Sounds like something is in the fan that only affects the machine when at a angle.
Its under warranty.

The fan may have something stuck in it, or a bearing might be faulty in the fan assembly. If it is under warranty and you havent done anything to cause the damage I would contact Dell support and they should fix it for you.

The bearing sounds likely.

Common fault in some laptops as long there is no physical damage to the machine (I.E you havent dropped it) should be an easy warranty claim

I have complete care and can bounce it off the road as far as I know and its covered.

Id prefer to fix it myself it they will send the part.

At any angle, or one in particular?

I called up Dell and went through all the issues.

They are changing the mother board - it squealed at me last week
The Fan
The bottom half of the laptop - as there is a small crack  
One rubber foot is missing
New keyboard - as a key fell off (loud cough)
New LCD as there is a smudge on the far side of it.

It would be easier to list the parts not being replaced.

I had the CD rom replaced before.
