Make sure u can open the casing well to expose the interior parts without causing any damage. Then by close look at the processor area , that is where the heat sink is located. Normally the dell dimension 2400 has a green channel shaped structure that acts as a passage for the air that enters in and out for cooling the heat sink. It has a locking parts that slides into the casing back by slight pressing to the back of the casing just behind the processor area, be so observant to notice the locking parts. then the fan is just fixed behind that green " channel like" and its fixed on the rear side of the casing, How do I remove and replace a CPU cooling fan on m - 25275582-o0cuhlgwrl13okm3u3q5444d-5-0.jpg

SOURCE: How do I replace a CPU cooling case fan? (Dell

This should be done by a computer expert. If you ground yourself or your system you could fry your hard drive with static. You have to make sure it is replaced with the same exact one or this too will cause problems. You can get some good prices on fans on e-bay just make sure it's not refurbished. Somethings you just can't substitute. Go new. If you ground it properly there's only four bolts typically holding it on. Take out the bolts/screws and unplug lead. If this is new to you, take it somewhere it's worth it not to loose all your info. Let me know if I can help.

When the CPU in the computer overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

How do you replace the cooling fan of the Dell dimension 2400 desktop computer?


To replace the cooling fan follow these steps:-


You will notice that replacing the fan is not specifically mentioned, but it should be fairly easy.


Open the case as noted in the instructions, follow the power wire from the fan to the motherboard, then unplug the connector from the motherboard, and remove the assembly.


Some of the earlier fan shrouds just lift up and out, but others have tabs to hold them in.


Regarding the fan, there might be two release levers accessible from inside the case, but the one by the PSU can be hard to reach.


It might easier to push the retaining tabs, in from outside, using a small screwdriver, pen or whatever.


The installation of the new fan, is just a matter of fixing the new one in place and connecting the cable.

Good luck, and do rate the solution if got help

How do you open the tower of a dimension 2400 tower


If you look at the CPU from the back. On one side usually the left you will see a screw where the side wraps around the back. Some brands will use two screws. Remove this screw and then you can slide the side panel back toward yourself. Then you can turn the CPU exposing the open side. While your in there (make sure the unit is not plugged in) take a can of compressed air and clean your cooling fans and vents. Keeping a computer cool is important to keeping good performance up to where it should be.
