Default Noisy laptop cpu fan

Hey guys, I bought a Compaq laptop that is part of the r4000 series back in May and around August the cpu fan started making annoying grinding sounds. If I lightly tilt the laptop back and forth, it will stop, but soon enought the grinding sound will kick in again. I bought the laptop from Newegg and was wondering if it would be safe enough for me to fix myself. Should I buy a new heatsink fan or what? Or will Compaq fix it?

me: in fact the san diego\'s pretty much hit the very top on games
friend: yeah
friend: its all the illegal labor

you have to get the fan replaced, it's not like a cold it will not get better. If your fan slows or it stops the notebook will overheat and more then likely dammaged.
