You would need to get it serviced by a technician because it needs to be opened.
1. It could be that the interior part of your laptop is dusty that's why the fan stopped spinning.
2. It could be that the fan has stopped working because of a broken circuit.

Does your computer still turns on?

If it came with a DVD ROM you have to plug in the fan and put the DVD ROM disk into the laptop then go into a file called 'Computer' and click on the DVD ROM picture now go through the setup and your fan should work!! If your laptop is running 'Windows 7' you MITE not need the DVD ROM. If it still doesn't work take your laptop and the fan to a computer shop and let them sort it out for you!! I Hope This Information Works For You :-)

Dell latitude e6400 fan not spinning

Is the laptop running hot? Sometimes the power saving mode in the BIOS will shut off the fan to conserve power when the processor isn't in danger of overheating. Try getting into the BIOS and playing with the fan and power saving settings to verify that the fan actually works as installed in your system. Otherwise, if you know that the fan works and you have it plugged into the system board correctly, there must be an electrical malfunction internally on the laptop and there is no way to troubleshoot further unless you know a lot about circuitry.

My 46016 fan stop working

The fan should be working from the moment you push the on button, and increase the rpm's as the temp rides inside the laptop. In a laptop it is very critical in keeping the components from overheating and failing.

TOSHIBA satellite L645 fan is not working , i install new fan still the fan not working, the fan jack on matherboaerd looks good any one have idea???? thank you

Wow, that's a bummer. Did you install the correct fan? Maybe the laptop has to run a while before the fan kicks in.

You can always buy a fan cooling pad that plugs into the usb port and the laptop sits on top of it for less than $25

My fan on my Acer Aspire 3000 laptop does not work. I purchased a new fan, but I am having a problem removing the existing fan. How do I remove the existing cooling fan?

You have to tear down the laptop to get to the cpu fan. You have to remove the cpu heatsink also to get to the fan. It is allot of work.
