If this is a Dell All-In-One

There was one issue that came out a while ago with the Dell One, where the BIOS was updated and changed the parameters for the over-temp sensing of the CPU.
While the particular parameters were not wrong, but they were slightly less tolerant, AND THAT along with the small amount of thermal grease that some of those heat sinks got, cause a lot of error reporting about the fans either not working or that the CPUs were overheating.
The cure was to crack open the case of the Dell One and apply a better amount of the heat transfer grease on the heat sink connection, or to go into the BIOS settings and just shut the darn warning off (that's not a cure, but an ignoring of the too sensitive warning).
