Aspire 3000 fan not working

I've had my Acer Aspire 3000 for a pretty long time now. I'd thought it was beyond any kind of repair after my siblings started using it and proceeded to clog it up with a bunch of stuff. I reformatted it, and it works like a dream now.
Except the fan doesn't work at all anymore. I've taken it apart and found the fan very easily. I used air duster to clean it out, and even a vacuum hose and a brush. The fan is probably cleaner now that it's ever been. In any case, at one point while I was looking at the fan and its port, the fan started up, but quickly stopped working a split second later. I can't tell if there's a problem with the fan itself, or just the port that the fan plugs into.
In either case, what solutions might there be for both instances?

Most fans run on 12volts DC, remove the fan and connect it to a 12volt power supply, if it spins freely then it is OK and the fault is with the laptop, if not replace it.

To repair corrupted system file/s, boot up with the Windows installation CD then -
Press R to repair when instructed.
Press 1 or Enter to repair the C:\Windows folder.
Then type chkdsk /r and then press Enter.
The repair process will take quite a long time.

ACER ASPIRE 3000 gets power off after some time automatically


If the laptop shuts down by itself and deosn't boot up again after some time, then the problem could be an over heating problem. The CPU shuts down when it overheats (thermal shutdown) and it is usually caused by a faulty fan and or the fan and heat-sink is clogged with dust.
Check the fan and if it does not spin freely then replace the fan and or remove the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly.

The cause can be either the motherboard is sensing the proccesor is overheating, but it isn't and is running becausse it thinks it needs to be cooled, which is not right, or the processor is actually running too hot, so check around all the vents, side and underneath and carefully hoover with an attachment around them, if it still continues, then a specialist repairer is requird to check board and processor.
