Alert. Previous Fan Failure

By 777driver
Jan 12, 2010
  1. Just set up a refurbished Dell Optiplex GX280. I received the Alert! Previous Fan Failure message once.

    Please allow me a stupid question, because I'm not a computer tech...

    On the BIOS Event Log, there is the one entry for the CPU Fan "Out of Range"

    I can still hear the fan running, and I've restarted the computer a few times since and NOT got the message. So do I still have a fan problem?
