    It started a couple of years ago. Stopped. Occasionally would appear but go away after a couple of minutes.

    Now it is here to stay? Being like this for 2-3 days at least.
    I know I will have to open the laptop again. Meh.

    Sounds to me like a fan bearing went bad somewhere in there. Replace the fan, happy days.

    Also blow out all the dust while you're at it. Can of compressed air should do the trick.

    I've heard one exploding before, rather unpleasant.

    Yeah, no mechanical drives, it has to be a fan.

    Not one which changes the noise it makes. Still, obviously a fan I agree.
