Honestly, take the laptop to a pc repair shop. Any other laptop, except an IBM and I'd say do it yourself, but these 7000 series notebooks are another breed of animal. The worst part is that there are no repair manuals for them.

CPU OVER HEAT


It is likely that a cooling fan is not working. Remove the side panel and start the computer (take care not to touch any parts inside) see if the CPU or other fans are operational. Replace the ones that are not working (don't try to fix them they are sealed and are quite cheap to replace) Good luck

Overheating


You will probably need to replace the CPU fan down the road and remove the old thermal grease between the heatsink and the processor ic for new compound, will make all the difference.

I can hear a sound


If this is a sound coming from within the laptop, I suggest it be taken apart by a computer technician and either the CPU cooler be replaced or it needs to be cleaned of dust. Laptop noise from inside is not a good thing, it should be relatively quite. However some-times you will hear the CPU fan speed up to cool the processor and then quite down again.

Can I replace the CPU fan on my Gateway 2625


Yes you can as long as you know how to take it apart. There are no user access compartments like the RAMs, to remove it without taking the whole thing apart.

Motherboard power


hey, without seeing it its quite hard, if the cpu fan aint running you have either not connected the cpu fan cable up, or connected it to the wrong place,
are you sure you fitted the cpu the correct way round when you removed it,
and depending on the processor in the computer make sure you aint damaged any of the pins etc on the cpu.

if you can supply some pictures or something can probably help you better

CPU fan runs at high speed and won't boot


Change the setting in the BIOS menu. reboot your computer.. when you see the dell logo.. press F1 (or F2 if F1 doesn't work) button until you see the BIOS screen. Check for fan options and change it

My Emachine Fan Way to Loud


... this may be worth a try; it worked for my noisy emachine fan.
First open the box and vacuum out any dust on the fan. I also opened my power supply and did the same; there was quite a bit of dust, so you can imagine the heat never got the chance to be removed. Also, on my machine, underneath the CPU fan, there's a metal baffle; get the dust out of this as well ... same problem re. removing the heat. Last... and I'm not sure this matters or is true, but, for my fan, the power supply plug on the motherboard seemed to accept the plug oriented 180 degrees different from the way it was plugged in from the factory ... could this change the direction the fan blows? It certainly explains the bizarre build-up of dust in my CPU baffle. Once I did this, the fan goes up to 100 percent for about 3 seconds on boot, then it has never 'noised-up' like it used to! ... it's totally quiet now and the computer works great...
good luck

Loud fan


Check that the fan is not hitting any wires in side the case.

If not you may have disoriented the fins while cleaning them. Make sure the fins are not hitting the fan body.

If the fan wasn't installed property the CPU temprature should rise fast and your computer might automatically shut down to prevent damage to the CPU. If that is the case, try reinstalling it making sure it's attached well to the CPU. And remember to add some thermal compound to help the heatsink transfer heat.

If none have solved your problem you can buy a new fan for your CPU at any computer store. Make sure it's compatable with your CPU socket type.

I have lately purchased this fan for my quad core CPU and it's 100% silent. You can run it without a fan also. It's a really huge heatsink. I recommend it.
