The fan could be partially faulty and cannot spin fast enough.
You can also purchase a fan assisted cooling pad and place the laptop on this cooling pad.

Can i adjust the fan speed in the bios on my hp zd8000

You don't have to reduce the FAN speed, because the Fan power works in PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). I.E if the CPU processing is increasing due to high process load, the fan speed changes accordingly to maintain a CPU normal temperature.

How to increase rpm of processor fan

There is no way to increase a CPU fan's rpm. But you can try changing the settings in the BIOS on how it work for your PC.
You will have two options, first is SMART Fan which automatically adjust your fan speed depending on the load and heat of the CPU. Second is Always ON, which, as the name implies, makes your fan constantly run on the top speed.
Hope this helps.

Hi. I have a HP laptop for about 3 months and now it gives me the message " a cooling factor is not working properly" , and it shuts down 15 minutes later. what should I do? Should I go to the...

The laptop should be covered since it is only three months old. That's the good news. The less than good news, is that you may have to wait a while before you get your computer back.

I don't have the laptop in front of me, so naturally I can't diagnose the problem directly.
I would hazard an intelligent guess that the Cooling Fan inside the laptop has failed.

Components inside a computer are normally cooled by air. (High tech gamer computers may use a different type of cooling system. They may use water, or a refrigerant of some sort. { Dry Ice, Nitrogen, Freon, etc)

Two main computer components generate the most heat.
The Processor, and the graphics chipset. (Video chip, Same/same)

The Processor is the 'Brain' of the computer. It's designed to operate up to a maximum temperature, (Thermal Limit), and no higher, or damage to the Processor will result.

There is a Fail Safe feature built-in to turn the Processor off, if it becomes too hot.
(BIOS turns the Processor off)

With no cooling fan operating the Processor will overheat.

You didn't indicate what model name, and model number your HP laptop is.
This is to just show you what an average cooling fan looks like in an HP laptop,
(HP DV6 series ), and what is entailed in order to access it,

Scrolling down to Step 24, and 25 shows the top view of the cooling fan.
Step 29 shows the bottom view.

Would appreciate hearing the outcome, please reply in a Comment.

fan temperature and speed? Good question,. relevance is more towards the likelyhood that you've stored your pc on the floor and have dust/ debris which have gathered - a good cleaning of the fan may work, otherwise replacement is like 5 bucks... the can of spray air should be readily available at staples, unplug the power source and remove the cables, cover etc,. get into the unit and give it a good blast to see if that will suffice,. otherwise a cheap fan would do.
As far as the temperature of the processor which the fan cools - it goes to like 350 degrees as soon as it is powered up.. so it is best to be sure you have good airflow in and around the unit.
Best regards

Sounds like a problem with the power supply based on what you've written. Could be motherboard too, but Power Supply is usually the culprit.

I'd swap it out to test ;)

Hp pavilion a450n problem fan is running on high and keeps shutting down

First off - have you ever cleaned inside the case? You'd be very surprised how much dust often builds up inside a PC. After that it sounds like you might have another fan which has failed. PCs often have more than one inside and they also have temperature sensors to keep the CPU cool. If a case fan has failed it would not have air flowing inside to cool off the other components and then the CPU sensor would kick the processor fan into "overdrive". One thing to note; the difference between a two wire fan and a three wire fan is that the third wire is used to confirm the speed of the fan. Fans are usually easy to replace - just get the right size and the same right plug.

No fan of three fans!

YOu can use software like CPUcool to monitor and manage your system. It uses temperature sensors (if available in your laptop) to measure temperatures, and has features to manage CPU speed and some more.
