Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.
Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.
If you really must do it there are some good guides here.
An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.
Do this outside with glasses on.
You may also want to remove the hard drive and ROM drive.
Take a peek here for more ideas of what is involved.
There are a few are tips for various things in there.
DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand.
To make newer laptops last longer between cleaning a good 3 fan cooling pad is suggested.
never use a laptop on soft surfaces as the ventilation can act as a mini vacuum cleaner and encourage dirt build up.
Soft surfaces also block the vents causing fans to run more and burn out sooner.
Hope this gives you the information you need

it sounds like a problem with your harddrive. if you have an oem copy of your OS then you could do a chkdsk /r from this. If not then the harddrive will have to be removed and the chkdsk /r done from a data reader from another computer. Hope this helps, leave feedback

Try pressing the power button for several seconds (10-15). It should power off the laptop.
If not, unplug the charger and remove the battery for a few minutes. Then try to start it up again.

Please check the laptop for proper cooling. Check the battery condition also. Try with removeing the battery and work on AC power. Check.. if the laptop is working fine.. there might be battery problem.
