Yesterday the fan was running fine and keeping the laptop cool, however today the fan is no longer working!! And so the laptop is shutting it self down when it gets too hot, any ideas on how to sort this problem out?

Cheers

A vacuum cleaner is a possibility. If that doesn't work, someone needs to open the computer up and see whether it's clogged up, or the cable has come loose, or it's broken.
