How do I remove and replace a CPU cooling fan on my Dell Dimension 2400


Make sure u can open the casing well to expose the interior parts without causing any damage. Then by close look at the processor area , that is where the heat sink is located. Normally the dell dimension 2400 has a green channel shaped structure that acts as a passage for the air that enters in and out for cooling the heat sink. It has a locking parts that slides into the casing back by slight pressing to the back of the casing just behind the processor area, be so observant to notice the locking parts. then the fan is just fixed behind that green " channel like" and its fixed on the rear side of the casing, 25275582-o0cuhlgwrl13okm3u3q5444d-5-0.jpg

My laptop makes a high pitched noise


The high pitched noise you hear is most likely caused by the CPU cooling fan on your laptop. If you suspect that this high pitched sound is caused by the fan going out, you can spray your laptop with compressed air to get the dust off of the fan.
This solution will make your laptop work at a cooler temperature, and reduce the noise.

If the problem persists, seek a certified laptop repair specialist.

Loud motherboard fan on Dell Dimension 9100


depends on the noise. Rattling: Ensure that all cables are out of the way and not touching the blades. Loud screaching noise: replace the fan immediately. now when you say mother board fan is it inbuilt?

Cooling fan Dell Dimension 3000


That is the correct way. It is a newer design that keeps the hot air from the CPU heatsink out of the case. 35C is a good temp.

High pitch noise coming from laptop


Likely it is the system cooling fan or processor cooling fan so check to see if you would like to put it back under a manufacturer warranty if possible or whether you have the skill to review, follow, and carefully open up and inspect and clean and reassemble your notebook PC. What price is it worth to you to fix this problem - the downtown computer retailer that sells CDs and PCs and appliances will charge you to fix it. Again, most likely it is a simple small fan inside the PC. It could just have lint, dust, fuzz in it and after a clean out could work quietly again. The CPU cooling fins or cooling fan blades after cleaning will allow the CPU or system to operate more coolly, and then the fan RPM could drop a bit and the notebook PC whining sound may decrease. Oh, finally, putting the notebook PC on a grate or grill or a notebook cooling ventilation platform could alleviate the problem if it is just lint or dust.

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..

Fan Noise on Dell Dimension 8100


All computer fans have a general design.  The name in front of "fan" really refers to the designation.  You'll see case fan, processor fan, CPU fan, cooling fan, etc.  In the case of CPU/Processor fan, some are sold with heatsinks (the metal block sitting on top of your CPU).

The first thing you want to do is make sure the fan is clean.  Chances are dust buildup is causing the excess noise.

If that's not the case and you're looking to replace the fan, then you first need to find out the size of the fan. General sizes(diameter X width in mm) are listed on this page:

http://www.svc.com/case-fans.html

Generally, you're looking for something that will match the size of what you're replacing & push enough air at a reasonable noise level to cool the heatsink/CPU.  You want to stay in the area of 30dBA max for noise.  You also want to see if it has a 3-pin or 4-pin connection.

For example, if you have an 80mm fan, I would suggest something like this:

http://www.svc.com/saf-b82-19.html

It's pretty quiet with good airflow.  Also, it has a 3-pin connection, but includes an adapter for a 4-pin connection.
