Having problems with your Dell Dimension 9200 PC Desktop ?

My Dell Dimension 9200 makes an accellerating noise when rebooting and the screen stays dark. I kill the power to stop it. I suspect that it is too hot and a fan is running full blast. This first started when it was over 90 degrees in this room but has been going on since temps are normal again. Once it occurs I have to wait a while before starting up if I want to get the starting screen rather than the noise I described above. I have added, long before this problem appeared, two extra HDs.

Answers :

The answer you are looking for is simple,you need to remove the heatsink and apply thermal grease to the top of the processor .The noise the fan makes is normal when it senses high temp,so if this still happens after applying the grease you might want to purchase a new heat sink.
\015\012Good luck
Nice comp...
\015\012I had the same problem with my 9000...sounds like a plane taking off...lol
\015\012if its been a while, and im sure it has.. unplug tower and open the case...im sure there is alot of dust in there...its disgusting how much dust a comp gets inside...either use compressed air from a compressor or you can use a couple of cans of keyboard cleaner to get the dust out...do this outside your home as there will be alot of dust flying around....blow everything possible, from heat sink on CPU to the power supply and your video card, cooling fan and vents and anywhere else you see dust...hopefully that will keep you cool enough...
\015\012if not you will have to put a new fan on your CPU

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
