It might be a motherboard problem. The circuit to the speed detector line in one of the fan connectors could be open, and the bios is unable to detect that the fan is turning.

The fan connectors have three pins, one to supply 12 volts to the fan, one for ground (earth) and the third connector is to sense the speed.
