Answers :

Get a can of compressed air used to clean computers.

\015\012Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.
\015\012
Do this outside with glasses on.

\015\012laptops should never be used on soft surfaces eg carpet, beds, cushions, etc. Most newer laptops also have more cooling slots / openings. this leads to a fater build up of gunks inside..
\015\012
\015\012Best option is to buy a GOOD 3 fan notebook cooler.
\015\012
\015\012If you are comforatble opening the laptop then that is a better option for cleaning but if not a good laptop repair shop could do this quite cheaply.

\015\012It is a common issue with newer laptops
Laptops do not have a fan on the power supply like a desktop does. I suggest you open your laptop and remove the fan, then blow it out as Bob suggested. As Lou also pointed out they can be tricky to get apart so use caution. You could be dealing with a dozen or more tiny screws but once you have the bottom off removing the fan is only a couple more screws and unplugging it. Be sure when you use the canned air you shake first, then spray once AWAY FROM THE PC to clear any liquid from the nozzle, then spray in short blasts to clean the components.
