Cleaning out the Y50?

2017-03-08, 21:17 PM

I am just wondering if anyone had a good idea of how to clean the bottom air grills. Mine has this ultra fine dust I can't seem to remove with air. Tried to blow it out from the inside, outside, etc. Tempted to take the cover, and soak it in a sink with mild soap at this point!

 

It just looks so dusty, so... ew.

 

Also, wanna clean the top of the housing, I presume it's called the basel. Where the [crappy] mouse sits, etc.

Hi Hazarath , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Your hardware manual have detailed steps on removing base cover but since opening the laptop may take advance steps , take note of your warranty coverage and better yet to inform technical support as anything that would get damage in the process may void it. 

 

Hope this help answer your query. 

Update us how best it would go for you. 

 

Regards

It is well out of warranty, and I know -how- to remove the cover, thank you.

 

And I also am not gonna pay to ship it out for a month or so to get a new cover, or something anywho, as it is not a warranty issue; the laptop is still fully functional.

 

So, my question stands; how would it be best to clean it? And, I might note as I am not modifying any of the 'Do not tamper' screws, thus, it is not really a warranty issue, just an aesthetics question. Not like I am asking how to slap in a GeForce 1090, and duct tape it to the case, something extremely... inappropriate.

Hi Hazarath , 

 

Greetings. 

 

Good to know that there are no warranty issue that maybe limiting us. 

Same reason why the hardware manual are readily provided, as this would guide users on their upgrades , cleanups and disassembly on their own. 

 

Here is also the lenovo service training resources and article guide .

 

Basic idea in cleaning is to remove accumulated foreign bodies without changing much on the working pieces of the machine where compressed air cans would be most helpful . Filters on the vents are also easily cleaned up with microfiber clothes aside from soft brushes.

 

Sample video here as reference guide.

 

I believe you are all set for this.

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

I did try air, actually depleated an entire can into it. I can try the cloth. I'll do that when I replace the keyboard next week, I suppose. [Broke the shift key, I got dis, brah]

 

Thanks for the help, and I'll update when I clean it. Maybe I'll think of something unorthidox that will help those in the future.
