    If you pull apart the power supply? you may have grounded out the power supply, or the one of the cricits may be crossed or broken.

My Dell Dimension 5150 has always had a loud fan but it has gotten significantly worse over the past two weeks. It now sounds like I am at the World Cup! I believe I have traced the noise to the fan in...


No. You can take apart the power supply, detach the fan, clean it, clean the power supply(capacitors, core), put it together and see if it makes the same sound.
Also check the fan of the CPU cooler, you may have to clean that too. But be careful when you remove the cooler from the CPU. You will need silica paste to protect the core of the processor. You can find it in small 5 grams packs. Clean the back of the cooler and the processor with some medicinal alcohol, let them dry and then put them back. Do not forget about the paste. It is a very important component in order to keep the processor at a decent temperature.
Also check if the graphics card has a fan. If so, clean it too.
Put everything back and it should work perfectly.
If you need further assistance, or have further questions, just leave a comment. Thank you for using FixYa. Cheers

Start-up problem with emachine 366i


Replace the power supply - but before that - remove every card in the machine and remove the ram too - clean the end of the ram with a pencil eraser - reinstall.
Clean the rest of the cards with a pencil eraser and reinstall.
Blow all the dust from the machine with a can of AIR - get the power supply and fans real good - put it back together and if it works - fine - if not - replace the power supply.

Dell XPS 200 Computer shuts off leaving blinking amber light


3 most common solutions to your problem are:
  1. Bad power supply; once it heats up will quit without warning
  2. Bad heatsink/fan; processor heats up and will lock up your Pc
  3. Bad motherboard
Try opening the machine and give the inside a thorough cleaning, paying special attention to the heatsink and fan. Once clean and you've ensured the fan is operating, put it back together and see if your problem is fixed. If not, a new power supply will likely fix your problem. Best of luck.

Make sure the cpu is seated properly. It should only go in one way. Also make sure you have applied a good thermal paste between the cpu & heatsink. Check and reseat RAM. Then try rebooting. Hope this helps.

it is possible you "Fried" the processor or something else. all it takes is a small static charge to kill those delicate circuits. dont wanna be all doom and gloom. i would strongly suggest you take this to a pro that can test all the hardware and find out. hopefully it's just a problem with your power supply. please let me know

Power supply fan is makeing a lot of noise


1) Unplug the power cord and give the fan a good cleaning
with a soft paint brush and a vacuum cleaner.

i.e. Let the fans spin up by the vacuum and than bring
the brush against it.

2) If this fails, it's time to replace the fan:

a) Upgrade or replace the power supply enclosure with more
power/higher quality.

This is usually a good investment anyway.

b) Replace the fan only as described below:


Unplug the power cord

Open up the computer (remove sides)

Unplug all the power supply harnesses from
the mother board, drives and chassis fans.

Unscrew and remove the complete power supply
enclosure at back of computer (ie top of the tower)

Vacuum it out as much as possible.

Disassemble the power supply enclosure by removing
more screws and removing the metal cover.

Unplug the fan from the circuit board, remove it
and take it to a computer store/ builder.

buy another fan just like it

reverse the process to put your computer back together.

1) A new power supply should cost $65 to $120
depending on power and quality. The bigger the better.

But make sure it fits mechanically into the existing chassis
and that the AT generation matches ***********-board.

2) A new fan should cost $15 to $25. Makes sure it runs on
the same voltage, and that it is physically compatible.

Ecofan only turns slowly


These fans can be rebuilt! Like many others, our fan died after being placed in the center of the stove top. I took the two halves of the fan body apart, and scraped the heat sink compound off either side of the power plate. I then applied CPU heat sink compound that can be found at any computer or electronics store liberally to either side, and put it back together. The fan spins like new, spread the word!
