Something may be wrong. There is a fan that cools the processor, and the error you're getting is that fan isn't working.
You could cause major damage to the PC if you run it in that condition, or it will eventually shut down by itself and give you a thermal shutdown error.
It could be that the fan quit working or the wire that connects the fan to the motherboard came off for some reason.
