Question about Computers & Internet
It will be the CPU cooling fan.
You need to replace it soon as you can overheat and fry chips if it fails.
There is a lot of choice, but go for a middle range one if unsure.
Replacement is straightforward, but you MUST use correct earthing / antistatic procedures! - Buy an earthing wriststrap to replace the fan.
Hope this solves the problem for you.

Tips for a great answer:
Laptop Fan noise:
This seems to be a common problem with laptops over a couple of years old. Dust gets trapped in the copper fins and the fan of the CPU heatsink and reduces the efficiency of the cooling, which results in regular power off's by the laptop as it gets over it's upper temperature setting. The fix is relatively easy, just remove the heatsink unit, blow it clean with compressed air, clean the old CPU heatsink paste off with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and spray a thin film of heatsink paste on the CPU.
