My Laptop was working fine earlier but now when I turn it on, it shows Laptop is shutting down because Fan is not running properly. I am unable to do my Office work. Is it a serious issue. Will it lead to Data Loss. How can I prevent my Laptop from getting damaged?
Laptop warns Fan not Running Properly, you may lose Data
Hi Corey Joel,
I am sorry to hear that you are having these serious problems with your laptop computer.
When the laptop's fan stops working properly, it is a VERY serious issue. A malfunctioning cooling fan could cause your processor to overheat and sustain fatal damage.
To avoid causing serious damage to your laptop, it is best not to power it on. Instead, you should take it to a qualified computer technician to have the problem resolved. This repair should not be very expensive since only a single fan may need replacement.
