It may be the fan bearing going out. This can cause the fan to make noise and sometimes stop spinning. If it has a warranty then you should have it serviced. If not then you will want to replace it yourself.

Sounds like an overheat to me. Take a look at your temps with something like HWiNFO32. If it's the right fan when you're facing the screen then it's the GPU temp...

My reply stands. It sounds like you are describing a failing fan bearing. If so then it is only a matter of time until it fails completely. You should have the laptop serviced if possible.

Is that idle? Play a game for a few minutes with the HWiNFO sensors window open, then look at the max temps.
