Starting last night my fan was starting to get very loud which it used to do occasionally when it got it, vibrating the laptop and such. I figured it was just because I'd left it on all day and it had gotten hot.

But this morning I turned on, very cool, and the fan goes goes on full blast vibrating the computer and making all sorts of noise.

What kind of problem do you think this is and what could be done to fix it.

Hi, welcome to TSF

Clean out any dust with a can of compressed air, make sure the air vents are kept clear, and replace the fan if necessary.

Check the temperatures in BIOS to see if the CPU is too hot. If it is, reapply some fresh thermal paste to the CPU.

If you can hear a clicking sound from the hard drive, backup any important data immediately and replace the drive.
