Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop
How do I replace the fan on top of the processor? The fan is so loud I cannot hear the sound coming out of my speakers.
Ravege is correct, try to clean it first with some canned air.
If that doesnt work then follow the steps mentioned, however use caution.. Some companies actually glue the fans down to the proccessor, ive come across it more than once. If the fan does not come off easily then do not yank and tug on it to hard, you may cause alot of damage to you cpu.

I suffered with the very loud xps 200 for over two years. I then tried to remove the front vent to allow more air access to the front fan. When i did this i broke the little plastic stick that allows the power button to turn the computer on. So after that, I had to remove the side panel and stick a pointy object inside to turn it on.
I decided to buy a new case which i found someone was selling on eBay. Turned out it was the case for the 5100c which is the same exact model of case but had something different which when i took the insides of the xps and transferred it to this case. THE NOISE WAS GONE! It's now a very, very quiet machine. I then was able to switch the nameplate and so it still says it is what it is. An XPS and not a 5100c!

Welcome to fixya
if you have a desktop then this is easy
remove the cover of your destop (Make sure unplged )
on the top of the fan should be 4 screws unscrew them and remove plug there you go then go buy an ew one and replace
HOW EVER i would just go buy some compressed air and try to blow the fan out first and clean it up so no dust or anything is in it then while your in there blow some of the air into the power supply to get the dust and stuff out of there
And blow ot the entire computer while your there this should all be done atleast 1time a month .......
hope this helps you out have a good day :)
