x201 fan error

2018-12-31, 4:20 AM

When booting my x201 I get fan error on screen. If I press escape it continues to boot to windows but begins to get quite hot quickly. What component needs to be replaced and how difficult is it?

This forum is for the tablet, not the notebook.  It is the fan. (running too slowly).  You need to remove the motherboard to get at it.  The fan is mounted on the underside.
