Question about HP Pavillion ZV6000 Athlon 64 3500+ 15.4in WideScreen w/ 512MB/80GB/DVDRW/Flash Slot (PCLHCA6435512WWD) PC Notebook
Ok. So I have the laptop apart, no problems. I also ordered a new (and correct fan) to replace the old fan making noise.
Now, with the new (and old) fan there was a "sticky thing" attached to the fan base, so that when you installed the fan it was over top of the ATI Graphics chip.
Now, with the old fan,this sticky thing was actually on the ATI chip.
SO...does this sticky thing stay on the fan base and just sit over the ATI chip or does it actually go on the ATI chip as a thermal paste would on a CPU Chip?
I had a similar problem on my zv6000, but I've tracked it down to the fan in the middle (not the one above the CPU with the heatsink).
For anyone else that doesn't feel like taking your laptop apart twice (once to get the part number and twice to put the new fan in after you get it online, etc.), the fan is a Sunon Maglev GC 056015VH-A. HP doesn't carry them in the parts store anymore, but I ordered mine online from an independent retailer.

I assume the "sticky thing" is on the heatsink and the fan is attached to the heat sink. Then yes the "sticky thing" (ie thermal paste) should be placed on the ATI chip.
