Noisy fan

Depending on whether you have a desktop or laptop, it could be an over abundance of dust on the fan or a bad bearing. Clean it well with a computer duster. If that doesn't work, replace the fan, they're pretty cheap online. Good luck!

v6420us - noisy fan how do I gain access to the fan for cleaning? Thank You.

Cleaning the fan won't stop the noise, it may help a little - the little bearing has worn having rotated millions of times.
Try a can of"air duster" spray to blow the muck away from the fan area.
You may need a new fan - the part is pennies but the labour will be more!!

your going to have to crack open the case and clean the dust away from the heatsink. keep in mind that this WILL void any warranty that you may have. also keeping the laptop on a hard surface as opposed to your lap/carpet/pillow will allow more air into the vents for better ventilation. remember, heat is slowly killing your computer
