Thank you for you inquiry. I will do my best to help!
I understand that your fan is not working. Do you get an error message? I am sending you a link to "Error: CPU Fan Failed" click here. If you decide to change the fan yourself I would suggest you start with a large piece of paper and make some squares or grids on it. When disassembling place the screws and parts in each square in order. When you go to re assemble you can follow your squares backwards and ensuring the parts and the screws are going into the correct place. I am sending you a link to a YouTube Video on "How to Fix an Overheating Laptop" click here. I hope this helps.

i GET THE SAME MESSAGE AT WHEN STARTING UP THE LAPTOP (g7) I DISCOVER THAT IT DOES NOT HAPPENS ALWAYS , JUST SOMETIMES, AND THAT USING A CLIP TO MOVE THE FAN BLADES , IT SUDDENLY STARTS RUNNIG. AFTER THAT IT KEEPS WORKING WITHOUT MORE ISSUES. TRY IT.
1. START THE LAPTOP
2. IF MESSAGE COMES UP SIMPLT HIT ENTER
3. LOCATE THE FAN (BACK LEFT SIDE OF LAPTOP)
4. USE A CLIP OR SOMETHING SMALL ENOUGH TO GO THROUGH THE GAPS.
5. MOVE THE BLADES FORWARD AND BACKWARDS A COUPLE OF TIMES UNTIL THE FAN STARTS WORKING
AND YES I THOUGHT ABOUT BUYING A NEW ONE, BUT INSTALLING IT REQUIRES OPENNING AND PUTING APRT THE WHOLE LAPTOP. SO I DECIDED i WILL KEEP USING TTHIS TRICK. IT WORK EVERY TIME AND TAKES 3 SECONDS. BESIDES, THE MESSAGE ONLY APPEARS FROM TIME TO TIME.
I DO NOT THINK IS SOFWARE RELATED LIKE TO UPDATE BIOS.
