Hey guys! I haven't been on this forum in years, nice to see it's still going strong.

As of late I've been having some serious issues with my gaming laptop.(I know I should I have a desktop :unsure: )

My laptop is an Asus N50VN-B1B
It has a Core2Duo P8600 CPU/4GB Ram/Nvidia 9650M GT

I've had the laptop for just over 2 years and the cooling module(fan?) seems to be dying on me, a few weeks ago it was making a whirling sound but lately I don't hear anything from it at all. I've installed Everest and it says that my see is only going 100RPM. If I blow out the fan with a can of air it goes about 800-1000RPM for an hour or two before dying back down to 100 again. I'm not really sure what to do here. The manufacturer's warranty has expired, I called up the E-store and asked to buy a new part but they don't have any in stock and don't plan on ever having any in stock, and blowing out the fan doesn't seem to help much. It seems like a huge waste to chunk a perfectly good computer due to the cooling module not functioning properly.

Any advice at all is greatly appreciated. The overheating has gotten so bad I can't play minecraft or even morrowind, if you help me you will so awesome in my book! :)

Thanks for reading
