So I really need some PC troubleshooting advice. Since a day or two my CPU fan cooler no longer wants to spin. The only method for me to get it to work, is for me to push it until it does it by itself.
At first, I thought it was just because there was a lot of dust. I cleaned the inside of my PC with a dust blower (and boy, there was a lot of dust in there) and that seems to have helped for a day or two.
But then one morning my PC would suddenly shut down a couple of minutes after I had started it up. Confused I tried to figure out what was going wrong and noticed that my CPU fan wasn’t spinning.
So, I looked online and noticed that this could happen if there is a thick layer of dust on the blades. So I went ahead and cleaned all the blades. Still, the issue remains.
Now I’m starting to think it maybe an issue with the fan port on the motherboard, but was wondering if anyone encountered a similar issue like this.
What would the best approach be? I feel like I’ll be forced to buy another CPU cooler, which is kinda sad cause this one is only about a year old.
