I have a Acer TravelMate 2500 laptop that I purchased new in 2004 and now gets hot and crashes. I need to clean the fan, can someone tell me how to access the laptop and clean. I have tried to remove the uper top of the keyboard but although I can see the fan, I can't access it here. Hope you can help, Many Thanks from David HB

From the outside I would imagine is the safest way,
Are there other fan other than the one so obious from the back?
I know not- perhaps there is.

Hi Jack, thanks for your surgestion. Their is only the one fan and just about see that it's full of dust. Is it worth taking it apart.
