Dell Inspiron 1521 Disassembly

My laptop has been slowing down for a while, feeling warmer than usual, and I thought I smelled something burning the other day. So I decided to take it apart and do some routine maintanance. After I took the whole thing apart I found that there was a lot of dust and build up on the internal fan. Also most of the thermal paste had .. I dunno, evaporated? So anyway, I cleaned her up, put on some new paste for the CPU and she's running like she used to.
