I have a noisy fan on my Sony Vaio. Sometimes it stops altogether. I am experienced at hardware, the gauarrantee has expired and Sony want an arm and a leg just to look at it. I have had the fan out and the bearing seems loose.

Does anyone know where I can obtain a replacement fan?

The fan has part numbers " Sunon GC054006 v h-8C and also has the following numbers CB.M DC 5V - 0.5W Y2K44 ZP CLE


Thanks

Take it to a local pc shop. The local guys usually know what they're doing, and will tell you up front if they don't. They may even recommend another shop that may have more experience with laptops.

Thanks for the reply - I found a local UK supplier for the Sunon fan at kirklees-trader.co.uk and have ordered one at £30 inc postage.

Incidentally as a last resort I sprayed the fan with "plus Gas" and it has hadf a dramatic quieting effect (it is still running :) )

Thanks

Can you post a link to their site? I had a client about a year ago needing one for a Gateway laptop and I was told they were back ordered for a year in the US.......
