If it is a laptop purchase some canned air and with the laptop off shoot the air backwards through the exhaust vent in you laptop, (where the hot air comes out), if anything is stuck in there it should bee dislodged and come out the underside of your laptop where it probably got sucked in. wait a few mins as compressed air is cold and might cause condensation on the metal parts in your lap top and need a bit to dissapate. After you turn your laptop back on see if the noise is still there. Did you see anything come out the other side of your cooling system? If not and the sound is still there you should take it to a qualified shop where they can open it up and see if you have a major obstruction or a fan going out. It's better to have it checked properly than lose your laptop over a 19 to 39 dollar part. If the sound is gone and nothing came out repeat the air treatment till you can see and remove what ever was blocking the air flow and causing the sound. Again you might have to take it to the shop to have them open it up or use a proper tool to get to the culprit but if you are like me you would rather keep the laptop and spend a few buck than take the chance of a total loss.

My condensor fan seems to make a weird sound when it starts and a big clunk when it stops. Is that a common failure?

"condenser fan" in a car or truck? Assuming this is an AC unit or a refrigerator, likely the fan/motor support has given way, and needs to be fixed.

Fan doing weird sounds

Typically the cooling fan system accumulates dirt and dust which causes the fan system to overheat and warp the fan blades. The bearings of the fan are also a place to look. The cooling fan would need to be replaced if a good vacuuming doesn't do the trick.

Sorround sound switchboard lit up and quit working.

If the fan is making weird noises there is either something wrong with the bearing or it has ingested something.

Maybe you could look, listen closely and determine which it is. If it's foreign matter you may be able to extract or vacuum it out. If it's just bearing noise, you have to decide how bothersome it is and if a shop visit is justified. A clog is BAD because the fan is protecting the unit from high temperatures.
