    From the sounds of it the fan has died. This can happen for several reasons. If the laptop air vents are blocked and the laptop over heats, if the laptop is dropped, age of the laptop, and several other reasons.

    I would suggest having a professional look into this to have it replaced. If it is not replaced your laptop will start to overheat and can lead to damaging other vital hardware inside the laptop.
