Question about IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook
When the laptop or PC is used, its processor and RAM gets heated. To keep it cool, a fan is used which circulates the air in the board. If there is no cooling system in the laptop, its circuit could be damaged by over heating. I think the fan in your laptop has malfunctioned or it is jammed by something. Turn over your laptop and try see if there is anything stuck in the blades of the fan. If there is anything, then take it out and then try to start your laptop. If there is nothing, then there is high possibility that the fan has malfunctioned. It would be better if you take it to service centre to get it repaired. Hope this helps you!!

Testimonial: "will proceed changing the fan assembly> hopefully solve the problem. thank you in advance"
It looks like for some reason BIOS isn't detecting laptop's fan spin. It may be because fan is full of dust that prevents it from spinning. It also might be that fan isn't working at all and needs to be replaced. Or might be that motherboard accidentally failed. First of all when you turn on your laptop take a close look at the fan at the bottom. If it's not spinning try to spin it with some long and slim object. If it's stuck, there is a good chance that laptop needs to be disassembled and cleaned properly. If it's moving free, then it might needs to be replaced. In this case I would suggest to give your laptop to someone who can do diagnostics
