It is puely a technical job, if you have some technical know how the you could chnage it by yourself. it needs to open all covers of note book to reach the fan on motherboard. you can find the fan at sony authorized service center.

i suggest, the job may be done technically by a authorized technician to avoid future complications.

These guys have the fan for your model laptop. As for replacement they are usually not extreamly difficult if you are slow and take your time. If you are not comfortable doing it yourself a repair shop would more then likely do it for you at minimal cost if you provide the part.

Noicy sound from fan - vgn-z440


Chances are the cooling fan needs to be replaced, dirt buildup can also be a factor in noise. I recommend that the computer be dismanled by a pro and the condition of the cooling fan be checked, plus real good cleaning.

My laptop (sony vaio VGN-CS325J) fan makes a horrible noise


This means that the micro ball-bearings are on their way out if the bearing race smashes then the fan will stop I suggest sourcing a brand new fan and fitting it yourself you might need a star drive look at the profile head of the screws.

Make sure that both the mains supply and battery are removed, the fan will be a simple push to clip connection with only 2 wires.

Sony vaio fan is making a grinding noise, how can i fix this?


The sony VGN-S460 seems to have an inherent problem with their cpu fans. It is apparent that the fan uses a ball bearing system which over time becomes worn and causes the grinding sound.

The only solution is to replace the entire fan assembly as they are inseparable.

Annoying noise from inside my Vaio


I had the same problem with my Vaio, and I called in Sony Support and they called in a technician who came to my house in 2 days! Apparantly Sony got a batch of defective fans and if you are still under warranty they will replace it for free. Good luck!

My Sony Vaio seems to kick the cooling fan on quite a bit more than normal and even seems a bit noisy for a computer fan....is this the norm???


Fan on this model may start and stop spontaneously. This is normal. Although if VAIO is overheating this would be good idea to contact Vaio tech support.

Noisy fan--sony vaio vgn-s460


then if that is the problem to your pc then turn your pc upside down and dissassemled the screw at the back then your keyboard should be lift up slightly and if you can not do that on your own try to contact someone in that field to help you but just for you to tell the person that you know what is wrong w2ith the pc the person should try and check if there is anything too close to the fan that the fan is touching and if there is nothing the fan is touching and the noise continue then change the fan with a new one. bye any question again.
