When i go to boot up my computer, an alarm comes on (but not all the time) that says CPU FAN NOT WORKING! Shut down now? Y= yes n = no ... or something to that effect.
so.. I had a friend come down to look at it. At first, it didn't work... he said a wire was touching it or something (he took it apart).
He went to reboot... and it worked fine. We shut it down and turned it back on again, and the alarm went off again. So he replaced the fan.
Booted up, worked fine. Went to turn it on yesterday, alarm came on. so I took apart the computer. It worked yesterday fine after that.
I go to boot it up this morning, alarm goes off.... again. So... I took the computer apart (well just the case and the power supply box that's blocking whether the fan is running or not... well my view anyway)
I boot up the computer... CPU fan IS running... but the alarm goes off saying it's not. I shut down... and try once more... fan still runs... but the alarm goes off yet again.
What in the heck is going on??? And, is it safe to run my computer and boot up when it says CPU FAN NOT RUNNING, SHUT DOWN NOW? as long as the fan is indeed working? If it's safe to run like it is... I'd like to know, and if possible any solutions as to why it's doing that and how to fix it???
Thanks a ton!!!!
