Question about Dell (6F858) Cooling Fan
This indicates that the Processor is getting too hot. When the Processor gets hot the computer is programed to increase fan speed to cool itself down. To solve this problem you will want to install a chassis fan in your computer's chassis, either bringing freash air into system (intake) or as an exhaust blowing air out of your computer system. Purchase them at your local computer store they are inexpensive and are a great asset to your computer system.
Another option that will help the most is to clean the processor fan of dust. Dust accumulates over the heatsink and prevents the cool air from cooling your processor. Remove the dust with a vaccum cleaner and a paint brush. Do it in a very gental manner as you don't want to damage the fan blades. In some cases it is possible to remove the fan and get at the dust that way.
