The "noisy" might be the real issue.
Fans running close to limits, and that limit may be !FAILURE!, are noisy.

Or in my case the fans become over-stressed due to an accumulation of
cat hair, which was also impeding air flow and making the laptop run hot.

Use an un-bent paper clop to hold the fan blade still while apply a
vacuum cleaner. You did turn the laptop off first before turning ut
upside down and introducing it to the vacuum cleaner, didn't you? :-)
