Answers :

I have this laptop to, I disarmed totally, do screws from bottom then take out keybord it has some pins facing the screen side with a little flat screwdriver you move them, then one screw holds the DVD unit, then do all screws around the keyboard, to open the case on the battery you have like other clips, from the is pretty straigth foward, CMOS battery is near the ram area and it orther to get to it you need to undo the screws on the motherboard. Also had some problems with the windows not restaring and the problem was one the rams broke or get damaged and always go to recovery and then blue screen.
\015\012!The most important the fan problem is that need a BIOS updated, you go to sony, vio model and look for the driver is the version R0140X6 here is the link http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGN-FJ170 I hope this little guide work and good luck.
