I have a Dell desktop Inspiron 530s with an Intel dual core processor.  T he cooling fan started running full speed all the time.  Very noisy.  I blew out the heatsink - didn't help.  I downloaded a program called Speed Fan and it says my GPU temp is high (57C) and my temp 1 is high (124C).  Touching the cpu heatsink does not feel even real warm.  CPU usage seems normal.  Any ideas?

Have you checked fan settings in the BIOS setup?

It could be a failing heatsink, due to the age of the machine probably.

But it can be replaced, plenty of aftermarket coolers that can do such an old socket.

Got a computer repair shop if you are not skilled?

If not plenty of videos on the matter
