Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook
Recently, my house was blacked out while my T23 was plugged in straight to the power socket (not using battery).
Then, when the electricity came back, I turned on my laptop again and it prompted "Fan Error". and won't boot to Windows. I'm using Windows XP.
Anyways, I tried to boot several times and it's when i pushed the "ThinkPad" button on the keyboard, when the laptop booted to Windows as usual. But, now I realize that the fan is still not working as there's no sound of it spinning whatsoever.
What should I do now? I don't have the manual or setup cd for the laptop.
How can I diagnose whether the fan is still can work or not?
This is a commin IBM issue fans going Bad ... to try and free it if it's just dust you can actually blow into the vent with compressed air and free up the Fan ... The IBM T series all check fan before powering up.
The replacement is not too difficult to do.
The safest air is the can type to blow in there.

Probably the fan might be shorted out....or there might be somthing jamming the fan try blowing into the fan vent....if the problem persists try getting an usb fan system

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.
