yah,. im thinking the same, i got idea, im gonna connect securely my vacuum cleaner to the went that goes hot weather out of laptop from it, and turn vacuum cleaner full power to suck air out of laptop at full power (1800W lol) and left like that like 10 minutes. that should maybe do the job i think. ofcourse i will turn laptop off and put battery out. i dont think that should damage laptop or anything

I would still use compressed air as well, try the crevice tool at the exhaust and the air can with nozzle at the intake, do bursts of air to break up the dust. Turn keyboard upside down or on side and blast air but be careful as you can dislodge the key covers with too much air pressure on some lappies.

Hey guys, sorry for late reply, but the idea about sucking dusts with air using vacuum cleaner, worked! i connected securely my carpets vacuum cleaner with transparent vide sticky tape to laptops went and turned the cleaner at full power and left like that about 10 minutes. After that laptop case was cold cold... because of fast air sucking... But now, my laptop do not owerheats no more i can play NFS World and laptop stays on! hehe (used to shut down). so there, thats nice way how to fix it without opening case, or speding money on cooling pad, witch one also takes place if u travel.. =)

Thanx all for help and Product FRED for the idea :)
