I've been having over heating problems. I have opened and clean, and re-gooped the heatsink and had it work nicely for several months. Then today it did it again. So I opened it up and did the clean and goop thing again. However, when put back together it will not power up.
I can see that the power cord is connected via a little blue light.. but when the button is pressed to turn it on... nothing. Any suggestions?

With a cloth but make sure none of it gets on the other circuits because it could fry them just clean it right off and apply new thermal compound .....theres also clips on the side of the heat sink push them down and out
this is a common fault with this laptop, the only way to repair this is to strip the laptop, remove the mother board, heatsink and fan under the heatsink you will see the nvidia chip this needs to be heated to 480C for about 5 mins only heat the nvidea chip nothing else! paste chips and replace heatsink fan etc laptop should now be fixed, remember to clean fan whilst it is out as a clogged fan probably caused the fault in the first place
Beethoven 9 is not part of the service pack. Go to microsoft and download the service pack as is. If you don't have a fully registeredwindows program, you will have problems until you register it. I've downloaded all service packs and updates for the past 7 years on different levels of windows without any problems. You must have them registered to prove you have an authentic purchased program, not something copied from someone elses setup disks.
We purchased 10 of these for our dealers since most of them have space constrains. I found that I had to reapply the thermal compound on just about all of them, since they all had a problem of spinning up the fan and then shutting down.
What you do is get some MX-2 Thermal Compound --> Open the case with the one screw on the back --> Once open, undo the 4 screws that hold down the heatsink - the copper looking thing - the fans stay in the case. The screws will NOT COME OUT. Just leave them attached to the heatsink. --> Take some cleaning alcohol and put some on some cloth. Then use the cloth to wipe the old thermal compound (grey goop) off the CPU and the Heatsink. --> Apply a couple "drops" of the MX-2 on the CPU and use a credit card to spread is it over the CPU. NOT TOO THICK. In fact, I found a complete coverage, while trying to get it as thin as possible seems to get the best cooling effect. --> Re-apply the heatsink by screwing in the screws one by one, switching to the next screw which is diagonal to the previous one. This way even pressure is applied to the headsink. --> Close the case and refit the case screw.
All of our computers have worked great after that fix. Hope it works for you.
It sounds like a thermal shut down when the processor over heats,one thing it might be is that the heat sink is not seated properly on the processor.When removing the heat sink make sure you have thermal paste to place between the processor and heat sink.That should give you a good starting point.
