Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop
I have a Dell Dimension 4700 and I cannot get it to run quietly like I believe it used to when I bought it new. I switched out the PS and theres no improvement. The power supply has been putting out very warm air. The CPU/case fan easily gets kicked into high gear mode for any processing. That's when the noise starts. I have cleaned out the case very well and also cleaned out the power supply case. Maybe the CPU is getting too warm or maybe it got heat damage and doesn't run efficiently anymore, reason being, the CPU fan once failed to spin after I cleaned it with alcohol and the computer automatically shut down to prevent damage.
What could you suggest to fix this high gear fan noise.
Any fan that is making noise you would need to replace. There is also never a need to use alcohol to clean a fan. Some computer air or a light wipe down will do just fine.
If you have any other questions let me know.
