Welcome to Geeks to Go

It appears does it not that the cooling fan has failed, the system overheated and a forced shutdown to protect the CPU

However in those circumstances it is sometimes too late and the damage has been done.

If it is a desktop - to save me looking at the Dell site then open the case, and see what is presented to you - any obvious problems with the fan

totally choked with dust etc.

I have had a look

Leave the cover off - is the fan spinning

If the fan is not spinning then clearly you are going no further until that at least is rectified.

It is no use trying to boot to Puppy as that will not work either, as you say CD does not work.

You are now in the ballgame of removing the HDD and connecting it to another computer, in an enclosure or docking station.


Removing a Hard Drive
  • Disconnect the power and hard-drive cables from the drive.

  • Press in on the tabs on each side of the drive and slide the drive up and out.
