DL360 G3 - error 1611 CPU fan failure

I've got a (out of warranty) Proliant DL360 G3 here, which refuses to boot.

A fan of the CPU assembly makes a funny noise, and I can see it rotating slower than the other 3 fans.

When booting the system stops at the error:
"1611 CPU Zone fan assembly failure detected".

I can't get in the BIOS (F9) either.

This system is out of warranty, and I have no idea how much a fan (or a fan assembly) costs.

Is there a workaround for this?

Not that I'm aware of. You really don't want to run a system with the CPU fan malfunctioning in any case, so you would be best off to replace the fan itself.

This should not be a huge problem. I would guess, with some poking around, that you could locate a replacement for minimal $$.

If you lack the tools and/or skills to simply get a generic fan, and substitute it in for the bad one, there is a fellow on Ebay who (as of just a few minutes ago) has a complete DL360 G3 CPU fan assembly available for about $50 shipped. Here's the link.

Happy tweaking.
