Some of those OEM systems have built in fail safe's like that to try and keep them running longer w/o failing. Just get a hold of Dell and get a replacement fan, they should send instructions on how to put it in yourself! :)

Hi, When I try to start my Dimemsion 5150C in Windows XP computer, I received one of the following error messages "Floppy diskette seek failure Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup...


The "floppy" disk-drive (3.5-inch diskette) on your computer is broken.
Press F1 to ignore the error, and to boot from your C: drive.
Or, press F2 to enter BIOS SETUP, and then navigate through those "setup" screens to tell the computer to "disable floppy seek", or change the setting from "3.5 1.44Mb drive" to "none".
Or, take the computer to a technician, and buy a replacement disk-drive, and get it installed.

Hello at start up of my dell 9150 i have this message "card cage fan failure" so i press F1 and the computer work but do i have a solution to not having this message again?


Yes, you need to replace that fan and not run your computer without it working because it can cause it to overheat and then you'll have to replace a lot more than just a fan. Open up the side of your computer and see which fan is not moving when the computer is turned on but it will be the one attached to the card cage :c)

CPU cooling fan


Hi...you can press the F2 key to enter setup...and scroll down until the fan is highlited...hit enter and then F10 to save and exit.This tells the computer its OK.
you should have plugged the fan in the same pin port the old fan was in. Usually only 1,.
If the new fan is not from dell..it may be faster and noiser..or it may be faulty..if you bought it locally you may try to return it.
The purpose of the fan of course is to remove the hot air from the CPU to keep it from overheating. If this fan does it it is most likely ok.
Hope this helps..
