So for whatever reason my pc is deciding to have an issue. Everytime on load up its shows a cpu fan error and wont let me go further, I've messed around in BIOS panel. Done about every suggestion I've found on the internet for it, cleaned the fan and unplugged the power supply a few times. Still no fix. 

 

It runs fine on start up, but then it freaks out and begins spinning like crazy before stopping. Anyone have an idea how to fix it? Computer is a year old build so I don't really remember all the details of the computer.

Power down your pc and reset your BIOS by remove the CMOS battery for at least 5 min.

The Speccy Snapshot Louis requested will show the temperatures of the CPU, motherboard, and other components.  If this is a overheating problem this will confirm it.

 

Have you inspected the CPU heatsink to see if it is full of dust?  If the CPU is full of dust it can cause a overheating condition which would cause the fan to increase its speed in order to try to cool the CPU.

 

Another possibility could be that when the computer was built there was either insufficient thermal compound used, or a poor quality compound.

That all would work, if the op could get to windows, but if I read the post right, he can't get into windows due to the error. I would swap out the fan on the heatsink, with a case fan temporarily, to see if the error goes away. If it does, then its a simple matter of finding the same size CPU fan off of newegg or another retailer and ordering it in, or even upgrading the entire CPU heatsink while your at it.

It runs fine on start up, but then it freaks out and begins spinning like crazy before stopping.

dc3 the fan runs fine on startup but then goes crazy, he's talking about the fan at startup not Windows.

What is the computer, I ask because I have seen Dell computers have fans with speed sensors that will give errors at POST.

it says shows a fan error and wont let him go any farther....thats the computer-and the starting really fast then stopping is the fan itself....least thats how I took it. Perhaps if the op would reply? maybe he fixed the problem. we can hope. :D

I just fixed a laptop having the same issue.  I disassembled the laptop and took a can of compressed air and blew all the crap out of the fan.  checked and made sure it was seated properly and not loose or moving, and made sure the fan blades would spin freely by moving them with my finger.  Finally checked to make sure the power connector for the fan was properly connected to the motherboard.  Then reassembled and started the laptop up.  Worked just fine and has every since.  Must have been dirt or debris in the fan that was keeping it from rotating properly.  Just a tip tho, I would buy at least 2-3 cans of the air because a really dirty fan can take more than 1 can to clean properly.  Its also nice to be able to have enough air to clean everything else out really well while your already inside ur pc.
