SOURCE: How do I enable the inbuilt webcam on my DELL D430 laptop?

Hi scottie_dorn,
this isn't a webcam, it's an ambient light sensor, I'm afraid. Just to make sure: assuming that you're running a Windows-system, please open the device manager and have a look at "Audio, Video..." whether there is an entry regarding a webcam. I'm pretty sure, there isn't one... Greetings from Germany,

SOURCE: Problem with Fan - Dell Laptop Inspiron B130 ?

Hello,

If the fan is dead, then the laptop will shut itself off after a short while to prevent heat damage. It is normal for the fan to spin up when you turn on the laptop and then stop turning. The fan will kick in again when it is needed as heat builds up. The system fan has absolutely nothing to do with the lcd lighting up.......seriously.

If the laptop is running, but the screen goes dark after a few seconds, it sounds more like the backlight on the lcd panel is shot. From what you describe, I assume that your lcd is not 'lit up' at all, but you can see a faint image on the screen. If this is the case, then either the inverter board is shot, or the backlight for the lcd panel is dead. You can try calling Dell at 1-800-www-dell and try to purchase an inverter board. They are cheap, and it would be worth the gamble to buy one, because if the backlight is shot, then you need a new lcd panel - $350+ (the backlight is part of it and not replaceable). The inverter board is located at the bottom of the display module, right behind the dell logo at the bottom of the display. It's quite easy to get at.

Here's a good test. Shut the laptop off, and attach a computer monitor to the 15 pin vga connector at the left side of the laptop. Turn on the laptop and the monitor should show you an image. If not, try holding the blue 'fn' key and press and release the f8 key. This should switch you over to the external monitor. If the laptop works fine when connected to an external monitor but has no image, then it's definitely not the fan, and you should try an inverter board. If still no good with a new inverter board, you can still use the laptop with an external monitor.

Hope this helps!.......let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: how to replace bad cooling fan on dell inspiron 1521 laptop

Replacing the fan is easy, once you remove the drives, the panels from the bottom, etc. Remove the keyboard and unscrew the frame. then the laptop clicks apart. The fan can be removed replaced.

While you can replace the fan fairly easily, they are expensive if you have to buy one from DELL. You might be able to substitute one from another laptop however.

The problem on the Dell Inspiron though is not the fan, but the design. It does not dissipate heat well, cycling heat poorly throughout the casing and ultimately over the drive before exiting from a primary vent on the side which needs to be higher to get good air flow. The air gets so hot and dirty that it eventually clogs up the fan and over heats the drive.

As a matter of fact, even when the fan is running normally the drive often fails anyway right around the two year mark. My last two companies have bought these and you can almost set your watch by the drive failures.

The solution, is a $5 cooling tray like cooks use for cookies. The metal grill will lift the laptop about 1.5 inches off the surface your working on and allow air to move freely in and out of the vent on the side.

How to replace fan ?


I would recommend searching the brand and model of your laptop. If you need to find the fan, search 'Brand Model # fan' on Google (or your preferred parts site. For example 'Dell Vostro 1720 fan'. If you need the physical replacement instructions, then add 'replacement' or 'disassembly', such as 'Dell Vostro 1720 fan replacement' or 'Dell Vostro 1720 disassembly'. (I used a sample laptop model for these instructions; replace 'Dell Vostro 1720' with your laptop model.)

I already change the adapter but same result.


If your adapter is ok, the most possible problem is that your laptop dc power jack. So you may check it out. Either replace it or get it repaired.

My dell inspiron laptop produces howling


I believe the problem may be the cooling fan, of the Fan Assembly.

Dirt, dust, hair, food crumbs, lint, you name it, can be drawn up into the laptop by this fan.
This can cause a strain on the fan's bearings.

It could also be that the fan's bearings have simply failed. They are dry, hence the occasional howling noise.

The method is to open the laptop, and physically check the fan.

Dell Support > Inspiron 5100 Notebook PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins5100/en/sm/index.htm

FIRST thing;
FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Suggest wear an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source. (Electro Static Discharge)

Basic example of an ESD wrist strap,

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

[ I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case. Just one example ]

On the Dell Support > Service Manual page, click on -
Microprocessor Thermal-Cooling Assembly

This shows the Fan Assembly. It is connected to the Microprocessor Thermal-Cooling Assembly.

Another view of the Fan Assembly,

http://www.brilliantstore.com/laptop-cooling-pad-dell-cpa-1606.html

View of the Microprocessor Thermal-Cooling Assembly, with the Fan Assembly,

http://www.laptopbattery-usa.com/dell-inspiron-1100-5100-5150-laptop-cpu-cooling-fan-p-1238.html?zenid=okh2t54jgsg369stoj7gipf3k5

See the 4 screws sticking up, and the squarish metal plate they go down in?
This plate sits on top of the Processor.

The two curved slightly flattened copper pipes, are Cooling Tubes.
They are sealed on both ends, and are filled with Nitrogen.

They attach to the squarish metal plate, that sits on top of the Processor, and the other end of them goes to a Heatsink.

This cannot be seen in the photo.
The Heatsink is a rectangular finned object.
Has Tall, Thin, fins.

Heat is absorbed from the Processor, by the squarish metal plate sitting on top of it.The Cooling Tubes then absorb the heat from the squarish metal plate.

Heat is then transferred along the Cooling Tubes, to the Heatsink.
The Heatsink absorbs the heat, then radiates it away with it's fins.
Air from the Fan Assembly, helps carry heat away from the Heatsink fins.

The Fan's blades, center hub, and surrounding cage, (Shroud), must be clean. If the fan's blades are dirty, the result could be an unbalanced fan.

Makes the fan tilt to one side, and possibly scrape the blades on the Shroud.
Also over time the dirt, dust, etc, can cause the Fan's bearings to fail.

Gently see if you can move the Fan up, and down. Gently grab a blade of the Fan, and see if you can move the Fan. You will know if the Fan's blades have too much movement up, and down. (Or tilt to the side)

If the Fan is bad, (Bearings), see if you can buy just the Fan, and replace it.
If not you may wish to replace the entire Microprocessor Thermal-Cooling Assembly.

Should this be the case post back in a Comment.
I need to guide you in proper replacement.

[ You need to Thoroughly clean the top of the Processor, and the bottom of the squarish metal plate that sits on it.
Then Thermal Paste needs to be Properly applied, and the 4 screws tightened down in a sequence ]

My Dell Inspiron 15R fan is not working....the laptop gets overheated due to this & shuts down after 15-20 minutes.The laptop has exceeded its warranty period.I had bought the laptop in May 2010.


When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

How do you replace the cooling fan of the Dell dimension 2400 desktop computer?


To replace the cooling fan follow these steps:-


You will notice that replacing the fan is not specifically mentioned, but it should be fairly easy.


Open the case as noted in the instructions, follow the power wire from the fan to the motherboard, then unplug the connector from the motherboard, and remove the assembly.


Some of the earlier fan shrouds just lift up and out, but others have tabs to hold them in.


Regarding the fan, there might be two release levers accessible from inside the case, but the one by the PSU can be hard to reach.


It might easier to push the retaining tabs, in from outside, using a small screwdriver, pen or whatever.


The installation of the new fan, is just a matter of fixing the new one in place and connecting the cable.

Good luck, and do rate the solution if got help

Replacing fan on dell latitude cpt lap top


Noel, it's hard to get such pictures. Do this:

Get your new fan from a source or take the laptop in with you. They will know what type fan it is. Laptop fans can be near impossible to get; hey are different and make specific. Most people will replace it for you if they have it for little change. If you already have one, you will need to say what type of laptop it is. They all open different and fans are in different posotions.
