Fan problem

I have had persistent problems with my xps freezing and emitting a loud buzz - usually listening to music or watching a film on Netflix or similar.

Ran a diagnostic test and got this error message:


Validation 80001

Processor fan failed to respond correctly

Any advice welcome

RE: Fan problem

Check the fan to make sure it's rotating freely (free of dust) - - it it's not, try cleaning it.  If that doesn't solve the issue, replace the fan.
