Having problems with your Sony PC Laptops ?
Cooler too noisy
\015 Hey guys,I have the vgn-cs11s/q. I have my laptop for 1 month now, but the cooler recently started making a weird sound. Do you know how can I fix it?Thank you very much...\015
If the fan was working correctly, and is now making a noise it's probably a bearing/lubrication issue on the fan itself.
If the laptop is only 1 month old I would take it back.
