Cans of compressed air should be available at any Wal-Mart or computer supply store (Best Buy, Office Max, Office Depot, or whatever your local equivalents are.)

Will the laptop shutdown if the cpu is overheating?

There was a recall on those lap tops a few years ago because of faulty fans. Read THIS. This Toshiba is one of the easiest lap tops to replace the fan, read THIS. This is a cheap and easy fix, do it before it burns down and become a paper weight.

Yes I know that but that's about a faulty dc harness. I know it's not because of that. But I bet the recall will not work now because it has been years.

Yeah, it'll shut down. The problem will be, you won't be able to turn it back on, because the CPU will be fried.

I once watched a video showing that Intel cpus will shutdown when the fan is taken off before its fried but AMD wont. Is that true?

To be perfectly honest, I don't know. I suppose it's possible. But, as your sig line says, "better safe, than sorry," even though it could already be too late.

I finally got it spinning! Yay! I hope now everything will work. But for some reason, no dust came out or maybe it just seemed like there is no dust but there was a lot of dust. Well at least everything is now working smoothly. I could hear the fan right now.
