I would try cleaning it out. Get some caned air and make sure there are no blockages. If you are bored enough, try take it out, detaching it from the motherboard and reseat it. If it is fried, not much you can do but replace it, they are cheap though.

Jerigorn has the best advice on this issue. Clean it out with a can of compressed air. Also check to make sure you have all the drivers installed from teh laptop manufacturer site.
