Question about Computers & Internet
I'll give you some things to try first but i will need to know the model of your notebook.
locate the fan and while the notebook is turned off blast some air inside the vents to clear out any dust that may be making a nice sweater on the cpu heatsink inside.

The next option would be to go into the bios and set the fan speeds but again i would need to know the make and model of your notebook.

Tips for a great answer:
Keeping the fans clean is especially important, because the fans blow out hot air and bring in fresh air to cool down the laptop.
Fans attract dust, however, which can slow them down, resulting in a hot laptop.
If the laptop overheats, vital parts can cease functioning altogether.
Consequently, keeping your laptop's fans clean is crucial.
The fan speed on a laptop can determine how it operates consistently and reliably.
You can slow it down or speed it up, based on the circumstances.
For instance, slowing down the fan speed may be useful in reserving processes or during a prolonged slow time.
Speeding it up is beneficial in keeping the laptop cool during ongoing use or high-traffic times. For the long term, find a happy medium for regular use, so you won't "psyche" out your computer by constantly adjusting the settings.
Click on the Start menu and select "Control Panel." Next, choose "Performance and Maintenance."
Select "Power Saver."
To slow the fan speed, locate the slider next to "CPU Processing Speed" and slide it down by moving across to the left.
To speed up the fan, move the slider to the right.
Press "Apply" and then "OK," if prompted.
Hope this helps
