Simply follow ZMaster's guide. My aim was to reach and clean the CPU fan.
i know it a little bit lateWOOOOOW thats looks SO clean compared to mine,,, by the way using your guide,, been looking for over a week for something to explain how to get to the heatsink, I'd taken out all the screws out of the bottom hard drive cd rom, battery an could not for the life of me figure out what was holding it in,,,, anyway i knew it was the heatsink cos both fan works but it still cut out at 84 or 86 c,,,,
now if i can just remember which srew goes where,,, ohhh dear oh dear...aint got a guide with pics for that have by any chance,,,, BRILLIANT by the way,,olyzhan
