There are few ways to check whether your CPU fan is working properly

(1) check the processor temperature there are free tools to check this (ex:speccy ) got to your manufacture websites and check your normal CPU temperate. If the temperature is greater than recommended your CPU fan may not working properly

(2) Go to BIOS configuration windows (you must press your BIOS key set by your manufacturer which could be F10, F2, F12, F1, or DEL) there should be an option to check the temperature
