I think that the cooler fan stopped working on my PC. I've noticed that while running flash based applications like youtube.com, join.me or any kind of game that might increase the heat of the CPU because of the resources consumption, my PC simply shutsdown! It's annoying and I'm affraid that this could cause a HD crash or something worst.
So, how can I be 100% sure that the cooling fan isn't working? (I've just placed my hand where the cooling fan takes the heat out, at it's backdoor and I don't feel any kind of air like it was used to work before, and also my HD makes a very loud sound these days)
Also, do you have a Tutorial for a clean up or replacement of that piece in case that's required?

Sorry to hear about your fan. If that is broken then that will lead to overheating and computer crashes. I have provided you with two links; the first will be how to clean your fan and the second is how to replace it. Please make sure that your PC is off and the power disconnected before you follow either of this documents.

For all those who're having a similar issue. Please check the following youtube videos:
The guy speaks spanish but you don't need to hear him, just follow the instructions and see how to replace a fan and clean up the Pavillion MS225 or any other AIO HP Pavillion PC. That helped me a lot here!
