So, i have a alienware M17x laptop. Its about 2-3 years old. I have had to completely restore it about 5 times, and now im having problems with the video card, the fan and overheating. The video card is old and isn't what it used to be. The overheaing however is becoming the biggest problem. Literally 5 minutes after turning it on it sounds like a jets engine starting up and outputs a ton of super hot air. And i can not feel any air intake even though i have the laptop propped up. The fan is without a doubt dusty, and you can hear it turning and it vibrates the machine.
So my question is, what do? I am currently saving up for a new desktop, ~1000$. Yet, im a far way off. So in the mean time, what does anyone suggest to help fix my problems. It really effects my in game performance (running on lowest settings). Plz Help!
