Use the guide to remove the fan. Hold or block the rotor and gently blow out the fan with compressed air. Reinstall. While you have the computer open check for other dust bunnies etc. Good luck. Ralph

Thanks Ralph I will and let you know how it goes. Er.... maybe this is a silly question, but how do I know if I need to replace the fan? Thanks again


Two ways I know of--1. Does not move air--2. Makes noise. Good luck
