I need help right now. My fan has started to smell of something, no air is coming out at all and this rattle sound keeps on going (It's very high pitched, but very subtle). My dad won't let me do anything "cause it'll break the guarantee" so i was wondering what i should do. (He won't even let me take it to the PC guys downtown)

Also, i provided you with an audio file of the internal sound.

Thank you in advance. Hope we can solve this.

Well, the hell with the warranty. Just ask somebody who is tech savvy to take it apart and clean the cooling assembly, change the thermal paste and put it back together. I am more than certain the cooling fan is choked with dust, that's why there's no air coming out. The CPU and GPU are subjected to massive overheating. Do something about it fast, as i am certain you would rather spend your money on presents, not a new laptop.
