The fan is only meant to run when the laptop starts too get warm so don't worry about it. I'd be more worried if the fan never came on at all and would leave computer running to make sure it did come on eventually. Some laptops get warm quickly, others take longer, a lot depends on where the vents are. If your laptop has vents underneath and if your actually using the laptop on your lap then it's a good idea to place laptop on a book (A4 folder is ideal cos it also gives a better typing angle) as this ensures there is an airflow all the time. If your concerned about the temperature then you can download a temperature checker.

1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JqB4lkVxkA

2) Or take the laptop to the nearest authorized Dell repair shop; your ID, proof of purchase of laptop, and a credit card. Dell representative will ask Dell for a Master Password. Dell rep will then reset to NO password, or one you want. Dell rep KEEPS master password.

Removing CMOS Battery (Real Time Clock Battery. Also called Coin-Cell battery), will NOT work.

Start up problem in dell laptop


I am thinking that either spyware or a virus might have currupted one your booting files. You need to run anti spyware software and/or antivirus software. Try Windows live one care software this have a 90 free trial version, run it in safe mode and see what happends.

Let me know if it works.
