M90z: When starting computer, fan makes loud noise like it is malfunctioning

2011-03-23, 3:09 AM

When I start my M90z from hibernate or off the fan is making a loud noise like it is malfunctioning.


It always stops after 1-2 minutes.


This not the loud noise a fan makes when most computers start.  This is noise like something is wrong with the fan. It is a grinding noise.


It actually doesn't bother me that much.  It gives my computer a certain charm. :smileyvery-happy:


I just want to know if this is something I should address while I have it under warranty.


Does anyone else have this noise?

Hello mate,


You should call for warranty, may be the bearing...
