XP Pro SP3 - Intel Core 2 Duo. How do I stop the centre with its annoying alarm on boot up?

the fan must be too slow

Wouldn't you just know it, I've shut down and restarted twice and the alarm is not coming up. Opening the Centre the Temperature is shown as 26 degrees C. What do you reckon the fan speed should be?

the fan on my dual core 8400 is running at 1454 temp 17, but I am using a freezer extreme, your temp is about right. speedfan you [can download it] will tell you the speed of your cpu fan.

Booted up again, alarm sounded with dual core centre open, motherboard fan speed: CPU 979 RPM (red flashing!), System 1: 2512 RPM.

What or where is the speedfan you refer to?

Resolved. Went into H/W Monitor in Bios, CPU Min Fan speed was set at 62.5%, reset to 75% with no resultant alarm sounding.
