Question about Computers & Internet
The fan makes a heck of a noise, I think it needs replacing. How do I open the machine to get at the fan and see if it needs cleaning and/or replace it?
Do not attempt to open your laptop unless you are sure of what you are doing.
It will be held together with a number of small screws and clip together plastic.
very easy to break unless you are use to taking laptops apart.
You really need to find a local laptop repair shop and get a quote.
In the interim there a re a few things you can do.
Buy a can of compressed air and blow the vent with this. This will remove any build up of dust and small foreign objects. Also if you can see the fan a tiny squirt of WD40 on the fan may help.
BUT!!!! Make sure you do not soak any components in WD40 and be careful you don't get any liquid inside the laptop.
The best way do it is have the laptop held so that the vent is pointing down and squirt the WD40 upwards so any excess immediately drips away from the PC.
Please let me know how you get on.
