Re: CPU Fan

Depending on the size of the fan you can probably remove it and take it to your local computer store and have them get you a better one of the same size.

Acre z5700 turns off

A really loud fan can be one of two things - neither is very good to have for very long. Most newer motherboards support multi-speed fan operation based on CPU temperature. This keeps fan noise at a minimum because the fan only has to run fast (and loud) if the CPU exceeds a specific threshold temperature. The loud noise could also be from a fan that is starting to fail and is binding, thus running slower than normal. Either of these conditions is indicative of a problem that kills PCs - heat. Open the case and carefully examine the heat sink fins and the fan on the CPU. If they are caked with dust (especially the fins), then the CPU will likely overheat and shut down. Get some canned air designed for cleaning electronic components and blow the dust from the fins and the fan. Restart your system a see if the fan runs slower and quieter now, Machines that are in dusty environments, around smokers, or placed on the floor are especially prone to dirt buildup. Periodic cleaning with the canned air is the way to keep your PC happy and healthy.

Check your BIOS Settings

CPU Configuration
CPU Internal Thermal Control [Auto]
Hyper Threading Function [Enabled]
Intel(R) SpeedStep(tm) Tech [Auto]

Power>Hardware Monitor
CPU Q-Fan Control [Enable]
CPU Fan Ratio [Auto]
CPU Target Temperature [60degC] (lowest setting available)

or you can replace it with Cooler Master XDream

My computer runs constantly its loud and annoying

I assume you mean the cooling fan on the CPU, this model uses a smart fan technology, it is meant to spin up faster to provide cooling. If is is doing tis constantly, it means the CPU is not getting adequate cooling (overheating), to check this, remove the side panel, clean all the dust and debris build up from the cooling fan and see if that helps

My laptop makes a very strange noise all the time when I turn it on it is a extremely annoying occurrence. I have had this problem for a long time it doesn't affect the way it runs it just is annoying.

Possibly the CPU cooling fan. I would strongly reccomend you get this checked soon, a CPU cooling fan is relatively inexpensive to replace compared to over-heated laptop components!

Computer frequently shuts down unexpectedly/ fans very noisy

You might have a cooling problem due to a fan malfunction. It is not clear whether it's the power supply fan or the CPU fan; in the latter case you might also have a thermal coupling problem. The symptoms you describe certainly seem to point to such.

My advice would be to replace the fan (or the whole power supply; you might also want to purchase a "Silent Power" unit for quieter computing). If it's the CPU fan and you are comfortable with, or know anyone comfortable with a bit of PC servicing, you might want to also unmount the heat sink from the CPU and replace the thermal paste between CPU and heatsink. Clean the heat dissipator (the black metal grille over the heatsink) with hot water and a bit of soap and dry thoroughly, or wipe it energically with a dust brush, before mounting the new fan on it.

Fan is loud

well if its not attached to the motherboard in any place, for example the heat sync, or the cpu, then you can remove the fan, any other place, you shouldnt replace it because the mother board sets the fan at a certain rpm, and which would sound loud with any fan. I know this because i replaced the fan on my sony computer, and on a generic motherboard, and it was quiet, but when i put it on my sony computer, it was loud, so if you want to replace your fan, i suggest liquid cooling, it is completely quiet, and keeps your cpu much cooler than a fan. Best of luck.

My DC5000 SFF turns on okay then switches off randomly Help!!

Which fan are you referring to? As far as I know the fan in the power supply runs at the same speed at all times. So if that is the fan you are hearing it may indicate that the power supply is failing. The power supply may be over heating and shutting down. I would try a different power supply if you can get your hands on one.

Loud fan

Check that the fan is not hitting any wires in side the case.

If not you may have disoriented the fins while cleaning them. Make sure the fins are not hitting the fan body.

If the fan wasn't installed property the CPU temprature should rise fast and your computer might automatically shut down to prevent damage to the CPU. If that is the case, try reinstalling it making sure it's attached well to the CPU. And remember to add some thermal compound to help the heatsink transfer heat.

If none have solved your problem you can buy a new fan for your CPU at any computer store. Make sure it's compatable with your CPU socket type.

I have lately purchased this fan for my quad core CPU and it's 100% silent. You can run it without a fan also. It's a really huge heatsink. I recommend it.

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.
