Just purchased a repaired laptop Dell Inspiron e1505. It is my wife's and she says that the fan does not come on at all. Is this normal? I thought the fan was to keep things cool, but the bottom is hot and the charge cord box is hot. What should we do?

The fan should start to turn when the computer begins to warm up, put your ear up to it, are you certain it is not running? It could be that dust has built up inside and is blocking the airflow. I suggest trying canned air to blow through the intake and exhaust of the laptop. You can also use an air compressor but use no more than 40psi with an air nozzle, over speeding fans can shatter them.

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
