Whenever I boot up my computer I get the message "Hardware Monitor found an error. Enter Power Setup menu for details." When I accessed the Power Setup menu, I found a screen which said Hardware Monitor, and this is what it said:

I don't know what to make of this, so could someone explain to me exactly what is wrong and what I should do? This has been going on for a while and I haven't really gave any thought to it until now.

Sometimes when the mother board battery is to low it will force you to "continue by a key" or to "enter bios".
Is the main system clock keeping time?
What is the clock and date time in the bios?

You might want to replace the battery on the board. Its a round battery like a watch battery.

Sorry for the late reply, I finally got around to changing the battery, but that didn't solve the problem. Although, now I did find that in the hardware monitor screen, the Chassis Fan Speed value was red, so I'm guessing that's the problem, but now, I don't know which of the fans in my computer is the chassis fan. Below is a picture I took of the inside of my computer. I've found and numbered three fans, so if someone can help me distinguish which one is the chassis fan, it would be greatly appreciated:

Although the third fan I'm guessing is not the chassis, since I think it's connected to my hard drive.

1 is the chasis fan
2 is the CPU fan
3 is your power supply aka PSU (the fan is there to cool the PSU).
