Having problems with your Dell Mini Fan. Dimension (W x H x D) in. 8.7 x 12.2 x 8.2 in. ?

Noisy fan I have a Dell Dimension DIM 4700C.  The fan has been terribly noisy since i bought the machine, but now it has become unbearably noisy.  What do i do? I called Dell sometime ago and the service man in Delhi told me to unscrew the case to the CPU but i couldn't do that as i was calling from other than where the CPU was at the moment. thx. David


Answers :

We have a Dell Dimension 4700C too. We had it on a 3-year warranty and the only problem with it was that from that to time it would become abnormally noisy, too noisy in fact. Dell sent a repair guy twice, and they changed the heatsink/fan assembly unit both times, and the third time we did it ourselves (it's not that hard to do), but here's the thing, we noticed how DUSTY it was when it came out, we wondered how it even worked with all that dust. So, now our warranty has expired, and guess what, the computer started making that terrible racket again, so this time, we opened it, armed with the vacuum cleaner and a can of compressed air, gave the whole inside of the computer a good once over, removed the heatsink/fan assembly and cleaned it thorougly (you can't do this unless it is out), and it worked like a charm, can't even tell the computer is running. Hope this helps.
Wife's Dell Dimension was noisy. Noticed the shelf it was on was leaning a bit. Moved computer to a perfectly level surface and now the Dell is very quiet. Check yours by placing a spirit level on top of the case. Check that it's level both front-to-back and also side-to-side.

The computer sounds like it's racing. It speeds up and slows down. It's not the normal sound, it's been doing this for about two weeks and I cleaned the dust out of the fans that I could get to.


If the PC is a few years old, the bearing on the fans might be failing, causing more noise. The speeding/slowing is because the temperature sensors on the motherboard, fan, or case are telling the fans what speed to go for more or less cooling. ... PC Desktops
