How to get rid of a hardware error message?


every time that I start the computer, I get the following message " Alert, Previous fan failure", press F1 to continue of F2 to Setup. I recently replaced the fan on the CPU, how do I get rid of this message?

If it comes on the screen before Windows starts loading, you should check the BIOS Setup for an entry about resetting the alarm.
