Evening all, Sometimes when i start up my computer i get a error message saying CPU Fan Error! press F1 for setup.
After pressing F1 it takes me to the bios screen where everything seems fine to me, CPU temps are fine fan speed runs between 700rpm - 1000rpm, Anyone know what the problem is? it doesn't come up all the time just every now and again, and it boots just fine to windows from the bios screen. Here is pics of the message and the bios screen:

You can set the minimum required cpu fan speed somewhere in bios. Reduce that to 500 rpm and see if the error message comes up again.

Try clearing the BIOS

take the battery out for a couple of minutes , or the board might have a jumper or even a button
