    Cpu fan not functioning properly!!


    I have recently received a socket A motherboard from a friend to test. On inserting my own fan and when i switch it on I receive an error message saying "Cpu fan not functioning properly!!" this message appears for a short time and the computer cuts out. I feel this may relate to your problem but i have no clue how do erect it. I have tried resetting the bios and cmos and I still get the error message. Any suggestions

    Look in the BIOS for an RPM threshhold setting for the CPU fan warning. My guess is that the new fan you are using has a lower RPM than the current setting in BIOS that triggers this warning.
