My computer shut down, when I restared it I got a "fan error" so I let the machine sit. Putting my hand where I think the fan exahust should come from, I do not find a hot wind blowing. Hmmmm, my fan may have died on me. I sent a request to IBM, they were uber prompt about the CD drive that died a year back, so I have high hopes. The machine is still under warrenty. My big fear is having to send it away to be serviced, particuarly if there is not an IBM official servicer (if that is a real word) in my immediate area. Anybody know how easy it is to replace a fan on a lap top, i.e. could I do it?

My machine is running fine right now, but I have my main room fan more or less blowing right into the port. Ohh crap I hope this isn't an issue >:(

my fan never worked in my lap top, which was recalled at one point. yeah gateway was a great buy :/ I had the fan replaced, and it looked like a simple procedure b/c the fan is near the outside. Later they reconfugured some softwhere thingy and my fan magically turned off for the first time! So I suggest you just have faith and hold onto your computer for dear life. And try blowing on it, that might help.

I may apply a little Scofieldian force to help "persaude" the fan to work...
