For a while now my backup computer (Dell Dimension 4500, Pentium 4) has been starting up with error Processor fan not detected. I left the machine on overnight as usual, and today its not working. It was not on when I woke, and the power button does not work to start the system.
I heard that Pentium 4 processors will shut down before it over heats. So, I need to figure out if this system is scap metal or if I can somehow bring it back online. I only need this system to operate for a couple weeks more before i plan to replace it. But i do need it working untill then. Is there anything I can do? Thanks
