Fan Startup Error.

Recommended Posts

Ok so my friends computer comes up ith an error that says "Fan Failure press f2 to continue" something along those lines. I have checked all the fans and everything seems fine and plugged in correctly. So now i have no clue. Any Ideas?

I know it's a pain in the backside but try it out of the case and see if the error is still present. Are all the motherboard stand-offs in the correct place?

this is interesting to me .

Have had the same problem since I moved everything from the HP case into a Lexa S

I didn't connect any of the case fans to the motherboard at all .

Would that cause the error?

Wow how strange. The computer is an HP and he moved it into a new case (NZXT Phantom) and the only fan connected to the mobo is the cpu fan. Could it be that the rear exhaust is no longer plugged into the mobo? Would that cause this?

Yes the standoffs are in the correct place and yes it still has the error out of the case.

The fan failure error display is due to a setting in the bios which is the sys fan failure alert option. Disabling the alert or connecting all the fans from the previous case will clear all error message displays.

same here no fan error settings in my bios either

this thingy is a M2N78-LA ( violet) made by Asus I think

 

 

reasons for not connecting the rear case fan to the MO , the case comes with fan controllers , can't use them with the MO

"Fan Failure press f2 to continue" message is displayed when? POST or windows? If it is POST then the bios has the ability to determine the fan status, and probably have some type of fan rpm display.
