Hey anyone who can help,
I recently put together my first computer mostly on my own (A tech-savvy friend came over to make sure everything was plugged in right). Every time I boot up the computer, I see the error message "CPU Fan Error", but when I look at the fan, it's most definitely spinning away. Certain programs (mostly large games like Diablo 3 and Dragon Age) will crash the program shortly after starting up, if not crashing the entire computer, and many smaller programs will freeze or close on their own, which I have been told may be a sign of overheating. I've tried restarting the computer a number of times, uninstalling the games, plugging the fan into different ports on the motherboard (in case I had it wrong), and even bought a new fan, and I still keep getting this message. I've had this new computer for around a week now and it has been nothing but trouble. All I want is for it to work.
Can someone please help me?
