Re: Case fan rpm problem, error msg on boot up
This is not that unusual, I have an HP with the same sensor error on it's PS fan. Generally you can disable the warning if you know the fan is working by going into BIOS and poking around.
If this is not an option in your BIOS, you can try simply replacing the effected fan as it is difficult to test which has failed, the motherboard sensor or the sensor in the fan.
When you replace the fan $10, it will either continue on it's way or give you the error, if it still gives the error, comment back with the make and model of the board and we'll see what else we can do for you.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Make sure that cpu fans are running normally. Go to BIOS (generally with F2 on intel motherboards), and there will be information about cpu temperature, also fan speed (in RPM). If fan speed is 0 or very low problem is in cpu fan. (connection problem might be). If cpu fan speed is normal (high value) and cpu temperature is high, I will suggest you to open your PC case (or notebook) and see whether cpu fan is dirty or not. This is very common problem. If so, clean it.
The hard disk may be running too hot. The desktop case inside temperature maybe too hot. Check the power supply fan/CPU fan are operating correctly. You may need additional cooling in the desktop case an additional fan near the hard disk.
On motherboard. Please, make sure all fans are connected into motherboard. Some fans can't plug in into the board at all. So, you can ignore those fans. When you go to Bios to check thermal condition, if a fan is not plug in, you can see 0 degree. 0 degree dosen't cause the shutdown problem. (That's why you can ignore) Then check which fans are causing problem, first. (If you did and found the problem, go next.) Replace fans AND clean those dust! If the problem remains, then replace its case to steel one.
Well, usually a lifetime of CPU fan is pretty longer than others.
Just in case, one more thing, if the thermal condition is OK, then the shutdown problem is caused by something ales!
Please let me know what is the make and the model of the pc that you are using.. Also, go to the bios, under boot menu, make sure that you have hard drive as the first boot option.. For further queries please get in touch..
When adding a new graphics card (Your's being a PCI-Express), you must change a bios setting under the title " Advanced " section. Open you're M2N-MX manual & turn to page 2-21. You need to change the boot order for you're graphics to list,
[PEG/PCI]. Change Initiate Graphic Mode Select to [Disable].
These changes stop the onboard graphics card from loading & allow the PCI-Express card to load. The issue of possible motherboard overheating can be caused by many things. Here is a list of things to check.
1). Check the CPU heat-sink fan. Make sure the fan blades are
free from dust build up. Check fan speed in bios (Its RPM will be listed). It should be running a min of 2300 RPM.
2). Also in the bios is Hardware monitor. By booting into the bios go to this & watch the temp of CPU & motherboard. If either is getting too hot suggest you add a side case 3" fan to the system to help lower the CPU & motherboard temp.
Well, since you connected your fan directly to the power supply, you are not getting any feedback thru the graphics card interface. This doesn't mean there is a problem since your fan is running full speed all the time, it is actually better and you should be able to see a difference on the GPU temperature.
If the GPU temperature is still too high and the fan is running at full speed, did you apply a thin coat of thermal paste on the heatsink? if not, there is your problem.
Now just to be clear did you connect the fan to the power supply or to a spare motherboard connector. If you connected to your motherboard, you need to go in the BIOS and change some settings regarding the fan speed (let me know if this is the case and I'll help you further about that.)
