I've owned a G400 Max since August, 1999 and it has been problem free. Since I leave my PC on 24/7, it appears the cooling fan is making noises, like it needs lubricating. What is the best way to do this ? Can the fan be replaced ? I am using the DVI module and there is minimal space to work, so a larger fan won't work.

TIA...JL

apply a very small drop of light weight oil to it's shaft under the label.
