I'm experiencing a problem with my Antec case fan. But not just my Antec case fan in particular...this is happening with whatever cooling fan I use.
I noticed that my PSU fan spinning fast for an extended amount of time, so I popped open the case, to find what was wrong. I discovered that the case fan wasn't spinning. I shut the system down.
Now, when I POST, the case fan connected to the chasis fan connector on my motherboard, doesn't spin. It was working fine before. Well...the fan tries to spin, resulting in a whining sound produced by the fan's electromagnets, but remains stationary. Again, I've tried connecting other fans to this connector, but the same problems occurs. Only when I spin it manually to give it a jump start, does it begin to oscillate, but slowly.
My heatsink fan works fine, however.
Here's an MOV video of what happens (turn volume up to hear the whining):
For a long time now, I have been experiencing overheating problems with my system...this is just worstening it.
Anyone know what's wrong
? Is it a power problem related to my PSU, or is there a problem with my motherboard?
