    Good day all

    I'm hoping someone could help me track down a replacement fan for the tablet side of a SB2 15" (Model 1793) I'm having no luck.
    Preferably in europe if possible.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    No its outside of warranty by a couple of months, typical.
    It sounds like the fan has somehow gone off axis, at low speeds it sounds like catching/grating on something, at high speeds it suddenly stops (with a loud vibration) then trys to start again only to stop as it reaches the same threshold. Rinse and repeat till the temperature goes down.

    There is a chance that this could be due to a buildup of dust or other debris. Sounds crazy, but a leaf blower directed into the ventilation ports should do no harm, but may help.
