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.

Lenovo ThinkPad X61 got "thermal sensing error" when it boot up


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

IBM R52 1860-A36 Giving thermal sensor error


There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.

Thermal sensing eror ibm r40


Sorry to say, unless you are a hands on kind of person and can fix it yourself, the thermal sensor is malfunctioning and the only fix is to have it repaired by an authorized dealer.*********** board and CPU have these installed in certain spots to monitor temperatures. I hope this helps and good luck!

I keep getting this message "thermal sensing error"


That same thing happened to me this morning and when i did my research I notice it only happens to Lenovo brand Laptops. You need to get a new CPU. I was horrifed to know that because it's not my laptop.
