Lube (yes, no jokes) for Laptop Fan

Recommended Posts

Help! My fan on my 3 yr old Acer Aspire 5000 is sounding like a bike spoke with a playing card clothespined to it. I took it apart and cleaned it really good (chunks of dust) and it sounds much quieter and is not overheating anymore. However, it still is noisy. I want to try lubing the fan before I give up and replace it altogether. What kind of lubricant does one use on those tiny fuckers?

Any suggestions? I want to be sure to lube just my fan and not the motherboard or anything else that might get contaminted if I don't do this properly.
