My laptop refused to boot early this week. It beeped and printed "Fan Error" on screen. The laptop has been with me for almost two years and after seeing the error it occurred to me that I have never opened it, not even once, and now I have to.
One thing I love about Thinkpads is how well documented they are. I was immediately able to obtain the hardware service manual from Lenovo's website and got to work stripping the bezels, keyboard and palm rest to get to the dirty fan.
For the voyeuristic pleasure of my fellow geeks, I took some pics of my naked T61, after I cleaned it up, of course. Enjoy !!
