SOURCE: Foxconn CPU fan making noise

It sounds like the fan bearing is shot, I'd recomend not using the computer until fan is replaced.
yes it is possible to replace the fan, i would recomend that you replace it with an aftermarket cooler. all you need is what kind of CPU you have, then find out what kind of socket it is, from there you can find the cooler you would like.

Overheat errorhow to fix the problemi have Foxconn n15235 G41MD-Vwith pentium CPU


Download and run speed fan and monitor your temperatures to make sure there are no other possible issues. If the computer is unable to turn on, remove the power cable from the power supply on the back of the computer, open the tower, and re-seat all connections including the CPU. I would imagine since the motherboard is a socket 775 you will more than likely you will need to re-apply thermal paste (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835100007) to the heat sink or you need a new heat sink all together. Since your motherboard is a socket 775, here are a few heatsink/CPU cooler upgrades that may help the problem:
10$ and shorter overall profile since the case size is unknown
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186070
25$ and a bit taller, but I successfully used this heatsink for 7 years before it gave up.

Is ABIT SG-71 a Pentium 4 motherboard and what are the specs, the does and donts


The ABIT SG-71 is an Intel Socket 478 that could take a Pentium 4 or Celeron CPU (533/400MHz) designed for the 478 socket. It could support up to 2 GB of DDR 333 memory.

This motherboard may not be worth putting in a new CPU; it is over 10 year old technology. It's very old and slow compared to even two year old CPU and motherboard options.

Cindy Wells
(if you do want to replace the CPU, remove the old hardware. Use extreme care not to bend any pins on the CPU. Add new thermal paste to the top of the CPU and then put on the heatsink. Connect the CPU fan to the CPU fan header.)

Finding a cpu cooler replacement for motherboard with screwholes.


You should be able to purchase a cooler that fits your existing cooler plate.
Replacing a cooler can sometimes be a lot of work. Sometimes you have to remove the motherboard from the case and remove the cooler plate from the underside of the motherboard. Then coolers that use "just the holes" can be used. Or another (different) cooler plate can be installed that may have came with your new cooler. In my experience, the coolers that use "just the holes" (no plate) leave a lot to be desired. Plus, if you're not careful, you can damage the motherboard by applying too much force when installing the fan. If you use a new plate, don't forget to install the insulator between the motherboard and the plate, if it comes with one.
Be careful to protect against unwanted electrostatic discharge. Always touch the metal computer case before touching any parts inside the computer. Also, if you remove the mobo, take careful note of where all the wires go before disassembly.

How to change


Hi

Replacing the heatsink fan on a PC is not a difficult job, but it pays to be thorough, especially with cleaning the top of the CPU die before replacing the fan.

Don't be mean with money when choosing a new cooler either. With CPU coolers you get what you pay for. I personally always use coolers from a company called Zalman.

Ok ..with that out of the way ..the basics are ...remove old cooler..

They are either held on by a sprung clip that fits across the cooler and locates in lugs on the cpu socket surround, or they are held by screws that go through the motherboard.

Clean the top face of the cpu die carefully making sure to use a blunt implement ..... scratches on the machined face will lead to premature failure due to overheating.

If the cooler you buy has a "thermal pad" stuck to the face of the heatsink, then remove this too and clean up the heatsink face. Use good quality thermal paste on the top face of the CPU die, then fit the new cooler. Getting the right amount of thermal paste is a bit of an art .... too much is a bad as too little. The paste is NOT a glue. The paste simply fills in any imperfections on the machined surfaces of the cpu die and the heatsink to aid heat transfer.

Does this sound complicated? It isn't really. The key is not to rush it and make sure the surfaces are completley clean and the thermal paste applied correctly.

Here is a link to one tutorial on fitting cpu coolers that you might find useful:

P4 ugrade required


Sadly you wont find any 1066Mhz FSB processors for the Socket 478. The best you can find is the 3.4Ghz with 800Mhz FSB. It might be cheaper and also better value for you to get a Socket 775 based motherboard and Core2 Duo processor. The value range E2160/2180 processors or the E4300/4400 processors have been tested to be even faster than the Socket 775 Pentium Dual 3.4Ghz and they also use less power.

An article on socket 478 for you http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20040123103754.html

CPu fan turns for 1 second and then stops.


If all was working fine before, then, you have either not connected the cpu power cable, as is sometimes required other than being powered by the processor socket, or your power supply unit is not pentium 4 compatable and is unable to power the processor.

I have a Boot Problem with my INTEL P4 3.0Ghz. 800Mhz FSB,1M L2 Cache, Socket 478 CPU


I have experienced something similar with my new Core2Duo processor and a fairly new Socket 775 processor. Troubleshooting it led me to believe the CPU simply wasn't compatible with the motherboard. Although it's a shot in the dark, I suggest that you try out some of the following: - Did you try pulling out the graphics card to see if you got it to POST then? The graphics card or the monitor may need replacing. - Did you remove the RAM? - Are you sure all cables are attached properly? - Try to take out the CPU, talk to a friend with a socket 478 motherboard and replace his CPU with your CPU. Does it work now? If yes, motherboard needs to be replaced.
