Dell Inspron 1000 processor fan stopped working. Is there an easy fix ???


The only easy fix would be to purchase a laptop tray that includes fans like those sold at OfficeMax and it would save you the trouble of having to open the laptop and maybe keep it cool enough to work for a while without it shutting down.

167 bios


To troubleshoot processor issues, follow these steps and test the processor after performing each one:

Notes:
  • If either the system board or processor have been replaced, reflash the BIOS to the latest level before proceeding.

  • Some computers allow the fan to stop spinning. This is not a malfunction. The fan should start spinning as the system heats up.
  1. Ensure the latest BIOS code is installed. This will correct any 167 POST errors for the Intel microcode update and "176 No Processor CPUID" post errors.

  2. Reseat the processor and the heat sink

    Note: Do not touch either the processor or system board contacting surfaces. These can be extremely fragile and bent pin damage due to touching is not covered under warranty.

  3. Verify the processor fan operation is not blocked by cables or other hardware.

  4. Verify that any replacement processor is the correct architecture for the system.

Sir, I have a Dell optiplex GX110. At the motherboard there is a long brown slot in which a board of 4 expansion slots has been pluged. The first problem was that I had removed the heat sink from the...


When you inserted a test probe into the slot and you saw a spark, then you have short circuit a component on the motherboard and have done a major damage to the motherboard.
You need a new motherboard, most desktop cases have standard mounting holes, you may be able to purchase a motherboard from other manufacturer to fit in the Dell.

One of my fans has started making noise, how much time do i have to replace it? Am I right in thinking that it making noise that it needs to be replaced?


fan noises are usually caused by worn out fans. but can be also caused by IDE/power cables hitting the fan blades. you will have to open up the computer to see where the noise comes from.

if it is a faulty fan, replace it sooner than later as it will get louder and louder. then stop making noise all together when the fan fails.

Turns itself off & gets hot -don't think fan is kicking on


Since you do not hear the fan anymore I would start by opening up the case and seeing if power is going to the fan and make sure any connectors for it have not come loose. If the connectors are still hooked up chances are the fan is shot and needs to be replaced.

If you are not familiar with working around electronics and parts under power I would highly suggest you have some one who is familiar with this do it.

Fan stopped


If the fan has stopped, then the processor will overheat. Most vendors have protection so that a non-working fan is detected and the unit will not power up with detecting its rotation. Seems like a repair shop job I'm afraid.
