Hi, I'll be honest I know nothing about computers so if any answer could be simplified for a computer idiot. Anyways, Lately I have been getting the blue screen of death as I read on google. I restored my system settings to about 3 weeks ago and It's definitely slowed it down. Also my computer fan is running extremely loud more regular then I feel it should be. I cleaned it out with air and removed a bunch of dust about a week ago. It helped a lot. Today it's started getting out of control again. I downloaded an app that tracks your computer temperature and fan speed and since I am completely new to computers I don't know how to properly read it. It shows like this:

Fan1: 2157 RPM

Fan 2: 1400 RPM

Temp 1: 43C

Temp 2: 69C

Temp 3: -128C

HDO: 29C

GPU: 53C

Core: 65C

I noticed my computer fan looks like it has some dust that has built onto it that the air compressor couldn't remove. Could this be a cause of this? What is the best solution to get rid of it since it's behind some objects I can't get in and tight to clean the actual petals of the fan.


EDIT: If anybody needs more details let me know I'd be more then happy to help.
