How to solve fan problem on Acer Aspire 5315

My father has an AcerAspire 5315. I was trying to install Slackware 13.1 on it, but it always suddenly turned off. I understood that it was due to over heating. I opened it and found out that actually the fan was not rotating.

I searched on internet and found two solutions:

  • upgrade the BIOS (which is risky)
  • use a program (acer_fancontrol)

I tried the second solution and it worked.

Here is some reference to the first solution:
