Ignacio:

Try the latest BIOS from here:

It's supposed to reduce fan noise.

Make a great day!

Ignacio:
Has the fan always been noisy? Or is this something new? Occasionally we find a fan goes bad, even in the first year of the life of a PC. Perhaps this one is bad. Any chance of trying another? Is it a ball-bearing fan?
Good Luck!

OOPS, knock me upside the head, I didn't realize this is a notebook. Sorry Ignacio! Ignore my previous post. Listen to Roger, he's usually right!
