This is the  error message on boot after fans have been replaced (PC running cool as determined by Thermal software install):

Error message: System Fan Has Failed. Service PC to prevent damage to system. Press <F2> to continue

How can this message be removed? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

@rhr718 -- the "system" fan usually is the fan on the interior-back of the computer's case.

 

Did you replace a fan with a 4-socket power-connector by a fan with a 3-socket power-connector?

 

If you reconnect the original fan, does the error-message vanish?

 

On some computers, enter BIOS SETUP, and "disable" the motherboard's monitoring of the "system" fan.

I did replace the system fan with an exact replacement (make and model number).

Also, unfortunately, the BIOS does not have the capability of ignoring fan system speed.
