My HP laptop's cooling fan isn't working.

Okay, so. I have an HP Pavilion g6-1145sg. It was working properly all morning, and then I put it to sleep temporarily (about ten to twenty minutes). When I went to turn it on, the screen was black and said something along the lines of

 

"the system has detected that a cooling fan is not operating correctly. Continued operation would not be recommended at this time... may cause unpredictable behaviour that could result in random shut down, data loss or possible system damage." 

 

Then after a few seconds it shuts off completely. There is an option to continue with system resume, and I clicked it once, but it didn't go all the way through to letting me use my laptop properly (I got to my desktop background and it shut down). 

 

This has never happened before, and I have never had any problems with my laptop such as this before. I have had it since last August, and it has worked somewhat alright through until today. Of course, the system lags occasionally, but nothing serious, mostly just aggravating. 

 

How can I fix this?

Re: My HP laptop's cooling fan isn't working.

You need to get the fan replaced before you cause permanent heat damage. Stop using it until you get it fixed properly.

 

 

You can try and clean the fan, but this will not fix it if the fan motor is bad.

Mine is doing the same thing and isn't very old.  If it can't be repaired cheaply, I will NOT go with HP again.

Re: My HP laptop's cooling fan isn't working.

I have the exact same laptop and had the exact same problem. When it shuts down it means your laptop is too hot because the cooling fan cant help it because it is broken. My notebook PC was like this too but you need to clean the part at the side where it brings in air. Then I had to do this, take off the bottom part of your notebook and take all the dust out around the fan and, if there is, dust anywhere else then test it and it might work. But unlike mines, it might still not work, that means you probably need a new cooling fan

Re: My HP laptop's cooling fan isn't working.

it might be because you need a new one or it might have done permanent damage
