    Every time I boot up my comp I get this message "System Fan Has Failed! Press <F2> to continue". I know whats causing it, cause I don't have my exhaust fan hooked up to the mobo, it's hooked up to the psu cause it only has a psu connector Is there any way to disable that? cause it's very annoying..

    Yup. Look in the BIOS.

    I might be able to be more precise if you provided a motherboard model.

    You might find the manual for MSI's base version of that board useful in the future.

    I can't see any way to disable monitoring of the System fan either.

    However, I've got a solution for you - get a fan which has a motherboard connector.

    If there's a setting then it would be in the PC Health Status section.

    Lynx: I'm not buying another fan! btw your link doesn't work!

    VB: My mobo doesn't have a "PC Health Status section".

    Stupid HP mobos

    I reckon it's possible you could short it, with a resistor in the circuit.

    Not sure which pins go where, or what resistor you need, tho'.

    Get a potentiometer?



    Still doesn't let you know what to short, tho'.

    Shorting the pins doesn't usually work, the pins are linked to a counter which signals an alarm if it doesn't get a minimum number of inputs per second, but that may vary on some motherboards.

    Alternatively the counter may need connecting to power, again via a suitable resistor, but don't blame me if it blows your motherboard.

    Just in case it does work the pins are:
    1) Ground - Black
    2) Power - Red
    3) Counter - Yellow

    You should be able to work out which is which by looking at the CPU fan connector.
