I really hate you Compaq! I friend of mine has a Compaq laptop that is slow and shutting down sporadically. This is usually due to dust in the fan. So I offered to clean it. I’ve done this a bunch of times before, so hard can it be.
Turns out it can be extremly hard if the manufacturer wants it to be. Normally you just unscrew one plate at the bottom and vaccum it. But not with this machine. I had to completely dissassemble the entire computer. Luckily I had a youtube video to follow.
Now I just hope I can put it all back together. Stupid Compaq!
