I noticed my fans wont turn on...unless when i reboot i go through the bios then i hear them turn on, but other then that the computer will just run, I checked with the bottom lid off the the fans wont spin, unless i go to the bios first for some reason. after they turn on the computer cools right down, but when there not functioning that's a problem. any ideas?

If the machine is getting pretty hot without them turning on then there may be some sort of temp sensor failure. This would make it think that it's not running hot at all. Sounds like a job for Dell unfortunately.

Yep I agree with Matty give support a call but before you do check you have the latest BIOS as I no their was a fix for fans in the new BIOS for the m18 and maybe relevant for other systems too
