I had a lot of problems opening the computer but did do it and did fix it by just cleaning the fan and oiling it with sewing machine oil I have one screw left over could not work out where it came from.The good thing is it is very quiet now and runs much better.

Try one of these guides to see if one is similar to your Toshiba. It will help you to get to the fan.

As for finding a fan, try, eBay or Amazon. I'm sure one is available to purchase.

Also, checkout this forum on loud Toshiba fans.

If you change to a new fan then it's best to also clean the core of the CPU with some isopropyl alcohol.
