Windows 7: How can I take the fan out of a laptop computer?

Hi! Yes, I see. No doubt that could be helpful. But I don't like the noise. One way I use to ensure that keeps cooler than otherwise - is to set my laptop computer on a slant, on my lap. I figure it gets more airflow that way. It's also a much more comfortable position to type on the computer, too, I've found.

Hi! No. I prop it up on my stomach. With the hinged side on my knees. That slanted position is much more relaxing for my hands then if I placed them on a flat position.

If you go to YouTube and search for the laptops make and model you will more than likely will find it.


Using words like tear down, clean or replace fan, may help.


I had 2 laptops that I had to take apart and had to remove all the screws on the back and then remove the back cover then remove the keyboard on one of them to get to the fan, I found both laptops how to disassemble videos with a YouTube search

The manual I gave a link for in post #5 has full instructions, but it's intended for support engineers.

It is always good to watch someone else do it before you have a go yourself.

One caution regarding blowing or sucking air thru the air vents on a laptop. You need to be careful that you don't cause the fan to spin too fast which could burn out it's bearings and cause the fan to fail prematurely.

So far, I've done it twice with no ill effects. But you warning is appropriate. It should only be considered as a last resort - entirely at your own risk!

Hi! I followed your advice, of going to Youtube, to watch and listen to advice on how to take my HP 635 laptop computer apart and then how to put it back together. This time, I had better success! And had my husband help a little, now and then. I got the fan out and got the thick dust off it and dusted out the computer as best as I could before starting to put it together again. I need a rest now though - so will work on it another day soon - not tomorrow though as we'll be gone too long. I am sending (as an attachment) a picture of my progress and what parts are left to put back - so you can see where I am in the process. And so you can maybe tell me if I've missed putting in a part before I got this far. Like that little square (just about 1" square) that has to be plugged in somewhere. If I've missed anything - of course, I'll have to take it apart again to get the missed part put in. Thanks for your efforts to help, so far!How can I take the fan out of a laptop computer?-reassembling-hp-635-computer.jpg

That looks like the Wireless LAN card (WLAN). If so, see page 48 in the manual (link in my post#5).
