My Time A520-K7 (Arima) runs hot and occasionally shuts down. Took it to my local PC shop who suggested that it might need a clean out, but they were unable to figure out how to open the case ! Can anyone tell me the sequence of screws to remove ? Thanks in anticipation...

Thanks again yabadaba, your 2nd post gave sufficient clues. Removing 2 screws on the hinge covers & 2 long screws from the bottom allowed removal of the panel above the keyboard, keyboard slides out, remove cover panel below exposes cooling system. Vanes of LH cooler were well clogged. Problem solved.
