Re: I think my cooling fans are out

These fans often have variable speeds based on demand, so a change in speed or even stopping may not mean anything.
Look for dust/dirt around the fan vent.
Are there any signs of overheating?

Some cpu cooling fan especially on laptop are basically have sensor. There is a certain temperature in order to make the cooling fan activate, when if it's cool then the cooling fan turn off automatically. Same with the air condition thermostat. Good day.....

Other way is to buy a usb cooling pad that fit the size of your laptop. If keeps cool your laptop though and i tried that already and it's effective to cool down the temperature.

I am using a Dell Dimension C521 Desktop and the other day I noticed the fan started constantly entering a cycle where it would kick into high speed and then slow down again every 2 minutes. After trying...

The fans change speed depending on the temperature the sensors detect.
Give your machine a thourough cleaning.
The CPU sensor is usually located under the CPU if it's loaded with dust it may think it's hotter then need be and kicks the fan up.

Fan races slows down races again

the fan is supposed to speed up when the processor gets too hot, then slow down after it has cooled a bit. if it is running more than normal, maybe you should take the cover off the pc and clean the dust out of the cpu heatsink.

My laptop computer shut down when run for 5 minutes or so. Do you think is the cooling fan?

It could very well be.

Does it feel hot?

Does it last longer when you boot it up for the first time?

Fan starts runnung fast and everything is frozen

Overheating. Try using canned air and blowing out vents. If you are comfortable with it, take the laptop apart and clean it out. If not, contact a local computer shop that can do it for you. If cleaning doesn't do it, the CPU heatsink will need reseated or the CPU will need replaced.
