Try to get a can of compressed air and use it in the opposite direction of the normal air flow with the computer turned off. If that doesn't do it you can also carefully try a vacuum cleaner (sometimes they are so powerful, they can break the fan blades off though). If that doesn't work, someone will have to dissemble the notebook down to the fan area and see what is wrong.

Could you plese tell me if all g62 series use the same fan? The only # im able to retrieve from the case is 584037-001 but that doesnt seem to lead me to a specific model for this g62.

You don't need a lot of pressure to blow out the vents. Too much pressure can damage the fan.
Here is a link to clean the vents.
Let me know how everything goes.
