    That sounds like it is rubbing on something, very odd.

    Well sounds like the fan is catching, have you opened the back and checked or called your reseller?

    What do you mean by catching? I did open it look and didn't see anything wrong with the fan. I'm still waiting for the replacement to be sent.

    You need to lubricate the fan bearing with oil. By the sound that your fan is making, you may even need to replace your fan.

    A tutorial on how to do this can be found here:


    I would use sewing machine oil, as it won't dry up and become a thick, greasy mess over time.

    I don't have sewing machine oil, but I do have some gun oil. Either way, I hope this will alleviate the problem at least until my replacement fan comes.

    Noise level slightly improved for now until I have my new fan this weekend or early next week:

    It sounds as if the fan bearing is worn and is causing the fan to wobble on its axis, resulting in the fan scraping against the side of its housing. You'll almost certainly have to replace the fan. My P950's CPU fan was making a scraping noise, but I lubricated the fan bearing pretty early on after that started and now it's running fine.

    I replaced the fan and it's quieter than ever. Heck I almost think it's quieter than when I first bought the laptop.

    Hard to judge that but glad to hear you are happy.

    This happened to my CPU fan twice now... I've had the notebook from Eurocomm for less than two years, the fan started making similar noises and I replaced it a few months ago. The new fan is starting to make grinding noises again already.
