    Does the fan blow up or out side way? I have an useless cooling pad because the fan sucks in the air from the top and blows it out the side, but my laptop doesn't vent its exhaust down underneath, thus creating a vacuum around the intake and recycling hot air.

    WTH? That design seems asinine. How many laptops vent their heat out of the bottom?

    lol.... might you be able to take the fan off and flip it over? Is it possible a friend has already done this to you ;) ...

    It has two centrifugal fans. I tried splicing and switching the power supply wires to force them to spin in reverse, but it didn't work.

    The antec cooler seems to want to suck the heat away. Asinine.

    I got a good solution as well, $5 can of compressed air from an office store. Spray it into the fan and vents to clear out all the freaking dust. For bad laptops open it up and than use the compressed air, there it should be good as new when it comes to cooling since it is now not clogged with dust (which is quite easy to do on a laptop)

    If you really feel like it pop off the heatsink they have on it and replace the thermal paste with a better one.

    Opening the laptop and cleaning the area between the fan and vents of dust (and in general everywhere else) is best.
    Compressed air could push the dust further into the laptop, potentially causing damage in the long run - so I use this as a stop gap measure when it comes to laptops that require complete dis-assembly in order to reach the necessary components (I can't stand those who do this).

    That only helps so much when the laptop has a design defect of the heatsink/fan being too small.
