  1. Take the side panel off your computer, and look at the fan to see if it spins. :sarcastic:
  2. this is a laptop you should fell some air on the vent on the side of the case and the fan pull fresh air from the bottom ,when was the last time you dust off the fan with a compressed air can ?
  3. Ahh, i see.

    I'd recommend that you take it apart and dust it thoroughly. The fan may be clogged up with dust.
