e6220 fan noise

Has anyone else heard excessive fan noise / fan operation on these units? Out of 3, two have the fan either on all the time or on for about 5 seconds, off for 5 seconds and back on again. 

BIOS is at Rev 04 on all 3. Setups are the same on all 3, any ideas?

Re: e6220 fan noise

I have the same problem. It occurs only if the power supply is attached an the battery is charging.

Did you solve the issue?

Re: e6220 fan noise

I have this exact same problem.  Brand new machine.   Running 64 bit Win 7 Pro with 8 gigs of RAM..  The fan keeps coming on and turning off at random.  Usually only stays on for a few seconds then shuts off.  It is very annoying and frustrating.     Called tech support.  They replaced the motherboard and the fan onsite.  Still is doing the same thing.   It will do this all day.     Without me even doing anything right after a reboot.    No reason it should be doing this. 

It has to be some kind of bios update needed, or fan firmware or something right.  Chipset..   something.  


C'mon Dell   help us out here,   before my little beauty of a laptop blows up..  or I throw it against the wall.
