Have you tried cleaning out the air intake for the fan? Why can't you change the cpu speed , did you overclock it ? Can you get a laptop cooler ?

If your fan isn't spinning at all it's either become unplugged some how, or it has died. Open it up and make sure its still plugged in, and/or replace the fan. (new fan units for your laptop are available on ebay I'm sure.) If you need to replace you'll need some new thermal paste.

There is a heatsink with a fan in it somewhere under there. I thought you knew where it was because you said it wasn't spinning anymore.
