[PLUG] My biggest fan

I had inquired earlier about replacing the fan in my HP laptop and got good answers - exactly the kind I wanted to hear.

This morning I took the bugger apart and replaced the fan. I hate ribbon connectors almost as much as I hate M$ Office ribbon. Youtube was very helpful.

The good news is that it came apart and back together with no extra or broken parts. The bad news is that I still got the BIOS message about foobed fan. This is a no-fix, correct? Some controller IC buried inside another IC with custom firmware? I had hoped my recent hardware lockups were just the fan.

The other good news is that I cleaned enough dust out of the intake to build a dust cat. And the temps have gone WAY down.
