Default Error: System Fan Has Failed

I was replacing my case in preparation for some future upgrades, and when i got everything put in to the motherboard and PS, I plugged it in and turned it on. It immediately came up with the following error

ERROR: System Fan Has Failed
Service PC to prevent damage to the system
Press to continue

When I press f2 i get
error: no such device: 533924c6-a999-4082-89b0-2ffe46fc16fd.
grub rescue>

My new case:
Antec Sonata III 500

I run windows 7, and was using
IPIBL-LB motherboard
rocketfish 700w power supply
nvidea 250gts graphics card

Thanks in advance, I'll need all the help I can get.

My System Specs

Default

Go into the BIOS and disable Fan monitoring - or find the System Fan header (3 pin) and connect a fan to it.
That should do it.

or there could also be a place for 'halt on all errors',just chose 'none'.

Thanks, My main problem was that it was booting off of my alternate hard drive that had half a linux boot drive on it, but I couldn't fix it because the fan error was blocking my access to the bios/boot order menus. I plugged in my old fan, reset the boot order, but I still cannot find any way to shut off the fan notice. The bios doesn't have very much in it, and I haven't seen either of those options. Now that I have full access to my computer, is there another way of shutting off the fan check?

I just formatted a buddies PC, Box store Mobo, And it gets the same error.

The bios has nothing to turn fan monitoring off, Nothing for errors.

The mobo has 2 3 pin connectors, Both have 3 pin fans on them.

I think its a Bios error, Or the Mobo is on its way out.

Default Error System Fan Has Failed

I replaced the motherboard in a HP Pavilion a6403w Desktop Computer. After replacing the motherboard I started getting the Message: Error System Fan Has Failed, Service PC to Prevent damage to the system, Press F2 to Continue. There was nothing wrong with the Fan that was was keeping the CPU Chip cool. What I discovered is that HP did not add enough cooling fans to this model. I simply added a fan to the Tower that brings cool air into the tower and the message went away. The system boots every time without giving me the error message.
