A Tiny laptop with a fan problem
Remove top panel (one with the buttons).
Be gentle or the holding tabs will snap off.

Now, we meet the
infamous £69+VAT Heat Sink/Fan assembly.
WARNING: Some repair shops recommend a substitute fan and don't even realise that
the original fans blew air out of the side - top and bottom in and out the vents.
There is little point in blowing air top to bottom when the vent is on the side.
You will get very little, if any, CPU cooling.
Now, you need to remove the old heat sink to install the new one.
This is where the old fan used to live.
Remove the main CPU heat sink - a bit of
thermal compound will help
to keep the CPU even cooler. Apply when reinstalling CPU sink/fan.
Remove all the screws from the back and rear
Remove the top front panel - don't yank the cables. They are very delicate.
Disconnect the cable near the hinge and lift the LCD panel off
Remove the top keyboard surround.
Remove the CD/DVD
Remove the HEX bolts.
Remove the old heat sink
Install the new heat sink and test before you reassemble the unit.
If the fan fails to operate then you have a motherboard problem too.
Get a +5V from the USB. Make sure that
you install a sleeve over the soldered joint.
Reassemble the unit. Be sure to exactly follow the removal procedures in reverse.
