    Dell inspiron 660 desktop with windows 10. When booting up, get message "System Fan failure, press F1 to continue. I ran diagnostics and got the following: Chassis/motherboard fan failed to respond correctly error code 2000-0511. Ordered and installed new fan from Dell. Still getting boot up error message.

    Is the new "Chassis/motherboard fan" spinning?

    Yes. All fans are spinning.

    Then it is the detection mechanism that failed. Download CoreTemp and see if your temperatures are OK. If they are, then ignore the warning

    Thanks. Downloaded Core Temp (it's free!) and all temps look fine.
