How do I solve a CPU fan error?

Specs: Windows 7, Intel® Core™ i7-950 3.06 GHz 8M Intel Smart Cache LGA1366

I just recently got a computer in October from Cyberpower PC.
The model is a Gamer Xtreme XT.
Just today I noticed one of my video games running exceptionally slow. I decided to reboot my computer to see if that would help.
To my surprise when the computer started back up an error appeared saying:
"CPU Fan Error.
Press F1 to continue." or something along those lines.
I went into the BIOS setup and noticed my CPU was running at a jaw-dropping 84 degrees Celsius. Also, I saw that next to the CPU Fan Speed, it read "N/A"
Please tell me how I can fix this. I'm looking for a solution that doesn't require me to take it into a store/buy a new product. This is because I'm still a teenager and I don't want to have to bring my dad into this.
Any help will be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Contact CyberPower PC, it's still under warranty, isn't it?

Did you check to make sure the cooling fan didn't come unplugged?

I sent them an email and I'm still waiting for a reply. And yes, it's still under warranty.
Considering this is the first time this has happened and the temperature has been stable since day 1, I presume it didn't come unplugged.
I'm not all too familiar with how I would go about checking that, however.

If you can't do something as simple as checking a fan connection, I suggest you let CyberPower PC handle it.

hello i seen this error in post before and it was the cpu fan got mistakingly plugged into one of the case fan pins,that would explain the n/a you seen in the bios by cpu fan.but not the heat,i think the cpu fan would run at 100% all the time plugged to the case.something to look at ,but probably best to take it back so the cpu dont sustain damage
