Question about Dell (Fan Only) M/N AFC0912DE, DC12V, 2.50A, D/N P2780 P2780
Computer fan races and computer won't start. Disconnect fan computer will start then you can plug fan back in and everything works OK.
The fan is drawing too much current from the motherboard causing the power supply to go into protection mode. Try replacing the fan with a new one and see this this does not fix the start up problem. You should check out your power supply and see if it really delivers enough power to power all the devices in your computer. The power supply could have weaken due to overheating and aging. Try checking the voltages with a software device like speedfan or hardware monitor and see if the voltages are intermittant or out of specs. These programs can be downloaded free from their websites. Just google them to find the websites. If they are you should replace the power supply. Hope this helps you with your problem.
