T43 fan making clicking noise at high speeds

2011-05-10, 2:22 AM

My Thinkpad T43's fan is making clicking noise when it runs at high speeds. It sounds like it is hitting a wire or is off-balance or something. Suggestions or fixes anyone?

 

Thanks

Welcome  to the forum!


Cleaning and lubricating the fan (a drop or two of oil) should help.


If it doesn't, replace it.


Good luck.

Cheers,

George
