Default Processor Fan won't work.

Okay, so on my computer my process fan just stopped working, and it doesn't look burnt or anything, and I've tried other fans and all of them don't work, can any of you give me some tips on maybe why it didn't? I've already touched the 110 celsius processor and it hurts. So I need help, I'm new.

If your CPU hit 110C, I'm not sure anything would work.

You need to turn that PC off right away or you're going to have a dead CPU on your hands. I would use like a current meter to measure if there's any juice coming from the pins where your CPU fan is plugged into. Double check the connections and make sure that it hasn't come loose yet.

How old is that fan/CPU anyways? It may simply be time to buy a new fan for it or a new CPU cooler.

But better not boot it when the fan ain't working since u might have a dead cpu in ur hands pretty quick if u do.

Ah, back again. And it still doesn't work.

I've figured out that it isn't the fan. I'm thinking that when I upgraded Windows BIOS forgot about the motherboard power pins. Could that be it?
