I recently added a case fan to my system (not PWM), decided it was too loud and then removed it. Well now the BIOS throws an error everytime I boot that that fan is not operating. ("You don't say") I've poked all through the bios and can't find how to tell it I know about the fan and not to alert me every time. Thanks for the help.

Update. I switched one of the OEM case fans to the connection being reported as faulty and it just runs at full blast, and as expected the connection I moved it from becomes the one throwing the error. How can I just manually configure the fans?
<SOLVED> I did some more googling and found some suggestions to reset the BIOS to default by pressing F9 and the saving the changes. Not a huge deal for me since all I had done in the past was enable virtualization. That seems to have cleared the error code (sorta feels like I'm working on my car now clearing the CEL). Here's some of the technical junk for reference: Model Y700-34ISH, BIOS date 11/10/2015, and error code "0135: AUX1 Fan 1 failure"
