    So I my fan in the laptop is dying...sounds like the ball bearing or something is giving as it makes noise while spinning.

    Do you guys know a solution to fix or a replacement fan I can use? I tried to look for replacements but did not find anything and try to find something on the forums as well, any info will help. Thanks

    Try to contact with Clevo for a replacement,or simply lubricate the ball bearing.It should work.Wd40 is not proper for this as it does not adhere to metals/plastic and not dense that it will directly got off and spill/spread to all over the place if the ball bearing rotates.
