So my parents PC just got this error. CPU fan has failed system will shutdown immediatly. I opened it up to check for any loose wiring but all is good.

Could it be the fan has just burnt out???

Is their computer a HP.

This means your system can't find the CPU fan and it won't let you boot until it detects the fan, check if its spinning and try another fan (like the case fan) on the CPU_FAN header and see if it boots.

EDIT: Used the wrong their.
