This depends on the CPU and the heat sink. The heat sink is fastened to the socket on the motherboard on two sides. It will be fastened to a tab on each side. In all likelyhood, the heat sink will have some sort of handle on it. AMD processors these days have a little lever that must be moved from the far right position up to the center. This loosens the heat sink and you can reach down to unhook first the side with the lever from the socket and then the back side. Intel processors seem to have a flat metal piece that must be pushed down to relieve tension on the clamp. As you do so, you have to get down by the socket on the motherboard and push the metal clamp away from the socket. This takes some doing, as it's quite tight. Once you have released the one side, the second side is loose and can be unfastened.
The heat sink can now be pulled up (use a slight twisting motion if possible to break the seal between the heat sink and the CPU. If the computer is several years old, the seal will be hard to break.

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

Does not boot, no beep, no display, fans running on high speed


Try blowing the dust out of the inside, around the vents, around the fans and by the cpu and heat sink.

Also remove the fan as it sits on the cpu and heat sink. Then remove the heat sink that sits on the cpu, then remove the cpu by releasing the latch on the side of the bay it sits in (remember how the cpu goes back into the bay). Now clean off the old dried up thermal paste on top of the cpu and on the heat sink that sits on the cpu. Put the cpu back into the bay and secure the latch. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste to the CPU and Heat Sink. Put everything back together then reboot.

If the thermal paste has dried or is too thin to keep the unit cool it's like metal touching metal and shorts out the system so it can't boot.

Emachine w3609 cpu overheating


Easy Fix.. Computers over heat because either a fan is not working, Dust has clogged the vents around the fans, CPU and Heat Sink or the Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has become hard or too thin to keep it cool.

Remove the cover from the computer and set it aside then turn the computer on. When you hit the power button to turn on the computer make sure you hear and see the constant blowing of the fans. There will be a fan that is on the Power Supply where the power cord plugs in and a fan on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. If not, replace it. If the fans are ok get a can of compressed air from a local computer store and blow out the dust from the fans, power supply and all throughout the computer. In order to apply Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink you will have to remove the fan that sits on top of it and is normally secured by screws or some type of latching device. Once the fan is removed you can remove the heat sink and it too will be secured by screws or a latch catching device. Clean the old paste off the heat sink and off of the area it sits on. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste to both and reassemble. Thermal Paste is available at local computer stores for under $20

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.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215 and it keeps shutting down and getting hot. I don't think the internal fan is working. Can this be fixed and is it expensive?


Replacing the fan on the CPU or the GPU, Graphics card, is actually very simple and the fan will run about $20 to $25 depending on what type of fan you get and where. Aside from a new fan you will need a small tube of heat sink compound. The fan just clips on to the CPU. Make sure you get a fan that is designed for your CPU type or it will not fit properly. For instance, if you have a P-3 CPU you can't fit it with a P-2 Chip or P-4 chip, they won't mount correctly and subsequently they won't work. When you go to Best Buy or the computer shop your to buy your part tell them what type of CPU you have and that you want the cooling fan and the heat Sink Compound to mount it with. They will be able to direct you to the proper fan Type. Also, while you have it opened up take the opportunity to use canned Air to blow the dust out of the machine. If you are doing what is called Over Clocking it is important that you know you may have burned the CPU out as this causes the CPU to heat up more than it would if you just had it installed for the proper speed. The old fan will be difficult to remove because the old heat sink compound will have formed a bond between the fan heat sink and the CPU itself. If you have to do any prying to remove the old fan make sure you do so carefully and make sure you clean the old heat sink compound off the CPU before you try mounting the new fan. When you apply the new Heat sink compound you want to place the compound in the center of the CPU and let the heat sink spread the compound out in a thin layer. This compound needs to be spread evenly so it forms a good bond between the Heat sink and the CPU itself to properly transfer the heat from the CPU to the heat sink so the fan can properly cool the CPU.

Laptop won't boot turns on then off after about


Hello,

Your Laptop seems to be full of dust - Maybe your CPU Heat sink FAN cannot turn because if this THUS causing your laptop to heat up and shut down again to prevent your CPU from receiving damage due to high temperature.

Close your laptop lid, then put the unit on its backlcd. Make sure you disconnect the Battery and the A/C Power chord. With the emty battery slot is facing you, take note of the screw that is facing you to the right on the bottom cover. There might be others like this in the same area. The cover that you need to remove is of rectangular shape, and the largest cover.

When you have removed it you should see the CPU Heat sink and a FAN. This is the part where you blow the unit out at that spot with compressed air so that the dirt will no longer block the heat from venting away from the laptop mainboard/cpu.Please check if the CPU FAN is still turning licenly. If it doesn't turn or very difficult - replace .

[ADVANCED]
Then, remove the 3 screws from the CPU heat sink and thereby remove the HEAT sink completely. Remove the CPU Heat sink FAN and clean it as nessesary. Use a small flat to switch the CPU from closed to open and remove it. Then clean it with a cloth and ethanol - make sure you remove all dirt and old heat sink paste on top if it. make sure you do not touch the bottom of the CPU and handle the pins carefully.

When you are done, place the CPU back and reaaply a eyedrop of fresh heatsink paste onto the CPU, lock the CPU switch again. Then clean the backside of the CPU heat sink where it rests on the CPU. When you are done with that, place the CPU heat sink back onto the CPU then screw the 3 screws back onto the CPU heat sink and onto the mainboard. Keep the sequence in mind. Reconnect the CPU Heat sink FAN to power on the mainboard with the cable then place the cover back onto it. Tighten all screws again and reconnect battery and A/C Power chord.

Computer keeps shutting down on its own.


This is a difficult problem because I cannot determine the exact cause because of limited information.
This problem will need to be solved by trying one thing at a time.
Do not do all these together.
1. Reseat the RAM.
2. Remove the RAM and get it tested at your friendly computer store.
3. Reseat the hard disk
4. Run a virus scanning program on your computer/laptop
5. Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan
6. Loosen the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly and remove/vacuum the dust.
7. Try removing the heat-sink, remove the old heat-sink compound and apply a new coating of heat-sink compound to the CPU and re-attach the heat-sink to the CPU.
8. Do a system repair with the Windows installation CD
9. If nothing works then re-install Windows, plus the laptop's device drivers and your programs.
You may need assistance from a computer savy friend to help you. Let me know how things work out.
