Error CPU fan has failed

HP Recommended
Hp pavilion
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good afternoon, I've been having a problem with my laptop for a while. On start up it comes up with 'error CPU failed'. I usually press f2 and by pass it. But today I missed it and it shut down and I cant get it to reboot. 

 

It takes me through the restore process but cant complete it. I have been into the bios but there is no advance section for the CPU fan. I have tried f2 as well on start. 

 

Is my laptop gone for good? Is my hard drive a goner? Can I get it to reboot another way?

LAPTOPS ALL:

  • does PC run with no huge battery connected, run on AC power only even for ever???? batteries do short out and make any PC go dead or wonkey.
  • is the RTC coin cell battery still good,  we alway check this at 5 years old or older. below 2.9vdc is fail.
  • are the F12 Diagnostics dead?
  • a fan or fan radiator packed in lint will overheat fast we clean them all, never skipped, once dirty.
  • run the F12 Diag  it will in fact tell you if the HDD is bad,  for sure, smart test fails it is a bad hDD.
NO warranty answers by me.
