To open the computer there will be 2 screws on the back on the side edge at the top and bottom, remove these and slide the side panel of the computer backwards and it should come off and you will see the fan in front of you, use a can CO contact cleaner (safe to use on all electrical parts) or canned air, if your computer is a different setup (as the make and model was not provided) send me the make and model and i'll get back to you with a more detailed answear

My dell leptop fan is not working is there any way to let me whether fan is burnt out or is not working due to accumulation of dust .

Fans generally are rather tough, they are built to survive the dust. These are brushless motor driven fans meaning that they work with a bit of circuitry located beneath the Hub. Clean the fan of dust and then apply 12DC to the correct polarity. It is possible that your fan has worn out which does occur after some years. A replacement fan and/cooler can be found either at your local computer store or on E-bay.

They are not too expensive considering that they save your CPU from overheating.

Take care!

The cooling fan on my Gateway 506GR has been noisy for several months. Now it "groans" every few minutes, but continues to run.

Have you cleaned all dust from the fan and inside the computer? If not disconnect all cables from the computer and take the tower outside. Remove the side panel and with a can of compressed air or an air compressor blow all dust from all fans, heat sinks, and all other components. Do not touch anything inside the computer without first grounding yourself to the chassis. If this does not solve your problem the fan needs replacing.

Dell Optiplex GX270 sounds like a jet taking off. What is wrong and what do I need to do to fix it?

You have to find out where the noise is coming from. It could be;
1) a fan on your motherboard if it has one
2) the fan on your heatsink that keeps your cpu cool
3) the fan on your power supply unit
4) a cd or dvd rom drive
5) one of your hard drives
6) one or more of your case fans.
7) a fan on your video card if you have one.

You don't want to open your power supply, so if this is the cause of the noise you can replace the whole PSU. Other than that, any other component listed above can be replaced by going to for parts.

Good luck,

One of my fans doesnot work

open the case, remove all the dust from the fan, DO THIS WITH THE COMPUTER OFF AND UNPLUGGED! If you've never looked inside the case.... you will be surprised at the amount of dust inside. Blow it out, make sure all fans turn freely. Plug it in and fire it up.

I've had a bad dust problem and my cpu fan began making a loud whirring noise and finally the computer shut down altogether. Took the cover off totally cleaned out the dust and turned the power back on....

If the computer detects overheating or fan failure it will shut down automatically. If you replace the fan you should be fine. Remove your old fan and try to get one that connects the same way, some of them connect directly to the heat sink, others to the motherboard.

well sometimes there are fixable if going to try use a small flat head screw driver and find the plastic clamps and gently pry if you break one don't cry because you probably have to buy a new anyway but its the learning experience you get by having the balls to try. well if you get it open check for dust chunks they do **** up a lot of dust be prepared for serious dust bunnies read the label is it bearingless or ball bearing give the blower blade a good spin does it seem a little wobbley or does it seem to want to stop as soon as you spin it then get a 9v battery and check if it will spin at all if it does put back together and thank GOD you didn't have to shell out that much money for little piece of plastic and a motor and if you do have to buy one pray to GOD you find a cheap one those super blows can get ridious on prices. well have a nice day (compaqsiget over and out have a nice day)
