Try entering the bios first to see if their is a diagnostic tool to detect faulty Hard ware. I assume the fan just fried and died, so you are going to have to replace the heatsink/fan. This takes a bit of skill and mechanical ability. Assuming a faulty fan You will have to: 1. get a replacement fan/heatsink for your laptop 2. take the old heatsink/fan off 3. put the new heatsink/fan on.
