Okay I'm having trouble reaching the cooling fan in my Acer Aspire 9423WSMi laptop. I know where it but I have no idea what screws I should be unscrewing, nor casing which I should be prying open. I only need to clean my fan of the dust and after many attempts to find a guide of some sort on google just to assist me in how to take the bottom of this thing apart I come to you guys.
Any words, pictures or websites you could give me would be very much appreciated

Yeah, it's placed in the top left corner (looking at the underneath) of the laptop.. I just don't get if I unscrew the whole things because there doesn't seem like there is any way to just unscrew some sort of panel to access it. I have tried to do this before, but the back of the whole panel got sort of stuck.

1. Unscrew the left part (Where your fan is).

2. Locate the fan and clean it.

It's a good idea to use compressed air to clean it

I can't get at the fan.. the back part of the plastic casing is stopping me from getting at it
