Hello, for some times now I've been having trouble with my laptop. Last time I posted I thought my hard drive was failing but after looking into it I found out that I may be having overheating problems. So I placed a cooling fan into the laptop and for a while I thought it solved the problem. However, yesterday I booted up my laptop and saw this:

My laptop gets really hot but it's never given me this message before. Also, if I listen closely to the side of my laptop, I can hear the fan running and it sounds like its creaking or something, I don't know.

 

How do I fix this issue? Please all help is appreciated, thanks.

Laptop and its contents are important to you, please consider adding a USB or AC powered external cooling assembly, which either has one giant fan or twin fans.  Such really made a difference for my get-hot laptop.

I do have one, and I was using it at the time I got this error. I'm not sure it's as effective as I hoped it'd be.

Although I have never seen this error I would suspect that either the cpu fan is no longer spinning like it should be or another cooling fan in the laptop is no longer spinning as fast as it should be.  The system has detected the RPMs are slower than they should be and is possibly about to fail or has failed.  You would need to replace the fan.

How do I go about replacing the fan? I'm so unsure on what to do Now, seems I just royally messed it up.

It may be best to take it to a technician show them the error you were getting it is possible it won't boot up because the fans are not spinning so in order to keep from burning out the system it simply will not boot.  So maybe all you need is the fan's replaced.

I was able to boot it up by removing the battery and plugging in the power supply instead.....does this mean I may have possibly fried my battery?

Do you still hear the creaky noise when you listen to the fan?  I may have a bad bearing which may only act up when it gets hot.

No I don't hear the creaking noise anymore. I left my laptop alone for almost a day and I was able to put the battery back in, boot it up normally, and it hasn't turned off on me. But I know if I keep it on for a while, the laptop gets really hot and I might be facing the same problem over again. The message only shows up after I use the laptop for a long time. (Like for more than two hours in one session)
