What does the message say EXACTLY?
When was the last time you blew out the dust from inside the laptop?
Dust can collect on the fan fins, and cause it to slow down, and even stop completely, if there is enough dust.
how old is this laptop?
Ahh, well you should be blowing out the laptop about 4 times a year, or about every 90 days.
More so, if you live in a dusty area.
That doesnt mean after you blow it out the fan will start to work.
The fan might have failed, and wont work anymore, because it got too bogged down, and shorted out stuck in a single position.
BUt a fan replacement isnt too expensive, and can be done by just about any computer repair shop.
Unless you have some experience in taking apart a laptop, I dont recomend it
