    hey, mabey try buying a cooling unit for the laptop.
    I had the exact problem, and within a week of using the laptop with the cooling unit, all the dust had gotten blown out.

    P.S (Make sure to dust yourself off after using, can make you look like you got dirt thrown at your pants :) )

    Alot of lint collects on the backside of the fins of the heat exchanger....usually back blowing with air and a straw will blow it off....you now have alot of lint around the fan of course....take a vacuum nozzle and hold it up against the holes on the bottom where the fan sucks in..run the vacuum for just a brief spell...just flip it on and turn it off a couple times..as to avoid static by the vacuum.

    On some laptops there is a small gap just before the fins after removing a bottom cover making cleaning a breeze.
