    IF you go to to technical support, select your laptop, and view the manual, it should have the instructions to remove the components.

    Tbh if its under warranty, phone dell, it will be fixed for this time tomorrow. Even if its not under warranty, phone them, they will diagnose the fault over the phone

    Most of dell laptops keyboard needs coming off first before you can get to the motherboard components. Unscrew and take off the keyboard and then you should be able to reach the fan etc.
