    Yes, some people have had problems with their screens overheating. Some point that touchscreen failure is due to heat. Take out the internal speaker and replace it with a fan. for how to do this.

    thanks guys, I don't have a touchscreen so that shouldn't matter but maybe I will try the fan anyway.
    Cheers

    now the question is should it blow into the LCD case or blow out of? which would do the better job?

    In my opinion, a one fan setup should have the fan acting as an exhaust. This will creat a vacuum inside the case, drawing air in through cracks in the case.

    A single intake fan will create a pressurized environment inside the case, and more pressure = more heat.

    High temps will fade the color on your screen and could premature the life of the lcd and backlight.
