it is normal on some machines depending on the computer.

How old is it?  did it just start.

shouldnt be a problem  if it slows during xp boot.  but if it just start it could be a warning of hardware failure.

It's either a bad fan or bad motherboard, The tech you talked to at Dell is either a complete idiot, new, or both. If the fan is failing diags something is obviously wrong. First where it's new i would reseat the fan cable, if that doesn't work something needs replaced. It is true on some dell system during POST the fan(s) will run at high but after post, during boot it should slow down. If you don't want to call you can try dell chat.

gm jamietoner,

Thank you for you time!  I eneded up calling dell back, and got somebody a tad more seasoned.. He, inturn,  suspects the motherboard and is sendng out a tech to replace f.o.c.   :)           Again, thanks for dialog.

Nevermind.  A BIOS update from revision A08 to A17 resolved the issue for me.
