    I've been having some majar problems re-installing XP Pro on my system,
    whiles removing device one by one to determine any hardware faults I noticed
    the fan for the chipset is not spinning.

    Will this cause my machine to freeze? (It always freeze on the windows

  2. It is possible, however the VIA KT133A chipset does not require active
    cooling. A passive heatsink is usually sufficient.

    While you're in there, check your motherboard for bulging or leaking
    capacitors which plague many boards of that era.

    Ok,will be getting another fan for the chipset and hopefully that is causing
    the problem.

    Just that when I got the board, the chipset fan came with it, so I assume
    its pretty important.

    Looked around the board, as fas I can see no signs of bulging or leaking.
