Power on Self Test has detected a CPU fan fault. Sometimes a CPU fan will fail


To solve that problem 


1. Re seat the 3 pin connector on the main board very carefully unplug the fan and replug the connector make sure it is secured 


2. Replace the CPU Cooler 


Does the CPU fan run normally because that error starts up when its starting to fail or failed.
