Fans not spinning right
 
i've got a fan from an old PSU, and a fan on my GeForce2mx that aren't spinning properly, i've cleaned them out with paper towel very carefully, but that didn't really help.

Any suggestions?

I suggest this !

I wouldn't suggest all that at all. Lubricating the magnet is completely pointless and is a pain to get at.

Instead, do the first three steps/pictures, so you have access to the bearing assembly, and then put a drop of oil in there. Note that not all fans have anything other than a sticker over the back end of the bearing assembly.

Yarrh small thread hi-jack, I have just put a Evo 33 heatsink on my Asus SLI deluxe and in the bios my fan RPM is tottaly random it will go from 0-4000-3000-10-100-20 etc yet the fan to the eye isn't changing speed. However it is causeing the system to stop on boot due to the fan being too slow

CapitanC make sure that you use very sight oil, like sewing machine oil and not to much or it will spin very slow.

Is it a three-wire fan? If so, then either the fan is messed up and not sending the proper information to the fan speed sensor, or the fan speed sensor is messed up (meaning a chip on your mobo is hurt).

If it isn't a three-wire fan, then that's your problem. You need a three-wire fan to get fan speeds.
