Asus P8Z68-M Pro

RE: Asus P8Z68-M Pro
Using a 3-pin fan in a 4-pin header isn't a problem. As for the CPU_Fan error, I'm afraid that you'll be stuck with that unless you use a 4-pin fan. The error comes from your motherboard thinking that your fan is not rotating, which would cause overheating IF that was the case, which it's not. So you can basically ignore that error.

As for the "can't find any device" error, that's perfectly normal. That error comes from the ASMedia controller, which is responsible for the E-SATA port on the back of the motherboard. Seeing as you have nothing plugged into it, it is normal that it can't find anything there. So, once again, you can basically ignore that error. Alternatively, if you look into the storage/SATA section of the BIOS, you should see an option to disable that controller, which will get rid of the error and slightly speed up the boot process.

Now, to have your PC boot on its own, you can simply make it so that it ignores the CPU_fan error, that it doesn't ask you to go into the BIOS and simply boot instead.

To do that, go in the "Boot" section of the BIOS and select "Disable" for the "Wait for F1 if error" option. Save and reboot. That should fix the main issue.

RE: Asus P8Z68-M Pro
Thank you, that fixed the problem. Didn't realize the solution was so easy Sad

Also, I have a feeling that my hard drive might be failing, there are scratching noises that I didn't hear before. However, I never dropped the hard drive, never put pressure on the center of the drive, and the only thing I did do is move it from another case to this one. Is there a suggested program that I can use to thoroughly check the hard drive?

Again thanks for helping me with the start up problem!

Which brand/model of hard drive is that?

As for a program, Speedfan will do the trick. Go in the S.M.A.R.T. tab, select your HDD from the drop down menu, click on Extended Test, see if that gives you any error.

Then click on "Perform an in-depth online analysis of this hard drive" and post a screenshot of what you get.

P.S. As always, make sure to have backups of your data Wink

This is the SMART comparison after pressing Extended test.

Going by the performance %, there's clearly something wrong with your hard drive. Whether it will fail soon or not is hard to say, but I'd certainly not keep any important data on it.
