How to disable CPU fan check on Pavilion p6-2427c

HP Recommended
Pavilion P6-2427c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm getting a BIOS error that it's not detecting my CPU fan. But the fan is working. I've tried another fan that also works and I keep getting the same error. Unfortunately it appears that my BIOS doesn't have an option to ignore CPU fan messages. I updated to the latest BIOS that HP has for this PC and the option is still not there. Is there any way I can tell the BIOS to ignore this message with another option or perhaps a third party BIOS?

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


I am not aware of any way to get around this POST error message if there is no BIOS setting to disable this. Updating to a third party BIOS, if you could find one, is not recommended.


You probably have a MB sensor problem if the CPU fan is working correctly.
