    I am getting a CPU Fan has failed, press F2 to continue everytime I boot up my pc, but am unable to go any further. pressing F2 doesn't allow me to go any further. I'm trying to get into the Bios so I can hopefully turn this error message off. I have no clue why it is giving me this error, as all my fans are working. Can anyone please help?

    You need to post more info; what is the make and model of the computer you have? If its a custom system post the motherboard model, the power supply model, the CPU and the heatsink model, and post all the rest of the specs too.

    Is the CPU fan spinning fast or slowly, does it have a wobble? Is the fan connected to the right CPU fan header or some other header?

    Also, did this just happen out of the blue or is this a new build or was someone inside the computer doing upgrades or cleaning it?
