well, I actually look the computer apart and cleaned some large dust bunnies out of the fan and heatsink area, but did not remove the heatsink. it's been okay so far, but I doubt it will last. I doubt all that noise was coming from a couple dust bunnies.

just an update: my computer has been running a lot cooler and quieter. it seems as tho the fan is on continuously, but it is quiet so it doesn't really bother me.

well, I didn't "get" the fan to stay on always. It just comes on and stays on because my computer is always hot. why do you want it on all the time anyways, even when the comp isn't hot?
