Try to load into bios (some cases depending on a model you can try with F1, F2 or F10 or even a DEL button on keyboard)..
Load bios F5 then save the changes F10 and try restarting the pc.. most of the cases it worked.

Re: system fan has failed
When the system fan or cpu fan fails you will get this message, or sometimes the computer will actually start, but then shut itself down. The only way to fix this problem is to replace the failed or failing fan. If you don't know how to replace a fan inside a computer, then I highly reccomend that you hire someone to replace it, or get a friend who knows what they are doing, to replace it.

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.

do a system restore from the system repair when you first start it up it should tell you what key to press once you get into system repair you can use system restore to fix the problem or either go to safe mode and do it from there then it will fix your problem
Some of those OEM systems have built in fail safe's like that to try and keep them running longer w/o failing. Just get a hold of Dell and get a replacement fan, they should send instructions on how to put it in yourself! :)
By initial message, I assume you are talking about the auto attendant message heard when dialing your main line
To change the message: 1. Dial the voice mail extension number, then press "*" when you hear the greeting. 2. Enter the system administrator mailbox number and password. 3. The system will tell you how full the hard drive is...press "9" to skip and enter the system menu. 4. Press "3" for the custom recordings. 5. Then press "1" to record or edit the messages.
You will need to know the recording number of the message you want to change.

1. Restart your machine 2. Enter BIOS by pressing F2 3. Scroll down to 'System Security' 4. Press Enter 5. Scroll down to Chassis Detection 6. Arrow over to 'Disabled' 7. Press Escape 8. Save changes and exit.
In some bios is in bios in the section BOOT and BOOT SETTING CONFIGURATION and disable CASE CHASSIS WARNING.
Your bios may be slightly different from the above. check inside the settings and find the case chassis warning option.
Hey! To play messages press the clear/mute button then the number 2 button and then press the green phone symbol then your messages should play. To turn off do exactley the same but instead of pressing number 2 press number 8! Hope that helps!
