NB Fan Dying?
Holy crap, what could be doing this.
Almost every time I turn on my computer now, without fail, the motherboard fan just starts revving SUPER hardcore, and the PC Speaker starts setting off this horrid two-tone alarm.
I checked my ABIT EQ (the MB is an Abit AN7), and it shows the NB fan speed as around 240-300 RPMS, I know this isn't true as I can see / feel it vibrating its poor little fan cage. The temperature isn't RISING at all though. Usually I can turn my computer off, wait a minute, and turn it back on and it is normal again, but these past few days it has been unavoidable, and sometimes even starts doing it when my computer is already on.
Is this fan dying? Is there some type of problem with my voltage settings? I have a half-dead motherboard lying around with an NB Heatsink on it; should I replace this stupid fan with that heatsink?
Please help me, I just turned off my PC Speaker to post this, then I'll be checking this thread on my buddy's computer. I have MSN AIM Yahoo Xfire Teamspeak as well you name it. Thanks a BUNCH BUNCH BUNCH.
