"CPUFAN does not function properly!!"

I recently brought a new CPU fan (A 'Speeze CPU Raptor Cool 1' to be specific), because the old one is as noisy as a tank. Ive checked its compatability with my AMD chip and it is fully supported, no doubt. Ive now attempted to install the fan 3 times, and it still wont work "properly". Once ive put the new fan in place and turn on my computer it starts bleeping and gives me the error message "CPUFAN does not function properly!!" and then shuts down my computer. The fan is actually spinning. Does anybody have any suggestions to solve the problem? OR is this just a faulty fan which needs replacing? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx

Make sure motherboard's jumpers for the CPU's External Frequency, CPU's Frequency Ratio and CPU's Voltage (if applicable) are set correctly.
