Noisy fan old older computer

I have a 5 year old Dell Dimension 2300 that has a very noisy fan. I am worried that it is not cooling the computer properly. I read about using WD40 on it, would that really help on an older part? I am nervous to try and I was told by Dell that they no longer carry the fan as a replacement. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

CPU Fan sounds like a jet and computer won't start


It sounds more like the hard drive, the fan has nothing to do with your computer booting up. If the hard drive is starting to go bad it will not boot up, that's what it sounds like your computer is doing. I recommend checking out the hard drive and replacing it.

Dell Dimension 8250 ,FAN TOO FAST & Noisy but CPU COOL...


The fan settings can be found in the BIOS. On a Dell machine, when you turn the computer on repeatedly hit F2 until you are brought to the BIOS. Search through there until you find something named Acoustics, change the option to run at a lower level. Remember to save the changes before you exit.

How to remove the cpu fan cover


on my 2600, the cover just lifts off the heatsink, and the fan is attached with stretchy rubber things that allow you to just pull it off. What are you trying to do?

Noisy fan


We have a Dell Dimension 4700C too. We had it on a 3-year warranty and the only problem with it was that from that to time it would become abnormally noisy, too noisy in fact. Dell sent a repair guy twice, and they changed the heatsink/fan assembly unit both times, and the third time we did it ourselves (it's not that hard to do), but here's the thing, we noticed how DUSTY it was when it came out, we wondered how it even worked with all that dust. So, now our warranty has expired, and guess what, the computer started making that terrible racket again, so this time, we opened it, armed with the vacuum cleaner and a can of compressed air, gave the whole inside of the computer a good once over, removed the heatsink/fan assembly and cleaned it thorougly (you can't do this unless it is out), and it worked like a charm, can't even tell the computer is running. Hope this helps.
