In that case the laptop lacks the most basic sensor's and it should have a hammer taken to it immediatly.

On a serious note have you tried running something very CPU intensive... that should kick the fan into operation, try a 3D benchmarking program or similar.

What are the symptoms what makes you think its overheating?.

Needs taking apart then see if the fan can be salvaged. I take apart at least one dell laptop every week they are complete gash. Sony are a lot better but as a result are quite hard to get into.
