I cannot seem to get my fans to work at all. The laptop gets very hot and I am sure this is because I have missed something when installing linux.
This is the output from inxi -Fxz:

Seems to me this may be the problem:
FAILED: nvidia unloaded: modesetting, vesa resolution: 1920x1080~77Hz
I'd only be guessing at how to fix, so wait for others to post.

I don't think that the nvidia failure would have anything to do with your system fans not working. But then again i'm no expert
one way to check that would to be to restart the laptop into your bios and listen to see if you can hear the fans operating, if they don't then that will tell you there is a hardware problem with the fans,Check the bios to see if the fans are enabled if they are working then it's a setting in LM and i remember somewhere that there is a switch to enable the fans, but for the time being i can't remember .
Other than that I can't help you much more than that.

It may simply be that the fans need a good cleaning. They can get blocked up with dust, etc. and the heat sink as well. If so, take it for repair or do it yourself
+1. These things can get blocked quite easily with dust, pet hair etc.. I shaved about 10-15°C off the average CPU temperature by cleaning off & replacing the old thermal compound & cleaning the crud out of the fan and heat pipe vent.
Normally the fan will run for a bit as soon as the machine is powered on; if it doesn't, it's likely seized or worn out. These can usually be replaced.
