CPU Fan not working!!

I turn my PC sometimes and get a 'Warning CPU Fan not working' message. If I ignor it and go into Bios it states the fan IS working. I'm thinking it could be either a new fan needed or new Mobo. Any clues?

Take case side off and have a look as it boots up.

do not run the PC for more than a few seconds if fan is not turning check and clean make sure not being fouled by ide or other cables

Do as Rayuk and Fruitbat /\0/\ say and then if you still have any reason to doubt the fan is ok replace it as soon as possible.

the sides off and the fan is spinning. I'm thinking the Mobo is not sensing it correctly. I feel an upgrade coming on, get prepared to offer New mobo advice soon.
