Cooling fan to CPU are come along with the CPU. You can use any other fan, having speed regulator pin, ie, the connector wire to it will have three conductors. Keep a close look at the size and seating screws to its body to the heat-sink of the CPU. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
This might have to do with how the fan is being connected for power...if it is not connected to the motherboard and you are using some sort of controller....then you have to go into the BIOS (Setup) settings and tell it to stop monitoring the fan in question. All this is assuming that the fan in question is working!
This message means that the fan on your CPU (processor) is failing or has failed. This is not good because if the fan on the CPU fails your CPU will overheat and cause your machine to lock up and become non-functional till it cools down and then the same cycle will repeat till the fan is replaced.
A common problem with all laptop is dust. Sounds like you have 5 years worth of dust stuck in there. You should get a can of compressed air and blow though every vent you can! You want to loosen the dust that's in there and possibly try to blow it out and/or get it closest to the vents.
After that you should take a vaacum cleaner and **** out all the dust you can!
Dust inhibits air flow, alot! Its the number 1 killer of old computers.
You mite not want to reset this. This could be telling you that your fan is faulty/Dieing. If so then if it doesn't turn off your comp, your CPU will fry from the heat. Try replaceing your CPU fan within your computer. "Cool Master" is a good brand. you can find them at any Fry's Electronics Store.
First, download PC Wizard 2008 so you can check the fan speeds and temp of your CPU (and every other component of your PC if need be) and see if it's operating properly. You can find it here: http://pc-wizard-2008.en.softonic.com/ If it's malfunctioning, you'll need to replace it.
As you have stated that you have no power this means that the CPU is overheating and is unable to complete the function of opening the operating system if you can feel the large fan that circulates air throughout the laptop you can generally say that the power is reaching the mother board but the CPU is getting to hot to function therefore i would sagest that you see about getting a heat seek fan for your laptop if you take it to a reputable computer store they may replace it for you and double check it for you
Hope this solves your problem Paddy
