I think that particular model has the fan mounted in the back of the case just below the power supply. It has a duct that goes from the fan to the processsor. Remove case cover and remove the duct by pressing the 2 tabs on the top of the duct and rolling it back and out. Unplug the fan cable from the mainboard . Make sure you remember the connector as you will have to plug the new fan cable back in. Remove the screws that hold the fan to the case and remove the old fan. Install the new fan, plug in the cable and if your computer is dusty on the inside blow it out with some canned air . Re-install duct by sliding tab at bottom in first then pull up to lock in top tabs. Replace case cover and she's done.

Replace the fan. You can find them very cheap on ebay. You just have to
take the laptop apart to install it. While you're at it and have the
laptop apart you might as well put a fresh coat of Thermal Paste around
the CPU and Heatsink. I'm sure it's thin or dried up by now since the
fan was faulty.
look on ebay and in the search box type your computer's make and model
followed by the word fan. For example. HP Pavilion DV1000 Fan
You need to open the case and watch the CPU fan. If the fan is not spinning or is spinning slowly it will need to be replaced. Take the computer into your local computer repair shop so they know which processor fan you have for a suitable replacement.
You may notice a large amount of dirt and dust build-up around the heat sink and fan. You can either buy a can of compressed air and give it a blast or take it to your local garage and use an air hose or tyre inflater to blast the dirt and dust from the entire case.
Well we done this couple times on our own machines;If you broken the Face/Plate where your Cpu set in place,1.you maybe able to get ont though Manufacturer,and thats slim chance,because there in business to make money,to sell you new motherboard.2.Well what we done if your heatsink clip is real Good set it all in place where it needs to be,take areal small amount of good static tape go around it,it will hold it in place tempory.3.Then put your heatsink on,and clip it on both sides.4.That will work Tempory/or for long time depends on you tearing it apart again.5.Ours x's Laptop sold it to afreind and show hime what we done,and he was o'kay with it.It still working after 6months.Thanks we hope this may help you.
I had a similar problem on my zv6000, but I've tracked it down to the fan in the middle (not the one above the CPU with the heatsink).
For anyone else that doesn't feel like taking your laptop apart twice (once to get the part number and twice to put the new fan in after you get it online, etc.), the fan is a Sunon Maglev GC 056015VH-A. HP doesn't carry them in the parts store anymore, but I ordered mine online from an independent retailer.
the fan could simply be clogged and is held stil, or it needs to be lubricated, remove the fan, on the rear there will be a sticker covering a small hole, carefully peel back sticker, dont take it off, it stops dust geting in there, under that sticker will be the bearings, spray a small amount of a general lubricant or oil in there, and turn it with your hand until it is free and easy, mount it back on heatsink and it should work, failing that try a new fan
