    Did you check youtube for a video on disassembly? Once open you can use compressed air to blow out. Always secure fan blades so the air doesn't over spin.

    If you have used it for 10 years without cleaning then there is definitely going to be dust inside it. The problem is, often heat cannot be always noticed from the outside. It can happen eternally without really realizing how hot it is.

    You have to clean your room from the dust as well as that dust can get inside your laptop and is not good for health.
    You can open the laptop, there should be some screws at the back.

    If you have a fan blower, it is safe to blow air. I use an electric air mattress that is used for airbeds. Don't use electric air vacuum that sucks as that isn't safe.

    You can use a antistatic kit or touch metal before cleaning. You can then use a thick tissue paper, cloth or a brush to carefully clean out dust from the fans and also if your graphic chipset and CPU also has a cooler inside your laptop, clear these too. And after that you can just blow with an electric air pump one more time. Just make sure you clear out all the visible dust that you see. The graphics card chipset and the CPU heatsink are usually the areas that accumulate the most dust and heat.

    Thank you so much for the tips BLaZiNgSPEED.

    I appriciate the advice on how to check and clean properly. I feel foolish for not checking earlier to see that said cleaning could be a solution.

    I have a friend who owns an antistatic kit, and the type of fan you are talking about. He can also probably help me to give it a proper and thorough cleaning.

    When I said don't use compressed air that was in reference to blowing in. If you blow in you can get stuff lodged in and even inhibit fan.

    With compressed air we want to be sure we can blow out.

    I am sorry for not reply sooner. Just a lot going on right now. I just wanted to say that giving my laptop a good cleaning solved the problem. I also wanted to thank everyone again for all their helpful suggestions.
