Lenovo t61 shut down w/out warning. Could it be

\015 Lenovo t61 shut down w/out warning. Could it be overheated or just out of juice?\015

Answers :

When the laptop is conected to the mains adapter and it shuts down for no reseason and you can boot up again after a period, it would indicate that you could have an overheating problem.
\015\012Check the fan to see if it spins freely and there are no dust clogging the fan and heatsink assemble, remove and vacuum the dust, if the fan is faulty, replace it.
If it were out of juice you should be able to turn it back on immediately by plugging it in. If it did overheat, simply waiting for it to cool down should allow you to resume using it, but i would reccomend buying a cooling pad they are cheap and run off your usb and will help prevent overheating in the future. If you check both of those and the computer just wont turn back on theres a good chance you fried something internally, most likely your hard drive. If thats the case i would take it to a repair shop where they can pinpoint the issue. Hope this helps.

I have a IBM Lenovo ThinkPad T61. My laptop had been having problems with its fan (makes loud noises, overheats, then shuts off). 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
