    I need a service manual or other instructions on how to open the case on my Sony Vaio VGN SZ440. The Sony website only has user guides which does not provide this info. I need to open the case to clean out the area around the fan and air intake. The computer is running very hot (99C!) and the fan is at full or 2nd speed at all times. Other blogs indicated that cleaning out the fan area helps the problem.
    Thanks

    Most times you can do this cleaning without opening the laptop, just get compressed air or a compressor and blow out all the dust.

    This site has some Sony manual but not for that exact model, but you may find one thats close: http://repair4laptop.org/disassembly_sony.html
