I made a custom cooling pad for my laptop and want to connect the fan below my laptop with the help of tape to the vent at the bottom of my laptop.

Can the magnetic waves produced by the fans motor damage components inside my laptop?

i think the motor as well as the laptop has better shielding. – Khaleel Jul 20 '12 at 9:07

Laptops contain many sources of electromagnetic emission like voltage converters, regulators, speakers, fans and magnetic drives.

Your laptop should not be impaired by external electromagnetic sources like a fan in your case.

Nope; your fan won't produce a strong enough magnetic field to have an effect.
