Re: XPS 8100 general, delivery, delays, hardware questions and discussions

Ok... I called dell support today and they told me that i'm not the only one that mentioned this problem. The processor fan speed increases evry minute to appr. 3500RPM for only 1 second then goes back to normal. It also does this when the system is idle. Even when it's just started up. Oh even when i'n in the biosscreen.

What are your specs? i do have the i7 and the A03 bios firmwre version. Maybe there's something else going on in my machine. i have no clue... The Dell fan test reported no problems.
