Are you replacing the system fan, or the CPU heasink fan. The first is simple, the second, is less simple, but not too hard.

Unscrew the screws in the back of your case (most have 4-6) Depending on your case, you may only have to pull the screws on the left side (as you look at the PC). Remove the exterior case.

The system fan will be held in place on the back of your PC by 4 smaller screws. Unscrew em, and disconnect it from the power supply. Install the new fan in the opposite order, and call it a day!

If you're replacing the heatsink fan, you may have to get more detailed instructions on the exact fan/heatsink model. Some are screwed in, some are clipped, ect. Just remember: if you do pull the heatsink fan, DO NOT touch the chip, and before you put a new one back on, DO use thermal grease. Nothing more disappointing that replacing it twice because you forgot this step. Good luck.

Inspiron 1501 error code 3700:0118


Three reasons a laptop will overheat and shut down:

1. Dust - Dust inside, dust clogging the vents, dust around the cpu and heat sink. Blow out the dust with a can of compressed air.

2. A Fan not working. Take the laptop apart and replace the fan. Just put Dell Inspiron 1501 Fan in the seach box on ebay. You'll see plenty of them at:

http://www.ebay.com

3. Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Apply a fresh coat of thermal paste on the cpu and heat sink. Even if you just change the fan, apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste.

Also you can buy a Laptop Cooling Pad at Tiger Direct for under $15. It plugs into one of the usb ports and the laptop sits on it. It has fans to keep the unit cool.

Dell inspiron n 4010 hangs often


I suggest you open the laptop, and clean it out first. THEN go on with the diagnoses.

Dell Support > Inspiron n4010 Notebook PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insN4010/en/sm/index.htm

1) FIRST remove all power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components on a computer.

Relieve your body of Static.

You should use an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
This is an example of an ESD wrist strap,

This pictorial guide for disassembly of an Inspiron n5010, should help also.

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-dell-inspiron-n5010-inspiron-15r-laptop/comment-page-1/#comments

The screws, and cables, etc., are in a different place, but disassembly is still the same.

Use a can, or two, of compressed air for computers.
Also you may wish to use Q-tips, and a soft small brush.
(Makeup brush? )

DO NOT use a vacuum!!!!

A vacuum creates Static electricity.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How to replace bad cooling fan on dell inspiron 1521 laptop


Replacing the fan is easy, once you remove the drives, the panels from the bottom, etc. Remove the keyboard and unscrew the frame. then the laptop clicks apart. The fan can be removed replaced.

While you can replace the fan fairly easily, they are expensive if you have to buy one from DELL. You might be able to substitute one from another laptop however.

The problem on the Dell Inspiron though is not the fan, but the design. It does not dissipate heat well, cycling heat poorly throughout the casing and ultimately over the drive before exiting from a primary vent on the side which needs to be higher to get good air flow. The air gets so hot and dirty that it eventually clogs up the fan and over heats the drive.

As a matter of fact, even when the fan is running normally the drive often fails anyway right around the two year mark. My last two companies have bought these and you can almost set your watch by the drive failures.

The solution, is a $5 cooling tray like cooks use for cookies. The metal grill will lift the laptop about 1.5 inches off the surface your working on and allow air to move freely in and out of the vent on the side.

Power jack replacement Dell Inspiron 6400


When you press the power button, no lights, fans, beeps, anything?

Is the power jack moving around? If not, I would check the charger and cord to make sure power is getting through to the plug that goes into the jack.

Installation of fan


Not knowing if you have ever taken one apart, start by laying the screen all the way back(flat) and then remove strip with power button. you have to start on the right side where there is a small notch. then remove 4 screws for keyboard. DON'T DROP THEM INSIDE CASE! remove 1 screw for shield. Then 4 screws hold down heat sink/fan assy. remember to disconnect power lead for fan. Installation is reverse. Be sure to use thermal grease between cpu and heat sink assy.

My computer is overheating!


There is no such thing as "computer on the way out". Replace the fan, it is cheap part. Just don't turn it on anymore before fan gets replaced.
