Looks fairly straightforward, each fan has 3 screws, push out and replace. I've done the same with plenty of older laptops.
Old/re-used thermal compound or faulty thermal pads could also cause issues, always replace the thermal compound when you remove the heatsink and inspect the pads.
Yeah I took all the screws out and when I went to pull it up it's is almost as though its super glued to the mother board. I kept rewatching and re checking screws . I didnt want to pry it up and crack something.
I bought it brand new so I know no one else has pulled it up before. Probably just gonna have to ride this out until March to get a new laptop.
I've had it for 2 years and never dusted it so I probably broke something from not cleaning it.
