    Hello all.
    I think this goes in this forum if not I apologize. So my cpu fan died and I replaced it. My MB is not recognizing that I made this change. I have to spam F2 to boot from windows otherwise my computer shuts down as it still thinks my fan is dead. Yes the fan is installed properly and does work)

    I have gone into BIOS and saved changes and while I can restart without an issue, when I power down completely and start back up.. I get the CPU has failed message .

    I really need to reinstall my OS( win 7) as its been a year since last install. I am afraid to do so as I won't have a windows option in boot manager if I am reinstalling yes?

    I hope I am making sense as to what my issue is)

    my comp is a HPE-210y

    Thank you for your time and I appreciate any help I will receive.

    Ira

    Did you buy an identical HP fan? If not you likely have too. Some systems like this expect the fan to spin at very precious speeds and if the replacement fan spins too slow or fast the system may not think it's working properly.

    Why do need to reinstall Windows? Although to reinstall Windows you can use the built-in HP Recovery, see here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c01867418

    Thank you for your response! No I didnt get the fan from HP, went down to Frys( CA) and found one for my MB.

    As far as reinstalling, I do it once a year as maintenance. I play quite a few games and download stuffs). Right now having a slew of errors.

    But back to my original question trying to convince my MB that I do indeed have a working fan..I suppose I can call HP and see if they will help or guide me to their specific fan

    Thanks again!

    If I may say so...sometimes buying those OEM parts from HP/Dell they charge a lot. If you go to amazon.com or ebay.com and see if you can find one that MATCHES your part number on your old fan. It will most likely be a lot cheaper.
