    I got this message on one of my client computers when I turn it on
    After checking, CPU fan is working OK but I don't know why CPU temperature still high. I got this information from BIOS setup:
    would changing CPU fan solve the problem?

    Could be a number of things. First thing would be to make sure the CPU fan isn't clogged up and to clean out the heat sync of dust and rubbish. Then try again.

    After that you will be looking at replacing the CPU fan.

    I already cleaned the heatsink and the fan and according to BIOS information it's working fine (2057 RPM is not a bad speed for CPU fan). I guess it maybe the thermal paste. I'll try to clean it and put a new one.
