YES SUDIPTO, THE FAN IS CONSTANTLY RUNNING,,, I COULD KISS "u"

THE TOWERS CORRECT # XXXXX W-3609 ( SORRY ) AND THANKS !!!!!!!

Tech Support Specialist: Sudipto, Hardware Engineer replied 8 years ago
Ok
There is nothing to worry this is a common problem this happens due to dust on the heatsink fan which is used to cool down the main processor nothing much you have to do just open the tower cover (if possible) or take help from any friend blow power full air inside the tower to remove the dust and this should resolve your issue.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
