If you have to ask I recomend you take it to a professional. As most likely you don't have the tools to make the repair without doing additional damage.

Try entering the bios first to see if their is a diagnostic tool to detect faulty Hard ware.

I assume the fan just fried and died, so you are going to have to replace the heatsink/fan.

This takes a bit of skill and mechanical ability. Assuming a faulty fan You will have to:
1. get a replacement fan/heatsink for your laptop
2. take the old heatsink/fan off
3. put the new heatsink/fan on.

Unless you've taken apart and repaired a few laptops i strongly advise you to take it to a repair shop.
Laptops are a pita to work on and like one poster mentioned it's extremely easy to cause additional damage.
