Question
i have a sony vaio vpcf1390x, the fan is really really loud and we cleaned it and and it is till loud and the laptop gets hot and we are not putting it to hard use. thank you

Answer
Hi stmmfarm;

Is the loudness of the fan due to the airflow or you hear some noise when it is running?

Have you ever taken apart the copper heat sinks from the CPU and graphics card? If you don't don't properly apply the thermal paste it can cause overheating.

If you didn't do anything to the heat sinks, then you've to replace the fan.

Best wishes
Mohammad
