Dell 1525 fan problem

Hello,
Being a computer noob, I have Dell 1525. Now my fan makes huge noise when I start Dell 1525 .This should make a week that it was open all the time. I download speedfan to see it and the temperature around 55 ? C.. I updated the bios but it does not change anything. I know that this notebook to include defects in the fan. Is there a possibility to control the fan on the Inspiron 1525?

Configuration
Dell Inspiron 1525
Microsoft Vista
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T7250@2.00GHz

That started recently, then start by taking the fan out and cleaning it, also clean the heat sink while you're there. Sometimes a dust will build up on or around one blade more than the others and cause the fan to wobble creating excessive noise.

Re: Dell 1525 fan problem

You can try replacing the fan, some fans are louder than others, even the same make and model. You can also try the tune up from Dell's support site for your machine. I placed a link bellow for the application. Some tune ups have fan patches that decrease the noise level, this one doesn't give specifics to what it fixes, so give it a try, it may work for you. If not, then you can always contact Dell and have them take a look, I imagine this machine is still under warranty. Anyway, give these a try and let me know.
