Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3100-1458 Notebook ?

Here recently, my cooling fan is making a lot of noise, I took the back cover off and it isn't as loud but when you replace the cover it gets loud again, almost as if somehow it got bent or something is interfering with its ability to work, what can I do to fix this

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

\015\012You can order a replacement fan off of eBay for a very reasonable price. These are fairly simple to replace as long as you have schematics and put everything back together as it was.
\015\012
\015\012If you are not comfortable with this, you can take it to a tech and they will replace the fan.
\015\012
\015\012This is generally caused by heat and melting of the fan which slightly bends a blade or two and throws it off balance. The noise you hear is the fan blade hitting the fan casing. If you press on the housing right above the fan, it will sound louder.
\015\012
\015\012The fan is very important and should be replaced soon. It is the main component that keeps the laptop from overheating and will save you from hard drive, motherboard, etc. failure.
