both hard drive and fan areas are vibrating on the laptop

my x54c laptop hard drive and fan areas are vibrating when under normal web browsing use, however when im playing a game like eve online the issue goes away while the game runs but after i log out of the game they come back after a few minutes, i would take the laptop fully apart but im not experienced enough to do that without harming the laptop and i cant afford to take it into a shop and the warranty has long since expired. i cant afford to lose this laptop at this point in time.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I suspect your fan is out of balance so when its rotating at a lower RPM you notice it.

I would start off by popping off the bottom cover to clean out the dust and other junk.

Get a small soft paintbrush and a can of can'ed air. Carefully scrub down the parts to loosen the dust then use short burst of air to push it away. Don't over spin the fan and don't forget to clean out the heat sink fins.

See where things are after that. You may need a new fan unit if it still a problem.
