Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the side-panel.
Buy a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job" to remove dust from "everywhere", including the fan(s).

If you still get noise, then it's time to replace the fan.
Take the computer to any computer-store, so that they can sell you a new fan that matches the current fan.

Dell dimension 5150 the fan is really noisy and sounds like its going full blast all the time.we can hardly hear the telly over it.


Your fan is most likely in need of a cleaning, or straight out replacement. You can remove the retaining screws and pull the fan out as a complete unit and blow it out with a can of compressed air. If the noise is a high squealing sound, then I would purchase a replacement fan and install it. Fans can be purchased from Ebay, just remember to check and make sure that you are ordering the correct fan (case or heatsink) before you commit to buy.

My Dell Dimension 5150 fails to turn on when i press the main power button. It makes a jarring noise about five times and then nothing, no connection with the monitor, no activity. Any ideas?


My first inclination would be to check the power supply. There is a fan within it. If it is not turning and pushing out air, the supply will immediately fail when it gets hot. Upon starting PC, you should hear that fan and feel air coming from the vent holes. I would also check to see that any case fans inside are clear of cables. Hard drives and other media drives could also make the sound, but they shouldn't prevent PC from starting.

Noise from unknown source


Grrrrrrr - Could be CD running, Could be Fan on the CPU, which if not fixed will kill you main chip, could be power supply fan, check in the back and see if fan is turning consistanly ( I think that is how you spell that) If you know how to remove covers, take side off and look at fan on the CPU or other fans and when you hear the Grrrrrrr se if you can tell where it is comong fro, also some hard drives will make a sound as they get older.. Good luck....

Fan/ engine whining sound


If the fan is only making wind noise it is ok. If it is making matalic noise replace fan. It would be a good idea to clean (blow)out the dust and dirt for the inside of the computer at this time.

Loud Dell desktop


Any fan that is making noise you would need to replace. There is also never a need to use alcohol to clean a fan. Some computer air or a light wipe down will do just fine.
If you have any other questions let me know.
Thanks,
Lee
