I have a Dell Dimension 8250, P4 3.06GHz, with a Phoenix BIOS, version A04. I replaced the stock CPU fan with a Zalman fan to get rid of the terrible noise. It worked, but the computer boots with a "Previous CPU fan failure" error message about every third time I start it up. I have to keep clearing the event log. Zalman recommends either disabling the CPU fan detection or reducing it to below 1300 RPMs. Unfortunately, my Startup BIOS menu does not include any CPU fan setting options. Is there anything I can do about this problem?
