Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook ?
How do I open up the laptop to clean the fan? Thank you
You don't need to open the case. Go to staples or office max etc and pick up a couple of cans of computer cleaning compressed air. The air comes at at high pressure, just point it in the ventilation slots and give it short bursts to blow the dirt, dust and hair out of the fins of the heatsink.
