Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I have an HP Pavilon DV7 that was always running hot,
so I decided to get a can of compressed air and go to town on it. I removed the battery, unplugged the cord, and held down the power button for a few seconds. Then I cleaned out the heat sink, the fan, and cleaned out any port or vent I can find.
Power it up and it's running cooler. So cool, the fans not clicking on. Oh wait, now the fan wont work at all.
And every so often, my speakers let out an Audible pop.
I didnt do anything crazy to my laptop, what on gods earth cause my fan to shit the bed? can I easily replace it?
