which fan? You could try speed fan.

SpeedFan - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

If you have a branded PC....like HP, Dell it may not support it.

Possibly fan speed settings in bios.

If you don't see any settings in BIOS for fan control, sometimes it's an "easter egg" where you need to know the unpublished setup key. I had a couple of HP machines like this. The only way I found out the key was going on an HP specific forum.

+1 HP's are a total PAIN to control fan sped. I just gave up on it and decided to find alternate solutions to it. You can try to undervolt. It really keeps a pc/lappy cooler

Use a fan controller and plug the fan into that.

If your HP's overheating (wouldnt be surprised, have used several of them), you can get a laptop cooling pad. Its a small base with a few fans which draw power from a usb port on your computer. Most effective.

The HPs I had with the Easter Egg had Pentium IV CPUs. My newer HPs that key doesn't work. But I have AMD CPUs now. Don't know if there's an Easter Egg or not since I haven't had any problems.

Not sure if he's talking about a case fan or cpu cooler fan. But the bios should handle the cooler speed from the correct header. On a stock set-up, maybe not.

For a case fan you might need a controler, or a fan with a controler
Newegg.com - IPCQUEEN FAN-SPEEDUP120-B 120mm Case Fan with Speed Controller - Case Fans
or perhaps a contraption like this
