The exhaust fan needs to have a working sensor on it I believe. Maybe that is what he means?

Could it be the communication port (for modem/BBA) is bad. He said games where he tried to connect to the Internet and browsers crashed his Dreamcast. I cannot think of anything else being this is a stranger than usual problem. He might have to buy a new DC.

It is a defect that all Dreamcast with a 3-wire fan will have in the future.

my dreamcast resets before the game is loaded, is not about the modem, I tried to load the browsers without modem and its still crushing.
