HP G61 Laptop - Cleaning dust

Hi,

 

Does anyone have a guide or some steps into how to clean the dust from the fan in my laptop.

 

Don't want to just dive striaght in as I know everything inside a laptop is very compact and I will more than likely cause more problems.

 

Basically my fan is going crazy without anything really running on my laptop.

 

This will then cause it to go VERY slow when I do decide to use it.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers David.

 

I'll pick up some canned air tomorrow and get this done.

 

Is it not recommended to actually unscrew the bottom of the laptop and using a light cloth wipe the dust/dirt away from the fan?

Hi,

 

You're welcome Smiley Happy

 

Compressed air can be pretty effective at removing dust from the fan and intake vents.

 

You can disassemble the notebook if you wish, but I wouldn't recommend it if you haven't done this before - if you do want to try this, here's your Maintenance & Service Guide.

 


Best regards,
