On start-up, blue screen appears & says "cpu fan not working (blah,blah) will shut down in 15 seconds or press any key". I press "any key" and boot continues. When sign-on screen appears, you can hear a fan start. Seconds later you can't hear the fan any more but the computer works fine. Runs for hours editing pictures, music, creating, recording & editing videos - no other problems, no more messages.
After getting this message a few times, I took the PC out and removed the side panel and blew out the dust with my compressor, problem persists.
