I have a vpcf12z1e vaio, bought about a year and 8 months ago. I really liked it, until approximately half a year a go, when its fan started to become very noise. At first I didn't even notice that it was louder, but about for about 2-3 months ago it started to sound like a a 747 jumbo fighting a turbulence. I can hear it through two closed doors in the place I live now!
But I could live with that. Until the laptop started turning off. At first I thought it was because of a game I was playing (in the beginning it only occured when I played with it), but then it quickly became obvious that it can happen any random time.
It took me quite long to realise that this is most likely because of dust gathered in the fan, which makes my baby overheat itself. So I took some screwdrivers to start and take it apart. The problem is now, that after an hour of trying I still haven't managed to remove anything else other than the cover above the hdd and the memory. It's freakishly impossible to take the back off!!!
Can someone tell me how should I do it or offer some other solution on how to clean the fan? I can't enjoy any movie now because of the noise and I can't play with most of my games cause the heat seems to degrade the performance of my laptop, and also shut it down regurarly!
