Before i continue, so the thing is; I recently got a new PC and it would be an understatement if i said “i was super-excited” to have it in my possession!
I mean a perfect working PC is something I’ve been wishing and working so hard to get all these years but one thing or the other always prevent me from getting it. In case you do not know, I’ve been a Mobi-Blogger (checkout the meaning in the No #1 list on this post ) all these years.
When i got the Laptop, turns out the processor fan wasn’t working which means an imminent big trouble for the innocent PC.
All i know is, I would be using the computer for a while and suddenly without warning, the PC would just shut itself down. I powered it on again but the issue was still the same and that’s how i realized there is something wrong with it.
Fortunately i had someone who is like 3 in 1 to me(a mentor, a dad and an uncle *winks* ) whom is a guru in computer hardware engineering but now a programmer. I told him about the situation with the PC and he said;
“In this case, there are 3 things involved.
1. The processor fan might not be properly connected to the motherboard,2. The Processor fan was blocked by dirt or3. It is no longer functional”
He later unscrewed the laptop, carefully removed the fan and turns out THE PROCESSOR FAN WAS BLOCKED BY DIRT! The dirt was so much that i couldn’t help but wonder how it got them.
After the removal of the dirt, the processor fan was then fixed back and eureka! it started working back!
So when your laptop processor fan stopped working, check the fan first maybe there were dirt preventing it from working!
As simple as ABC
