Your system will run fine until the processor starts overheating... why not just replace the fan?

I have a dell xps 1210 the cooling fan stopped working I replaced it with a new one and it still won't work


The motherboard may have several 3-pin connectors, for installing fans in different places. Connect the cooling-fan to one of those "alternate" connectors, and start-up your computer, to see if the fan spins.

Try a different power-supply.

Try both the "old" and "new" cooling-fans in a different motherboard, to see if they spin at all.

Dell Inspiron Fan running constantly and very loud. Can I replace with Quieter Fan? If so, what fan model and Who would you suggest have replace it? Or are there other options? This is driving me...


Stock fans tend to be very loud. If this is a laptop your probably SOL on finding a compatible replacement. If this is a desktop then just buy the same dimensions or just by the fan/heat sink combo's of the same size.
From looking up the fan in question I'd say this is a laptop and there isn't much you can do about it

Latitude e6500 runs hot how do i boost the fan


You may need to clean the fan and heatsink of dust. See the dust restricts the cool air from reaching the heatsink and this in turn causes your fan to spin faster. The computer's BIOS is programmed to increase CPU fan speed as CPU tempreature increases. If your fan is very loud, then it is running at the maximum speed possible. A clean heatsink will decrease the Processor's temperature.

Installing additional fans in your computer's chassis is an effective way of bringing the temperatures down. Install the biggest fans that your chassis supports. 120mm fans are better than 80mm fans as they can spin at slower speeds to provide the same airflow of a smaller fan. Therefore giving you a quiet computer.

Use a program called Speed Fan to ensure that your fans are indeed running at the desirable level of 100%

Take care!

Fan Noise on Dell Dimension 8100


All computer fans have a general design.  The name in front of "fan" really refers to the designation.  You'll see case fan, processor fan, CPU fan, cooling fan, etc.  In the case of CPU/Processor fan, some are sold with heatsinks (the metal block sitting on top of your CPU).

The first thing you want to do is make sure the fan is clean.  Chances are dust buildup is causing the excess noise.

If that's not the case and you're looking to replace the fan, then you first need to find out the size of the fan. General sizes(diameter X width in mm) are listed on this page:

http://www.svc.com/case-fans.html

Generally, you're looking for something that will match the size of what you're replacing & push enough air at a reasonable noise level to cool the heatsink/CPU.  You want to stay in the area of 30dBA max for noise.  You also want to see if it has a 3-pin or 4-pin connection.

For example, if you have an 80mm fan, I would suggest something like this:

It's pretty quiet with good airflow.  Also, it has a 3-pin connection, but includes an adapter for a 4-pin connection.
