It may just be dirty and need cleaning. Dust and debris can easily cause issues.

Should that not do it, then I would look at a replacement fan. Like anything, sometimes they just go bad.

If you feel comfortable doing the work yourself, great. Just be ultra careful. You don't want to damage anything else. Also, make sure you get the exact part.

Now if you don't feel comfortable doing the work yourself, you can always try a local tech.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the laptop is under any warranty, do not do any of the above yourself. Instead contact the manufacturer about a repair.
