    Hello everyone. The problem is with my CPU fan/motherboard. For some reason my computer doesn't detect my CPU fan. The CPU fan runs but when I start up my computer I have to press F1 everytime to bypass the system error. I hope nothing serious is wrong and it's just a mis-communication with my CPU fan and motherboard bios. I recently just installed a new CPU fan from Zalman CPNS9500A. What should I try to do to correct this issue?

    have u made sure that it is properly mounted?
    or maybe the problem is due to it being an aftermarket fan?
    not sure but its probably mounted and cooling correctly if your cpu isn't overheating

    You propably can't do anything to stop it from whining about the CPU fan speed, because the connection (3/4-pin small fan power?) doesn't inform your motherboard about the fan speed. You can, however propably stop it from requiring the press of F1 at boot from BIOS.

    How do I stop my computer from whining about it? My cpu has beening running games for months now with no problem (except for one blue screen that had to do with the memory not being equal or less which just happened now lol). Also, the fan has an external mount for the CPU fan controller and i connected that to it. I disconnected it last week to see if it corrects the problem but it didn't do anything.

    I really can't tell you that, because every BIOS is a little different... Explore the BIOS a little. There could be an option to stop monitoring your CPU fan speed (I doubt it), and there should be an option to stop it from asking the pressing of F1, if an error occurs.
