I’d be careful about using a vacuum cleaner on the inside of the computer as it can cause static discharge and zap your components.

@laomusicarts do you know where I might be able to get an HD-74501 screwdriver. New or Used?

Since my 2008 Macbook Pro has been overheating for a while I tried this. Unfortunately everything inside is quite clean: no dust in the fans or heat-sinks.

The fans run quite well , and get going pretty fast as the device heats up. Any other ideas are welcome, This was a GREAT machine and I miss using it.
