    I am very sorry to say this, but I have no idea outside of reviews if those tests can help.
    I have never touched or seen an Ubuntu system.

    I don't think the fan works because it stopped making the noises it usually makes to cool the laptop down. So that is probably an error that it says its okay. I feel heat coming from where the fan is located but it isn't very strong maybe the fan is burned out and can go operate at low rpms only. idk. lol.. :)
    Should I replace the fan anyways? I have taken my laptop apart before to upgrade ram and check for where I can replace my wifi card not because it doesn't work but because I wanted to use it with an operating system with only free software or open source only no proprietary code at all.

    This is from assuming your words are true about the fan.
    Yes, replace the fan, never use a broken fan.

    I will first replace the broken fan in my laptop then I will run the tests to test the hardware to see if any is faulty. After all that I will report back here.

    Maybe my dvd/cd drive is faulty. I downloaded the microsoft windows 10 free disc two times and burned too times and it doesn't want to boot into installation window. But I am not sure I have been using to to rip dvds with handbrake and it works great for that. idk. I am able to boot into installation on windows 7 32 bit drive with virt-manager its like virtual box or vmware but free software/open source.

    My processor is 64bit so not sure why a 32bit works only with a virtual machine. If it works in virtual machine will it work on dvd-r?

    VMware is free too
    Yes you can downgrade, but I don't know if you keep your files when downgrading.

    Okay I have replaced my fan with the new one and still it doesn't work. What could be the problem? Well it hasn't gotten hot enough for it to turn on but I thought that it turns on full blast when you turn on the laptop?? am I wrong? How can I do test the fan in the bios to see if it works?
