CPU fan, right? The fan is actually under the keyboard. There are 4 screws at the bottom of the case, labelled with a keyboard symbol. Once unscrewed, press the top of the keyboard (where the power/volume buttons are) downwards (i.e. in towards the palmrest) to free the keyboard. Then carefully disconnect keyboard connector. Once the keyboard has been removed, you should be able to remove the cpu heatsink. The fan is attached to the heatsink, to remove it just undo the screws holding it.
Hope this helps,
Good luck,

Hi Jenelle
I think we will need more information to be sure to fix this problem, like the model of the printer and are you trying to connect to it with USB cable or through network (with LAN or with wifi).

in most cases anyway make sure the wires are connected correctly (USB) and download the below link to identify and install your printer if it's not installed correctly.
press the identify now button after connecting it with USB.

Boot your laptop with the Windows installation DVD, and you can reset the password easily with this trick:

The tutorial requires a bit complicated steps. If you're a computer novice, you'd better call a friend who is a computer geek and ask him to help you remove the password.
