Hello, My lenovo P50 is about a year old and has started making this weird grinding noise. I suspect dusts in the fan and the easier option would be to hand it over for lenovo to look at but Im in Abuja, Nigeria. Doubt there are any Lenovo certified centers here.
The sound started about 3 days ago and it gets really loud.
Does the sound affect performance? I do alot of intensive 3D rendering and compositiing in After Effects, performances seems to have dropped whenever I try rendering. So all I've stopped doing any CPU intensive work to prevent probable damage.
I have the 4k |i7 6820HQ | 16gb ram | 256 SSD| 2TB HDD.

I am not an expert on P50 fans, but my initial thought is that a bearing is unevenly wearing in the fan motor, which means the fan needs to be replaced.
