Startup problem ibm thinkpad t43

\015 My notebook is having issues starting up. Whenever i turn it on, it barely gets past the bios messages and then turns itself off. I have tried;- removing the battery and starting it up with the power connected- removing the hard drive and booting with a live disk- booting to biosbut none of these things work. It goes off after a few seconds. Any ideas on how to fix it are welcome. Thanks!\015

Answers :

This could be one of a few things: 1 overheating, get a can of compressed air and blast the air vents and the fan, there could be a build up of dust and fluff causing the machine to overheat.
2 corrupt bios, this is a nightmare to techs like us!! mainly because its a last resort when all other avenues have been exausted and the bios has to be flashed, if you can locate the motherboard battery and take it out for 10 mins, this will clear the cmos, you will have to open the machine up to do this.
3 the CPU fan has stopped working, turn the machine on and listen and look if you can to see if the fan kicks in
If all these fail check the seating of the CPU heatsink to make sure that it fits nice and snug
Are there any status lights on? What are the circumstances that led to this issue? and Lastly, describe the climate you use the laptop and how long you use it during any normal period of time?

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.
