New case fan running but still getting error message system fan failed.


Did you try;

Power off, power unplugged to computer.
Press the Power On button, and hold it in. Hold for a count of 10 seconds.
Let go.

Do this procedure two more times.

Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

This method clears CMOS Error Codes, and sets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

When i boot up the laptop i get a message 'Main Fan Error' the fan runs on start up then stops just before i get the error message. Fan will not restart... Joseph


Hi,

This message means that the fan on your CPU (processor) is failing or has failed. This is not good because if the fan on the CPU fails your CPU will overheat and cause your machine to lock up and become non-functional till it cools down and then the same cycle will repeat till the fan is replaced.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

MAC PRO dual2.3- freezes, gray screen crash, freeze with hi fan mode,kernel panic reports, all require start button shut down. Some forums suggest ATI card failure. I'm lost.


All computers will shut them selves off or crash when fans are failing, or have failed. Cooling fans are plugged into the motherboard, and firmware on the MB keeps track of the system fans, along with everything else. If a system fan is failing, or has failed, the signal is sent to shut down. Some PC's will shut down cleanly, others give error messages, and some just freeze up. Of course, Bad RAM, video cards, and hard drives with bad sectors, can also cause problems like you have discribed.
I would write down any error messages, and beep codes, and then look them up online for a place to start.

System fan has failed


Your system's fan has failed. If it is under warranty, you need to have HP made aware of this failure.

Fan flow error 1611 I/O


The ProLiant DL380 G3 server requires that both primary and redundant fans exist in a specific configuration in order to perform optimally. Any deviation from the specified configuration will cause one of the above error messages to occur and the internal Health LED to illuminate. In a ProLiant DL380 G3 server without the redundant fan option, the server will shut down after the error message is displayed. In a server with the redundant fan option, the internal Health LED will illuminate and the appropriate error message regarding fan redundancy will be displayed. The purpose of this document is to detail the required configuration for both primary and redundant fans.
DETAILS Both primary and redundant fans in the ProLiant DL380 G3 server must be configured to meet specific requirements in order to avoid the error messages above and in some instances, subsequent shutdown of the server.
All primary fan locations (2, 4, 5, 6 and 7) must be populated with a fan before the redundant fan locations (1, 3, or 8) are populated. If a primary fan location is left unpopulated, the server will display one or more of the error messages shown above. In addition, the internal Health LED (the top LED on the front panel of the server) will display the status of the fans.
When the redundant fan option is used, all redundant fan locations must be populated. ProLiant servers do not support partial population of redundant fans. If any redundant fan location is populated without also populating all other redundant fan locations in the server, the fan system will not be fully redundant and one or more of the error messages above will be displayed.
Figure 1 below illustrates a ProLiant DL380 G3 server configured with all eight fans installed for fan redundancy. The server airflow is divided into three zones: processor, I/O and power supply. Shared fans 4 and 7 each provide airflow for two zones. If a shared fan fails, the failure is experienced in both zones.
Figure 1: ProLiant DL380 G3 server configured with all eight fans installed for fan redundancy
The internal Health LED (the top LED on the front panel of the server) indicates failed or missing components. The internal Health LED should be observed to determine the status of the fans as follows:
RED LED: A red LED indicates that the minimum fan requirements have not been met. Minimum fan requirements indicate that all primary fan slots must be populated with functioning fans.
  • If the 1611 fan "x" is not present (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is red , then a primary fan is missing.

  • If the 1611 fan "x" failure (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is red , then a primary fan has failed.
AMBER LED: An amber LED indicates that the minimum fan requirements have been met; however, requirements for redundant fan configuration have not been met. This means that all primary fan slots are populated with functioning fans, but at least one redundant fan has either failed or is missing.
  • If the 1611 fan "x" is not present (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is amber , then a redundant fan is missing.

  • If the 1611 fan "x" failure (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is amber , then a redundant fan has failed.
Note: In a redundant fan configuration, the error message fan system not fully redundant will also be displayed at POST if any redundant fan slot is left unpopulated or if a redundant fan has failed.

Cpu fan noisy/chip fan fail error messages


pils,

Yes. This sounds like a fan issue. The noise often comes from bearings failing within the fan. Also, a failing bearing can make things harder on the motor as it brings the fan up to speed. This is likely the reason that you see increased warnings during the fan speed check while booting because it comes to speed more slowly as bearing wear increases.

I give this a 90% chance that your CPU fan is causing the issue. Since a decent CPU fan will cost you ~$20 online, it's not much out of your pocket if you happen to uncover another culprit.

I'll keep an eye on this post. Let me know how things go.
