Hp Mecia Center m7060n fan failed, new fan not detected

My pc crashed a long time ago (probably two/three years ago) with a fan problem. It would always read upon startup system fan failure, please service pc to prevent damage. I just pulled it out of the closet and put a new fan in it. The new fan isn't detecting and the error message still appears at start up. I know I somehow need to detect the fan but I don't know how to do that. Please let me know if you can help!

The fan must be the correct fan
i guess you meant the CPU fan, ? desktops can have 2 or 3 fans.
the fan has 3 wires, in many cases, the 3rd wire is a RPM tachometer that if not correct the PC can not read RPM
if RPM reads 0 the PC will be very upset. and do that.
my guess you bought the wrong fan, and is super easy to do
giving the many fans
on some PCs the BIOS monitors the fan RPM and heat sink temperatures, or both, and tells yous fan bad for either failing

on my PC here, now, I can go in to bios and see both live sensors
RPM and Temperature. this allows for easier diagnosis
i dont think your PC has that page in BIOS to do monitors for trouble shooting, in fact mine has 3 fans all 3 are monitored, now.
high end PC .

this older desktop , only the m7200 pages are there. at hp.
so cant look at the fan nor BIOS.

i use a windows program that lets me watch the fan speeds
and all CPU and GPU core temperatures. (ask) its free.
the troubleshooting guide at HP stops short at this problem
says get it fixed. so you want to fix it your self sure.
so talk to one of the top, CPU/HEATSINK/FAN makers
and buy this from them.
if the fan spins fast and RPM is 0 wrong fant
if the fan spins fast and RPM is ok, then the BIOS dont like the CPU temperature... this has 3 causes.
fan dead. or slow. or wrong fan installed
heat sink fins packed in lint as all do ever year.
heat sink thermal bond compound failure, common.

SOURCE: HP D530 SFF CHASIS FAN NOT DETECTED

Should be an alarm setting, usually in the bios, for both chassis intrution and fan and cpu warnings. disable it and no error message.
Most likely the fan power is connected to the wrong fan port on the motherboard itself and placing it on the correct port will fix the issue.

SOURCE: I have an HP Pavilion

This is caused due to wire signals that are sent from the fan to the motherboard.

Open your system case and make sure the fan is running. If it is running then make sure the cable terminating on the motherboard is properly inserted. You can take it out and re-insert.

If issue persists, then you may have to change the whole fan or disable the warning option in BIOS which can be dangerous.

Media Center m7060n PC Desktop: My m7060n Tower turns on, but the key board blinks...


It sounds like you have a board that is not booting at all. Remove everything from the board except the system RAM and CPU and switch it on. If it boots now, shut it down and then replace each individual item one at a time, booting the machine after each item is refitted/connected until you fit something that prevents the machine from booting. Pay special attention to system RAM sticks by removing them/it and refitting it as bad connections in the RAM socket can also cause a boot failure but removing and refitting the sticks usually cures this issue.

Start up problem


I've checked your media center model on the net and it appears to be a known BIOS problem. Keep in mind that this is most likely video card or motherboard failure. But we can try resetting it Try booting into the BIOS using the F10 key and then pressing F12 and pressing y. The system should reboot with the default BIOS settings. If there is any change you likely have a good chance at fixing it. Please post your results.

Power outage, now pc will not power up at all


OK FIRST A POWER SURGE PROTECTOR WILL ONLY PROTECT YOU 7 % OF THE TIME, WHICH YOU JUST REALIZED. SO YOU NEED TO BUY A BATTERY BACKUP ALSO KNOWN AS A UPS.... I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. BRING YOUR PC TO BEST BUY AND THEY WILL TEST YOUR POWER SUPPLY, IF IT TESTS OUT OK THEN YOU BLEW SOMETHING IN YOUR MOTHERBOARD. GET A BATTERY BACKUPS/UPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HP Media Center Desktop w/XP


Why would you want to connect to Windows? Yecch. Go to OSNews.com and check around for an interesting OS and filesystem combination.

Still, I'd chalk it up to your having plugged another bootable volume into the machine (e.g. a CD ROM) or otherwise changing the setup from what you brought to GeekSquad. Honestly, you've described the problem circumstances quite poorly. Does it not beep before booting -any- OS?
