Yes, when dust builds up the fan cannot do it's job, this happens with games consoles, desktops and a lot with Lenovo Laptops using the system I posted above will help the pc run much quicker, not freeze and not shut down...
I do this at least every 6 months...

i have got de same problem with my Lenovo N200 0769. But I can't see a continuity by this problem. I tried to clean the fan but the fan was cleaner when a operating room. I also tried to update the Bios but i wasn't successful because i get en error (error code 5). Has someone an idea? I will describe the problem again. Sometimes the laptop is breaking off during the windows start up and shut down. It's like i would press the start up button. If i start the laptop after that i get a display an i can choose between "normal Windows startup"and "Startup repair". If i choose "normal start up" the laptop will break off again.Choosing the "Startup repair" the Lenovo care center comes up and is repairing the Startup. After this process I can start Windows in the normal way and it works. But sometimes the last changes at windows aren't available. (for example I installed MS Office and after the last startup repair the installation wasn't available).
Has someone an idea? Bios update doesn't work (error code 5) and a new installation of Windows Vista even doesn't work.
Thank you for your help.

I know nothing about Windows Vista..
But, you may want to check that it is either hardware related or software related.
In order to do so, download a Live CD version of a Linux operating system (Knoopix or Ubuntu comes to mind but there are Fedora and others available). Run the laptop with the live Linux (it won't do nothing to your disk unless you choose to install it, of course).
If the flaw is hardware related , you should notice the laptop shutting down ala Windows. Othewise it will run just fine.
Then you know what to do exactly !
Hope this helps.
P.S. of course, if the flaw lies in the disk drive, this won't tell you !
