I have a Gateway M675X. I need a new fan, according to my local computer store. They said the part number is 1MIYZZ0173. I can't get it from Gateway. Where can I get tha part? The noise is intermitent -- a loud grinding noise.

Re: lap top fan making a lot of noise
Check places like TigerDirect.com or Newegg.com. They have high quality laptop cooling fans & should be able to help you find one that is better than the stock fan at a better price. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Had a similar issue on my Gateway laptop not long ago and ordered
the proper disks from Gateway for under 20 bucks and it only took a few days to get them via courier.so here is the link http://us-store.gateway.com/.Sadly when we bought computers years ago
new they came with the repair and or recovery media. Now its an extra but its so handy to have. Hope this helps Good Luck
Turn it on turn it over and see if the fan is operating. If not power your lap top off and replace the fan. You may have to not use this computer until the fan is replaced it is advisable not to. The smell you have may be dust smell when it gets hot. Clean throughly and make sure that all the dust is out of your computer. Also recommended a lap fan also which goes underneath the laptop to assist with cooling.
Lap tops are very touchy and need to be kept cool at all times otherwise you will be purchasing a new lap top if you do not take care of the cleaning or the cooling or the fan not working or spinning slowly. Check all this out. Critical if you do not understand what I mean take your computer to a local shop for immediate care. I hope this assisted you. John
Make sure when buying a battery that you match the battery numbers on the battery itself and the make and model I have provided a couple of links where I go to get batteries. Click Here I also do most of my shopping at amazon.com they have great prices. Click Here of course if you want it faster you will have to pay a lot more go to a local retail computer store. With your model and make this can be found on the underneath side of the lap top. John
I'm afraid this sounds suspiciously like a motherboard problem. It would help to know what model etc, as some Gateway & EMachine model laptops have had extended warranties due to motherboard issues, or just go to Gateway.com and research it yourself.
I assume by charge you mean your power adapter. If this is the case you can purchase any universal power adapter for laptops within an acceptable wattage for your laptop computer. You can either visit your local best buy or circuit city store or purchase one at newegg.com.
Hope this helps. :)
