Having problems with your Dell Dimension™ 4600C PC Desktop ?

Blower/fan runs fast any time, shuts off, restarts for long time run.

Answers :

What kind of system is this? There is a BIOS setting for performance. If you have that set to "performance" then the system will be louder since the fans will run faster all the time to keep the system as cool as possible for performance.
\015\012I would lso try using compressed air to dust all vents and fans in the system. If dust is building up, that will act like an insulator and trap heat in the system. When heat builds in the system, the fans will run faster to try to cool the system down.

Not sure it's the motherboard, but it shuts itself down. Bios reports that the CHS fan is not running. Don't know which one that is? Have cleaned the pc out good and reseated the processor with fresh thermal grease. Temp starts out @ 20 degrees C and rises fast within a few minutes of running time. Afraid to leave it on too long at a time if it is a heat issue. Can you help me? Today it told me that the temp was lower than normal but it was up to 27 degrees C at the time...???

The CHS fan is the chasis fan, this fan should be seated on the case somwhere, the best way to check this is to take the side panel of the pc and power it up to see if any fans are not working, if you find a fan that is not working turn back off and ... eMachines W3507 PC Desktop
