    They won't, and forget the cooling pad, it will do nothing of the air circulation is clogged.

    If you can figure out how to use Windows, you can figure out how to disassemble the computer. Take out all the screws you see underneath, remember the long screw goes by the VGA connector; undo the short screws under the battery, note the two screws on the inside of the hinge are larger threads. Remove the hard drive, slide out BDrom, angle out bottom from the BDrom side, push sideways to clear VGA connector, watch for wireless switch.

    Hi all, I have been out of the loop for a while, I don't use my laptop nearly as much as I used to, but I still love it. I have been using my Asus Transformer 10" tablet a lot just because it much more portable than the laptop and it is something different than Windows to play with. I started scanning through some of the posts a bit. I just updated mt IRST drivers, thanks JamesD I saw the link in one of your posts. I also made sure my SSD drive has current firmware. I am currently downloading the latest Nvidia drivers so I can update those too.

    It's hard to believe the f series thread got this long and it's great to see familiar names on here still. I'm going to try to check here more often so I don't miss so many posts.

    OK guys, I think I'm gonna do it. Can you tell me which parts (and how - with what) should I clean when I have it open? What do I have to remove to get as much of dirt out as possible? Do I need any special materials or tools? And - after the full cleanup - would a good quality cooling pad be a good investment for keeping the VAIO as quiet as possible for as long time as possible? Or is it just a waste of money? Thank you! :)

    Hello, I have a Sony Vaio VPCF12M0E and I would like to buy a cooler, because it is overheating. I have narrowed it down to 4 coolers: CoolerMaster NotePal U2, CoolerMaster NotePal U3, Zalman ZN-2000 & Zalman ZN-3000U. Can anyone recommend which would be the best? (Sorry if this is the wrong thread to ask this)

    I would suggest strongly undoing the two tiny black screws on the outside of the fan housing, so that when you blow on the vent the dust can escape.
