Hello, I see that you are looking for a way to change the fan. Since you are using a laptop, it will be really hard to actually find the fan that fits your laptop. The fan itself has to be the exactly same fan that you currently have, and manufactures usually do not sell laptop parts. This means, it is extremely hard to find the replaceable parts. My suggestion for you is to open up the laptop lid, and blowing away the dust that has been covered up inside the fan and throughout the motherboard. Also, there is a program called SpeedFan which allows you to control the fan speed depending on your computer. This program sometimes may not work with selected computers, so I would recommend you installing and seeing if it works.
Hope this helps, and let me know if you have further questions!

In PCs, it's a bit easy but not for laptop. Getting in touch of a local repair shop for that is what we recommend.

Which HP laptop is it? BING that for its site. There will be instructions or an Owner's Manual there.

My own Dell Inspiron 3542's Owner's Manual calls it a "Heat-Sink Assembly", & it is deeper in the laptop than I'll ever really want to go. Ten items will have to be removed from the Battery to the System Board, inclusive. Finally, the System Board needs to be turned over & "capture screws" removed in "sequential order" to lift the assembly out.

Good luck, & keep us informed.
