You probably get a large number of these threads so I apologise, but I'm currently experiencing problems with my HP G61 notebook PC which uses the operating system Windows 7. I was playing a game earlier when my computer started becoming increasing hot like it had been for a while now and was blowing increasing amounts of warm air. I decided to gently blow into my side vent (it seemed a good idea at the time) and the noise/air blowing came to an abrupt end and has never re-started. (My BIOS is set to fan always in use.) I haven't cleaned inside my computer before as I am worried I may harm something inside. I would like to add that speedfan brings up 0 fans to monitor. So my questions are:
1) Is this a simple case of taking my laptop to a computer repair shop and getting my laptop cleaned inside or is the likelyhood that my fan is busted? If It is the latter, what sort of price should I be looking to pay for the repairs?
2) I have since rebooted my laptop and have set my power settings to the lowest possible power saving settings, will it be fine to continue use of my laptop without 'frying' the motherboard causing further damange? (Obviously just surfing the internet rather than returning into my game.)
Thank you in advance.
