I put this here because when I was experiencing the same issue I found there was very little info online for this topic. Optoma asked me $125 just to take a look at my out of warranty hd20 projector after I started getting the dreaded "fan failure" error message, I got this error mesage after replacing the bulb (its important to note that the bulb did explode in the unit so some of the debris may have lodged in the fan.) Optoma also kept saying stuff like motherboard issues and fan sensors on the phone. Everything I've read has said the repair price is so high on these issues that it is better to upgrade to a new projector so I resigned myself to doing that very thing. Then I ran up on this video and thought what the heck. So I took the plunge and popped the case off and sure enough the same little fan was stuck and covered with dust. I gently moved it with a screw driver and blew all the dust out of it. Plugged it back in and I'm experiencing glorious 135" hd once again.
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.
1 +24VDC CHECK Measure the voltage at P/J456-1 and FG on the I/O PWB. Is there +24VDC between J456-1 and FG? Yes: Replace the “Fuser Fan” No: Use the Block Diagrams in the printer service manual to troubleshoot a loss of +24VDC
2 The following printer FRUs and areas are associated with this specific problem. One or more of these FRUs or areas may have failed partially or completely. If you cannot isolate this problem using the steps in this Service Check, replace each FRU or troubleshoot each area listed below, one at a time, until you isolate and solve the problem. • Wiring and connectors linking the FRUs • I/O PWB
The most affordable is to take it to a reputable repair person or check my website www.micromendllc.com. The price of the fan is cheap but in most cases to replace this fan requires a complete laptop strip down. Might as well get it down right the first time.
Have you had ur laptop for a while? If so it could be dust build-up, but when ever I came across a fan error it was usually due to the fan dieing out. Can you hear the fan at any point or is there no sound at all. If the fan is making no sound then you wont be getting much out of your laptop. Ive done more repairs for desktop fans and such, but laptop one might be a little more tricky to remove. Best thing to do if your not handy with this area is bring it to a computer repair shop. If the computer is new enough and still under warranty you should notify the warranty company of your problem.
Yes, It is possible to be a board problem much more likely to be a dust /dirt problem. I have not found anywhere to purchase the CPU fans by themselves.Would obve to be wrong on this one; seems that they are sold along with the heatsinks.

first.you can find the processor fan in some computer shop,but i dont know if they will give you.second,check the model # of the fan and check in the internet for delivery or else,you can repair the fan by replacing the dynamo of the fan with another model of fan,just anly remove the screw of the fan and try to find another model fan and replace the dynamo fan.
This kind of issue is i try with some of my customer because they cant find the same model of fan.
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.
