The fan in my Lenovo 3000 V100 doesn't seem to work.
- On Linux (Ubuntu 10.04) the laptop overheats sometimes to point of shutting down.
- I don't use Windows, but I tried a bootable Windows CD and it seems the fan isn't working. I can't hear it and it doesn't seem that any air is coming out of the fan. I tried with Thinkpad Fan Controller 0.20 and manually setting the fan speed to the maximum. I noticed no difference.
- When starting the computer I can hear the hard drive the first few seconds, but I don't think I hear the fan so I don't think it's starting at all. Os is it so quiet?
How can I be sure it is a hardware problem?
I ask this because a many laptops have problems in Linux with DSDT (a file from the BIOS) than only work on Windows. And I have had this problem in the past. (I tried compiling the Linux kernel with a DSDT I fixed myself and posted in this forum 2 years ago, but this time it didn't work).
