Want to clean laptop but warranty sticker in the way

Hi I have an acer laptop still under warranty, but I want to open the case and clean the fans, however one of the screws is covered by a sticker that says Warranty will be voided if removed. Should I instead bring to acer customer service and ask them to clean?

CPU heatsink usually have such sticker.
Just try to avoid the label during cleaning.
Meaning if you are using Alcohol, spray on the brush and brush it.

You better call first and see if they would clean for you. I highly doubt they will.

This.

Unless the laptop keeps on auto restart, the tech will so no need to open up to check/clean anything and taiji "everything is working normally". Case closed

If the tech actually clean it for customer, then is heng kena hardworking tech

How often do you guys clean your laptop? Actually if it is working fine there is no reason to open up the case to clean it right

If it is not overheating, no need to open and clean.

As for the warranty sticker, it is meant to prevent sellers from tampering/ altering the specs. At least I validated before that breaking the seal will not void warranty unless they investigated and realized that you damaged something as a result of the tampering. In any case, still best to reconfirm with them since I don't work for Acer and can't guarantee this.

Side note if you feel your laptop is slow and overheating.
Opt time for a reformat, ensure that all the driver are installed
correctly for Windows 10.

Best to load drivers from manufacturer not through MS update.
How to do this is simple.
Download all the driver first before reformat.

After reformat, do not plug in LAN cable or connect VIA WIFI.
Install all the driver properly than connect internet.
Do also try to buy a NB cooler if you are not using one.
