My HP laptop suddenly shuts down within an hour after it gets hot. I think my fan is not working properly or maybe not al all. When I turn it on it says that it will be turned off in 15 secs or I should press "Enter" if I want to continue but it's not recommended. I choose to press Enter anyways 'cause I have to use the laptop.

This is the exact error message I see on a black screen: The system has detected that a cooling fan is not operating correctly.
Continued operation is not recommended and may cause unpredictable behavior that could result in random shutdown, data loss or possible system damage. The system will shut down in 15 seconds. To prevent shutdown and continue operation, press the Enter key now.
System Fan (90b). No I don't hear nor feel the fan running.

What model exactly is it? It could simply mean your GPU is maturing for a Reball, or it just getting hot, because the thermal paste is old

Probably means that indeed the fan isn't working. It shuts down when the CPU hits its thermal limit to avoid damaging anything.

They're usually fairly easy to replace on HPs if the bottom is removable. You can usually find spare parts for a specific model on Ebay.
