Re: I need steps to replace Fan for my Sony VAIO VGN-S460
The fan is screwed together with the motherboard, the only way i figured is to separate it is completely unscrew the motherboard, cd drives.....then unscrew the fan from the bottom side of the motherboard....
i took the fan out just today, wantted to add some lubricating oil to it, but then can't manage to separate the blades & expose the centre
how much did the replacement fan cost? i am in canada, not even sure sony stores here have it.

I trust that you have purchased the entire fan assembly as they are inseparable from the heatsink. You must disassemble the entire laptop in order to remove the fan assembly. they are two screws that are below the motherboard that must be remove in order for the fan assembly to come apart.
If you cannot achieve this yourself, or lack confidence in your ability to rebuild the unit after, you can send the unit to us at www.cowetacomputerstore.com and we will accomplish the desired outcome. We have worked on this system resolving this very issue.
Possible clock timing of CPU is wrong. Is it two fan on this laptop? Maybe one is not functioning. Plus check your power supply if gives correct power!.. If none of this , it comes to the MB and possible a CAPS making problem. Need expert.
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.
