Formatting problem // error

  1. Well, early this morning i turned on my monitor and it was at the bootup screen and it said cpu fan error. So i restarted and when windows was loading it crashed and shutdown, it kept doing this in all modes. So I decided to format. I poped the windows XP disk in and followed the setup, now my memory of formatting is not what it use to be, so i selected delete partition ( partition C)

    Well , before i deleted the partition it said C: partition1[unknown] 114463 <47374 free>

    After i deleted the partition it said C: partition1[unkown] 114463 < 114463 free>

    (Now i know i was supposed to select set up windows on partition, then it asked me to format.)

    So after that happend, i selected set up windows on partition and formatted (normal format, not quick). But at around 75% it stopped and said there was an error and press any key to continue, so i did that and it told me CPU fan error again.

    Im stumped on what to do now, i was thinking of creating a new partition and installing windows XP there but i really dont know what i should do.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks.

    First did you check to make sure you Fans are operating normally before you burn up your CPU/Mb?
