Last night the fan on my computer all of a sudden started buzzing so loudly, it woke me up out of a sound sleep. It sounded like an alarm clock.
I took the computer apart this morning and thoroughly cleaned it out. Turned it on, it was still making the noise.
It is the fan, where if you are looking at it from the back, it is in the lower left corner.
I have only had it for 11 months, so it is still under warranty.
While I was talking to HP support, I turned it back on and it is at least quieter.
However, I am afraid it will do it again. I'd like to have it taken care of while it's still under warranty, but hesitate to bring it in, when it is now fine.
Is this something that is fairly easy and inexpensive to fix myself if it happens again?
