did put the 2 fans but the wires were cut. I
guess because of the noise. This was his desktop before he passed away
in summer 2004. Should I replace those fans?
Just a few little tid-bits that might help out...
I'll try these suggestions first.
