Question about Computers & Internet
Perhaps you should reconsider removing the fan. You may find your particular Model/Brand of laptop's fan, not that hard to access.
The pathway that leads air to the Cooling Fan, may be of a design where it has a filter. A piece of foam-like material, essentially. The pathway I'm describing is the Cooling Duct.
Using a can of compressed air for computers was/is an excellent idea.
However if I may,
1) It needs to be sprayed only in the Intake Cooling Duct, not the Exhaust Duct.
Where air is drawn in is the Intake Cooling Duct.
2) The filter I lightly described is at the end of the Intake Cooling Duct.
Dust, dirt, hair, (Animal and people), carpet deodorizer, you name it, can build up over time, and compressed air alone cannot remove it.
The area needs to be accessed, and the foreign debris physically removed.
Q-tips, a small brush, and compressed air are used.
To show some examples:
1) Moderately easy:
(You can click on the photos to enlarge)
The Cooling Fan assembly is near the top.
The laptop is disassembled down to the middle section, to access the Cooling Fan.
The laptop has to be completely disassembled, (Motherboard removed), in order to access the fan.
If you wish I could do my level best to guide you step by step, and if available be able to post diagrams, photos, and a Service Manual.
Just post in a Comment.
