    good news is, that is covered under AppleCare. Thats the great thing about having a Mac... I can't believe you would have such a problem with a new Mac... um, you do have a mac right?

    Almost 2 years after buying my MBP the video card melted because of a documented problem from Nvidia.

    I went to apple service and in 3 days I had my laptop back free of charge and without any apple care.

    Amazing.

    If you have any problem check on other forums to see if other people had the same probem with the same model.

    I agree with LanceBlaise, you have a mac so no worries? Some pc manufactures will have your laptop for 1 month. So it all comes down to their tech support quality.
    Thank Ya!!!

    I though the Panda Earl had a Dell?
    Then this whole comment-thing is bit cruel. Best of luck with the repairs; while I agree with the others on the Apple-service (in Germany), I hope that if it's not an Apple, you still get your Laptop back very soon!

    EDIT: No, it's a Sony! So offically: "That comments where mean!". Still, good luck with the repairs!

    Ohh... well. Sorry. Good luck then.

    I once opened a old sony vaio because the fan was making strange noises. I bought a replacement part from ebay and repaired it myself. But it was a computer with no warranty.

    It's very easy, you just need to know the name of the part (checking a sony pdf) then find the part and change it carefully.

    Try cleaning the fan with some compressed air, it could just be something stuck in the fan like some dust or something. I had to do that to a computer the other day because the fan was making a horrendous noise. Fixed it right up. May as well try that before you have to send it away.
