Anyone got a Toshiba P30 Satellite? Just wondering if you can get at the fans to clean them?

Can of Compressed Air & the nozzle of a hoover works well.

You may get a bit of dust out, but if you smoke or depending where it's used you will not do much with air or a vac. as the above are sticky And the Laptop will need part dismantling

What problems are you having that makes it so necessary for you to attempt to dismantle your P30?

If you feel confident here but it's a complete tear down manual , you may not need to do it all

The way to go, is first remove the strip just below the screen. Should slide to one side on most laptops, look for a pin hole at the back edge to release it the fan is in the duckting thing with CPU heatsink. You may have to remove the screen just pry the cover clips over the hinges from the front with a thin knife so you can get at the screws. there will be a plug from the screen at both ends it only goes on one way

The laptop keeps shutting down presume that its overheating. I have bought a coolpad but still making little difference. I just wanted to clean the fans but looking at what you have to do I might have just changed my mind.
