Question about HP (344872-001) Laptop Cooler, Cooling Fan
I cleaned the dust and cat hair out of my fan and now it does not turn. I used canned air to blow the dust out, and tweezers to grab the visible fuzz and hair. The laptop is about 13 months old and no longer under warranty. I have not had any other issues with it, and has not overheated and shut itself down yet without the fan running, but I also haven't tried to make it do anything strenuous like play Half Life 2 or Guild Wars.
What is the best way to fix it? Can I fix it myself? Will it be expensive to fix? Am I at risk of burning out my video card or mother board? ...Did I kill it?
Hey guys, i just had the exact same problem with my fan. What i did to fix it, was that opened it up, got to the fan and simply gave it a couple of swirls, and after not running for half a year, the fan suddenly worked again. When i had it opened up i simply used a vacuum cleaner to, to get the dust from within the laptop. I used this video to open the laptop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbSSnAZYc0I&feature=related.. I have no experience doing this sort of thing, but it is easily done, just takes a mere 30 min. Regards Nils, Denmark

Open the fan sticker Add 5 to 10 drops of isopropile or gasolin or petrol to there...
glide the fan...
wait for 3-5 min.
now connect the fan again to laptop.
