T40 2373 ibm fan error
\015 I had fan error, replaced the fan with a know goon fan, the fan still does not work. what else can be wrong with it?\015
One of three things; 1- when the fan codes on some IBM's, the code locks in the bios, there is a download the has to be ran in order to clear the code and the machine to run properly. Check IBM's support site to see if this is the case for your machine 2- If the machine overheated in the process of the fan going out, then the processor may have been damaged, causing the problem and 3- if there was a malfunction with the motherboard which initially caused the fan to stop working, a new fan won't work either. Test the old fan by hooking power up to it, it is power direct and has two leads positive and negative, when power is applied it will run or not. If it does run then the problem is with the motherboard. Try these and get back to me.
About 50% of the chance when I turn on the computer, I got "fan error" on left up corner of screen. Another 50%, it is normal. Can you tell me how to fix it?

Laptop Fan? I shut down my laptop (which I never do), and when I tried to reboot it, it beeped and said "Fan Error," then shut itself back down. I'm assuming that means my fan is dead, and I need to replace it...correct? About how much will that cost, and where can I get it repaired? PS - I don't know if I entered the right IBM style (I don't have my laptop with me)...I purchased it in 2003 and it was the thin one of the two offered.
I had a very similar problem and got the same error message upon startup, but if I kept pushing the power button, my T40 would eventually boot. In my case, the problem only occurred after shutting down the computer, not after restarting. Eventually, ... IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
