Your system fan has died and need to be replaced. You can look in your bios for a setting to ignore fan speeds, you may or may not have one depending on your bios. But be careful, if you can bypass the fan error, you risk causing harm to your computer by overheating the processer.

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 IBM X 61 says fan error at bot up then freezes up


I would say there's an error with your fan. Running a computer without a fan is a very bad idea, so your computer probably shuts down to protect its self. Any problem with the fan is probably mechanical, so it would need to be fixed or replaced before you can use your pc.

Can you hear the fan running when you start up your computer? Does it make any unusual noises (clicking, grinding..)?

Shuts down on its own......hot air comes out of


This sounds like an overheating problem. Make sure your vents are free of dust & that the fan is spinning. If they are & it is then you might want to either consider upgrading the cpu fan or purchasing a laptop cooling pad to sit it on while working. Hope this helps.

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.

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
