    Cleaning G53SX Fan


    I bought my G53SX-DH71 like 7 months ago and its temperature used to be really low but now it started to overheat.
    I spoke with the guy who sold me the notebook and he said it is the fan that is probably dirty. He said I could disassemble the computer to clean it but I have watched a video on youtube where the guy uses a hair drier to blow into the fan exit, a lot of dust came off... Here is the video:

    Can I do that?

    Thank you,

    Yes, but not with hot air....the hair dryer probably had a cold air only setting. Or use a vacuum cleaner.... can of compressed air...but best is to open her up and clean it....not hard just a few screws.

    The guy who sold me the computer said i would have to disassemble it completely in order to reach the fans...
    I am kinda worried that after taking it apart i wont be able to reassemble it, so the compressed air option is the best option in my case.

    I just have a problem now, how do I open the backpanel?? I tried watching a couple videos couldn't understand them.

    As far as I see from tutorials and YouTube videos, it is almost a nightmare to clean a G53 Cpu or Gpu fan (I have G53JW) which requires detaching many parts including screen cable and hinges. It is simply a nightmare, and I can't beleive that Asus has made such a crappy design which makes this notebook uncleanable ny a normal home user, it is not self-servicable. G73 is way easier as it has bigger backcover and also way easier to upgrade. Damn...
