I have a ECS Geforce 6100 N Motherboard with Athlon X2 3800+. One problem I am facing is with the fan speed detection. When I go into the bios and view "PC Health Status", the RPM for the system fan shows weird values and eventually freezes the bios. When I reboot and try to go into the bios, it wouldn't let me. However, when I bootup to Windows, there are no problems. Eventually, it will let me into the bios again. I also, tried using Speedfan to adjust fan speeds accordingly but it doesnt look like it works.

Question 1:
Since my CPU fan is 3 pin and my motherboard has a 4 pin connector, is there anyway I can have the motherboard adjust the fan speed (adapters, software, whatnot) without getting a new 4 pin fan?

Question 2:
Why might my system fan act up like this? I dont think I attached it wrong.

My CPU fan also has the 3-pin lead while my motherboard supports 4-pin connectors. Depending on the pin layout and the actual leads of the FAN you should be fine, but some monitoring software may be throw out of whack by it.
