A control method of over-temperature protection, a driver chip and a control system of over-temperature protection are disclosed. The control method includes the following steps: a driver chip provides an output voltage to drive a DC fan. A temperature of the driver chip is detected by an over-temperature detection module. When the temperature of the driver chip is higher than a first threshold value, the power supplying to the driver chip is stopped, so that the driver chip can cool down. After the temperature of the driver chip is lower than a second threshold value, the driver chip is restarted. A preset voltage is provided to the DC fan by the driver chip and the DC fan rotates at a preset rotational speed which is higher than the rotational speed.

A computer status diagnosis chip and a computer status diagnosis system including the same are provided. The chip is connected with the computer chip set and the first audio generator, and includes a receiving unit, an audio encoder and a driving unit. The receiving unit receives a detection signal from the computer chip set, and the audio encoder is connected to the receiving unit and encodes the detection signal as a first audio signal. The driving unit drives the first audio generator according to the first audio signal. By acoustic wave, the first audio generator transmits the first audio signal to a first audio receiver. Upon receipt of the first audio signal, an application program installed in the smart device is used to decode the first audio signal to obtain the detection signal, and a computer status is displayed on the smart device.

A reference voltage circuit is provided, which includes bandgap reference circuit, bias current generator, first capacitor, second capacitor, comparator and control logic circuit. In the active mode of the control logic circuit, the control logic circuit controls the bandgap reference circuit to deliver bandgap reference voltage. The comparator transmits first comparison signal to control logic circuit when the first and second capacitors are charged to the bandgap reference voltage. The control logic circuit enters low power mode and controls the bandgap reference circuit to stop delivering the bandgap reference voltage. If the comparator detects the potential difference between the first capacitor and second capacitor exceeds the threshold value, the control logic circuit returns to active mode according to the second comparison signal transmitted form the comparator.
