The CPU fan is faulty and the CPU goes into thermal shutdown.
Replace the faulty fan to fix the problem.

SOURCE: Fan Error

You may have a faulty fan, check to fan, it should spin freely, if not the fan needs to be replaced. The fan and heatsink assenble may also be clogged with dust, remove the dust and vacuum to clean.

SOURCE: t30 fan error

Hi,

Well, the fan is either unplugged from it's socket, froze up, or completely clogged with dust, etc and is giving the bios reason to shut down.

Also tho, tell me, does the time and date keep needing to be reset?

Could be a cmos battery. Some of the older thinkpads were like that, although my T30 has never shown this problem.

Good luck

SOURCE: fan error problem

Sounds like the mother board thinks the processor fan isn't running at all, or not fast enough. Can you verify that the fan is running, by sound and the movement of air through the vents? If no fan/air movement then you should address that fan problem that your thinkpad has developed.
In case it's the fan and you decide to crack it open yourself? Let us know?

My laptop just shutdown and after that wont start. The led is blinking and that is all. I guess the graphic card is down because is to hot to touch even. Anyone knows something about this ?


If it is very hot this is probably a Fan error and your laptop keeps overheating and shutting down. If it still wont shut down after you wait, than your computer could just be friend. Very rarely happens but it has happend to me on a HP Pavillion dv7000

Your processor fan is most likely failing. Try cracking it open and cleaning the fan with canned air. Also, reseat the fan's connector cable.

Computer won't start


When the screen is black, try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del; a soft reset should kick it back into gear. Did the laptop shut down unexpectedly due to power loss/overheating/etc..?

Stop: oxooooc1f5


The error "Stop: oxooooc15" is usually caused by the new vista SP1.

Try the following
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Restore you laptop to before you had the problem or error.

Wont start up


Hello rfb640,

This is Romeet, i would like to help you with this problem. Please go into the BIOS and check if the hard disk is detected? if it is then remove the hard disk from the laptop and turn on, check if you get any error message for " disk boot failure" or something of that effect or you continue recieving the white cursor?
