How exactly to clean your laptop

Cleaning laptop case Cleaning the exterior portion of the laptop case can help keep the laptop looking new. The exterior case of a laptop can be cleaned by using a damp cotton cloth that has been dampened with water. It is not recommended that the exterior case of the laptop be cleaned with household cleaning solutions. However, if there is a substance on the laptop that cannot be cleaned with water, we suggest using rubbing alcohol.
Cleaning case openings
If dust, dirt, hair, or other substances are in the case openings, it can prevent air from getting into or out of the laptop. This can cause the overall heat of the laptop to increase, and in some cases may also cause such issues as random reboots.
Look for laptop openings where the laptop draws in cool air from outside or blows out any hot air from the inside of the laptop. These openings are usually on one of the sides, the back, or the bottom of the laptop. Dust, dirt, hair, or other substances can almost always be removed easily using a cotton swab and/or compressed air.
Warning: If you're using compressed air to clean the openings that have fans within them, it's possible that the amount of air blown on the fans can cause them to over spin, damaging or destroying the fan. To help prevent this issue, place something in-between the fan blades, such as a toothpick.
Cleaning laptop keyboard
Like almost everything else on a laptop, a keyboard is also different from the standard computer keyboard. With many laptop keyboards the keys cannot be completely removed. Therefore, we suggest cleaning the keyboard by using the same damp cloth you used to clean the exterior case of the laptop. In addition, compressed air can be used to spray any dust, dirt, or hair from in-between the keys.
If you've spilt something onto the laptop keyboard (like a soda) that's causing the keys to stick and cleaning it does not help we suggest that you have the laptop repaired since the keyboard cannot be replaced.
Cleaning laptop mouse (touchpad)
Cleaning the laptop touchpad can help improve the look of the laptop and also many times will help improve the responsiveness of the touchpad. To clean the touchpad surface, use the same damp cloth used to clean the exterior of the laptop.
Cleaning LCD display
Additional information about cleaning LCD and flat panel displays can be found on our main cleaning page.
Cleaning internal laptop components
Cleaning the inside of a laptop computer can be a difficult task. However, in some situations, it may be necessary because of excessive dust and/or dirt buildup within the computer, such as on the processor's heatsink.
Unfortunately, however, because of the complexity often involved in disassembling the laptop to reach many of these areas, Computer Hope cannot provide this information online for every laptop ever made. If you believe after cleaning your computer that it is still overheating because of dust and/or dirt buildup, we suggest taking the laptop to an authorized repair center.
Other cleaning information and help
Additional information and help with cleaning other portions of computers as well as discs and other computer related peripherals can be found on our main cleaning page.

How to remove casing

This depends on the laptop. On some laptops the casing is simply clipped together and it is just a case of being careful, others it is a case of the screws are hidden underneath circular suspension pads which are no bigger than a nail head and help to allow airflow underneath the laptop. If this is the case try removing one with a flat head screw driver to see if you find a screw. Other laptops the screws are in plain sight, some laptops are relay annoying though they have no screws and no clips and are literally heat sealed together. You will know if you have a laptop like this because you will not be able to see a thin line the size of the edge of a piece of paper around the side of the laptop. To open a laptop like this use a flat head bit for a soldering iron at 55 degrees c and go around the sides of the laptop were you would expect the line to be and it just opens up.

Caution: Fumes given off from the plastic on laptops are HIGHLY TOXIC always do this when using a high power extractor fan or in open air.

The port where my adapter goes is broken so my adapter won't work trying to replace or repair it but can't get the case open.

I have not heard of this laptop before.

But in most cases, it may be a hidden screw that is restricting you from opening the case.

Check under stuck on black stubs on the bottom of your laptop, in the battery compartment and on the sides of your laptop.

Also, with laptops never yank at to open it. There may be a short wire that needs disconnecting before completely removing the casing.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop and I need to replace the keyboard.

The laptop opens up by prying the two halves of the case apart, but you have to be careful. The bottom of the case has to be pressed inward while inserting a small flat tool (a small screwdriver will work, but can damage the case). If you can picture this: The bottom of the case has some very small tabs that the top of the case snaps over. This is why I say when prying you should be applying the pressure so the bottom of the case is pushed inward with the tool while the top is pushed outward. There are maybe 10 or so of these little tabs around the case. I use a plastic tool that does the job--a cuticle stick that women use to work on their nails works fairly well.

If I've answered your question correctly, be sure to rate the solution, please.
