    Question What's up with my CPU cooler?

    Hey there,
    So, in BIOS it says that the CPU cooler is at 0 RPM, so it means that it's not spinning at all... When I opened it everything was working fine, but the bios still says 0 RPM. So here is what's happening, I start a game that needs more graphics performance, such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Lucius, even Vine videos, the computer lags for about 3 seconds and freezes until I force it to shut down by holding the power off button and then powering it on again. Maybe it's connected to the graphics card, maybe it's connected to the game (this never happens when I play Audiosurf, but it's a very low quality game), or maybe it's my Windows XP glitching or bugging because Microsoft doesn't support it any more, plus its 32bit (x86). :p :(
    I would be very happy if someone here is able to help me.

    Unhappy Re: What's up with my CPU cooler?

    I used a program called SpeedFan (v4.49) from here: SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer and in the Charts tab when selecting Fan Speeds it only shows up Fan3.

    It would help if we knew what CPU cooler and fan you're using, not to mention the board and CPU...

    How about using a three pin fan on a four pin fan header? But we just don't know...

    Plus your 5V and 12V voltages are close to being outside the ATX specs: 5V - +4.75 V to +5.25 V. 12V - +11.40 V to +12.60 V.

    Post Re: What's up with my CPU cooler?

    This is what I have:
    CPU: Intel Pentium 4 650 (3.40 GHz, 1 core, 2 threads, installed on LGA775)
    Motherboard: MSI G41M-P26 (MS-7592)
    I can't find a program or document from which I can see what is the certain cooler type, I know it's a Cooler Master. There is one 2 pin cable with a closed end hanging loose with a label "Do not pull", one 3 pin that goes into the motherboard.

    PS: I'm planning to change my CPU to an Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 (2M cache, 1.86 GHz, 2 cores).

    ATX Specs for PSU's are +/- 5% regulation on each of the 3.3v, 5v and 12v lines.

    Your PSU's voltage regulation is not looking good as represented by the numbers in that screenshot.

    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.

    #3 - Please use the PSU Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be the PSU causing issues. I do(Lifetime PRO ver.) and will mention so if it is marginal for your build.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    wardog is right, the 5V power rail is showing 4.792V, and the lowest ATX in spec voltage for the 5V power rail is 4.75V. Your 4.792V is 0.042V over the lowest in-spec voltage, 42/1000th Volt.

    The 12V power rail is showing 11.740V, and the lowest ATX in spec voltage for the 12V power rail is 11.40V. Your 11.740V is 0.34V over the lowest in-spec voltage, 34/100th Volt.

    So check those voltages in the BIOS now and then, and if they go lower or you start to have problems with the PC, your power supply needs replacing. Or find another hardware monitoring program and see what the voltages are in Windows.

    It looks like you might have your three pin CPU fan connected to the three pin SYS Fan connector, instead of the four pin CPU Fan connector. Or you have the three pin fan on the CPU Fan connector, which should read the speed fine, but it might be on wrong.

    So, tomorrow I'm thinking of changing the CPU to an Intel Core 2 Quad (not Core 2 Duo as I mentioned in a post before), and maybe I'll replace the CPU cooler with a stock cooler (I think it's older)... And I wanted to ask you if my PC as it is can damage the new CPU? If I change the CPU and the CPU fan, and something in BIOS changes I'll keep you updated with photos.
    And one BIG THANKS to you guys for the support! :D

    Look closely at the motherboard fan header where your current cpu fan is plugged in.
    You should see writing near this connector that has the name of the fan header.
    If the name near the fan header is NOT CPUFAN1 this is why your screen-shot shows 0 rpm.
