Whenever I reboot (or turn On from Off state), it says "Fan error" on a black screen with 2 beeps, then pause for about 3 seconds, then shuts off with 1 beep (doesn't even load Windows). This is why I usually just put the laptop to sleep rather than turn it off. So, I restarted my laptop because Windows Update required me to, and the fan error problem showed up. I tr
