How to bypass Fan Error on X1 Carbon

Hi folks,


We're in a real pickle right now trying to help out one of our faculty members.  She needs to use her new X1 Carbon laptop but is getting a 'Fan Error' message on her X1 Carbon immediately after turning it on. 


Is there anyway we can bypass this error on the X1 Carbon?  We're trying the Escape key with no success.  We understand that the laptop may need a fan replaced, but we really need to access data for an important conference tomorrow in Dubai.


Any ideas or suggestions?  Thank you kindly!!

Re: How to bypass Fan Error on X1 Carbon

try this method.

Otherwise you would be in a pickle. This is one reason why i dislike Ultrabook format with their proprietary SSD format.
