I want to buy a new CPU fan for my notebook

I have a IBM thinkpad notebook which was bought in China in 2005. The model is 1846cc6 (discrete graphic).

Now, there is a big noise with my notebook. I want to buy a new CPU fan to replace the old one. Could you please give me some assistance?

Thanks!

Fans are fairly easy to find and replace. Open the notebook and see what size it is (OD and thickness) in mm. Most run on 12v, but some are 5v. There should be some lable or marking on the fan. Then go to www.mouser.com, and select a fan that matches the dimensions and volts. Mouser has a large selection. Sometimes the connector for the fan is tiny, but it is a quick job to splice the new wires in place.

The ThinkPad 2647 8MU will not restart. After a screen that shows IBM Thinkpad, then a black screen comes up that says: Error Fan Error Press <F1> to Setup. If I press <F1> it...


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.

The fan has given up and now serious heat build up. are fans readily available and can they be easily replaced?


If you are asking about a desktop PC, yes, they are really cheap and easy to replace. If you are asking about a laptop, it's a little bit difficult. You need to go to ebay and find a replacement fan and some laptops need complete tear down in order to replace the fan or cpu, etc. it all depends on the brand and model of the PC. Some are somewhat easy to reach the fan. I suggest you buy a Notebook cooling pad which cost really really cheap. Some are about $10. Of course there's nothing better than the internal fan of the CPU but it could be an option WHILE you take it to a repair center.

I need a CPU fan for a 8480-25x IBM server


These fans are all very generic, just measure the size usually in mm and jump on any computer website such as newegg.com and buy one.

Goodluck.
