Fan make extremely loud noise AFTER cleaning?

Hello, I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Y410P that has recently been making a lot of noise, I figured it was a problem with the fan since I haven't cleaned it since I bought it (March 22nd 2014). I go on and open up the computer after reading a few guides and I went on to find out that my fan isn't that dusty. It had very small amount of dust on it but I still went on to clean it, everything around it, made sure I didn't screw it tightly. I screw the laptop back together and everything is fine. I start it up and its extremely quite. I thought I fixed it, until it started making even LOUDER noise and the whole laptop is shaking. I have no clue what to do now. The fan wasn't exactly dirty but I still went on to clean it with ear buds and tissues, didn't use compressed air or any of that sort. The laptop IS NOT overheating, its actually in very stable heat and the CPU is running at 1-5%. Please help me get rid of this annoying noise.

Re: Fan make extremely loud noise AFTER cleaning?

Hi DeluxeM , 



Welcome to the Community Forums. 


As what you have described " making even LOUDER noise and the whole laptop is shaking " , it would always be best to have it check by a service technician


If you have done all basic steps , then best to identify the part that cause the noise by physically locating it with an open chassis / cover.  


Things to check is the type of noise and location . You may use the manual as reference .

You may want to decide removing parts like the harddrive , battery and optical drive / additional tray that can help isoate the source of the vibration and noise. 


Update us how it goes.
