So i realised my Laptop kept getting hot even when i was doing very simple tasks so i decided to disassemble it and give the fan and vents a proper cleaning.
As you can see below, the temperature went as high as 73c just browsing the net and watching movies.
1st of all you need some tools
A small – medium paintbrush (plastic bristles)
Small and Medium Phillips Screw Driver
Small Flat head screw driver
yeah the cell phone was a joke but doing all this work you may need some music
Now its time to get down to business
1st remove your battery
Then unscrew the panel Covering The RAM, HDD WIFI adapter etc (you will need to use the flat head to help prise up the side exposed after removing the battery
Next you remove the RAM module(s)
Then Remove your hard drive
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, remove the wires connected to the wifi adapter (be very gentle here as you may damage it) remove the screws after….then the adapter (obviously lol)
Now its time to remove the Keyboard…but not so fast there is a little work to be done.
Right nearby the Wifi adapter you removed; there was a screw with a keyboard symbol beside it…yeah you guessed it take that guy out then do what is illustrated in the pictures that follow the one directly below this one.
If you look carefully at the picture below, you will see 6 screws you need to remove in order to get this top panel off. Go ahead and take em out.
~ Side Note By now you should have figured out you should be grouping and labeling your screws (yes i deliberately didn’t say anything until now so you could learn from this mistake if you plan to do this again or disassemble another laptop)
After doing all that above you should be all set right?
Wrong there was a hidden screw at the base of the machine i forgot to remove earlier (gave me hell to figure out what was holding in the bottom left corner of the panel too -_-)
Well hi there dirty fan
Ok back back to business. Remove the cable that connects the LCD to the mainboard as indicated in pictures 2-4.
Now, remove the screws shown in picture 1 and repeat this process for the right section of the screen. Then lift it up and outward (watching out for those little wires that were connected to the Wifi adapter.
Now you once “whole” g6 should look something like this
Now its time to remove the speakers
now flip over and remove this little connection shown below by pulling upward gently but firmly
You are now free to lift out the mainboard and start working on the fan.
Remove the 4 screws securing the heatsink on top of the processor
then remove the screw as indicated in the second picture below
Oh cr4p look at that
dust was clogging up the airway (lol i wasn’t surprised this is the second time i have done this to my machine in 6 months)
Well thats all folks thanks for reading. Now all you have to do is retrace your steps to reassemble your machine~ Good luck with that
Below are the new Temperature readings for my system. Do you spot any differences?
