my grandson upped his i3 computer by, 500w psu from 300w psu, and added
a NVidia 660 graphics card.( did it for him actually)
it now keeps shutting down after about 30 minutes use.
the "Bell" computer case only has one 4inch case fan, and no provision for another fan
does he need to buy a gaming case, or up the i3 to an i5
For “Dell” read HP 5370,
Windows 8 Pro,
4Gig memory,2Gig graphics card,
Mainboard MS N1996, AMIBIOS
I told my grandson he did not have enough cooling in that small case,
He bought a “Dantage Wildlord” gamers case,
With everything in the new case, it now has 7 fans,
2 in the graphics card, 1 under the PSU, 1 12cm at the back,
2 12cm at the side, and one over the CPU.
Every time the power button is pressed an error message appears.
ERROR: System fan has failed,
Service PC to prevent damage to the system.
Press F2 to continue.
This message appears even though all 7 of the fans are working at full speed
Pressing F2 and the computer boots up and works normaly.
Can anyone help me get rid of this message
I know! I keep making mistakes, getting the maker wrong, and the case name.
my excuse is I am 85 years old
the case and mainboard exactly match the one you put a link to,
i have checked the CPU and heat sink, they are tight down to the board.
