Yes you should fix it asap, or your laptop will turnoff by it self if it over heat.

Sony Vaio K33; the fan seems to run all of the time, hot and nois

i had the same problem with my vaio.

when disassembling the notebook: after you remove the metal cover under the keyboard, you'll see three areas covered with black thermal tape. peel back the thermal tape and you should see tightly packed dust buildups in those areas. use a q-tip and vacuum if you can or air duster. be sure to clean the fans as well as the heatsink assembly.

once that is done, your noise level should be reduced by about 60-70%.

if you're still running hot, consider cleaning the old thermal grease off your processor and reapplying a new layer.

Vaio computer problem

You could have a faulty fan and/or dust clogging the fan and heat-sink assemble. This is the most likely cause of the laptop shutting down. When the CPU overheats it goes into thermal shutdown and if this problem is not fixed, eventually the CPU will fail.
Check the fan to see it it spins freely and check if the fan works when the laptop is powered up.
If the fan and heat-sink is ok, then to give the laptop addition cooling then purchase a laptop cooling pad and place the laptop in this pad (These pads have cooling fans and helps cool the laptop).

My Sony Vaio seems to kick the cooling fan on quite a bit more than normal and even seems a bit noisy for a computer this the norm???

Fan on this model may start and stop spontaneously. This is normal. Although if VAIO is overheating this would be good idea to contact Vaio tech support.
