Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop
I have a dell dimension 8200 and the internal cpu exhaust fan died quite a while ago. I was using a desk fan and the computer chassis open to keep it cool. A few weeks ago I finally tracked down a replacement dell fan for the 8200. Well, this fan worked well from day one, but not after day 7 when all of a sudden it just gave up completely. Now I have two busted cpu exhaust fans. I have tested the fans by giving them 12v to the positive and negative terminals of the cords... The old fan does nothing, the latest fan does nothing. The new fan will occasionally twitch and move a tiny tiny bit, but is otherwise dead. What might this mean? Is the fan connector on the motherboard faulty and burning out my fans? Can anyone think of a good solution? Im pretty sure if I purchase another one of these fans, the same thing will happen...
