2 little nuts fell from fan F3 Inspiron 9100

I heard a little rattle inside the laptop.  I pulled Fan F3 out and 2 tiny bronze nuts fell out.

Laptop was about 2 weeks old when this happened.  I have 1 of the nuts still, lost the other....


Any idea if this is a big issue.  I don't really want to send the laptop back to Dell.....

It is hard to tell where they may have come from so you may be better off sending it it just to make sure you are not going to have a problem related to this down the road. If you are up to the challenge you may want to open up your system and see if you can locate where they may have come off of.

You can email Dell by Clicking Here for assistance.

Please include your system service tag and a description of the problem and troubleshooting done to try to resolve it.

You can also call Dell Technical Support. The phone number to contact our US Mobile Computing Hotline is 800-822-8965 for Corporate/Government Accounts or at 800-247-9252 for Direct accounts.

You will be connected to a Technical Specialist who will help you resolve the issue over the phone or arrange the appropriate service.

If you are outside of the United States, you will need to contact Dell in your global area.

Thank you for choosing Dell.
