I have acquired a dell dimension 2200 it boots up ok but i
notice the psu fan doesn't work. Is it thermal controlled? I note
that the cpu fan is right next to the PSU vents, is that meant to
keep the psu cool? thanks.

Hello, TyQuAnDo!

I have followed you from the hardware group, to see if you got an answer to
your problem. I have a dimension 3000, and the PSU must be thermaly
controlled, as mine has started to sound like a jet taking off in this hot
weather.

I believe I have a PSU problem so will go ask my question now

The (Inspiron)2200 is a notebook.

The Dimension 3000 PSU fan is not variable speed. The CPU/chassis fan,
however, is.

Closer examination shows you are correct thanks.

I have just found the CPU fan making a lot of noise. Removing the side
panel, and the speed dropped immediately, and then after about 3 minutes
dropped to a normal speed.

This suggests to me that there is insufficient open spaces in the case to be
coping with the currently high temperatures here in the UK. Is anybody else
experiencing this?

If the fan is not broken/malfunctioning, then it is simply a matter of
ambient air temps in the desk/room. If you want to prove this, take it to
an open area in the coolest room in the house and it will likely remain
quiet.
