How easy is it to replace the fan myself Pc Rip off world charge £250.00 pounds for labour ? ;(
Very easy. you should be able to find a replacement fan on ebay or somewhere else on the web for discounted pricing. Go for it yourself and if you have trouble ask a friend or take it to a local repair shop.
Hi\015\012\015\012It depends on your manual skills. I have to say that i open laptops many times per week, and i dont find it that difficult. \015\012\015\012The main problem is that you probably wont have the service manual or a step by step instructions.\015\012\015\012There are a lot of screws that needs to be taken out and then put back into place at the exact same place. Doing a diagram while you take out the screws is very important the first time you open a new laptop. Replacing the fans inside are not a big deal on some models, but it could be tricky and you wont know it until you get there.\015\012\015\012The reason it's expensive it's because it's not always an easy task. So you can always try it, but I recommend that you let someone with experience do this.

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.
