Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop
I have a Dell Dimension 8200. Recently the CPU cooling fan broke down.
I replaced it with a 90 MM fan with three pins, same voltage.
When I turn the computer on I get a message sayng "previous fan failure. Press F1 to continue or press F2 to go to set up page"
Anyway the fan starts but it seems to run at a high speed and makes noise.
Dell does not offer a replacement for fans or any other solutions.
What can I do?
I very much appreciate any help.
Hi...you can press the F2 key to enter setup...and scroll down until the fan is highlited...hit enter and then F10 to save and exit.This tells the computer its OK.
you should have plugged the fan in the same pin port the old fan was in. Usually only 1,.
If the new fan is not from dell..it may be faster and noiser..or it may be faulty..if you bought it locally you may try to return it.
The purpose of the fan of course is to remove the hot air from the CPU to keep it from overheating. If this fan does it it is most likely ok.
Hope this helps..
