So I opened my computer up today to put in a Zip 100 MB drive (yeah, throwback from yesteryears, but I love 'em so). When I booted the machine, BIOS spits warning, "chip fan not working or speed to low". WTF !!! I swear I'm no butterfingers. I was very careful putting in the Zip drive. I didn't even know what chip fan was until I googled and saw a picture of motherboard with circle drawn around the chip fan. Sure enough, it's not working. With the computer open, I turned the power on. The fan moved slowly for a couple of rotations and then stopped. Then I googled for how to replace chip fan on Asus A8N SLI Deluxe. Let's just say I'm in no mood to try. Now I'm not seeing anything untoward happening. My computer seems to be working just fine. No overheating or anything. However, I do wonder if my first video card dying had anything to do with this. If so, my new video card is going to die too :-( So is there any program I can use to monitor temperature of various parts of my motherboard? Right now I'm using Moo0 System Monitor which is free. It only gives me CPU and Hard Disk temperature that have not gone over 30 degrees C ever. For the life of me I still don't know what the "chip" fan does. It's not the CPU fan. It's this itsy bitsy little more than an 1 inch in diameter fine that sits a couple of inches from the edge of my Graphics card. Googling told me this is a common problem with my motherboard. Anyone in my predicament and if so what did you do? Thanks much.
