PC Fan Failure

First off, apologies if this is posted in the wrong spot.

Anyway, I recently bought an Antec 900 case so I was putting my stuff inside it. IT takes a while, but I get everything in...so I go to start up my computer and I get the error "PC Fan failure; Press F2 to continue...blah blah blah."

I check the fan though....and it's working fine; the fan is spinning and whatnot.

So we're at a loss. We tried unplugging and plugging it back in; nothing. We used compressed air to clean it out; Nothing.

So we were thinking it might be the thermal compound, so I'm gonna go down to the store and pick some up tomorrow.

Does anyone else have any thoughts/suggestions?

I hate computers :( haha

  1. If you can see the fan is spinning and you are happy with it's speed then disable the fan warning in BIOS.
  2. Yeah...but i don't want my processor shitting out on me.

    So any other speculations on what to do?
  3. Turn it off and stay well away from it?, if the fan is a 3 pin and the header is a four pin then you will sometimes get an error as the BIOS does not see anything on the control pin.
