Having problems with your Lenovo ThinkPad R61e Notebook ?

"Fan error" error message

\015 I have been getting an error message after starting up my laptop that reads "Fan error", and the laptop shuts itself down before loading XP. I can assume that the fan either needs to be cleaned or repaired - how can I attempt to clean it first (is there a website with detailed instructions?), and where should I take it for repair if that does not suffice? Thanks\015

Have you had ur laptop for a while? If so it could be dust build-up, but when ever I came across a fan error it was usually due to the fan dieing out. Can you hear the fan at any point or is there no sound at all. If the fan is making no sound then you wont be getting much out of your laptop. Ive done more repairs for desktop fans and such, but laptop one might be a little more tricky to remove. Best thing to do if your not handy with this area is bring it to a computer repair shop. If the computer is new enough and still under warranty you should notify the warranty company of your problem.

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.
