Hello there... i just had that same problem but got it figured out.. it was a really easy fix, but dont know if your problem will be the same... what i did was open up the panel covering the fan on the underside of the come and then unscrewed the bronze thing connected to the fan unplugged it then took the actual fan covering off and found a small amount of lint/dust that had accumulated there and was too much for the little motor to keep spinning... so yea.. you can give that try! might work... removing that lint completely fixed my comp... good luck
