So I changed my cooling fan on dell laitude 4GB Ram because of noise. Now when the replacement fan starts up I get 100%cpu usage and lagging computer. Computer is perfect when fan not running.
I downloaded the "speedfan" monitor and is running about 49C without fan running and then is cools to 34C.
I thermal pasted my cpu and heat sink.
Did I get a faulty fan?
One thought being my 2 G ram went bad or overheated before I changed it out the fan.
Any assistance would be great.
