Stick hoover nozzle up against the air exit and set on mid-power. It should shift the worst of the dust.

I might get ticked off for suggesting this, but when you can't easily remove bits to get inside, it's about the best option.

The expensive option is to take it to a laptop service engineer who can probably strip it down to get to the fans.

yeh, i was thinking about it but wasnt sure. And i didnt particularly want to go to an engineer but only as a last resort.

I often clean desktop fans this way if I don't want to open the case. It cleans the grills and blades pretty effectively.
