i have a p200 laptop and earlier today i was using the laptop with battery only for the first time and i used it from 100% to ~19%. before i went to charge it, i took compressed air and blew it all over the fan vents. you know how sometimes, the compressed air solution sometimes gets released instead of the compressed air? well it happened a couple of times. (it's some chemical liquid that dries super quickly) and i think it went into the fan..
when i turned on the computer to resume some work, the computer was going super slow and was at 100% processor utilization. eventually, it just shut itself down with no warning. i turned it on again and it was slow again and then shut itself down again.
this time i lifted the laptop while booting it and it turns out that the fan wasn't running anymore. occasionally, when i open something like firefox, there's this loud fan noise meaning that it was spinning very fast to blow the heat produced from the cpu but now it doesn't do even that anymore. the fan jjust doesn't run at all..
any possible solutions??
i recently lost a laptop due to integrated graphics failure so i hope this won't screw me over again.
ps i can still turn it on and kill some startup process i dont need and it'll work fine for however long i can use it not intensively. i never tried watching HD video or editing a photo, or using youtube because im scared it'll crash again due to extensive heat.
