Dell Dimension 8250 ,FAN TOO FAST & Noisy but CPU COOL...


The fan settings can be found in the BIOS. On a Dell machine, when you turn the computer on repeatedly hit F2 until you are brought to the BIOS. Search through there until you find something named Acoustics, change the option to run at a lower level. Remember to save the changes before you exit.

Dell Dimension 8250 PC running Windows XP SP2 has CPU always at 100%


I guess it could be a virus, avast is not the best antivirus in my opinion, try to get a norton antivirus or NOD32 update it and run the scan, it ocuurs when a replicating virus copies files to all your HDD and is always busy...making system busy...and one more thing there could easily be a copy of the virus in your pen drive as well...
