Yeah it's a theme I found.
I don't know what messed up the fan because it used to work fine, until it stopped working and I replaced it. It's still wonky, it either does not turn on or it starts and stops, and I have to force it with a program on Windows for it run ok. There's a version of the program for Linux but It hasn't worked as well (Though I'm probably not doing it right, as it is terminal based.)

The CPU also started running really high for everything around the same time the fan stopped working. (After much tweaking I managed to get it running ok in Windows XP, not sure what was causing it.)
Also I didn't use to have that much problems with 3D effects as it does now, it'll just be really slow or have some glitchy problems, not sure what happened there. I like XFCE, but sometimes I'd like to try some more flashy DE's.

My laptop is a Dell Latitude D620 with a Nvidia Quadro NVS 110m.
You sure the fans not defective then? ir that it works with your BIOS?

Nvidia has really stepped up their Linux drivers since Valve made them as Valve is trying to leave windows and move to Linux cuz windows 8 is that terrible.

Have you tried Elementary OS? It's pretty lightweight and flashy.
