Accessing the heat sink to clean it

\015 I have an overheating problem on a Toshiba Equium A210-17i. I have managed to get to the stage of removing the keyboard but can't find any manuals on accessing the heat sink and fan to clean them.\015

Answers :

It is best not to tear apart a laptop unless you know what you are doing. just touching the inside you can transmit an electrical current from walking. it builds up and static shock happens then your computer is fried. i recommend a cooling pad for it. if that doesn't help then have it taken in and looked at. most places will do a cleaning service for a reasonable price.
