Well then at least he can take some compressed air and blow it into the vents. That should help. Also make sure he knows not to use it on bed sheets and things that will block the fan.

That's too bad. If he's a rich noob I guess have him (ack...) take it into a PC repair shop. If he's a poor noob tell him that it's going to fry unless he finds the guts to fix it.

Laptop heatsink fans seem to collect a lot of dust due to their location.

I have an HP Pavilion and the website has repair guides avaliable in PDF format for you to download and read. Find the make and model of the laptop then check their website out.

Anyway, the repair guide for mines shows me how to disassemble the laptop so I can get to the motherboard and components. Take a can of Dust Off with a straw, stick it past the fan blades, and blow through the heatsink. You'll be surprised at how much dust builds up in there after four months. You can also remove the heatsink and throw some AS5 on; most laptops just have a sticky "gum like" thermal pad. Be sure to clean off the fan blades as well if they are clogged and add some oil to the bearings if you want.



Yep; that's a Delta Fan in there with a good layer of dust built up on the blades. Either I have a very dusty house or I should keep my laptop off the floor.

PS If you do remove the fan; don't forget to plug it back in. Last time I serviced my laptop, I forgot to reconnect the fan and realized that just right after I finished putting the unit back together. Had to take it apart again which was quite irritating considering that I have to remove about 20 different screws.

If the system is still under warrenty, have him send it to Dell and have them fix it. If not, the only thing to do would be open it up and clean it out.

no its not under warranty anymore but we cleaned it a little bit and it worked for a day and now its back down to 2.4ish we cleaned it good so im assuming he needs a laptop cooler, which i plan to build because prebuilt ones are mostly silent, but he doesnt care about sound that much so im going to build him a nice powerful one!
