HP 510-p310 fan starts and stops all day long.

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Desktop 510-p310
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HP 510-p310 fan starts and stops all day long.  The fand runs for about 10 seconds and then winds down to nothing. Upon start up a blue message box states that there is a problem with the cooling system and shuts down the  computer unless I press enter. Is this just a matter of replacing the fan or there other issues that could be causing this?

that is it's JOB 1.

to keep PC cool and extend life of PC. (and your PC is overheating,  the CPU shut you down at 90C up,as all do like that.

let it. or clean all lint out  of PC and all vents and all fans, that is called normal service.

that error means PC need be cleaned.

why blame bad fan on lint.?  

I clean my desktop every year with lint inside, we get ride of rugs here , HW floors now, and every 2 years now.

lint is not good for cooling. any PC, we simple clean it and blow it out, I have shop air but walmart CAN-O -AIR works..

step one is inspections not guessing.

why guess, look first,

all vents

all fans mine has 4 fans. (1 in PSU)

all heat sinks clean fins.

on laptop top 10x more hard, even 35secrews out hard, my desktop is 2 screws my Z600 is zero. screws out.

or ask any shop for PCs to fix your overheating PC.

NO warranty answers by me.

it is clean, it is not lint, can anyone advise me on whether a fan should stop and start all day long.  As I recall from all my other computers the fan just ran the whole time it was on.
