......I am a relative novice/rookie pc user and have never attempted anything like this before.
I am also a little concerned about a comment made to me by a former friend (who I fell out with a a while back!) who is a computer engineer. He told me previously that my model of notebook, Samsung NP3530 EC, is notoriously difficult to dismantle.
I feel the need to clean the inners because I just blew gently into the vents and some dust blew out, although the fan is working ok still and I am not over-heating.
Is this a classic case of 'if it aint broke, don't try to fix it', or is this something I can pretty safely attempt myself? I haven't got the right screwdriver to remove the hard drive underneath, but will go and buy these before going ahead with my plan to clean...if I do! I have also found some YouTube tutorials I could refer to, but none that cover my exact make and model of device.
Can anyone offer me any sound advice on what I should do? It does seem the inners are contaminated with dust and I don't really want the expense of taking my pc to an engineer to clean. Besides, I love learning about these things myself! I have cleaned out and serviced 2-way radios and TV remotes successfully in the past, but not a computer.
