I put together a PC the other day for my girlfriend. it's an msi nforce with 256 ddr and Athlon XP 1800+. I put a thermal take volcano on it to keep it really cool. now randomly when we boot the pc, at bios start up screen, we get a warning message that the cpu fan has stopped. press F1 for help. I shut down the thing immediately, opened the case and checked the fan , cables etc. rebooted and the warning message was gone. after a few reboots more the message was back. so i decided to leave the case open to check the fan, the next time it happened the fan was working fine at full speed. I have noticed that when this happens the USB keyboard does not load. so i have to use a usb to ps2 converter to make it work. i have decided that it's time to move on and I'm now planning to send my girlfriend on "permanent vacation", so I need help fast. I don't want more calls from her wanting me to fix her PC and who knows what else if I'm dating another chick.
