My CPU fan for my Dell Dimension 2350 has stopped turning!

The Cpu fan for my Dell Dimension 2350 has stopped spinning. Now every time I try to turn the PC on, it turns off after about 5 mins.

Does the fan simply need cleaning?

How do I go about replacing the fan??

Hello,

If your fan is not turning at all then it is probably dead, the bearings are likely clogged with dust and such. The PC is shutting off because of heat buildup on the processor chip. You need to do an Ebay search for your model and order a fan right away. Continued running of your sysem without a fan will kill the processor and motherboard. You should be able to get a replacement fan for your computer for less than $15 including shipping. Your local computer store may have one to fit your system but they may charge more for it. To change the fan is very easy, the left side of the case will come off your system, right under the power supply is the processor and heatsink and the fan. Disconnect the old fan and reconnect the new unit.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution

It states cpu fan not on


Hope you can open the CPU and check the CPU fan. Try unplugging the fan power cable on motherboard and inseting again.
If it doesnt solve it, take out the fan (attached to the top of heat sink. Dont take out heat sink) and try with a battery of some 6 volt. Red +ve Black -ve. If it doesnt run, you need to replace that fan.

Ensure that both the case fan and CPU fan are dust free and spinning. I think it could be overheating and then shutting itself off to prevent damage

Motherboard powers up for 2 seconds then down on dell dimension 2350 fans start then immediately go down...pulled power supply and replaced but still same problem


if you have the knowhow, do the following

remove your CPU fan which comes with a heatsink,

then apply some heat sink compound paste on your heatsink where the heatsink makes contact with your CPU.
then connect your heatsink and fan, lock them into position and turn on your PC.

helpful? if not give me a reply to give you other ideas.

CPU fan not detected.....


The cpu fan has a three wire connector that connects to the mother board. Usually located to the right & up from the cpu. If yours is connected currently the wires may be miss aligned. From left to right the pins are: first pin ground/Black; middle pin 12v./Red & last pin rotation/Blue. There may be a bios update that address this issue. Dell does not give up information easly.
