Whining fan dell E520 computer


Replace the fan as soon as possible. If the noise suddenly stops, DON'T assume the problem corrected itself. More likely, the fan completely froze and stopped spinning entirely and you're at risk of overheating something inside. Generally, there are usually 3 fans in a desktop computer (cpu/heatsink, case, and power supply) and sometimes a 4th fan if the computer has a separate graphics card. Laptops usually only have one fan.

It could be a broken fan, the fan sits on top of the CPU heatsink inside your computer, is there warm air blowing from the vents? if not you need to replace the fan or contact the dell service center.

Dell 370 fan runs loud and won't start


If the fan is failing the most times the computer will not start because it will overheat. There are two fans inside the system, one inside the Power Supply and one that sits on the motherboard.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the case, Remove the cover and with a can of compressed air blow out the dust inside the computer. Clean the dust away from the Fans, Vents, CPU and Heat Sink are that sits under the Fan on the motherboard.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530. Was getting 2 quick beeps on start up and loud fan noise. I replaced the cpu fan but the one I bought did not have the right plug for the motherboard connection. I had to modify...


This model (as well as many other Dell desktops) has a DUAL SPEED CPU fan. If the motherboard detects that the CPU temp is running hot it will increase the speed of the CPU fan to lower the temp of the CPU. You should do a Google search for the correct CPU fan and purchase it and install it back into your computer.

Dell optiplex GX280 PC when power on system no noise with fan after one hour making loud noise . I changed the CPU fan , also same noise, and applied heat sink paste to CPU and heat sink same noise....


There probably is another fan, located inside the power-supply, that is making all the noise.

Borrow a stethoscope from a nurse or doctor, and listen to the noise, to pinpoint "where" on the computer that is the origin of the noise.
