    I just got my tm2 today, and it won't start up!

    After the hp screen it says

    "System BIOS has detected a possible issue with the cooling fan


    --cooling fan important for battery life, etc.,--


    Cooling Fan (902)"

    and the only option is to shut down

    How do I fix this?


    EDIT: So I had the laptop running on AC power (no battery) , and now its working.. However this seems to be a temporary remedy.. anyone have ideas?

    EDIT2: So while running on AC power, I attached the battery and restarted. Seems to be working fine now. Fan is blowing and everything.

    If the fan is really bad... send the unit back. It needs the fan.

    Yeah, send it back... having this type of problem so early in the game isn't a good sign.
