a friend gave me a unit which was overheating due to (I think) a faulty cpu fan, which I replaced with a new unit, now when I try to boot up the unit it gives 1 long beeb and then a continuous beeb with the message cpu fan is not connected. Please HELP

Find out which motherboard is installed, click here will help with that bit. Then download the motherboard's manual from the manufacturer's website and check that you're connecting the fan to the correct place on the motherboard. If you are connecting to the correct place, you might have a faulty connection on the motherboard.

When next you boot-up, press the F8 key and choose LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION....TT

The fact that the old fan didn't give this message makes me think it's likely to be a hardware not a software issue. Have you tried the obvious and checked that the new fan is plugged in firmly and is working. I recently changed the fan on mine and because of difficult access to the power supply socket hadn't pushed the connector all the way, I was rather surprised when a previously healthy PC not only wouldn't boot but started playing peculiar music.

I found the problen in the bios settings, I have now defeated the check on the fan and everything seems to be working fine, Thanks

i had the same problem. find which of the terminals is no.1 that u plug the heatsink fan into. this cured mine as no.1 is the one that reads the fan speed.
