What causes a thermal sensing erro on ibm t43

A Thermal error on the T43 usually indicates a problem with overheating. This can be caused by many reasons:
1. Dirt build up on fan or fan louvres causing fan to turn slowly and not being able to cool the system properly.
2. Blocking of air inlets to the laptop. Do not use on your lap, or on soft surfaces such as blankets, bedsheets, etc.

If you feel a lot of heat from the air out of the laptop, then the system is over heating.

You can run fan diagnostics as follows:
1. Turn on the computer and check the air turbulence at the louver near the PC Card slot.
2. Run Diagnostics --> ThinkPad Devices
--> Fan.

Here is the T43 maintenance manual to see how to check and or replace the fan.

Keyboard not working

For a cheap solution, have you tried plugging in a regular keyboard?

Likely, the real problem is a loose ribbon cable under the keyboard. It is a bit messy to open open a laptop. So, if you can get by with an external keyboard, it might be the best solution.

It has been a while since I opened an IBM/Lenovo. Some laptops are easier than others to replace the keyboard.
