    Default OVERHEATING laptop

    Had my dell Inspiron 1501 for 1 and half years now, it recently is deciding that it turns itself off at random times i suspect its overheating and the fans maybe is due for a change or dust? How could i check the problem and also how do i take it apart? many thanks
