Question about Intel D850MV Motherboard
It seems that the problem may not be in the fan or related to heat. Even with a "hot" old P4 it takes about 1-2 minutes before it reaches any higher temperatures, this since it's not having any load until you boot into windows. I think it might be faulty or leaking c apacitors - a common problem on older boards. If you look at the capacitors on the top - are they bulgy or flat ? if not perfectly flat they might be faulty and thus giving you the symptoms you describe.

Chances are that until you solve the problem with the CPU fan, the system will not boot. Is the fan plugged in? Most CPU fans plug into a special connector (known as a "fan header") on the motherboard (the connector is often labeled "CPU FAN"); CHECK CAREFULLY to be certain that the fan is still plugged in properly... If you can get the fan to work again, the system just might boot up and begin working again... if you can't get the fan working properly again, buy a suitable replacement; whatever else you do, do NOT try to run the computer without a working CPU fan. Good luck; hope this helps you sort out the problem...
