It appears to be a fairly standard 50x50x15mm fan with a two pin type 2 connector. Try looking for a two pin 50mm fan with a thickness of less than or equal to 15mm. A quick search I've done can be found here.
Sounds to me like you could have a couple of possible problems.
First and most importantly would be to make sure that your cpu fan is clean and running. This is the fan that is located on the large heat sink on the mother board. A lot of times, especially on older systems, this fan and heatsink will get covered with dust and almost always cause an overtemp fault. Usually blowing this out with electronics cleaner will rectify this but if it has been like that for a while you may need to replace the cpu fan. Most electronics stores will sell these fairly cheap.
Your other problem may be that you need to purchase another case fan to cool the cpu more effectively. Generally though most premade systems come with enough fans.
Also you may need a new fan for the one that he replaced. It sounds to me like you may have a bad connector either on the replacement fan or the power supply wire. A real easy way to tell is to wiggle the wires a little bit. If your fan speed fluctuates odds are you've got a loose connection. It can appear to be fine but sometimes those wires on the molex connectors come loose and make don't make good contact. When that happens it may work fine for a few minutes, but then the first time that you get vibrations it stops working.
According to the owners manual on the hp/compaq website, that notebook has an AC cord that plugs directly into the wall. Therefore the notebook must have an internal charger to convert the AC to a DC voltage to recharge the battery.

Go back and check the fine cabling that connects LED indicaters to motherborad. There's got to be a small cable you forgot to plug into the board to feed back poer state. Take your time and check everything twice.
