Hi aksed6000


You are running Windows XP?


Your PC must be quite a few years old.


I would think the problem is in the BIOS if all fans are running.


Try removing and replacing the MB CR 2032 battery to reset CMOS.


It may be time to buy a new HP PC if this suggestion does not fix this problem.


You could try replacing the CPU fan but this looks like the MB is slowly dying or the MB battery is running out of juice.
