You have to buy a new power supply component if it's not working. If you do get the power supply and your fan is not working, DO NOT USE YOUR COMPUTER UNTIL YOU HAVE AN APPROPRIATE FAN WORKING.

Fan stopped working


Power supplies are not meant to be fixed. If you have electronics repair experience, crack it open and replace the fan with a new pc cooling fan of the same size and power.

Fan on VGC-LA1


The PC has two faand is It depends upon which fan is faulty,
The CPU fan is easily replaced, but the fan in the switch mode power supply is a lot more difficult and I recommend you get a PC service shop to fix this fan or replace the switch mode power supply.

Indicator power n lamp light red together


There is an internal fault condition which is stopping the unit from powering on.
It could be a blockage of the fan, a loose connector, a power supply partial failure, a temperature sensor has died etc.

If you plan to throw it away, rather than get it fixed, then have a look inside for any obvious fan blockages. First make sure the unit is unplugged and has been off for an hour or so.

I cannot start my eMachine ET181003r. Every time I try to start, just hear humming sound for one second and then stop. I am not sure it is the FAN problem or not.


What you are most likely hearing is either one of the fans within the computer case, or a Hard drive. The problem could be many things and would most likely need to be inspected in person. I am sorry I cannot be of more help in this situation. Good luck!

Need fan for Okia 350 ATX


its the bearings in the fan starting to pack up, best way is to stop the fan spinning when its on with a small pencil and this should re- align the bearings in the fan and stop the noise, you will need a new powersupply the fan is on the way out, just a temp. fix for you to stop the irritating noise

Won't boot....fans start, then stop right away


check if your power source is ok. it may be broken and this is why you hear the fans start and then stop right away. they are working about 3-4 seconds, aren't they?
remove and put back the jumper for clear cmos after you test your motherboard with a new ac source

The power light keeps flashing orange


I had my Optiplex GX520 at work shut down abruptly every time I turned it on it in the morning. This would always happen within the first 30 minutes. I would then get the flashing amber light. After starting the PC again, it would stay on all day (over 8 hours) without shutting down again. I found that the power supply was over-heating.

Two things need to be done. First, in order to get the amber light to stop flashing, un-plug the computer from the wall for 30 seconds then plug it back in. OR hold down the power button for 10 seconds or so. The light should stop flashing. Then press the power button again and the PC should start.

But why did it abruptly shut down in the first place? The power supply has a fan-speed-control circuit in it to keep it running slow and quiet when the power supply is cool. It gives the power supply lower voltage when the power supply is cold and higher voltage as the power supply gets warmer. This circuit either is not working correctly or the fan getting sticky over the years and needing more voltage to get it moving when it is cold. I found that the fan was not starting at all and causing the power supply to over-heat.


To keep the fan moving at full speed, I cut the wire to it and wired it to the +12v output directly. Not the fan goes at full speed all the time. And yes, it is nosier. But at work it doesn’t matter.

The best solution would be to just get another power supply from Dell if possible. Or buy a +12v, 70mm fan from Digi-Key and replace the original.

Most likely a power supply problem. Your power supply is probably going bad or not powerful enough for your system. Swap it out for a known working power supply with enough power for your system. Also make sure there is not excessive dust and dirt on the fans.

Soldered in new fuse, blew it right away...whats a good upgrade?


A new power supply will fix your problem, and when the fuse blows do not replace it. It blows to protect your computer. please replace with a new power supply.
