Okay, my sisters dv4000 is having some issues. she asked me to take a look at it because it was making a funky fan grinding sound. I confirm it is a fan that sounds like its on its way out. I belive its the CPU fan because she also says after a 3 or 4 hour contiuned use, the laptop gets EXTREMELY hot, and runs a hell of a lot slower than it should be. Its got the 1.50ghz Celeron(lmao) with 512mb Pc-2700 Ram.(if that helps) When looking at the computer for normal use, its on the left underside of the computer in a bout the middle(in front to back terms) 2 things, can anyone confirm this is the CPU fan, and 2, is there a way to replace it or do we wait until the cpu fries and get a new laptop?

Hello Johnny Boy,

That does sound like the location of the processor. You could take it to a PC repair shop to be fixed or you could examine the defective component purchase a replacement and fit it yourself
Regards,

Alan.

You can try getting a can of compressed air and stick the nozzle in the vent and blow it out some

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
