Fan error problem

\015 When i switch on the laptop it comes fan error and gets shut down\015

Answers :

Sounds like the mother board thinks the processor fan isn't running at all, or not fast enough. Can you verify that the fan is running, by sound and the movement of air through the vents? If no fan/air movement then you should address that fan problem that your thinkpad has developed.
In case it's the fan and you decide to crack it open yourself? Let us know?
