    I must admit I thought that too. My daughter is forever running "diagnostic software" which can modify all sorts of things. I discounted the message because I didn't believe two fans could fail together.
    However I found that this PC has only one fan and that had some bum fluff in it. Cleaned it out and all is OK.
    Another example of Bill Gates sloppy programming, the bios must think that it is on a desktop!
    Thanks anyway.

Sounds like you may have a virus or trojan of some sort. They are hard to get rid of but try downloading avg 8.0 it's free and picks up most trojans and viruses. If you get a black screen with boot message just hit control alt delete together and your pc should bypass this problem and allow you in. If avg doesn't pick up trojan or virus it maybe a software failure but it will usually tell you whats missing and if pc was working fine and just started this it is most likely a virus or trojan

dont they all , eventually. all do a fact. but why ? so leave that old battery out, run on AC for ever if you wish and for SURE TESTING. they love to fail and overload the PC. so with AC good power pack no main battery does the power turn on? y/n does the fan run (above is yes) does the cd tray eject does the bios message show on the screen, it must "hit f10 to setup?" means BIOS page. does it, or is the screen back totally no text EVER. even hitting the F10 key or the key it told you to hit for 10 years. that is called fan running and not packed up. the black screen of *****. we have no idea what YOU can do, your skills your tools, ? how can any person know that. if not black screens of deathh then say so and say what you saw fully this time. http://pcdied.com/black-screen.html its a nx9020 (2004, 13 long hard years old.!!!) not 9020, the nx matters . big time top black screens fan ok are? COIN cell dead. CMOS RTC battery coin main battery shorted, nah its parked on shelf. CCFL lamps it PC are dead. as all are this old do the flash light trick yet, fan blowing.
