Hi evetyone, 

 

I have an Hp Pavilion g6 and from two weeks ago on, while starting,  it  appears the following message: "the system has detected that a cooling fan is not operating correctly....".

 

I've already cleaned it with Air Cleaner but it didn't work...I mean, I don't hear any strange noise ever since I've used the Air Cleaner but I still see the error message...

 

Please help!

Thx in advance

These warnings usually mean the fan is not running at the correct rpm speed (too slowly) or the fan has stopped completely. If you can feel heat blowing out of the exhaust (on the side or back of the computer) then the fan may still be spinning but is not doing the correct rpms. It might be ok idling or for non hardware intensive operation but if you put the computer under a full load, it will likely overheat. Overheating hardware even 1 time can cause permanent damage. It would be my recommendation to have the fan replaced or have the computer taken apart and check for hair or debris stuck in the fan that is causing it to turn slowly or cause it to be completely stuck.


If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
