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,

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.

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.

    Tried downloading, and INSTALLING the WI-Fi driver? (Many download, but fail to realize it has to be INSTALLED also)
    Then suggest the Wi-FI module in the laptop is bad, or possibly has loose connections.




    Remember, ALL power removed before starting. Remove the AC adapter, (Charger), and Battery.
    FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

First check that cooling fan of dell laptop is working properly or something is wrong. If you get anything wrong, then first clean the fan & check again. If it is still not working so you need to replace your cooling fan with new one.

If your hard drive faces any issue, so you need to fix it before replacement of laptop cooling fan. You can also run complete disk scan program to check & fix the errors & bad sector. Also defragment your hard disk so that every necessary file can be easily access at booting time.

So these are very solution if your dell laptop is facing hang/freeze problem.

Feel free to get solution for your Dell Inspiron computer with Dell technician at

These fan are meant to run constantly at a low power and on high when using a lot of processing power (like playing a game or HD movie).
I would boot into Dell diagnostic and make sure the high and low settings of the fan aqre working properly it may be that the fan is on high all the time when it should be in low mode.
Dell Diag. Press F12 at boot Select Dell Diagnostics Go through the basic diagnostic ~5 minutes After basic diag the advanced diagnostic will start Go through the menu and select the Fan test

Go to google and type in "dell support" (without the quotes) in the search box. Look for drivers and downloads and click the link. Input your computer's model (inspiron n4010) and the operating system. You'll see all the drivers including the ones that pertain to flashing the bios. Download and install it.

Hello, My Dell inspiron Laptop is getting overheated. I think the fan is not switching ON. Laptop just switched off while working. Help!

Could you normally hear the fan but cannot hear the fan now? If so that is definitely a hardware issue and you will need to send it into Dell or take it in to a PC repair place.
Other than that, make sure you are setting your computer on a flat hard surface, like a desk obviously. If you were to for example set your laptop on the couch and use it, the couch makes the laptop heat up a lot faster.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a dell inspiron N-4010 14" laptop. I have played some .flv format songs in my VLC player yesterday iwth maximum Computer & VLC Application volume. After some time the speaker started...

Check your system with external speakers, if it gives same problem its mean that the audio drivers od the system gone corrupt, needs re-installation,
if the system gives the correct sound, means that the speakers gone damaged, need repair/replacement, you can do by your self if you are technical enough otherwise you need technical assistance from Dell Support
Good Luck
