    Just a note, I have a laptop. It's not all I have to do is screws/clips/locks on the sides of the fan. It's embedded in the case.

    I've done the same google search, as I mentioned before, these are not my exact model, which has some unique differences. Specifically, their instruction to remove the keyboard does not work for me as screws are in different places and I don't want to remove screws from my computer without being positive about what they belong to.

    This one says: How to clean the inside of a Pavilion dm4?

    It's link to the Maintenance and Service Guide for the DM4 which has explicit instructions on taking it apart. Should give you what you need.

    If you're still leery about doing this take it to a repair shop and have them do it for you.

    Thanks for the link. That's not my exact model, even still, but I think I might be able to figure it out. Unfortunately, I have to remove over a dozen components just to get to the fan. It's just not worth it to me. I spent the ten bucks on the compressed air -- I'll blow it in the vents and see what I can do there. But I don't feel a pressing need to tear apart the computer. Any advice to the contrary? Fan repair starts at 75 bucks (at least from what I can find around here in MN) and I really want to avoid that.

    If it was my laptop, I would disassemble it then remove the heat sink (fan & radiator) from the CPU and GPU (usually the same piece). Clean off the old thermal paste and apply a new layer. Clean everything else real well then reassemble.

    At the temp it's currently running at something is going to die, probably sooner that later.

    Thanks Rich,
    I'll try to get that done this weekend. I can see the logic in what you're saying. Where can I get thermal paste?

    Most any computer store has it. Arctic Silver 5 is one of the best.

    Sounds good. I've got that in the mail as well. I'm going to try this this weekend, will update on how it goes. I'm a little bit leery, but I just can't stomach the repair cost of stores around here, which mostly seem to be 'virus cleaners' and not really guys who would have any more technical experience with this than I do. I found a teardown PDF from HP that covers my model, so I'm going to go forward with that and just document everything very slowly. I don't have any anti-static stuff -- is that important and is there anything I can do easily without having to buy a strap?
