Is a laptop you are talking about? The message will be concerning the CPU cooler/fan.

If you can and I admit to knowing little of notebooks/laptops, change the fan but that may not cure the problem as the fault could lie elsewhere between fan and sensor.

Thank you for your reply is there a way of testing the fan out to see if powers getting to it.. or what tests can i do to find the right solution. thanks

Turn the pc on for a short while, you should see the fan rotating and hear it. If the fan works the it may be the sensor that is broken.
