Thanks. Just a note, if you own a Dell Inspiron 640M, you will have to pretty much take apart the entire laptop to get to the fan casing. Stupid design, but I guess it all works.
I took out the Microprocessor Thermal-Cooling Assembly and that was just covered with dust. Cleaned that out.
Removed the fan, and blew out the vent on the bottom so the crud went out of my laptop, instead of into it.
One problem I did have was my palm rest, as I was removing it, I broke these plastic posts that held the actual bolts that the nuts screwed into. That was a real pain, and there should have been a warning. I got most of the screws back in except one, hope that doesn't totally screw up my computer, but I am *NOT* going back in there to get that f#*%#er out again unless I have to, or you kind folks on this board command me to.
