In the approximate 2 years I've owned the thing I noticed the fan noise slowly increase in intensity and at this point am wondering if I should replace it or not. I had first thought there was dust build-up, but after disassembling it recently I noticed that one of the fans felt loose to the touch compared to the other. It made much more sense to me at that point as I'd realized I needed to replace the fan to get rid of the whirring crinkle noise it makes. I'm not sure if my concern is misplaced because the noise is somewhat minor and the computer performs well despite it but it annoys the crap out of me. It feels hot to the touch on the right side of my keyboard that corresponds with the fan, and there was also at least two occasions where the fan started making extra loud noise and I could physically feel it moving more and hitting against the inside of the laptop. This led me to shut it down and disassemble it thinking I needed to clean the dust off both times out of panic. The sound was just that loud and alarming, almost like a chainsaw starting up or something. But lo and behold, loose fan. If I could find the replacement part for the laptop I'd happily replace it myself. Help me please!
