My Dell Inspiron fan and heat shrink keeps making noise. I have replaced both parts 3 times and still makes noise. Any one know how to fix this problem. The computer is only 2 years old.

It sounds like the fan is hitting then Heatsink but it is not. I have watch it and can not see it touching anything. It is a very loud sound like gears grinding. I have replaced both the fan and the heatsink 3 times but still making the loud sound
Thank you.

Maybe a recording of the sound might help, and maybe a couple of photos of the inside of the PC so we can get an idea.
