I don't believe it will because the heat sink and CPU screws won't line up and the CPU is smaller but i'm not for sure.The board architecture is the same but the form factor i believe is different.I'm sorry but i can't say for sure and i don't want to lead you to a bad conclusion.
It is normal for the laptop's fan to make noise. Sometimes, the noise will not be as bad. The noise actually depends on how hot your laptop is. The hotter the laptop becomes, the louder the fan noise. Your laptop will produce heat depending on the load of the laptop's processor. So if you are multitasking on your laptop, expect the fan to spin faster because it will try to eliminate the extra heat being generated.
I just have a quick tip for you, never use your laptop on top of a bed or any soft surface because the vents under the laptop will not work properly.
I hope this helps. Thanks and good day. HotRatchet
T61 usually has a 3 year global warranty, if you had the hard disk replace from the Lenovo service center itself they are supposed to be giving the operating system along with the Hard disk.
1. do you get any display on the screen thinkpad logo? if yes your Hard disk and other hardware devices are functioning properly.all you need to do is reload the linux again. if you are not getting any display, you have a memory (RAM) or a hard disk problem. which needs a replacement
You can try to clean the cooling vents using a can of compressed air or
a vacuum cleaner (make sure to turn off the system and disconnect
battery and charger before you try this). If the processor heatsink/fan assembly is clogged with dusts, it can cause this problem.
You need to make sure that the processor heatsink/ fan assembly is clean of any dusts.
The following link will give some idea about how to clean the heat sink
There are so many answers to this it would take a month to type them all. 1. Make sure you have sometype of connection to the laptop either Phone line or network cable or wireless signal. 2. Based on the connection available make sure you have the correct software for the connection installed. 3. If you have a network connection ensure you have setup a network connection on the laptop. If you are using the modem make sure you have the proper dial-up software installed and setup. 4. If you have no idea what I am talking about with any of this, I recommend you go to Best Buy or any other computer tech shop and ask them to set the connection up for you in order to make sure it is done correctly.
