If you see a CPU fan error message, press F1 to restart after turning on your computer or laptop, and you will need to press the F1 key to boot Windows (sometimes a different key is specified, and with some BIOS settings it may press the key May not work, your CPU fan may fail or speed may be too low (there may be other errors like), in the following guide I am going to explain how to find the cause of this problem and fix it.
Typically, the error text indicates that the BIOS diagnostic system has detected a problem with the CPU fan. And this is often the reason for their presence, but not always. Let’s consider all the forms one by one.
Find the cause of the CPU fan error
To get started, I suggest you change the speed of the fan (cooler) via BIOS or program settings if you feel like it. Or error may appear after unmounting computer? Is the time reset after I turn off the computer?
In the event that you have adjusted your cooler settings, I suggest you reset them to their original state or find a setting where CPU fan errors do not appear.
If your computer has a reset time, it means that your computer’s motherboard battery has died and the CMOS settings have been reset, among other things. If this happens you just need to replace the battery, see the manual for more information.
If you disconnect your computer for any reason, you may have incorrectly connected the fridge (if you disconnected it) or disconnected it completely. This is more information below.
Checking the refrigerator
If you are sure that the error is not related to any configuration (or you have to press F1 after purchasing your computer) then you should take a look inside your PC by removing one of the side panels (one on the left, see head).
You should check to see if your CPU fan is stuck in the dust, or if anything else is preventing it from rotating properly. You can turn on the computer by removing the computer icon and see if it spins. If any of them are observed, fix it and check if the CPU fan error is gone.
Unless you have ruled out the possibility of the refrigerator being connected incorrectly (for example, you have disconnected the computer or the error is always there) you should check how it is connected. A cable with three pins is usually used, which connects to the three pins on the motherboard (sometimes 4) and they are usually signed on the motherboard like a CPU fan (may have a clear overview). If you’re not wired that way, it’s worth fixing.
Note: Some system units have a fan speed adjustment or viewing function from the front panel, often requiring an “incorrect” connection to the refrigerator to work. In this case, if you need to maintain these functions, please read the system unit and motherboard documentation carefully, as an error may have occurred during the connection.
If none of those things work.
If none of the options help to fix the refrigerator error, there are several options: perhaps the sensor in the fridge has stopped working and needs to be replaced, it could even be something wrong with the computer’s motherboard.
In some BIOS variants you can manually remove error warnings and the F1 key when turning on the computer, but you should only use this option if you are absolutely sure that it will not cause overheating. Usually the option looks like “Wait for F1 if there is an error”. It is also possible to set the CPU fan speed to “Ignore” (if available).
