I see that you're having an issue with cooling fan on the notebook. Typically when you get this error message either the fan is dirty or it's broke.
I would suggest replacing the fan before you cause permanent heat damage. Now, you can follow this document to clean the fan first.
If cleaning the fan doesn’t work I would suggest updating the BIOS. Now, if updating the BIOS and cleaning the fan doesn't seem to fix the issue, more than likely you will need to replace the fan.
Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide. You can go to page 90 which shows you what fans are supported and how to replace it.
If you have any more questions please let me know. I look forward to your response.

OK, that's fine. In my previous post I mentioned updating the BIOS. I also gave you a link to update it. All you need to do is clicks the link above that says “BIOS” and install the update. I reposted the link for you ^. Also, here is a document that you can also follow which will show you how to update the BIOS if you have any more trouble.
If you have any more questions let me know.
