On most computers you can turn off error messages like this in the BIOS.

With many OEM boards fan errors can't be disabled. In order to get rid of the error you'd need to plug a compatible fan into the chassis fan port. Nobus it's an HP D530

Have you updated the BIOS.  Here's the link to do it;

1) Download the .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.
2) Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions

In your BIOS look though the pages for something that says "Halt on..."  It's probably set to Halt on all but keyboard. Change this to say Halt on no errors.  This should by pass the screen asking you to push F1 to Boot.

Post Mode contains (QuickBoot,FullBoot,FullBoot every 1 day,FullBoot every 2 day, ... ,FullBoot every 30 day .
and none of them can solve the problem ,it is about checking the RAM.
Post message contains two choices (Enable,Desable) I try them and nothing happened .
I forget mention some items in Advanced minue :-
3- Advanced
      3-7  unique sleep state Blink Rates
      3-8  AGP Adapture size
      3-9 Monitor Tracking
      3-10 NIC PXE option ROM download

You're right there's no setting to turn off the halt error in the BIOS.  This must be an older machine.  

My only other thought is if you used a splitter to connect both the fans?  Then you would have the one that worked and the one that kept the error message from popping up.  If that's not an option then I think we're out of choices.

thank u Tenaj
u do very well and I appriciate ur help
but I fixed another fan and connected it to the motherbord but the fan usually have three wires two for electricity and the third for sencer which make it stop when the wether is not hot so only when I run the computer in mid day and it was hot and room was closed the two fans ware run and no error message but in all day one of them will stop and F1 message appear .
I try to to cut the third wire , the fan continue running regardless of the wether but the message appear again (F1 Boot) .
I know it is strange case but when I search on the internet I found that happening to most of HP motherboard .
I will never giveup .
You r kind and helpfull and ammazing man .Thank u for every thing
