Hello KOKOBEAR,

Is your computer more than a couple years old? If so, then the internal components, like the fans and heatsink may be dusty. When those parts get really thick dusty, the fans are not as efficient, and have to run harder to keep the computer cool.

If you're comfortable opening your case, you can take a look and see if there's a lot of dust. You may want to have an experienced friend or technician do the cleanup, as you may need to take off a part or two to do the really deep cleaning.

Hi My dell Precision T7500 makes huge fan noise constantly. It is the front cage fan and is a new original Dell part.


Edward Farren-Price,
The 2 video cards put off a lot of heat. The fan needs to run to keep the system from overheating. If the fan has alot of dust build up you may want to use some canned air to blow the dust off. You can click the link below to download the online service manual. The manual provides information on the location of parts within your computer.

Hello, it seems you have more than one issue at hand but lets start with the blue screen, this is typically caused by driver errors on your system. You should check the manufacturers website for the latest drivers available for your system. The CPU is a bunch of different issues so it's hard to zone in on one. Most likely cause lack of RAM, best possible solution try not running too many programs simultaneously. If you are willing to spend on this computer there a lot of programs available online to aid in improving the overall performance of the system one such is Ashampoo win optimizer.

Fans on Mac Intel Tower


I would suspect it needs a good internal cleaning. The accumulated dust will cause the computer to overheat. Disconnect all cables and take the unit to a place where you can clean it. Remove the side panel and then with a can of compressed air or an air compressor blow all dust out of the unit. Pay special attention to the heat sink on the processor. Make sure you clean the power supply fan. Be sure and not touch any internal components without first grounding yourself to the chassis. It is best to do this outside as the dust will fly everywhere. You should clean the inside at least once a year. Merry Christmas.

If the system is older,you may be limited by the BIOS. Many old systems do not recognize a partition with Windows.
Have you run fdisk for the format and partition setup?
Did you check the BIOS at startup? Make sure it recognizes the drive in BIOS and sees the partition. Hit F2 on bootup.
If it sees the drive, use a boot disk and run fdisk. Check the parameters and then run the install again.

Restart the computer and boot into Safe Mode.
Open the Start Menu.
In the white line (Start Search) area, type cmd
Right click on cmd (at Top), and click on Run as administrator.
In the command prompt, type chkdsk c: /f
If it still runs loud after I recommend replacing the hard drive.
