Your cooling fan is reporting as damaged you need to replace the fan unit (cooling pad as well) likely service is required and unless you want to disassemble your laptop a service center would be better suited for this job.

Fan error displace on my t42 ibm.I noticed the fan is working but the error do come once in a while thereby prevent the pc from working


If the fan is running but your notebook still overheats, your computer will turn itself off, and you need to wait until it cools down

The question is, why is it overheating? Try using a vacuum cleaner close to the ventilation slots to suck out any dust.

If this does not solve the problem, please get back to me

My ThinkPad T42 cooling fan works slow... i feel like air flow is very slow when i touch the vents... i opened the laptop and checked the fan and it was really slow.. what should i do now please help......


You should replace the fan if it is defective.

You can check inside your Bios or System Setup to see if there are any options on controlling the fan. If the laptop is not giving you any error messages or overheating the fan might be ok.

Fan Error message but the fan's working on another machine


One option would be to replace the motherboard. You can use one from T40 -T43 with your monitor. I bought one on Ebay for $90 which came with the board installed to the bottom plastic tray. I only had to install my monitor, memory, keyboard, hard drive, & plastic bezel and I had a good working unit for $90.

IBM T42 gave fan error, replaced and can not get it to reboot


make sure the fan is pluged in correctly and you didnt unplug anything else such as memory or etc or bump the cpu... did you put any thermal paste on the cpu when you put the fan on it? its needed to bond the too together to make a better cooling system there maybe a setting in your bios to disable fan monitoring or cpu temp etc have to look at your bios to see

IBM T42 gives Fan Error message and stops


The fan may be faulty or clogged with dust.
Check the fan to see f it spins freely and remove dust from the heatsink fins and fan assembly.

The specification in the manual for the T40 series shows the largest hard drive is 80 Gb.
It may be possible to install a larger hard drive, but check with Lenevo first.

Turns off autometically


How far does it get on the boot process? Does it open the operating system completely before shutting down? Do you get any error messages, and does it go to a black screen stating Windos wasn't shut down properly? Answer these and I'll have a better idea of what's going on.

VGA port problem


That could be a video card driver issue. It seems that when the projector is connected, windows detects it a create another screen using up more memory. Try download a latest video card driver for your laptop http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/license.do?filename=mobiles/1rd635ww.exe this is for Windows 200/XP for the IBM Thinkpad T42. If that doesn't work then you should also try updating your operating system. Hope that helps!
