Flip the computer back over after all the bottom screws are out and remove the keyboard and the plate right above the keyboard. This will allow you access cause there are 4 more screws up top that need to be removed

All sound geting a long beep

Hearing a 'beep' is usually to warn you there is a fault. I do not know a single long beep as a code for your Notebook. Turn it on and do not touch anything, and see if there are any short beeps and/or other long beeps, and let us know
Quite often it is a fan problem, can you hear your fan running and does it sound normal?

The cooling fan of my laptop is not functioning correctly. What do i do?

well is it running slowly or making noise? if it's making a rattling type sound the bearing may have gone out and if that's the can you should replace it, you can find a guide online on how to disassemble it. the fan itself should be relatively cheap. if it's running slowly or something along those lines you can always blow the inside of the laptop out with compressed air. good luck!

My sony VAIO laptop keeps making a clicking, rattling like sound and i want to kow how to stop it. It started happening because i left my laptop on a couch for an extended period of time. I read in forums...

sounds like the fan in your laptop is failing or is damaged, when you run graphic intensive applications and the fan turns on is that then you hear the noise if so it is your fan and you should see about getting it replaced because the components in your laptop will over heat and stop working.

Ready for take off

 Also it usually runs very warm.
You might want to consider acquiring a cooling docking station:

If your have never grabbed a 40-50 W lightbulb, you will quickly learn why your Toshiba is very warm.  They dissipate about that much power internally. 
About the noise? Well, without hearing it it will be difficult for anyone to diagnose it; it could be the hard drive but they are pretty small to make much noise.  I would suspect the CPU cooling fan that's going to fail early; they can get quite loud if they are a sleeve bearing type and the bearing has gotten sloppy enough for them to rattle.

Rattling Fan Noise

Unfortunately, even though the laptop is only 4 mths. old, sounds like the bearings in the fan are going out. I would have it replaced. If the fan fails, your processor will overheat and that could be problematic.
