Having problems with your Gateway M305CRV Notebook ?

Fan error - Gateway M305CRV

\015 Hi, I'm getting a fan error on boot, before OS loads... F1 to continue, F2 to enter Setup. The machine will work but misbehaves when it gets hot. \015\012\015\012I want to replace the fan... how easy is this, and is it the CPU fan it refers to or another internal fan?\015\012\015\012J\015

Answers :

There should only be one processor fan in this model. The computer may allow you to continue to work, but you should refrain from doing this due to the potential heat damage to your Processor. The reason it "misbehaves" is because as the computer heats up, the processor loses functionality. Usually the end result is that the computer will lock up or crash. Occasionally you melt your processor and it must be replaced.

\015\012In terms of replacing a fan, it is more on the intermediate side of laptop repair. If you have never taken a laptop apart before, I would think really hard about doing so, or go to a website like www.eServiceinfo.com that sells repair manuals for your laptop. It will take a good amount of mechanical aptitude to do this and some knowledge of electronics.

\015\012Due to the age of the computer, it would not be cost effective to take it to a repair shop since it may cost you almost what it would be to buy a new one of the same model.
