Re: help please!!!
I wonder if your fans are about to give up? If the fan is louder than usual then its probably turning faster, its only if its making a weird sound would it be not working. The fan usually works faster/louder when it needs to get rid of heat fast.
Have you tried checking the laptop bios for temperature of the cpu, if it supports temperature monitoring that is. If it is overheating then you'll notice the temperature constantly rising.
