Subject: paola rescue 

ETMY end ThinkPad "paola" could not reboot due to "Fan Error". It seems that it is the failure of the CPU fan. I really needed a functional laptop at the end for the electronics work, I decided to open the chassis. By removing the marked screws at the bottom lid, the keyboard was lifted. I found that the CPU fan was stuck because of accumulated dust. Once the fan was cleaned, the laptop starts up as before.
