Hi,

Get hold of some canned air and give it a good blow through the laptop vents. This will remove any dust lying about.

When using your laptop have it sat on a flat surface which allows for air to pass underneath and through the vents aswell.

How slow is your computer running? you may have other issues apart from a bit of dust. Try the above first tho.

Ok no probs,

Basic question, but is your fan running ok?

Have a look at task manager, what CPU % is your laptop running at when in idle (eg, no programs running)

Also have a look at your power management to see if this is still working.
