Fan Error - Thinpad T61

My ThinkpadT61 keeps displaying the fan error. The system boots up afer pressing ESC multiple times. What happens now is the syste, shuts down all of a sudden while I am working with it.

I have decided to replace the fan myself. Was trying to find the part# but was not sure which one to order.

Laptop Type - 7658CTO

The part numbers I found online were 44C0825 & 42W2460. 

Not sure which part is the correct one. Can someone please help with the correct part# ?

Re: Fan Error - Thinpad T61

Those 2 numbers relate to two suppliers for the same part.  Either will work.  I am assuming you have a 14.1" widescreen machine.  Other form factors use different fans.
