Clean heat sink on toshiba satellite


Turn off the Satellite laptop and flip it over so you can see the bottom. Push the battery latch towards the outside of the laptop and remove the battery.


Locate the heat sink panel, which will be next to, or including, the two fans that you can see. Unscrew the two to three screws that are holding that panel down, and remove them.


A few models of Satellite laptops use Torx sized-8 screws instead of Phillips.

Unplug the cables running from the two fans to the control board.


You can see the cables coming up from under the fans.

Then unscrew the two to three screws on the fans, and pull up to remove the fan unit from the laptop.


If your Satellite heat sink panel does not uncover the fans as well as the heat sink, ignore this step.

Remove the four screws that surround the heat sink.

Then move the heat sink back and forth to disconnect it from the CPU.


If your laptop shuts down by itself without any reason, check the heat sink first.

Overheating is a very common problem among Toshiba laptops.


Lift up on the heat sink to remove it from the unit.

If the CPU got caught on the heat sink and comes off as well, grasp it by the edges and peel it off the heat sink.


Turn the screw on the side of the CPU socket to unlock it, then place the CPU back in its socket and lock it again.


Blow compressed air into the heat sink and the fans until the dust is removed.

Then blow the air onto the control board to remove loose dust from there as well.


Place some Isopropyl alcohol onto your cloth, or a small brush, and clean the processor and the control board area around the processor.


You will also want to wipe up the thermal grease that is on these components. Make a note of the area where you removed the thermal paste.


Reapply a layer of thermal grease in the areas where you removed it.

The lid of the thermal grease container will have an applicator.

Just spread the grease over the components.

Replace the heat sink, then the fans and finally the heat sink panel cover.


hope this helps

Clean heat sink


Yes you can, remove the cover off the desktop computer to get access to the fan and heat sink over the CPU.
Use a stiff brush to loosen the dust off the fan and heat sink and vacuum the dust off the fan and heat sink. You may need to use a can of compressed air to blow the dust off the fan and heat sink then vacuum the dust out.

When you try to turn the tv on, all you get is a blinking red light, if you unplug for awhile, sometime it will come on.


Symptom: tv turns on, tv clicks once, red light comes on. Then, tv either works for a while, followed by a click, no video, normal sound and flashing red light; or, tv immediately clicks, no video, no sound, red light flashes. If that is the problem, you need to replace the convergence ICs. I had to do this twice. The two convergence ICs are mounted on palm-sized aluminum heat sinks. The heat sinks are soldered to the main circuit board. There are 4 pins soldered to the board for each heat sink, and 18 pins soldered to the board for each IC. Some of the heat sink pins are a bit difficult to desolder. The pins for the ICs are not difficult to desolder, but you must be careful not to overheat them. The heat sink and the IC come out as a unit, after all pins are desoldered. The IC is screwed to the heat sink. The correct replacement IC is a Sanyo STK392-110. I got mine from B&D Enterprises. They were not expensive. The new ICs need to be mounted to the heat sink with a heat transfer paste. I used Arctic Silver from my computer processor heat sink. Installation of the heat sink/IC assembly is a bit tricky, since you have to align all 18 IC pins and the 4 heat sink pins. When all the pins are visible through the holes in the circuit board, resolder everything. The TV should now work. Be sure to replace both ICs. My first repair was done by a technician, who obviously only replaced one. That repair only lasted a couple years, before the problem returned.

I put a new power supply & heatsink with fan in my system & now I can't get it to power on. The heat sink was VERY hard to get on. I even put the old power supply back in & it won't power on....


If your CPU is sticked on the heat sink due to heat sink cement, could have damaged your CPU pins. Those CPUs like AMD and IBM Desktops we need to unassembled the same by tilting method. If your CPU pins are damaged, remove your CPU from heat sink by the help of a chisel type screw driver and clean both faces of heat sink and CPU. Do not scratch, use isopropyl alcohol to remove heat sink cement. Inspect any pins are dented or damaged. Align pins, if broken solder with help of a goldsmith. Reinsert the CPU in motherboard socket, apply a little portion heat sink cement in cpu face and re fix heat sink and recheck the motherboard.

When i start up the xbox it has no video, only sound.


Its possible for you to fix the problem your self.
how ever the fix may not last long .

Ok hear we go

find a video on how to strip the box down to the P.C. board.
pull the board out of the chaise by the small heat sink only
do not disturb the big heat sink at all or you will break the
seal an get 2 reds ( over heating)

Now that you have the main board in your hand
flip it over a carefully very carefully pry off the x clamp
bracket holding down the small heat sink for the G.P.U.

remove the heat sink from the board ,take out the four
studs under the heat sink . clean the gray heat sink off
the top of the two chips with rubbing alcahole ,do the
same with the heat sink then apply some heat sink compound
to the chips place the heat sink back on the chip
get four 10-32 by 3/8 long and EVENLY screw down
the heat sink Not too tightly ( snug not tight) .

Put the unit back together ,leave out the white fan
shroud plug everything back in and leave the fan
hanging out .

Now plug in the power and a/v cable place and hold
the fan over the Large heat sink for C.P.U. and turn on
the power .I should take 4-5 min till the fan gets up
to full then another 3-5 min to over heat Two red light
be ready to unplug the second this happens .
let it cool down for about 15-20 min and you should
have restored your video feed. I cant say how
long it will last .

if you have any questions feel free to email me

Rob

Take some heat sink compound
that you can buy from raido shack




now that that you have the main P.C. board in your hand.

Heat Sink


Just to answer your question about the heat sink arms being attached, yes it is imperative, should the heat sink fall off or isn't applied firmly your cpu could overheat and either fry it or causing severe damage to it.

I bought a faulty heat sink once for one of my old computers, put it in and ran the computer found out a little too late that the heat sink fan wasn't running.

After a while the screen flickers and then shuts off and won't restart. Especially in hot weather


Thomas,
I am not sure if this is what I experienced, but it won't hurt to take a look at what I did.

I had a similar problem.
My TV started to flicker and I put a new bulb in. The new bulb did not help, even if it is good to replace after a couple thousand hours.
I found out that my heat sink, which is sitting on the CPU with the mirrors came loose and the unit overheated and shut off after flickering a while.
Try to take the lower back panel off and you see a heat sink which is sitting in the center of a aluminum sheet metal piece. Disconnect the wires which are attached to the circuit board behind the sheet metal. Then take off the screws holding the sheet metal and pull it gently off. It will take a little force, but it does not damage anything. Now you see the heat sink on the circuit board held by a latch going across the heat sink.
On the upper right corner you will find the handle to open the latch. Once you did it , you can take the heat sink off and see the main CPU (as I took the latch off, my heat sink fell off).
On my heat sink the Heat Sink Compound Paste creating the connection between the CPU and the heat sink dried out and became brittle, son there was no connection anymore and the heat couldn’t be transported out through the heat sink, which is cooled by a fan on the left.
I took the brittle Heat Sink Compound Paste off and applied a generous portion of the one that I bought at Radio Shack. I used a Silicone-Base Heat Sink Compound which ran $4.99 excl. tax.
After applying the paste put the heat sink gently in and when you do, you will feel like a suction indicating that you have a connection between the CPU and the heat sink.
Now you need to put all parts back together.

If you are not familiar with electronics and those wires or wouldn’t hurt or would be wise to mark the connectors and to make pictures before removing them. This will save you a lot of frustration.

I hope this helps you and brings your TV back to life. My TV was cutting out after 25 minutes and runs now like a charm.
Good luck.

PS: If you experience a black screen with vertical stripes (mine were white and green) then most likely the light engine needs to be replaced, I had this after 9 months and got it fixed under warranty

Over heating and how to change admin password


Assuming yours is windows xp.

go to start->control panel->useraccounts->
select the admin account. side list see change the password.
you have to input the old one to change the new one.

and overheating is caused by damaged heat sink interface material or even damaged heat sink.

if interface material is damaged then replace it with the intel original heat sink interface material or cooler master material.
if heat sink is damaged then select the appropriate heat sink for your cpu.
my recommendation other that original cpu coolers is cooler master cpu coolers. very less cost but superb effective against processor overheating.

Maybe you missed something really simple. Below is the official link for your Gateway NX860. But, it doesn't talk about replacing motherboard or full disassembly. This may help if you missed something, like removing the optical drive fully out of the bay.
