The PC won't let the user get past the boot screen due to fan failure error.
yes we can disable chassis intrusion in BIOS. That'll shut the stupid low battery and fan alert up ha ha lmao

Good smart man! That is one of the things that can easily be overlooked especially on old Dell systems such as GX270, 280, and the 620's.... The 745 and 755 are less ghey... meaning they use more Japanese nichicon caps.
Asus P5B Deluxe mommyboard has even better components! Running like a tank, stellar condition. It's almost 7 years old!
Thermal error isn't directly related to the capacitor problems but you might have both issues!
i say hell with it do the following:
- Leave that old cpu fan connected hanging dangling loose... disable chassis intrusion alert in bios.
- Remove the old heatsink and watercool that biotch (CPU)! Wattachillin'
Or just throw out the PC and get a custom build PC. You don't want Dell proprietary ghey stuff.
