Did you use heat sink silicon, and make sure the bios settings are set to control the fan speed. you may want to get another spu and try that also..

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.

My Thinkpad G41 does not boot up, nothing comes up


Hello

Have you tried swapping out ram modules? This would probably be the cheapest. And, a faulty ram module gives a beep code. Try it, and let me know.

Kind regards

I have 2 ibm thinkpad R50p. one is constantly shutting down and the other one turns the radio off all the time and I can not get on the internet remotely


the one constantly shutting down may have heat issues. check that the fan and heatsink are not clogged.
the one messing with your radio all the time must be having a wireless RF interference problem or something. Try turning the wifi off and plugging it in with a CAT5 cord.

THINKPAD G41 Fan Error


Hi

Thank you for your query

You are right when the laptop first starts up it is the fan, if you are getting error message then it is the heat sink (fan on top of cpu) that will need to be replaced.

I would only recommend changing it if you know how as getting to the motherboard is quite tricky to say the least

Please dont listen to the geeks at bestbuy, they obviously dont know what they are talking about

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank you again

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?

Laptop Fan?


Before getting the fan replaced you may want to try to blow the fan with an air compressed duster. Worked for me. You do not need to take the laptop apart completely. There are 4 screws that holds the keyboard in place, unscrew the 4 and you should be able to pop the keyboard out. Once the keyboard is off you should be able to clean the fan.

A21m keeps shutting down


Have you checked the ventilation area of the processor if it is blocked by dirt? It causes heat to processor, when it reaches a certain hot temperature, it automatically turns off to avoid further damage. Have it opened and be cleaned by a computer tech
