  • Forum Thread: Dell Inspiron 520, running Debian Freezes Randomly

    I have a Dell Inspiron 520 with an AMD processor on which I am running Debian. Last night, it suddenly froze so I restarted it and it froze again before it even got to the point of asking which OS I wanted. It seems like it was overheated and it started up fine tonight. (I am using it now.) But the fans...
  • Forum Thread: Dell precision T3500 Temperature control/ fan speed settings?

    Hi, I decided to spice up the old T3500 we had here with an X5640 cpu in stead of the original 3504! It works, but under full load its getting rather hot. Using real temp i see temperature differences to tjmax decreasing to about 8°C corresponding to an increasing absolute temperature of 92°C...
  • Forum Thread: Fan problem.

    Hey guys. I own a Dell Xps 8700. As we all know, the dell xps 8700 comes with two fans to keep the computer cool. However, I encounter this weird problem with the back fan.

  • Forum Thread: Dell precision T7400 does not boot properly

    About 2 years ago, I started to detect some strange behavior with my Dell Precision T7400. When it booted, something like this message came up: "System alert! Thermal solution compromised. Please remove system cover and reboot". And then the fans freaked out sounding like a plain taking off...

  • Forum Reply: RE: Precision T7600 .. Slow

    I know this is an old thread, but I thought I'd post an answer because this seems a common problem. My Precision M4300, Windows 7 64-bit, 4gb memory, was pretty quick most of the time, but would periodically slow to a crawl. Using Task Manager didn't reveal anything out of the ordinary, except...
  • Forum Thread: Suddenly, T5400 fans are on full, constantly

    Until the other day, everything seemed normal. One day, I turned on the T5400 and the front fans just started speeding up during boot. Were at full (or what sounds like 100%) by the time Windows loaded and never came back down. No reported temperature is high. Right now, the highest temp for a core is...

  • Forum Thread: Alert! Card-Cage Fan Failure.

    I have a Precision Workstation 390 running Windows XP Pro SP3. I get this error message on start up, "Alert! Card-Cage Fan Failure, F1 to continue, F2 to run setup Utility." The card-cage fan does not spin, so I replaced it. The new fan does not work either and I still get the same error...
  • Forum Reply: Re: XPS 730 General Hardware Discussion thread

    In regards to the CPU cooling sitting at 0% i'm pretty sure mine was also at 0% from the factory. I think I have it set at 26% for normal operations and between 30_40% for gaming. For peace of mind I always run a temperature monitoring program to keep an eye on things some times 2. I'm not...

  • Forum Thread: Graphics card fan... On Springs?

    I was looking into why I had high fan RPMs during busy operations (photoshop, games etc). My computer actually shut itself off twice, probably because of over heating. I was told to look at the heat sink, maybe it came loose. The graphics card fan seems to be affixed to a swirly heat sink over the...
  • Forum Thread: Noisy XPS 720 H2C - can someone help troubleshoot?

    Hello, We purchased our XPS 720 around Jan. 2008 and it ran very quiet up until about 6 or 8 months ago. It was a gradual thing but it got noisier and noisier. The fans sound like they are running at top speed whenever we run a game or computer scan. If you minimize any game, they seem to slowly go...

  • Forum Reply: Re: INSPIRON 531 HEAT AND NOISE?

    The cooling in the Inspiron 531 is inadequate. I measured the temperature of the Athlon 64 x2 6000+ CPU (using PC Wizard and Speedfan). Core 0 reached 157F, Core 1 hovered around 154F. So, I added four fans to help exhaust the heat: two 40mm fans in the front, a 120mm fan opposite the small vents in...
  • Forum Thread: Inspiron I530 Fan Control

    Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron I530 desktop with Vista 64. Who is responsible for fan control/thermal management, BIOS or Vista? I think it is BIOS but I want to make sure. The reason I ask is if I boot into a Linux CD, I will not have Vista running. I wouldn't want to overheat the thing. ...
