As others have said, the fan would normally run by default. You might try booting with "noacpi" on the kernel command line. This might also make some other hardware functions not work (or work). You might also enable the sensors (man sensors.conf) so you can see the temperature.

I don't have a laptop.  This is from reading other's posts.
