delirium pissed off

Dear LJ Oracle,

My computer appears to be SNAFU. It was making odd noises last night, so I turned it off. Today, when I try to turn it on, I receive the following message during POST:

Warning: Your Computer CHIP Fan Fail or speed too low.

(And then something about disabling this message in setup, which I was too lazy to copy down)

What does this mean? Or rather, I know what it means; how serious is it? Is this an "act now before your computer turns into molten metal" sort of thing, or an "are you sure, sir? it would mean chaning the bulb" sort of thing? In the case of the former, what sort of thing do I need to be doing?

Love,
Me.

Supposedly the correct solution is to get a can of compressed air and blow junk out, rather than use a vacuum cleaner. I wouldn't want to take a vacuum cleaner near my computer's innards because of jumper heads...
