Question about Dell Dimension E310 PC Desktop
I have a Dell Dimension E310 when I power up I get post message "CPU Fan Failure F1 to Continue F2 Setup" F1 does nothing. f2 goes to setup, there doesnt seem to be any thermal options in setup. The original cpu fan connector to the mother board is gone i have the fan wired to always be on full so no thermal issue actually exists, how can I bypass the post error or alternatively does any one have the correct wire pinout for the fan/motherboard it uses a four wire fan with a five pin connection currently I have it wired 1-white 2-red 3-black & 4 blue with pin 5 not used. Thanks Steve
Yep I have a link below you can order the correct fan from.
I had the same issue here, we have 20 offices all running Dells. These fans seem to be used only on dell systems.

strike F2 for setup utility and then find there "use default configuration or default optimized configuration" (something like that" then press F10 to save and exit.
Replace the CMO battery and then do the above statement.

This can usually be solved by resetting the CMOS.
Unplug the power from the back of the tower. Open the side of your case and locate the round battery near the lower-right side of the main board. Pop the battery out. Just below it you should see 2 little gold colored pins sticking up. Right around it it should say 'Clear CMOS' in very fine print. Take a small screwdriver and hold it to the two pins so they are shorted or touching each other through the screwdriver for a few seconds. Place the battery back in the machine and see if this works.
