How do I remove and replace a CPU cooling fan on my Dell Dimension 2400


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, 25275582-o0cuhlgwrl13okm3u3q5444d-5-0.jpg

Where is the hard drive in the dimension 2400 dell. I see the cd drives, the power supply, the cooling fan, the heatsink, the video card, the memories... so where is the hard drive?


You know the power button in the front? If you open the cover to see the insides, there is the HD that is kind of covered by a metal slot (has like holes...). Well, the HD is right next to the power button in the front, but inside.... Here is a picture. The wires are attached to the HD. yup.

DVD drive bay


yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.
