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
