You need to replace the fan. Simple as that.

Try cleaning it with an air-hose or something.
If it still doesn't work when it's clean, buy a new fan.

As a temp solution until you get the fan working, just buy one of the fan-mats for laptops.

The one below is the Targus Lap Chill Mat

Not necessarily though. In order to properly clean it you'd have to find out how to open it up and get access to the fan - you can try using compressed air, a vacuum cleaner, whatever, but there's usually enough stuff in the way to keep the dust from getting out.

Are the fanmats effective? I'm thinking about buying one.

if the fan has stopped spinning completely, there's a chance that its actually busted. not just too much dust.

The casing of laptops are generally decent conductors of heat, so as long as you can provide a flow of cool air, they will remain relatively effective. Note, when I say relative, I mean relative to no fan at all.

I have heard very mixed reviews of fan mats. I would suggest buying a cheaper one to try out.
