Laptop Maintanence (cleaning, new thermal paste)

Hi there,


I own a Asus G51J which has an Nvidia gtx 260m. Recently the laptop's GPU has been overheating (Ihave updated the BIOS, nvidia drivers etc).


I was wondering if Futureshop does cleaning and if needed, can apply a new thermal paste?

You'll have to talk to your local Future Shop but I don't see why they wouldn't be able to clean out the laptop. They'll run diagnostics on the laptop first to ensure that it's not some other problem and then will provide an estimate. 


Have you also make sure that the fans are working properly and the vents are not full of dust?
