Hi

My fans on my PC tower have stopped spinning?

Does anyone have any recommendations or has this happened to you before

Does your pc use a fan controller / hub that they are all plugged into? Or do they plug individually directly in to the motherboard?

They are plugged into a controller! I have checked they are all plugged in securely

Sam's problem seems to be fixed


EDIT : Explanation as recommended by Zesri
The problem was Isolated to be the Fan Controller being temperamental.
Sam removed the fans from the fan controller and did a restart which had solved the problem.
In future if the problem persists or for anyone else having the same issue, you can see from Sam's image above that the Controller has a "Reset Switch" connector, this can be the problem majority of the time. If removing the fans from the controller and rebooting doesnt solve your issue, It is then usually solved by removing the Reset Switch connector and purging the connection between the two pins that are connected to the Fan Controller where the Reset Switch connector will plug into. Which completes the electrical circuit and resets the controller entirely, by using something metal to connect the two pins on the Fan Controllers circuit board Simples!
