I've been having video slowdowns for the past couple of months and I've been trying to look for the reason for this. I think I may have found it when I ran 3Dmark2003. The CPU test drops down sometimes when the notebook has been on for a while. I wanted to try to clean the heatsink (as I saw from other posts) but don't know how. I have a 5660 by the way. I already removed the 5 spring tension screws holding the fans and I don't know where to go next. I tried lifting the whole plate but it wouldn't budge and I'm afraid to force it. Can someone tell me if I need to remove the 3 small screws by the fan or do I just yank the whole thing out? Thanks.
