Hi there, I have a laptop Toshiba Satelitte Pro L450D, which turns off when it feels like it, due to overheating. I've downloaded speedfan, the CPU is usually at about 20-50%, no problem there, the HD0 is 40C, again, no problem, however the CORE is at 100C! Which is bad! And the reason is, is because my fans don't function! This problem has risen up recently, its at 0RPM.

My real question is:

Do I need to buy a new fan? Or is it that I need to alter something. How do I replace it?

Is the whole laptop busted?

I don't want to buy a new laptop.

A laptop has very few user replaceable parts.
The fan would require that the system be opened up and if you are not confident enough to do that I would suggest taking it to a shop and letting them replace the fan.
Not knowing what the going labor rate is in your area you can plan on anywhere from 50 to 150 for the part and labor.
Still cheaper then purchasing a new laptop today.
Word of warning though... make sure you do a backup of all your important data as no repair shop will guarantee your data.
