I wouldn't, since it works. I took apart a completely broken old laptop and it was next tom impossible, plus I completely destroyed half of it.

. I'm with 7 on this. Laptops are hard enough to get back together when they are in good shape. I try using an external fan before I'd tear it apart.

hmmm... See if you can take out the keyboard and work on the fan from there, make sure to use ESD protection!
