X61 fan fail

#1 Post by Arabian-Nights » Mon Oct 16, 2017 10:36 pm

When I start my X61 it bleeps then shuts down with "fan fail" message.
Any suggestions?

If lubricating the fan doesn't work (I've done it successfully in 2 X61's), you need to replace it.

We've tried a replacement fan. Still the same problem.
