Cpu fan error. Help

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Helllllllo All,

So yesterday I got an error after I rebooted my pc. It says my "CPU Fan has failed ! PC will automatically shut down to prevent damage" I have An AMD 785g mobo:

8 MONTH OLD SYSTEM (no warranty though)
Specs:
Athlon ii 250 3.0GHz
HD Radeon 4200 (graphics)
1TB (HHD)
5GB Ram

I can press f2 to bypass the message before it shuts off my pc. I have Everest Ultimate (PC diagnostics software utility) and it shows each CPU around 64°F-72°F (no load) and never goes past 75°F. I have CPU-Z but it doesnt show my fan speed. Is there another software I can get to see my CPU fan speed? ANd if I need a new fan, which would you recommend for around $30-$50. Oh, I have an aftermarket case, so space is not issue. Thanks

Use Speedfan. Maybe the fan is on its way out and is only spinning @ a low RPM.

Should also make sure the fan is plugged in securely to the CPU FAN header.

I have the same problem when my CPU heatsink PWM fan, when computer starts it's spinning at less than 600rpm it just says cpu fan failed... It's actually so annoying that I disable this warning because it does this every cold boot...

Yes, its plugged into the correct header. Its a 3 pin type. I have 2 on my mobo and I did try switching on each but no luck. Will try fanspeed.
