You can simply disable the reporting feature from the CMOS of your computer but that is not advisable, try changing the exhaust fan of your cpu to correct the rpm then resolve the error

What makes 511-cpu fan not detected and 512-chassis not detected


Are you seeing this error on a system you built or a pre-built system? If it is a pre-built system, check that the fans are running. Next check where the fans are plugged in, the CPU fan must be connected to the CPU fan connector on your motherboard. The chassis (rear case fan) only needs to be connected to the motherboard if you want the monitoring/PWM (modulated fan speed) option. If your CPU fan is powered directly from the power supply, change this.

If this is a system you built or recently updated the case, check your fan power connections, as above. Next check the fan speed. My ASUS board will give the "CPU fan not detected" error if the CPU fan speed is too slow. A different CPU fan will solve the problem. (I got my fan with the CPU; it works fine.)

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your system for more assistance.

A Comprehensive Guide on Computer Beep Codes. (AWARD BIOS)


When a computer is booted up its BIOS, it performs a power-on self test, also known as POST, to test and verify the computers hardware and to make sure all components are working properly. Here's a comprehensive guide on how to determine which component has failed on a particular beep code and give you an idea on where to start for troubleshooting.

The exact meaning of the beep codes depends on the type and version of BIOS that you have. The three most popular types of BIOS are those made by Award, American Megatrends (AMI) and Phoenix. If you are using a PC made by a company that writes its own BIOS, e.g. DELL, HP, etc, you will have to consult your PC user's manual or the company's web site for assistance.


Beep Codes for Award Bios.

1 long, 2 short = Video adapter error

Troubleshooting: Either video adapter is bad or is not seated properly.

Repeating (endless loop) = Memory error

Troubleshooting: Check for improperly seated or missing memory. Reseat the memory if you can.

1 long, 3 short = No video card or bad video RAM.

Troubleshooting: Reseat or replace the video card.

High frequency beeps while running = Overheated CPU

Troubleshooting: Check the CPU fan for proper operation. Check the case for proper air flow.

Repeating High/Low = CPU failure.Either the CPU is not seated properly or the CPU is damaged. May also be due to excess heat.

Troubleshooting: Check the CPU fan or BIOS settings for proper fan speed.


I will be posting more tips on other versions of BIOS.
Hope this helps.

Pc suddenly powers off


that can be meaning if the processor is Not Supported with your motherboard,or the New Processor is not in good condition (can be Over Heat or damage).
Processor over heat or damage can be because the HEAT SINK (white or grey pasta at the top of processor) is not enaugh to cooling the processor or,the fan Proseccor is Dirty.

When I start my computer, I'll get a black screen with a bunch of text with "American Megatrends" as the header. The screen is unusual, and on the bottom it says "CPU fan error!, press F1 to...


You need to plug in your CPU fan. The CPU fan is VERY important in that it constantly cools your processor, making sure your computer doesn't over heat. If the computer runs and the fan isn't running, the CPU will over heat and cost you hundreds of dollars.
Turn off the power Unplug your computer Open up the case of your computer Find your CPU fan Find the cord coming from it Find the plug on your motherboard labeled CPU fan Plug it in there Plug your computer back in Turn it on

WHEN I TURN MY COMPUTER ON A ERROR MESSAGE COMES ON "CPU FAN TO LOW"


This message is a warning that the CPU cooling fan is no longer turning fast enough to adequately cool the CPU. You should not use your computer until the fan is replaced.or the CPU could be permanently damaged as a result of over-heating.

Unless you have replaced these fans before, I would advise you to have the fan replaced by a PC technician as it's pretty easy to damage the processor when removing/installing the fan.

CPU Fan Error. System Halted in asus P5SD2-VM


(CPU fan error, system halted). This is a safety feature so as not to fry the CPU.
Odds are the that the CPU fan either real dirty or the fan is going bad which means you'll need to replace the heat sink assembly.
You can buy an OEM CPU heat-sink assembly, see below.
http://www.xpcgear.com/in3.html
See page 1-11 to 1-12 in your manual.
CPU Intel socket 775 (removing). See video below.

HP 873N CPU fan error


Yes, It is possible to be a board problem much more likely to be a dust /dirt problem. I have not found anywhere to purchase the CPU fans by themselves.Would obve to be wrong on this one; seems that they are sold along with the heatsinks. My favorate is : Newegg. com  but another is: Tiger.com

All you will need to know is your CPU  socket number. You can look that up in tghe manual:
I provided a link to the HP manual for you computer below. I beleive,once opened , you wil see the dust and dirt which may have caused a failer of the CPU fan. Filters are available for the same websites as the fan/heatsinks.

Hardware monitor found an error


Diagnosis: Lack of P.S.U. fan speed report indicates P.S.U. fan sensor damaged by overheating. This was caused by cooling fin blockage since the Sony design on this model cools the C.P.U. THROUGH the P.S.U.
Expert level fix: Remove P.S.U. Remove C.P.U. fan and vacuum. Remove C.P.U. cooling fins from C.P.U. and cooling fan mounts from fin box, vacuum. Reassemble C.P.U cooling system. Replace P.S.U. with O.E.M. part only since in this case it is proprietary to the unit.
