ibm mobo 3.0ghz stop responding so i cleaned power supply now fan wont stop spinning but everything else seem to work except no beeps
and screen still blank.also swiped memory sticks and bought new cmos battery.
When you say you cleaned the CPU fan... and now it won't stop spinning... just how full of crap was the fan?? full enough it didn't spin before? Did the awful smell of burning lint and dirt alert you to the need to clean the fan out?
It is normal for the fan to never stop spinning while the machine is on.
the fan is fine it was the power supply i cleaned and no its not normal it should make pulse not spinning constantly. the power supply was dirty as hell i even got a brand new power supply still does the same thing, what happen i saw the fan spin for a sec and stop dead then i cleaned power supply and now the fan keeps spinning but power the to board u can hear the hard drive/dvd drive lite ups but nothing on screen..everything clean i checked cpu no burn mark/capacitors not swolling..i was maybe thinking the fan wiring done..
