Grinding fan noise HP dv6 1130TX

\015 Hi Guys, About 2 months ago I purchased a HP Pavilion dv6-1130TX. The laptop itself is great and i'm happy with it's performance. However, about a week ago an unusual noise started to occur in the top left portion of the laptop. I'm not a tech guru or anything but i'll go out on a limb and assume it's the fan (lol) The noise is coming from approximately underneath the escape key and the power button and although quiet, sounds like a cross between an old car idling, and the noise coming from Aunt Beru's kitchen when she was making blue milk in Star Wars.Would love it if you could help with any assistance?\015
