      You could open the case and see if the fans are indeed running. Be sure to check the fan on the CPU.

      Generally, only the CPU fan will prevent starting PC. So follow guidance in first answer.

      If fans are running, problem may be signal lead that provides fan speed information. Replace suspect fan. If you still receive message, problem is likely in motherboard circuitry.

      In that case, see if you can disable fan speed permissive in BIOS.
