Red face Computer Temperature Too High

Hi:
When I put 'HDD' diagnoses, it says, .... 'Temperature' is "too" high, 41 degree C.
and 'warning' box popping up in the middle of the screen, ...
"not critical, but need to pay close attention'

What does it mean?
One of fans in the computer started to malfunction?

For this prevention, what measures should I take NOT to fly 'motherboard?'

Thanks for your help/input in advance.

definately clean out the dust inside the case, but I don't really think 41c is anything to worry about.

Red face Thanks for response, ... one thing to consider is,

Hi:
Thanks for responses.

As to 'dust,' I did clean inside about two weeks ago.

I'm guessing or suspecting that one of fans inside the computer going or
already got bad, since there is NO conspicuous noise coming from the front
panel of the computer.

However, one thing about which I concern is that this computer went some
'rough' time to get back to 'life,' then I hate to fumble through inside the
computer.

Just leave it as is?
That's the safest way?
Because, I love this computer, even through it's a kind old, but I put a lot
of installation/programs for past two years.

it's easy to check the fans. cpu fan is exposed, sits on the motherboard. cheap to replace. power supply in back of unit, no need to open up the box. likely they are the only two you have
