Ok so here's the situation. I own a big Asus N71JQ notebook that I love, it's about 2.5 years old. About a year and a half ago it started getting REALLY hot, causing slowdown, freezes and even random shutdowns. I took it in to a local computer repair shop and had them take a look at it. They opened it up and said it was filled with dust, the likely cause. So they clean it out and the thing works like new... for about six months. At that point the same thing happens and I take it back in, same exact thing. They clean it, bill me and instruct me to move it away from fans and vents that may be causing dust and dirty air to blow into the vent. I do just this... and yet now six months after that it's happening AGAIN. Super hot, slowdowns, everything. Anybody have any ideas? I can't afford to keep taking this thing in for cleaning. Is there any way for me to clean my laptop without dropping $80 or whatever the repair shop wants for it? I have no idea why this i happening, I've owned quite a few laptops and have never had any overheating or dust problems before. My house is clean and I frequently dust my computer desk so I'm kind of at a loss.
