Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-S460 Notebook ?

Sony vaio fan is making a grinding noise, how can i fix this?

Answers :

The sony VGN-S460 seems to have an inherent problem with their cpu fans. It is apparent that the fan uses a ball bearing system which over time becomes worn and causes the grinding sound.
\015\012The only solution is to replace the entire fan assembly as they are inseparable.
My sony vaio model VGN-CS11S has also the same problem on its CPU fan, grinding noise. Where can I get the spare part which could precisely fit for this model to replace it please?
