    my tx2500's fan is full of dust and that makes it get warmer than usually. is there any quick way to clean it?

    in my previus laptop, there was a dedicated cover for the fan, is there something like that or must i remove all screws and the full cover?

    thanks

    I can get a fair bit out just by holding a vacuum cleaner to the bottom vents!

    i always thought that compressed air put dust into processor and not take it out and that vacuum cleaner is not powerful enough, but i will have to try, thanks

    I always spray the compressed air in through the normal Air intake vent that way the dust is blown out through normal channels. It seems to work pretty well.

    Adda vacuum cleaner to the "exit" vent and you've got a good system at keeping the vent channels clear...

    just adding a thought.

    I've noticed alot more laptops coming in lately with no post issues. Each one had some form of matted junk in the exit of the heat spreaders. Preventing anything from escaping. Resembles dryer lint. I don't know how well a vacuum will do(never tried) but I know a high pressure air line cannot knock the stuff out. Requires a break down of the unit to remove it. Luckily the tx line is easy to take apart. Just take your time and follow anti-static precautions and you'll be fine.
