I believe my water cooling system is broken, it is a closed water loop watercooling system. I believe the pump isn't working, but I am not sure. How could I be sure, before I replace it, that the pump is broken?

Hopefully somebody with more hardware experience than me will answer but I would say to check your CPU temperature. Also see this youtube video.

I would fill a tub with water, attach tubing to each end, put one end in the water and the other in a sink or tub. Use the paperclip trick on your power supply. Put a paperclip between the green wire and one of the black wires. KEEP THE PSU AWAY FROM WATER. Plug the psu into the pump and turn it on.

Or, put a drop of food coloring in the reservoir.

If your pump has stopped running your temp will spike through the roof. As JohnC said, check your CPU temps. I like Open Hardware (free) for accurate readings. Keep it open while running the computer and watch your temps.
