View Full Version : G74Sx cooling system issues

My G74Sx is about a year old, and recently started clicking back where the fan is. I took a look at a couple of threads about taking the case off to fix the issue, and I'm a little apprehensive. Has anyone encountered this issue before and if so is there a fix? Case and hardware are still stock.

Try a few blasts from a can of compressed gas in the fan intakes and exhausts to see if it silences the clicks.

i guess you clean fan first, if not help, you will take case off to fix if you can.

Yes, I have previously tried compressed air, removing the back panels to clean under there and blow the compressed air into the fan from that direction. I saw the thread for reducing speaker vibration, and those images were very helpful. Do you know if there are any tech manuals out there? I haven't been able to find any tech specific manuals around. I havent taken apart a laptop since my old 2003 dell...
