Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook ?

T23 fan error

\015 Recently, my house was blacked out while my T23 was plugged in straight to the power socket (not using battery).\015\012Then, when the electricity came back, I turned on my laptop again and it prompted "Fan Error". and won't boot to Windows. I'm using Windows XP.\015\012Anyways, I tried to boot several times and it's when i pushed the "ThinkPad" button on the keyboard, when the laptop booted to Windows as usual. But, now I realize that the fan is still not working as there's no sound of it spinning whatsoever.\015\012What should I do now? I don't have the manual or setup cd for the laptop.\015\012How can I diagnose whether the fan is still can work or not?\015
