    ahahah that's sick, im from Hamilton. anyway, i just took apart the lappy, and it didnt have a direct fan
    it was heatsinked to a bigger heatsink which gets cooled down by a fan
    i looked at it, spray some crap on it, my dad had some downstairs
    and then made sure everything was alright and closed it up again but i still have the problem X_X
