I'm not entirely sure from your description what you did, but one thing i've noticed is that unless your replacement fan uses the same on board power connection that your original one uses, your PC will think you don't have one installed.

as long as its functioning properly, you can disable this error message in the BIOS.

hope this helps

Is it alroght to use this fan on an AMD Phenom X4 9450e Quad core Processor? Is is adquate?


It will work but I'd personally not use it as a long term prospect. Given the cpu you have, I'd buy a better spec model with more comprehensive cooling

I have had my dell for about 6yrs, I need to replace both cooling fans and don`t know what to order!


Can't point you towards a specific model of fan or fans without knowing your specific Dell model.. BUT luckily there are standard sizes for cooling fans - quite a few sizes - but since we're talking about a 6 yr old Dell, well that narrows it down a little bit. Here's what you should do first: take a plain old ruler that measures in millimeters/centimeters and take a measurement of one of the sides on each existing fan (don't measure corner-to-corner). Your ruler will be easiest to read in centimeters but most fans are sized in millimeters until they start to hit 120mm and above. Most cooling fans are the same but there are two main jobs they've got to perform: cooling the case, or tower... and cooling the CPU, or processor. Case fans are straightforward and typically measure either 80mm or 120mm, and as I'm sure you're aware, are responsible for exhausting warm air. Let me guess -- is there a dusty green shroud that covers the processor and its cooling fan? Maybe not -- but most of the time these guys were present in 2004-era Dells (as well as today) - and the case fan would sit at the very back and pull air through. (Is the case fan attached using rubber cone fasteners? Yeah if thats the deal then those are toast, unless you're a surgeon for your day job). The rubber plugs are for noise isolation (and cost cutting) but not to worry -- your new case fan will be the strong silent type. Dell probably has a smaller Foxconn or JMC fan sitting on top of a heat sink, which is contacting the CPU (Pentium 4?). That size will probably be 50mm but my recommendation would be to determine what socket type you're using -- and with this information, you can just purchase a new modern CPU cooler (heat sink and integrated fan, maybe copper heat spreaders, yada yada). ---If you're comfortable enough to switch out fans then you can handle a Pentium cooler switcheroo.--- (An instruction manual would be supplied, btw). But you'd just pop the bracket or clips securing the heat sink to the CPU, pull it up and outta there, wipe off the exposed CPU surface with a dry microfiber -- or use wadding polish like Eagle Nevr-Dull and THEN use the microfiber, apply PEA-SIZED drop of thermal paste to surface of processor (paste comes with the cooler), clip on said cooler, and open beer. Here are some links to go look at... (there are literally trillions of online merchants selling compustuff) -- newegg.com is always a good one of course due to great cust svc and practically next-day "ground" shipping; for in-person purchasing, you can't beat Micro Center (microcenter.com), but they may not have a store nearby. Check these guys out - I've used them for Dell-specific parts before and I like how you can search for components based on socket type, processor model, etc... http://www.directron.com/cpu---coolers-cpu-coolers.html This page will list a bunch of socket types from which to choose -- and if you're using a Pentium 4 on a 2004 or 2005 Dimension, for example, you'd probably want to click the Socket 478. If you're unsure, go to support.dell.com and plug in your service tag and pull your orig specs.
(Complete alternative: Dell Outlet Store... refurbished Core2Duo or Core2Quad with 4GB dual-channel memory, or hey I'll build you a 10-year future proof system - you pick the case design - for less $$ and will make Dell's cookie cutter systems look like.. well, cookie cutter systems.) Bestoluck!

When i boot up the laptop i get a message 'Main Fan Error' the fan runs on start up then stops just before i get the error message. Fan will not restart... Joseph


Hi,

This message means that the fan on your CPU (processor) is failing or has failed. This is not good because if the fan on the CPU fails your CPU will overheat and cause your machine to lock up and become non-functional till it cools down and then the same cycle will repeat till the fan is replaced.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Trying to find out what kind of fan is on my CPU, computer is a Istart C2389 by packard bell. Fan model is B7064NC made by AVC but cant find a replacement.


The manufacturer's site says the processor is a Pentium 4 socket 775. You don't need to look for the exact replacement part. Just order a socket 775 CPU cooler from any of the many online vendors and replace the one currently installed.

Auto shut down occurs due to overheating


you might want to replace the CPU fan and re apply a thermal paste between your processor and heatsink. Make sure the heatsink and CPU fan is securely in place to avoid thermal problems

My bios shows system fan speed as 0. It seems all fans are working, but i keep getting temp alarms. any ideas? I can see a fan at the front, one at the back, one CPU fan, one graphics card fan & two...


See (in the CMOS SETUP ) if the processor temperature is between 30 and about 50 degrees celcius. If it is way above that then the thermal paste between the fan and the processo has hardened and the contactbetween the processor and the fan is POOR . Replace the paste withy NEW paste. (a thin layer) That usually sorts out that problem.

Noisy fan


You need to replace the fan. Measure the fan you have now and buy one the same diameter. Then remove the old fan and put in the new fan.

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:

http://www.svc.com/saf-b82-19.html

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