Re: previous fan not working
If you open up you case you could of unplugged or it is not getting a good connection. But if you did not then that is a in in your bios. Dell give you some access to the bios. Go in there and see the if the is on or if the speed of the fan is listed

This indicates that your computer is configured to boot on the floppy drive. 1. At the start of the computer Press F2 2. Go to the Boot Device Configuration. 3. Enable Hard Disk Boot Priority. 4. Set the First Boot Priority to Hard Disk 5. Save and Exit.

you need to go to cmos or bios setup, set all the date and time and proper boot setting there save and exit, it is a cmos or bios failure that causes these problems try replacing the cmos battery if the message still continues
Some very old Sharp PCs require a Setup Diagnostics Disk to access BIOS.
Shuttle - Glamor G-Series, D'vo, Prima P2-Series, Workstation, X Mini XPC, Surveillance
Press F2 or Del on startup.
Sony - VAIO, PCG-Series, VGN-Series
Press F1, F2 or F3 after turning on the computer.
Toshiba - Portégé, Satellite, Tecra
Press F1 or Esc after powering on to access BIOS.
The following companies are either closed for business or no longer manufacture or support mainstream computers systems so verifying the following BIOS access information is nearly impossible. I have included what I could dig up for anyone who might be interested: ARI / ALR / AST (Advantage) - Press the Ctrl+Alt+Esc or Ctrl+Alt+Del keys. Cybermax - Press the Esc key. Tandon - Press the Ctrl+Shift+Esc keys.
This machine is one of the first "legacy free" models which means there are
no BIOS options to change.
All settings and resources must be assigned by the OS.
For details, please check the "legacy free" FAQ on MS Knowledge base. If you are trying to access the BIOS to change boot order so that you can boot from a CD, hold down the 'c' key during POST/boot. This will case your laptop to boot from CD-ROM.
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.. Squipps
