My laptop's fan is making a loud grinding sound. What does that usually indicate?

I'm surprised this laptop has survived thirty-one months so far, probably on around 70% of that time. It was on a recall list for a faulty motherboard which is prone to overheating, which is the most likely cause of the failure of the wireless card thirteen months ago.

Usually means that it's dying, or there's something blocking the fans from turning.

The cooler on my graphic card did the same thing before it finally died.

I hope it doesn't die. My desktop doesn't have an Internet connection.

Sounds more like a distant (But very loud) weed wacker. I think it's time to turn if off. :(
