    Hi there, Speedfan has been reporting that at peaks, my laptop goes to 100*C, idles at about 60 and is usually at 75-88*C. Most online fan cleaning guides make the process look relatively straight forward - the fan pops right out like the battery or hard drive. On my M400 though it doesn't look so easy. Can anybody advise me how to access it to clean? Thanks.

    Are you sure that the temperature that you are getting is right? 100 seems too hot. I would look under the keyboard for the fan.

    Hello

    I doubt the CPU temperature reaches 100°C. In this case the notebook would power off to protect the hardware.

    But generally speaking cleaning the fan and heatsink is no problem. Everything what you need is compressed air spray to blow out the dust from cooling ventilators. Therefore it’s not necessary to disassemble the notebook.
