Answers :

Dude calm down, if the fan needs to be running, let it run. If you absolutly need it off, download speed fan and turn it off so you can enjoy peace and qiuet. Or if its a part of the acctulal laptop and needs to be on in order to work, dont touch or mess with it. :)
First, I recommend cleaning all the dust out of the cooling vents. Use an old toothbrush to brush the dust away from the vent holes and blow air through the vents using one of those compressed air cans made for cleaning keyboards. One time I worked on a Sony laptop that I had to take apart to get all the dust cleaned out of the air vent.
\015\012The second thing I recommend is to download a piece of free software called FanSpeed. Here's a link http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/SpeedFan.shtml
\015\012I'll let you read the description for yourself, but in short it allows you to monitor the temperature inside your computer and to adjust how the fans react to this temperature.
