Hi Benson.if your fan connector doesn't have the amount of pins that Christopher mentioned your motherboard will not detect it even if it's functioning properly. To disable such notifications you will need to go into BIOS and search for the CPU fan. You might be able to find it. If not look for a BIOS update which might fix the issue. Another thing you can try with the BIOS is to reset it, easiest way is just to remove its battery. After 30 secs put it back, boot up your PC and let the BIOS detect the hardware again. Hope this helps.

Most CPU fans are PWM (4 Pins)
Some motherboards can work with a 3 pin(Speed Sensor) CPU fan.
Some motherboards require a 4 pin CPU fan.
Since you have 4 fans, plug the 4 Pin fans to the 4 pin fan connections,
and the 3 pin fans to the 3 pin fan connections.
Try a boot.
We find using 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, 80mm, and 120mm fans to test, (because they turn at different speeds), makes any errors in the BIOS or motherboard obvious.

You're sure you have the cpu fan connected to the correct socket? sounds like it's not connected, or is connected to a different socket. Does the fan turn?

    Thank you for the response. I have since returned that motherboard and the supplier also failed to fix the problem. Yes, the fan was connected to the right socket. I got a replacement and it works perfectly.

SOURCE: cpu fan noisy /chip fan fail

You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.

Hope that fixed ya...

SOURCE: cpu fan noisy/chip fan fail error messages

I had tons of problems with these Asus chip fans. I asked Asus to deliver 12 replacements (as I had a lot of pcs at that time with the same problem) It worked well, but placing a tiny heatsink well glued to the chip worked well also, as long as one does not want to overclock the thing. It's true that the temp raised a bit, but it remained pretty much in the tolerance area.

SOURCE: ASUS P5KPL-AM CPU fan connection.

You should still be able to connect the 3 pin connector of the fan to the 4 pin connector on the mobo, the keying tab is offset so that you cannot connect it to the wrong pins.
If you still don't want, or can't connect it there, simply go on the Bios (press delete after you turn on your computer) and you will find an option to monitor CPU fan speed.
If you need any more help, let me know

It sounds like the cpu's temperature is raising over the safety level set in the bios so it switches off and displays the error!
to solve this either:

Your cpu cooler fan needs replacing

or

Your current cooler fan isn't connected to the correct socket on your board (check you're user manual, usually a .pdf you can download from manufacturers site)

or

Just try connecting your current cooler fan to the cpu and see if it turns on at all. If not make sure you replace it with one that is compatible with your system that can fit in your case

If the temperature has raised to a significant level the thermal paste could probably use replacing also, so get some thermal paste remover and thermal paste, and read in your motherboard user manual how to replace the cpu heat sink safely.

is the new cooler fan does not draw enough power from the terminals that supply the CPU fan. The motherboard is looking for a specific amount of power from the terminal and gives a warning of a failure when the current drawn is different from the specs. You could look at the old cooler to see if the current requirements are marked on it and then match that current with additional fans ETC to the cooler you are wanting to use.

Does not boot up, fans start, internet plugs light, clicks on and off.....seems this is a common problem for these machines, what is the fix?


Instructions
  1. When you press the Power button to start the boot process, the LED lights glow while the computer verifies that there is sufficient electrical power to activate the hardware.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LED lights on the computer do not glow or the LEDs blink briefly and then stop. There is no sound of the fan or hard drive spinning, and the screen remains blank. The computer will not start if there is insufficient battery or AC adapter power.
  2. The BIOS queries various hardware components used for the startup boot process.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow but there is no fan or hard drive sound. The LEDs may glow briefly and then go out.

    Or

    The LED lights blink, stop, and then blink a second or third time, but there is no sound from the computer and the screen remains blank. The sequence of the blinking lights indicates a specific error code.

    Or

    A series of beeping tones is heard. The sequence of beeping tones indicate a specific error code.

    If a hardware component has recently been replaced, or if the PC has been jarred or shaken, there may be a loose connection to the memory chips or hard drive which prevents the computer from starting.
  3. The BIOS loads the basic input (keyboard) and output (advanced LEDs / display screen / boot drives) devices into memory.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, but then the boot process stops and a black screen - with an error message - displays.

    The boot check has detected a communication error or conflict with a hardware component that must be corrected.
  4. The BIOS loads the Windows operating system and starts the services that allow low-level control of all of the background operations.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the LEDs glow, the fan or hard drive sounds, are heard, the HP or Compaq Logo displays on a black screen, but then the boot process stops and a blue screen - with an error message - displays.

    The boot check has detected a hardware driver error or a software conflict that must be corrected.
  5. Control is transferred to the Windows loader to initiate the display of the advanced settings in the Windows environment.

    The Windows logo displays during this step.

    Effect & Solution: When you press the power button, the computer performs all the steps in the boot process, but after the Windows Logo displays, the moving Windows progress bar or the rotating cursor stops moving and the boot process stops.

    An error message may display on a screen with the Windows logo. In some instances, there is no specific error message.

    Or

    A black screen appears and the computer attempts to restart.

    The Windows self-check has detected a software conflict that must be corrected.

With asus m4a785-m motherboard and amd phenom x4 9600b quad core cpu why does monitor displays a cpu fan error when fan is running full speed.


Hmm, I've never seen a computer give a CPU fan error. Maybe if the fan is really dusty it's clogging it up, try getting some canned air and spraying it out.

Intel D865GVHZ (Gateway Hazelton) motherboard system cooling fan


This fan error message shows up when the CPU fan is not plugged into the CPU FAN plug on the motherboard. The Intel D865GVHZ
motherboard has a total of 4-fan plugs so it is easy to plug the CPU fan into one of the other fan plugs that is not marked CPU FAN on the motherboard.

DFI Infinity NF4 SLI won't start


Hi steve, PC repair is trial & error. I suggest you replace the power supply or test the power supply in another PC that also uses 4 SATA drives & two PCI-E slots for starters. Two boards with the same problem is odd. You must have the CPU & fan connected, memory installed, ATA 24_pin main power plugg connected (Page 17 in manual). 4-pin_12v power connected which is located (Just to the left of DDR1 memory slot). Looking at you're board the power supply should be no less than 500w.
CPU must have thermal grease between CPU & heat sink.
Even though you have fans running & LED's on & flashing, the power supply seems to be the first item to check. Make sure the bottom of the motherboard is not touching the PC case.
Try the above & post you're finding here.

Good Luck!
Mike

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.
