Not all fans support monitor software, either in the bios or anywhere
else. Check to see if it has 3 wires going to it. Normal (un-monitored)
fans only have 2 wires (a positive and a negative), whereas a moniterable
fan has a third wire. Apart from that, I can't think of anything off-hand
that would cause that kind of behaviour, unless you're having power
problems - ie. spikes or brownouts. Anyway, I hope that's of help
