My fan started getting noisy so I open up my laptop and cleaned it out. Put it all back together, turned it on and now it's even louder than before. Any suggestions as to the cause of the problem? The laptop itself is running fine btw just the fan is being extremely loud and running at 3000+rpm and the cpu is at 48-50 degrees celcius.
Right now I'm going to take it apart again, see if I did something wrong. Any other comments or suggestions as to a soultion would help though. Thanks!

yes you're correct, it does appear to be that. For now I took my laptop apart again and I took apart the entire fan and put some lubricant on that area. it appears to have solved the problem for now, just as quiet as when I bought it. I've ordered a replacement part but it looks like what I've done will keep the fan quiet for now.
