Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop

My Dell Dimension 8200 cooling fan started running at high speed constantly yesterday. This pc is 8 years old. Could the mother board be the problem. Any suggestions? I runs well other than the fan.

My Dell cooling fan now runs at a high speed and the computer will not turn on. I robbed one from an older Dell, and got a message that the (new-old) fan wasn't working, (The plug was smaller then mine)but...


The cooling fan racing is a symptom of a No Post state in the Motherboard. The Power LED and diagnostic LED indications would be helpful in resolving your issue. If the power LED is flashing Amber, the power supply is suspect, solid Amber points to the motherboard or something connected to it. The DIAG LEDs 1234 on the front or ABCD on the back give more specific information.

Initial Impression, is motherboard failure, post the DIAG and Power LED indications for more exact diagnosis

The clinking sound could well be your drive heads snapping back into parking location if your power supply is going out. Since the 8200 comes with a pretty weak power supply those tend to go out shortly after you've upgraded to a better graphics card or added another drive to the system. I've replaced mine a few times and now have a 450 watt supply in it which seems to be able to handle a powered video card and the 2nd HD, 2nd dvd without running out of juice.
Another good thing for these old dimensions is the addition of a case /slot fan to help with cooling a bit more. (see included picture)
I've had dealings with a number of dimensions from this era not cooling enough and the slot fans really helped stability.5a04930.gif
Let me know if any of this helps your situation.

Yellow light on dell dimension 2400 and it won't work


HI, this is signaling an issue that is concerning the power unit(power supply). this can also be an issue with the mother board as well. you can confirm the actual issue by, inspecting the cooling fan that is on the power unit. if the power unit fan is not running when you push the power button to power up the PC, replace the power supply. if the fan is running, replace the mother board.

Dell Dimension 8200 Processor


hi, i also hav a dimensions 8200 which i recently uprgaded to a 2.8gh, but i discovered there were two versions of this system one which supports a 400FSB and the other 533FSB, these can determine the speed of ur cpu. Like you, I havent been able to unlock my clock speeds in the bios but i think you should be able to get more from ur new cpu by updating ur bios version to A09. check the dell site for more info on how to do this.

CPU cooling fan


Hi...you can press the F2 key to enter setup...and scroll down until the fan is highlited...hit enter and then F10 to save and exit.This tells the computer its OK.
you should have plugged the fan in the same pin port the old fan was in. Usually only 1,.
If the new fan is not from dell..it may be faster and noiser..or it may be faulty..if you bought it locally you may try to return it.
The purpose of the fan of course is to remove the hot air from the CPU to keep it from overheating. If this fan does it it is most likely ok.
Hope this helps..
