This can happen on most computers and is not limited to sony.

\015\012It does sound like the psu fan may fail. Although not recommended by everyone you could switch off the computer and unplug it. take it somewhere that you can blow out the psu
\015\012
\015\012Remove the cover of your computer and with a can of compressed air meant for computers (dont poke the nozzle inside the psu ! ) blow out any dust bunnies or other unwanted creatures that may have set up home. Good time to blow out the rest too !
\015\012
\015\012Then take a can of WD40 and put a small squirt through the psu fan opening on the back.
\015\012
\015\012Re-assemble the computer and switch on. you may find that after a few moments it does quiet down,
\015\012
\015\012This is usually only a temporary fix.
\015\012
\015\012If you are competent you could remove the psu and replace the fan yourself (they are usually a common size) If not then a local repair shop may be able to do it for you.
\015\012
\015\012Worst case you are looking at a new psu but for the most part you should be able to take it anywaher to have a new one fitted in minutes.
\015\012
\015\012They are not too expensive and if you do change it then ask for a larger capacity in the power rating. EG if yours is a 300W psu it is always better to get say a 400W or 500W
