Hi vinbren,

There is probably an option in your system setup (BIOS) that will disable the CMOS from detecting a dead fan. While you may be putting yourself in harm's way should the fan actually die and the shutoff mechanism is thereby disabled, it sounds like since you're using an auxiliary connector this wouldn't apply to you anyway.

Check the BIOS setup (generally accessed by pressing F1, F2, F10, del, or ESC when the system first POSTs) for hardware monitoring and see if you can turn it off.

CPU keeps overhreating.


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Error message shuts computer at start up...CPU fan failed. HP Pavilion M8400 F Phenom X49500 2.2 GHz (computer is new to me)


the trick is that there is more than one spot where you can plug in the CPU fan, had the same issue with an HP myself. try a different spot to plug in the CPU cooler. mine was in the upper right hand of the board and was labeled CFAN. the one i thought was for the CPU (it was same color as the fan connector) was actually a case fan connection.

You have voice message telling you CPU test failed , but does it BEEP at all ? if you have a Beep code then replace the CPU fan ( when CPU gets too hot it will either shut down or the PC will not boot up at all )

Processor fan failure massage.


I supose the fan works, you then need to enter bios and disable cpu fan monitoring, if the fan doesnt spin connect it to another fan connector or a plain 4pin molex connector / might require a adapter.

Try to get into bios and disable cpu fan fail alarm, keep the temperature alarm on 80 or 70. so it will yell if it gets too hot.
