FAQs - fans
Here you will find questions and answers to common hardware topics.
A screen comes up and it says the chassis fan is too slow. Press F2 to change BIOS or F1 to ignore.
It sounds like your computer has built in software to monitor your fan speeds. This may indicate that one of your fans inside your computer is spinning too slow which may or may not be a problem depending on how many other fans you have and how slow its actually spinning. You don't want to overheat your computer because that will cause hardware failure. You can try to go into the BIOS and see any messages or install a program like Speccy and see if it sees which fan is the problem. In most cases the chassis fans are easy to replace and fairly inexpensive. If its something you don't feel comfortable replacing then you may have to take it to a computer shop for repairs.
