I would not suggest yo uto luricate the fan but if yo want to, you will have to take palmrest off, first of all you will to take keyboard off to do so there are two screws on each side of battery take those screws off and then in battery compartment you will see two black plastic Knotch push those back one by one and keyboard will come off now unplug two flex cables one for power board and one for mouse pad also unplug the speaker wires on left hand side now take all the screws on top of palmrest and then close the lid and flip laptop over and take all the screws of n bottom and your palrest will come off and you can see the fan.

This isn't the best solution. Sony Vaio's VGN-S series are very infamous for grinding fan noises. One should see about oiling it or replacing (which is very expensive).

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.

Do you still have the original hard drive and can you still boot into it? If you can still get back in, run VAIO Recovery TOOL > VAIO Recovery Utility. You will be able to make a set of recovery CDs thats built into the system.
