Why the card cage fan is working faster in dell precision 380 without getting slower?

Don't try to slow down the speed if you don't know the temperature from your processor or your motherboard. Look on the web for a monitor program to see if one of them is getting real warm Like above 60 degrees Celsius. Then your fan will work as hell.
If the computer is a bit older, perhaps the cooling paste, between the processor and the cooling body on the processor is dried. Only use the correct cooling past, and not anything else. Don't allow the processor to heat up above 65 degrees Celsius, because it won't live long after that.
If you do have a monitor program, you could slow down the fan, without any risk.

    I have an IBM Thinkpad 1200 and its running slow, i need to change the CPU to a faster one. What CPU is available for it?

    I think cpu changing is not wise in budgetry if really you need to make your device faster .
    if really you want to make it faster just change the motherboard and cpu to gether but still its not resionable.
    better to try and increese the ram and the use faster hard drive .
    and run only the programs only required by disabling application on startup.

    My computer is really slow going into differnt sites....the compressor fan is slow to start up...had my computer stripped down and tuned up, but it's still slow...they said the cpu is showing its age,...

    Your computer going slow could be for the following reasons: 1 Not enough RAM - remove unwanted files by cleaning the disc. Also defragment the computer. Increase the RAM 2 Virus - remove the virus 3 If you do the above you will see the improvement and no need to have a new cpu

    Cooling fan stopped, supply overheats

    Most probably it is fried. Take out the power supply. Then test it if it will start by shorting the power on wire to ground wire for a short time. Then read the voltage readings on terminal output of power supply that connects to the motherboard 2O pins header. If within spec then change the supply fan. If not then buy another one it is more costly to repair than to buy a new one.

    If you don't know this have a friend with knowledge assist you.

    Loud noise grinding sound computer works ok. Noise seems to be coming from fan cpu area

    Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

    I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

    take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
    While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

    If it is it will have to be re-seated.

    If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)

    DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

    You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

    DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

    Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)

    Be careful about how much you put on

    Here are
    some basic instructions

    Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

    If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

    If it the Powers supply fan then these ase sometimes replaceable.
    Beware howeve that even after disconnection high voltage may still be side the PSU.

    Better to replace the whole power supply witha the same or greater wattage.

    Hello, i want to change CPU in my Toshiba L100-119[CeleronM-380(Dothan1.6)] to better one. I have problems when finding maxium CPU approved for L100 mainboard. Thank YOU for an answer.

    it only supports up to a 533mhz front side bus(fsb)
    since you have a dothan(newer) just look for a p4m (m for mobile) processor with a 533fsb and probably without HT and under 2.8ghz to be safe (i cant say a 2.8 will work or not but at least you have a direction)

    btw any penium 4 m is faster than the celeron you have
    another thing heat will be higher, clear dust and use tiny amount of arctic silver 5
    and battery time will be down

    There can be many things that can cause your computer to slow down.
    First of all Viruses .. some viruses once in the computer are difficult to be recognized by normal anit-viruses they generally make your computer go slow, such a problem can be solved either by getting a better anti virus or by formatting your system
    There can be another reason... have you check how many processes are running on your comp?
    ctrl + alt + delete go to processes... now a normal XP os needs only 17-20 applications to run properly ... so anything in excess to it is being run on your computer to provide some sort of service to you(you must not start stopping those extra processes w/o knows what they are doing).Try closing some of the applications this should make your computer work faster
    There can be another reason... the drive space in your OS drive Say Drive C is very less ... should be above 500 Mb for smooth functioning.. in such a case delete unwanted files..
    for further assistance feel free to mail me at
