Software messed with BIOS settings, HELP! - Page 3

post #21 of 36
have you checked what your case fan settings are set in the bios it may be that they were previously set to a different speed try adjusting some of the fan speeds or check to see if the fan controller is enabled ?? also are your case fans three pin or two pin ?? if three pin check they are in the right way round

@Quantum, when I reset my CMOS, I had unplugged the power cord, waited several minutes, pressed the power button and pressed a CMOS CLR button through the hole in the back of my case. I'm sure it was successful, because when i turned the PC back on, it told me to press F1 and took me to BIOS screen, also the clock resetted

@ATROXiUM. my case is kind of "shaking harder" occasionally now, and when it shakes, my desk vibrates also. But its the only difference from before, so definitely resetting CMOS did something. A friend of mine thinks that when I messed with BIOS, fan speeds increased and they came off a bit, so the sound i hear is because of the contact between the case and the fan structure...

@cdesewell, taking into consideration all components installed, what would be the optimal fan speed? I don't want to increase or decrease too much. My computer wasnt built by me, so I don't know what the BIOS was set to, anyway arent the default values SUPPOSED to make the pc work fine?

The defaults are usually pretty generous, but they sometimes involve fan speed settings that adjust based on temperature. Look for something like "Q-Fan" or "Silent Fan" or such - just disable them and let your fans run on full.

Example.

Will try that, will edit after trying. Oh and the fans I'm using are spire fans, supposed to be silent because of the design.

EDIT: Couldnt' find anything fan-related, found a Cool'N'Quiet that is set to enabled, but doesn't know if it is fan-related, the description doesn't say anything about fans.

EDIT2: When I turned up my PC I realized that the HARDER shaking issue (which is easily noticeable cuz the desk shakes more, and a sound is emitted, probably cuz of the shaking) only happens when the PC turns on, after a minute it stops and i only feel smaller occasional vibrations on my desk (which arent normal, and i have to pay attention to hear the different noise). Rarely the harder shaking/sound happens after the first minute (once every 2-3 minutes, somtimes a big delay). Strange.

That shaking is probably your hard drive, or your optical drive. Leave Cool'n'Quiet enabled if you're not overclocking, it slows the CPU down when you're not doing processor-intensive tasks.

As for the fans, look under Power, Hardware Monitor. Or some variant thereof.

As said above if you have a controller like q fan or cool n quiet then use that but if not you then just experiment until you find a noise level that you are confutable with. If your not overclocking then you could get away will having fairly low case speeds maybe 30-40%

the default settings will be whatever configuration works on a majority of different hardware setups it wont be tailored to yours specifically so there is nothing wrong with adjusting or tuning these settings you suite your system. As you said the defaults are configured to work but thats not nessicarly the best it can be.

When you talk about your computer shaking, is it only vibrations or like there's 2 squirrels fighting inside of it (since you say it causes your desk to shake)? If it's only small vibrations, this is perfectly normal. This is caused by you hard drive or your optical drive. They have a head that spins at 7,2k rpm in the case of your hard drive in order to read data. Because of the speed of it, it's normal to have vibrations. You could still get one of those if it bothers you to much:

The second one is cheaper and probably just as good so I'd get it over the first one. Good luck!

Yeah that's the fans and drives for sure unless it's like an earthquake in your computer so nothing to worry about

Did you build this PC or not? If you built it, you should know the bios settings to use. Just set defaults settings, save them, reboot, and then adjust bios settings to what you need or had before.
