Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
It gives an error message: "Previous Fan Failure". I changed the settings in bios to : do not report" on keyborad but the fan still did not start though the error message is not coming anymore. Compuer shutts off automatically in 15 min. It seems the problem is with motherboard poer to fan.Anyone can suggest a solution to this problem. Thank You
Dell uses a proprietary fan on it's cpu's. This is more than likely your problem. The motherboard does not recognize the new fan and the motherboard is not powering it on. Without replacing the motherboard you are stuck using dell replacement parts for this model. The motherboard & psu are also proprietary in this model so it would take a whole lot of modification to use anything but Dell replacement parts. Your pc is shutting down due to overheating. Sorry. Hope this helps.
