thanks for replying Doofus.
the thing is, the DVD rom doesn't work the right way. like, i have to push a pin in that small hole and then it ejects the box. and before installing this new fan when i used to start up my computer,say after 8 or 9 hours there used to be this grinding sound from the cpu (in my guessing it was from the DVD rom, cause its spoilt) that sound is less now. what would a new fan have to do with lessening that sound? (or was it never the sound from the DVD ROM?)
