Boot says CPU fan error

Upon boot, my splash screen says CPU fan error, press F1 to continue. After loading Windows, I open HW Monitor and everything seems fine. I also ran 5 minutes of Prime 95 and my CPU temps remained fine and my fan acted accordingly. It sped up then when the test was over it slowed down. I'm posting this in Motherboard section because I think it may be a motherboard issue and the motherboard is what detected it, I think.

It has no other fans inside it. It has good ventilation and it never gets hot. Any advice? Thanks

I'm really funny but I don't know when to stop.
