Question about HP (P2074-63003) Motherboard
My CPU fan shuts off, I get a warning that CPU fan is not working and the computer will shutdown. Tried new fan, but have the same problem. Plugged the fan into a different spot and it works as it should. I still get the same warning and eventual shutdown. Any sugestions?
You must have the CPU fan plugged into the CPU fan power connector or the system can not monitor the fans speed. Your PC will shut down & give you that message. (The fan must be connected to the correct power plug).
If when you did replace the CPU's fan & had to remove the heat sink, which is where the fan screws into & did not clean the old thermal grease off the CPU & heatsink & replace with new thermal grease than your CPU will still overheat. If you add thermal grease over top of old thermal grease your CPU will over heat.
This is all a balancing act. If any one is not correct your system will shut down. (This is better than killing the CPU).
To remove old thermal grease use a clean cloth damped with house hold alcohol & use the same on the bottom of the heatsink. Please allow plenty of time for the alcohol to dry.
Good Luck! Take your time.
