Chassis Fan Too Slow Message

Letha writes in with a hardware question

Question:
A blue screen comes up and at the bottom it says the chassis fan is too slow. Press f2 to change bios or f1 to ignore.

Answer: It sounds like your computer has built in software to monitor your fan speeds. This may indicate that one of your fans inside your computer is spinning too slow which may or may not be a problem depending on how many other fans you have and how slow its actually spinning. You don't want to overheat your computer because that will cause hardware failure. In most cases the chassis fans are easy to replace and fairly inexpensive. If its something you don't feel comfortable replacing then you may have to take it to a computer shop for repairs.
