Hi friends,

There is a easy and working solution to this laptop fan noise problem !!!

Just try to adjust power saving settings of Win7.

Go to:

Windows 7 Power Options:

  • click the Windows "Start" button

  • Enter "Power Options" in the Search field and then click on
    "Power Options" in the Result list

on there go to :

 Change plan settings

on there go to :

Change advanced power settings

 on there go to :

Processor power management

set ALL Maximum processor state   settings  to   66%         (try 44% if its still too noisy for you)

 

THATS it.  Laptop FAN is now much more silent.   This works on all windows 7 laptops I have tryed this.  emoticon.BigSmile.title

 Some screenshots of those power save settings panels in windows 7

Not really a solution cutting max performance down by a third.  In my case I think it was a 'dud' build.  Despite replacement the fan was still very noisy, even on low fan speeds.  It sounded like it was ticking against something.  (And this was after Dell replacement).

Eventually returned the laptop.

Hi Harish,

I'm experiencing the same issue. I bought Dell XPS 14 few days ago and I cannot stand the noise....As it is new so i don't think cleaning vents gonna do any good. The bios is also up-to-date A13. What should I do?

AFAIK there is no solution to get this fan working silent. I think it's the design of the fan and the frequency of the noise that the fan produces. And I don't believe that Dell will make a replacement part with another design.
